Welcome to the Renaissance of Vintage-Inspired Earrings

Little did Matthieu Blazy know that, when he introduced Bottega Veneta’s ultra-viral drop earrings in 2023, he’d open the door for the return of oversized sculptural earrings. That’s led to a deluge of vintage-inspired ear adornments that borrow from the drama of ’80s and ’90s accessories, endorsed — and catapulted to trend superstardom — by celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Elsa Hosk.

Big metallic earrings (in gold or silver) in both classic and abstract shapes — akin to something your mother or grandmother might’ve worn decades ago —  are cropping up left and right. They offer a simple, timeless elegance that can elevate something as simple as jeans and a tee with little effort. 

While shoppers are turning to vintage more and more (it’s never been easier to find a pair on Etsy or Depop), there are plenty of modern takes on this type of jewelry from brands like Heaven Mayhem, Oma The Label and Aureum. You can shop our edit of vintage-inspired earrings, below.
