Earring Trends in 2021
There are certain styles of earrings that are big in style in 2021. The thing is, not all jewelry stores are keeping up with the major changes. Many stores and brands are falling behind the times. For example, American jeweler Alex + Ani was once on top of women’s jewelry trends—growing from $5 million to $500 million from 2010–2016. In 2021, they filed for bankruptcy.
So, you can’t rely on every pair of earrings a jewelry store is selling to be in style. Even famous brands are struggling to keep up with the new trends in jewelry (especially men’s jewelry) since the latest changes are so noteworthy.
If you know what to look for, however, you’ll be able to which store offers the best deal on diamond earrings that are in style in 2021.

Here are some of the biggest earring trends in 2021:
- Statement dangle earrings or diamond drop earrings with unique designs (both dramatic earring styles and blingy earring styles)
- Pearl earrings that combine vintage designs with a modern touch
- Colored gemstone earrings (especially sapphire, ruby, blue topaz, emerald, and birthstone earrings) with diamond accents, mixed colored gemstones
- Rose gold diamond earrings
- Unisex earrings/androgynous earring styles (such as unisex diamond studs)
- Long, waterfall-esque diamond earrings such as string diamond earrings, “shoulder duster” earrings, chandelier earrings
- Chain-link earrings (often paired with a gold chain necklace, chain link bracelet, or chain link ring)
- Black diamond earrings
- Real gold diamond hoop earrings, especially wearing two or more hoops in one ear
- Mixed metal earrings (such as earrings with sterling silver and gold, or wearing both sterling silver earrings and gold earrings)
Some of these earring trends for 2021 started gaining popularity earlier, but now they’re experiencing a renaissance. For example, pearl earrings started making a comeback in 2019, and now they’re in a golden age.
The reason why jewelry trends of 2021—including 2021 earring trends—are so exciting is that they’re at the height of a new movement in jewelry that prioritizes individual self-expression. Rather than wearing earrings that everyone has, to really be in style, you need a pair that suits you.
This means that unlike earring trends in past years, these won’t go out of style. The new emphasis on versatility means that you can continue to wear them as fashion styles change, finding new ways to style them.
Unique Diamond Stud Earrings
Have diamond stud earrings ever really gone out of style? We can’t say that they have. Diamond stud earrings are one of the most versatile types of earrings you can own, for men and for women. They elevate any outfit, don’t require much adjustment, and are simple to clean.
In 2021, the most popular diamond stud earrings are those that best show off the personality of the wearer. This means that unique design diamond studs, custom diamond stud earrings, and fine craftsmanship are really popular.
Furthermore, the popularity of unisex earrings means that women can shop the men’s section and vice versa. All that really matters when choosing diamond stud earrings is to pick a pair (or single diamond stud earrings, if you have only one pierced ear) that represents you.

Black Diamond Stud Earrings
Black diamonds are really interesting—there are many theories as to where they came from, including the leading theory that they come from outer space. They’re also the hardest substance on Earth—even harder than white diamonds.
Due to their hardness, black diamonds have been primarily used in industry, rather than jewelry. If you’re wondering, why aren’t black diamonds more popular? One surprising reason is that some people believe they might be cursed, after the events linked to the notorious Black Orlov diamond.
But now in 2021, it seems more people are getting over their superstitions. Will Smith clearly isn’t afraid of any curses, showing off his black diamond stud earrings. Even a young Justin Bieber wasn’t afraid to show off a pair of black diamond studs. Black diamond earrings are also popular with women, including Gwyneth Paltrow, who rocks a pair of black diamond hoop earrings.
