THE NEW EAR­RING TRENDS: CLIP-ONS

Female (Singapore) - - NEWS - – KYS

No pierc­ings needed – clip-on ear­rings are all the rage now.

Be­fore you start think­ing Glow and tacky ’80s fash­ion, here’s a jew­ellery nerd fact: Ear­rings with a clasp back were in­vented in the ’30s, and reigned right up till the ’70s. (Be­fore punk, pierc­ings were re­ally frowned upon. Plus clip-ons are just so much more con­ve­nient and san­i­tary.) How they be­came so un­der­rated beats us, but their ma­jor comeback in all forms will re­in­state how they’re for ev­ery­one – from Ba­len­ci­aga’s over­sized, Glow- ap­pro­pri­ate mono ear­ring to Bul­gari’s High Jew­ellery Ser­penti drop ear­rings drip­ping in rubel­lites, emer­alds and di­a­monds. From top: Metal and pearl, $350, Tory Burch. Tin, glass and brass, $3,780, Saint Lau­rent. 18K gold with pink rhodium, US$4,500 (S$6,120), www.lau­renxkhoo.com. Brass and strass, $410 (sold singly), Ba­len­ci­aga
