Statement earrings can be defined as "earrings that invite attention from others by demonstrating bold, original, and unique designs with innovative construction and material combinations". They have one or more of the following design elements:
Colors that are bold or eye-catching
Dangle earrings (also known as drop earrings) hang from the bottoms of the earlobes. Their lengths range from a centimeter or two to brushing against the wearer's shoulders. A pierced dangle earring is typically held in place by a thin wire that passes through the earlobe. In the French hook design, the wire passes through the earlobe piercing without closure, though small plastic or silicone retainers are sometimes used on ends. The post-attachment design is rarely used in dangle earrings. Some variants attach without the need for piercing.
Barbell earrings are named after they resemble a barbell, which typically takes the form of a metal bar with an orb on either end. One of these orbs is permanently attached to the barbell, while the other can be removed to allow it to be inserted into a piercing. There are several variations on this basic design, such as barbells with curves or angles in the earring bar.
Huggy earrings are hoops that closely follow the curve of the earlobe rather than dangling beneath it as regular hoop earrings do. Stones are commonly channel set in huggy earrings.
Ear thread, earth reader, ear string, or threader earrings are made of a thin chain that fits into the ear hole and hangs down at the back. People sometimes add beads or other materials to the chain so that it dangles with beads below the ear.
Traditional dangling bell-shaped earrings are worn primarily by women of the Indian subcontinent.
Chandelier earrings resemble chandeliers in appearance, with a design that dangles below the ear and is wider at the base than the top.
