Ferida hoop earrings by Jennifer Behr

While we’re relatively content to take a pared-down approach to collecting certain accessories, we like to have a wide range of earrings at the ready to add interest to an outfit (or match our mood). Here, we’ve rounded up 10 pairs we’re currently coveting. From textured gold hoops to bold, black drops, these pieces belong in any jewelry box.

GoldEn Rules

With their warm tones and texture, the Farida hoop earrings by Jennifer Behr (left) available from Washington, D.C.-based Tuckernuck and pearl Colette hoops by Stvdio Brooklyn (right) available from Charlottesville, Virginia-based Eloise are wonderfully versatile—but will make a major statement.

dark and dramatic

Sophisticated and a bit unexpected, black accessories, like the Lizzie Fortunato night bloom earrings (left) available from Scarpa in Charlottesville, Virginia, and geode earrings (right) available from Louisa Guild Jewelry in Chattanooga, Tennessee, are the perfect choice when you’re looking to go a bit bold.

Beautifully bright

When the need for a pop of color arises, you can’t go wrong with a coral accent. Enter: carnelian and diamond earrings (left) available from Palm Beach, Florida and Hamptons, New York-based Tamara Comolli and Victorian revival 14-karat gold coral earrings (right) available from Richmond, Virginia-based Carreras Jewelers.

TIMELESS WITH A TWIST

Sometimes, you want to play it safe—but that certainly doesn’t have to mean boring. Case in point: the classic 18-karat yellow gold pearl drop earrings (left) available from Laura Pearce Ltd. in Atlanta, Georgia, and effortlessly chic diamond cluster stud earrings (right) available from Spicer Greene Jewelers in Asheville, North Carolina.

the perfect amount of edge

If you’re seeking something eye-catching to add a bit of interest to an outfit, look no further than the Getana black enamel and diamond hoops (left) available from JB Hudson Jewelers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, or black-and-white woven hoops (right) available from The Wardrobe in Miami, Florida.
