Wondering where to find head-turning statement earrings in Singapore? Here’s a list of local brands that stock amazing ear candy.
Attention-grabbing jewellery is a fashion trend that won’t die (not that we’re complaining!). We aren’t gonna lie: Statement earrings are one of our favourite ways to pull together an oft-repeated or lazy day outfit. But don’t just take our word for it. Try on the trend for size by swapping your minimalist studs for a pair of massive hoops, poppin’ drop earrings or colourful tassels.

Equal parts fun and vibrant, Lovelystrokes’ wearable art adds life to your everyday look. Each piece is meticulously hand-crafted so no two designs are the same.

Psst: All designs are inspired by everyday sights and founder Chloe’s travels around the world.

Studio Mu Yu
We love a good artisanal woodcraft piece, and homegrown brand Studio Mu Yu does that perfectly with its trinkets. Each design elegantly features wood in different hues and textures. Oh, and for local lovin’ with a splash of nostalgia, check out its Masak-Masak series. From breakfast to dessert, you’ll be taken back in time with comfort food from your childhood that you can wear on your earlobes. What better way to make a statement?

We spend more time than we’d like to admit scrolling through Thrifty Thieves’ collection of earrings. On the site, they’re each photographed with the corresponding Pantone colour chip – yes, we’re suckers for cute details. Chunky resin danglers are the signature, though the collection also includes a few pieces that give a nod to the rattan look (another trend that also won’t quit). Plus, these outfit-elevating babies come at pocket-friendly prices (along with a lovely handwritten note) and hypoallergenic hook options for sensitive lobes. So really, can you blame us for being #obsessed with this store?

Geometric shapes and summery hues reign supreme at this Etsy store that specialises in whimsical danglers handcrafted out of polymer clay. A splash of abstract patterns here, a touch of tassel embellishments there, each of Rouge Trinket’s statement earrings offer a pop of colour that lends itself well to an understated outfit. Oh, and did we mention no two pieces are the same? Follow Rouge Trinkets on Insta to see where the brand will be popping up next!

Loosely based on the African meaning of ‘bold’, Envet’s collection of earrings stands out as much as its name. The brand was created by local designer Anita Rusli to showcase distinct designs with intimate backstories inspired by her personal travels. For instance, the design of the ‘Evil Eye’ embellished tassels (pictured above) drew inspiration from her visit to Istanbul. Her collection of self-made earrings are also intricately fused with bright hues, customisable elements and metals that are suitable for sensitive skin (extra brownie points from us!).

Named after the word ‘rope’ in Bahasa Indonesia, it’s no surprise that this brand is known for tassel earrings made with ropes and knots. Sabah-born founder Lorraine Lee drew inspiration for this idea from her father, who tied knots as part of cognitive therapy after a brain injury. Fittingly, the label represents strength, hope and human connections. Get a lovely rope tassel pair from Zerrin, a multi-label online boutique that curates products and stories from thoughtfully-made brands like this one.

Featuring creations by art school graduates, painters, sculptors, illustrators and ceramicists, Inner Circle is all about one-of-a-kind designs. The crafters behind this collection explore and reimagine common materials like paper and wood, as well as arts and crafts techniques. That’s how the origami earrings collection was born. The bright little collection takes paper cranes to a whole new level, and other origami animals (like rabbits and goldfish) make an appearance too.

Derived from the French word modèle (meaning models or mannequin), Modelle’s pieces are designed to bring out your best catwalk strut every time you don these statement accessories. The eclectic and broad range of earrings (with everything from Coachella-style boho pieces to kitschy-cool statements) has something for every aesthetic. And judging by how fancy we feel when we wear these items, we say these folks have succeeded in their mission.
