Like a thigh-high slit or bright red lipstick, sculptural earrings have the innate ability to pack major punch to any ensemble. Sure, a two-carat diamond would do the trick, but we’ll promise you that it’ll be hard pressed to start a conversation with so much fervour like these metal dazzlers will.
A copious blend full of geometric lines and sinuous curves, and dripping with Art Deco aesthetics (naturally), these sculptural earrings add an instant upgrade to any ensemble, especially when you’re seeking mileage throughout your entire day. We’re talking from owning that board room to after-dark activities here. We’ll also take a moment to point out that these are accessories that have the ability to negate some seriously bad hair days.
Elevate your accessory game and show your personality loud and proud with these game-changing sculptural earrings.
With an ethos that revolves around “creation without destruction”, Kimberly McDonald’s fine jewellery collection is a curious mix of raw, untreated materials that stem from her passion for agate and geode. These one-of-a-kind earrings reflect her organic approach to jewellery, with crystal quartz-lined geode formations that are highlighted by 18-karat gold and studded with 2.06-carats of shimmering diamonds to show off its unadulterated beauty.
In toying with the idea of tautness and negative space, Hannah Martin’s Tension earrings sees two subtly curved rows of diamonds held together only by sapphire cabochons on either end. The juxtapositions continue with the idea of using masculine industrial fixings with sensual feminine lines. The earrings can also be worn on the reverse for an edgier look thanks to its sculptural knife edge finishing, teasing flashes of diamonds occasionally.
Known for their penchant in mixing avant-garde shapes with Art Deco aesthetics, husband-and-wife duo Kavant and Sharart’s architectural pieces often catch the eye for being otherworldly. Both princess and baguette-cut diamonds are used within this stark 18-karat yellow gold pair, its simple but strong geometric lines inspired in parts by the Cubism movement and abstract art. The earrings and ear jackets can be worn together or separately, giving versatility to an otherwise bold piece.
Launched as part of the Brilliant collection, Fernando Jorge’s Clarity earrings perfectly encapsulate refreshing sun rays with the clever use of 18-karat yellow gold and diamonds.

Having gained notoriety for his ability to create pieces that are infused with a sense of strength, Greek Designer Nikos Koulis continues his unique amalgamation of Art Deco and futuristic cues in his award-winning Oui collection. Besides black enamel that bolden the strong, structural lines in these earrings, Koulis also integrated white diamonds throughout, which cascade down in a resplendent fringe for a bit of old world glamour.
