10 Must-Have Earrings for Summer 2023

6th July 2023

The Cornish Jewellery Edition

Summer’s in full swing, and so is the social calendar, which calls for lots of stylish summer outfits!  If you’re looking for an easy way to jazz up a favourite dress in your wardrobe, rather than investing in a whole new ensemble, a pair of stunning earrings can do just that! Enhancing your look and making you feel beautiful, they really do add the finishing touch.

We’ve selected 10 pairs of earrings that you’ll want to wear everywhere this summer. From pretty studs to elegant drop earrings, all are handcrafted by the finest Cornish jewellery designers.

Everyday earrings

Perfect for day-to-day wear, Lucy Kemp’s Dotty Circle Studs are wonderfully different. Made of Sterling Silver ‘dotty wire,’ these dainty rings have a lovely texture and the fact that they’re lightweight makes them oh-so-comfy on the ear.

Eye-catching ocean blues

The Blue Water Bar Drop Earrings by SilverHare Jewellery are inspired by the maker’s first visit to the Isles of Scilly. Drawing on the area’s captivating aquamarine waters, these earrings have a vibrant turquoise enamel set into recycled fine silver. They catch the light in the same way as the sea – sometimes appearing deep blue, and other times a vibrant turquoise.

Art deco style

Those with a passion for all things Art Deco will love Budeful’s Sterling Silver Sunbeam Earrings. Spreading sunshine and happiness, these striking drop earrings are designed and made in Cornwall from recycled silver.

Little stars

The Kerenza Star Studs, by South Crofty Collection, are delicately crafted with a textured finish to make them sparkle in the light. Not only do they look gorgeous, but they also have some history behind them as they are made from pure Cornish tin – the remaining tin, in fact, from the last tin mine to close in Cornwall! Fabulous for 10th wedding anniversaries, which are celebrated with the gift of tin, this is a unique piece of Cornish jewellery that can be worn for a lifetime.

Statement earrings

Carole Allen is a jewellery designer and a true artist. Her Silver & Enamel Mussel Shell Earrings are cast from actual mussel shells found on Gwithian Beach and have the same deep blue and shimmering silver tones as real ocean molluscs. Hanging from organically shaped silver discs, these shell earrings look fabulous, and attract many a compliment!

Earrings that reflect nature

Cornish Jewellery designer, C Jane Jewellery, draws inspiration from her surrounding coast and countryside and has modelled her sterling silver, Curling Fern Earrings on the shape and texture of the humble fern leaf found in many a Cornish hedgerow. These earrings move gracefully on the ear and add a touch of glamour to even the most casual of outfits.
