Bringing a touch of light and whimsy to your outfits, earrings are jewelry that symbolize femininity and creativity. From classic pearl earrings to creole earrings, we've chosen a selection of elegant earrings in a variety of styles and materials, in silver or gold, to bring out your complexion this spring and as summer approaches...

Which earrings are right for you?

Yes, even when it comes to choosing earrings, there are a few tips to follow to make sure they match your face shape, personal style and body type. First and foremost, respect the proportions of your upper body, and your face in particular.

Depending on whether your face is oval, square, round or heart-shaped, you won't choose the same earrings, shapes, colors, lengths..

For example, large or imposing earrings are generally avoided with a round face, to avoid adding bulk or accentuating features.

With a round face, we prefer dangling, slender earrings in rectangular or diamondshapes, to give a long, slender line to your head.

If your face is more angular, square-shaped, with a protruding jaw, you'll opt for rounded earrings with a streamlined design, like half-hoop earrings with rhinestones.

For oval faces, it's easier: you can wear all types of earrings, from the trendy double hoop and pearl earrings to square earrings...

Depending on the style of your earrings, you can orientate your outfit: creoles, for example, are best reserved for everyday looks, for a night out with friends or a date at the restaurant.

On the other hand, for a professional look, we prefer more classic, less blinged-out earrings, such as gold cluster earrings or gold flea earrings. Earrings with graphic shapes are very practical for creating a trendier, edgier look and are more suited to professional outfits.

For fair complexions and red or blond hair, golden or pinkish colors are preferred. The opposite is true for matte and tanned complexions and brown and chestnut hair, with silver colors and blues and greens to bring out your tan.

What is the history of earrings?

Earrings have been around since the earliest traces of mankind. Mixed from the outset, their use became essentially feminine over time, depending on the period and region of the world.

The first traces of jewelry and earrings can be traced back to archeological discoveries that brought to light statues of Persian soldiers wearing them. Pierced ears can also be seen on Tutankhamun's funerary mask, as well as earrings in his sarcophagus. From the outset, therefore, earrings have been both jewelry and a symbol of wealth and distinction.

Earrings were also a kind of amulet, believed to provide health benefits and protection against the evil eye.

Earrings also served as a means of exchange and quick access to savings in case of danger.

The Middle Ages reversed the trend, with women and men preferring headdresses and headgear.

While no one wears earrings for therapeutic purposes any more, earrings continue to be worn to embellish outfits. Texts from the Roman Empire call for moderation in the purchase of earrings and jewelry, to avoid indebtedness.

Even during the First World War, earrings seemed to fall out of fashion due to the prejudice of poverty attached to pierced ears. Jewellers invented screw-on earrings, and later clip-on earrings, to get round this obstacle. Today, this prejudice has completely disappeared, and there are no fewer than 13 different types of ear piercing.

Luxury earrings in gold or silver, or fancy earrings in wood, linen or pearls, are classics to have in a woman's wardrobe. Stock up on accessories, jewelry, bracelets and necklaces for the coming spring.

Bohemian stone jewelry, in keeping with the hippie chic trend, is also a timeless piece that's always good to have with you in your suitcases as the vacations approach.

Be imaginative and creative with your jewelry, and take advantage of the gipsy trend to create a bohemian look with a long cotton skirt with ruffles, a pair of nude sandals with block heels and long, thin gold dangling earrings.
