The crystal earring is back in a big way, as seen on Mui Mui, and Celine catwalks. Marking the intial start towards the party season, your statement earring for evening must include crystals. Here are some of our top picks to help you achieve shining star status:

Punk Perfection

With nails, studs, piercings and barbed wire, the muscular look led by the Sex Pistols spirit at Junya Watanabe started its advance on the runways before it takes to the streets.

Punk clearly is not dead, with aggressive jewellery taking over catwalks from McQueen, Alexander Wang, and Versace. This style can be difficult to make look feminine and effortless, but Thomas have some our go to choices this season:

Thomas Sabo Ear Studs from the Kathmandu range, part of the Sterling Silver Collection. The relief-like structure of the Kathmandu Spike ear studs translates punk flair into modern jewellery design.

Feminine reinterpretation of a timeless icon – dazzling diamond embellishment makes these small skull ear jackets dazzle and emphasises their enigmatic aura. Who says punk can’t be pretty?

These cross earrings are an eye-catcher: Magnificently adorned with stones, they give that feminine edge to a punk staple. As an artistic interpretation of the Victorian style, the creation is also a sign of inner bearing and strength. Wear only one for the most fashion forward look this autumn.
