STATEMENT EARRINGS BY CARLA AMORIM
I discovered Carla Amorim creations in Brazil and tried on her feminine statement earrings during BASELWORLD. She is known for using a remarkable variety of precious Brazilian stones, gold and diamonds.
During our visit, I had the almost impossible task of choosing my favourite statement earrings and rings! The collection is extensive and every piece has so many unique qualities, unlike anything I have ever seen before.
Carla Amorim is famous amongst the jewellery crowd for thrilling designs and endless creativity. Since 1992 Carla’s creative work has had three main influences: the Brazilian nature in all its forms, architecture, geometric lines by Oscar Niemeyer and her Catholic faith. Carla Amorim skillfully transforms the dynamic Brazilian energy throughout her jewellery.
When shopping for statement earrings choose to suit your face shape. An oval face shape means that you will look fabulous in just about in any design. A round face could suit the longer earrings, as these draw attention to the cheekbones. If your face is thin, try on square, circular, and triangular designs. For square face shapes, choose statement earrings with round edges such as hoops and teardrop shapes.
To get a real wow factor, the right colour of the statement earrings should complement your face’s colouring and accentuate the eyes without competing with them. The right combination will get the compliments rolling in!
If you live in London away from the sunshine beaches, stick to a smart and sassy look with white gold and platinum. For those living in the South of France or Brazil, you will look at your best accentuating those bronze tans with yellow and rose gold.
Do not forget that any statement earrings look their best when they are worn on their own, too much will take the attention away from your sensational studs!
I recommend statement earrings made from titanium if you find many larger earrings too heavy. Titanium has been a viable option for jewelry only since 1990 and is lighter in weight than many other metals despite its strength! From my personal experience, all statement earrings should be available in titanium. It’s a metal that really goes the distance as I love wearing my statement earrings all night long!
