In the continuing discussion of statement pieces, here’s another style to take stock of—the drop earring. Not just any drop earring, really. This one features tiers—sometimes graduated, sometimes not—dangling in a straight, swinging line. Most often, you’ll find gemstones comprising the look, but there are clever variations that are done up solely in metal, too. The most dramatic of them brush the shoulders, a style that evokes the maximalist look so many are currently after. But arguably more wearable are those shorter in length, though they don’t come up short on looks.
