Dangly drop earrings can always be depended upon to add the drama. As the quintessential party accessory, they dangle below the earlobe to delightfully sway back and forth with every movement.

Long and elaborate, dangle drop earrings highlight your jaw while adding length to your look, so are perfect when dressing up for parties. While they are fabulous, they’re also prone to catching in fabrics and hair so are best with pinned-up hairstyles and updos and especially ideal with off-the-shoulder or scoop necks tops and dresses to show off that lovely neck.

Effortlessly intriguing, always fun and stylish, drop earrings can be depended upon to bring the drama – so pop them on for instant telenovela passion.

The Cushion Brilliant Cut

Be calm: you are brilliant

A diamond or gem’s sparkle is determined by the shape it’s cut into. Gems possess a flawless, crisp shine from its facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, facets work as tiny mirrors, cut and arranged to maximise the diamond’s ability to draw in and reflect the light. This makes the gem more brilliant and sparkly than any other cuts and shapes. 

Welcome to the Cushion Brilliant Cut.

Love is a fine cushion to rest upon

Ivanka rocks them. Eva Longoria flashes them. Nick Minaj wears them on her birthday. Cushion Cut gemstones are the classic favourite that never goes out of style.

Synonymous with royalty, the Cushion Cut combines a square or rectangle cut with rounded corners – just as a pillow. This has been a classic cut for the last two hundred years and one of the most popular engagement diamond shapes today.

Brilliance takes time

Designed for maximum sparkle and a style victory, Cushion Mix Statement Studs can be worn solo or clipped to MYJS Mix Charms.

The Cushion Cut dates back to the earliest diamond cuts, through the modern-day cushion was inspired by the Old Mine Cut of the 1700s. During the 18th century, Brazil was the world’s diamond mining capital to maximise the carats from the rougher Brazilian diamonds that took less time to execute the cut. The Hope Diamond stands out as the most valuable cushion cut diamond of all time.

Simplicity is the key to brilliance

While the Cushion is similar to the Round Brilliant and Princess, the Cushion Cut presents a high level of brilliance and fire for a vintage look and feel that combines classic fashion with modern flair.

As a cheaper cut than the Round, Cushion still looks elegant and understated all at once while retaining a high level of shine. The design of the artful facets allows more light to flow through the gem.

Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, zircon and man-made crystals feature Cushion Cut for all the style and dazzle. With the popularity of Round and Princess Cuts, the Cushion offers a more unique choice for flashing your gemstones where it’s all about a soft look with a lot of sparkle.

What is soft is strong

MYJS Style Guide To Studs

Tell me about it, stud

Sandy Olsson

As the LBD of your jewellery box, studs add glamour to your outfit without breaking your look or being too subtle. Size never matters – big or tiny, the sparklier, the bolder, the better.

They’re a Princess Kate staple, Kimmy K wears them on the red carpet. Oprah knows how to rock them.

Studs are the perfect accessory for the modern woman who feels naked without an earring. They are the most popular style for everyday wear. As the definition of minimal chic and the unsung heroes of luxury, they are the adored jewellery staple, adding stunning symmetry to every outfit.

Versatile by design and suitable for all occasions, they are clean cut for classic looks for a put-together style. They are designed as a feature mounted onto post passing through the ear lobe and are a great base to your jewellery collection.

As a minimal style, they are subtle and blend well into a look without screaming for attention (we’re looking at you statement earrings).

Life isn’t perfect, but my studs can be

Petite and compact, studs lay snugly against the earlobe for subtle sparkle. They’re ideal for an active lifestyle, avoiding entanglement in hair, clothes and general living.

Studs have never gone out of fashion. With a rich past hailing from Asian to Egyptian and Roman Etruscan cultures across the ages, studs regained popularity in 1920s Art Deco though they evolved during the 1930s with a new clip back fitting replacing the old screw back. The new clip held them securely to the lobe without needing a piercing. This new stud and clip would be combined to hold a heavier stud or cluster statement earrings in place.

My stud is hotter than your coffee

Next time someone tells Bronx girls to take off their hoops, they can just say they’re dressing like a Congresswoman

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Nothing elevates your ear game like a pair of hoop earrings. Heralded by Rhianna and Zendaya on and off the red carpet, the style signature for JLO Jennifer Lopez and pioneered by Alicia Keys, Hoop Earrings are empowering, symbolic to the circle of unity, infinity and wholeness.

As one of the oldest accessories in human existence, Hoop earrings have significant meanings in cultures around the world.

Since Nubia 2500 BCE, Ancient Africans, Greeks and Minoans, Egyptians, Romans, Assyrians, Persians, Caribbeans, from Latinos to Southern Californian Cholas, NY Bronx, Vietnamese Hmong women and India’s Gadaba tribe, once worn by emperors, kings and queens as a proclamation of social status (as in, my hoop earring is bigger than your hoop earring), Hoops are a statement for unity and strength – not to mention powerful earlobes.

Hoops are empowering. Hoop earrings stand out.

You’re not quite dressed until a pair of hoops add swagger

Fashion tips

While fashions dictate our jewellery with large hair, headpieces and high collars, hoops have always persevered. 1920s updos with low-cut necklines, 1960s straight-hair and mod fashion, 1970 disco’s African and Latina renaissance and modern-day hip hop have kept hoop earring fashion alive and swinging. Hoops have gone so far as to be featured on Balenciaga, Versace and Marc Jacobs runways. 

There’s a reason why hoop earrings are popular: they never go out of style. As a crucial accessory to your jewellery box, dressed up or down, they rock all the way from a walk in the park right to the red carpet. Hoops are all about attitude – fearless and without a care in the world.

  • Hair tangled in hoops isn’t exactly cute so keep hair simple: back and up in ponytails or messy buns to accentuate the neck, face and collar bones.
  • Short hair loves hoops, adding a touch of romance to the pixie minx.
  • Pair to high necks, low necklines and bare shoulders.
  • Elongate necks for an illusion of length with big oval-shaped hoop earrings.
  • Match the width of your hoops to the width of your face: pair wider hoops to round and heart-shaped faces with thin hoops perfect for accentuating the features of narrow, long faces
  • Go boho with a stylishly wrapped-around head scarf and oversized hoops.
  • Effortlessly add lift your everyday casual outfits for a sleek fashionable look.
  • Look sophisticated while shopping with hoops elevating basic tees and jeans.
  • Add pop to monochrome outfits – black and hoops love each other dearly.
  • Need street-cred? Reach for hoops when you need sass, energy and a big personality to let everyone in the room know exactly who’s in charge.
  • Pair to red lips to really mean business.

The bigger the hoop, the bigger the love

Old Chola saying

Hoop earrings are always about adding edge. They’re for the bold, demanding and commanding attention. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore a bold red lip with striking gold hoops when she took her oath of office for the ultimate cultural statement.

As the visual cue to who’s the real bossb’tch around here, just remember to keep hair pulled back and a bare neckline for best results. And make sure those hoops move with fearless swagger.

Hoop earring fashion

When it comes to earring fashion, hoops are the quintessential piece of jewellery, transcending trends, time, cultures, stereotypes and personal style. The hoop earring is truly ubiquitous.

Hoop are an essential to every jewellery box with their neutral tone and the perfect match to every outfit. From intricate designs to featuring semi-precious stones, gems, pendants and cutouts, hoops can dress up, down, from jeans to a gown: hoop earrings go with everything.

Petite, understated and perfect for the modern woman-on-the-go, huggies strike the perfect balance of being small enough to wear comfortably all day, and bold enough to get noticed.
