The festive season always inspires the desire to play dress-up. And why not? It’s the perfect way to bring on the cheer. And while a dressy outfit is a good place to start, there’s nothing like a little jewellery to add a bit of celebratory sparkle. Today, a great look is defined by how strong your accessory game is and even more so with jewellery. So you just can't afford to drop the ball.

This festive season, we’ve been particularly drawn to statement earrings. They’re elaborate yet minimalistic, catchy yet not OTT — just the perfect way to complement your attire. No matter the occasion, you can always rely on a pair of festive earrings to accentuate your look. If you’re looking for a few suggestions, we’ve curated a couple of pieces that you simply must have in your festive wardrobe. Have a look…
