Diana Ross provides the best statement earring inspiration as she collects her Presidential Medal of Freedom


“Along with her honey voice, her soulful sensibility, Diana exuded glamour and grace and filled stages that helped to shape the sound of Motown,” said President Obama as he presented Diana Ross with America’s highest civilian honour, the Medal of Freedom, yesterday. “Today, from the hip-hop that samples her to the young singers who’ve been inspired by her to the audiences that still cannot get enough of her, Diana Ross’s influence is inescapable as ever.”

Of course we heartily agree with all of the above, but there’s one other detail from yesterday’s award ceremony which merits stylish consideration: the fact that Diana Ross chose to accept her medal wearing a pair of fabulous dangling earrings which co-ordinated perfectly with her gleaming medal and stood out marvellously next to her that other signature of hers, the full-bodied mane of hair.

Ross’s choice of earrings was of course a glamorous nod to a styling trick which she’s employed constantly since she burst onto the scene with The Supremes, bringing extra glitz to her stage and red carpet looks with a magpie-friendly array of statement ear attire. But it also serves as brilliant inspiration for one next Spring/Summer’s easiest-to-adopt trends; the showstopper earring. Seen everywhere from Delpozo (extravagant glass chunks) , Proenza Schouler (sculptural shapes), Balenciaga (crystal studded) and Celine (delicately graphic), it’s guaranteed to be on your jewellery radar early next year, but also happens to be an ideal way to transform yourself  for a Christmas drinks ‘do in five minutes flat. It’s no wonder that sales of ‘statement earrings’ are already up by 73% on last year according to luxury e-tailer Avenue 32, which cites Delfina Delettrez’s enamel eye mono-earring as their most popular and, in anticipation of the stellar rise the earring is set to enjoy in the coming months, freshly-founded Instagram account @earafterear now posts a constant stream of aural decoration ideas.

Let’s turn to Ross’s exceptional earring archive for a few ideas…

The sculptural  statements

Just because you’re keeping the look simple (yes, head-to-toe red jersey is fairly pared-back in the Diana Ross scheme of things) doesn’t mean you can’t add an earring which goes with the mood; these delicate spirals are simple but interesting.

The Chandeliers 

This look is so 2016- just the right amount of bling set against a sumptuous velvet dress. Take note of Ross’s combed back hair which offers the ideal frame for a pair of dazzlers which Pat Butcher would be proud of.

The Jazzy Discs 

As this throwback shot of Ross proves, your oversized earrings need not always be long-length lobe stretchers, these glimmering discs offer just as much impact.

The Jangly Shoulder Grazers

If you have short hair, play with proportion by choosing earrings that reach to your shoulders and beyond.

The Hoops with a Twist 

Every woman needs a perfect pair of hoops in her jewellery arsenal, but it’s also worth using the new trend for major  earrings as an excuse to broaden your hoop horizons with something a little more artful.
