As you ready your wardrobe for fall, there’s no mistaking that statement earrings are a very big thing this season. If you’re not totally confident rocking the popular geometrical baubles and can’t bring yourself to go for oversized hoops, the linear drop earring is a trusty choice.
The 411 on Linear Drop Earrings
There are all sorts of drop earrings you can choose from, from quintessential tassels to glitzy chandelier ones. Linear drop earrings are the accessory equivalent to the perfect white T-shirt, but without being basic. Also called “threaders,” these baubles are mostly what they sound like: A thread (sometimes a compilation of gemstones, sometimes a literal thread of gold or silver) drops from the stud’s post and hangs beautifully below the ear lobe.
Perfect for everyday wear, linear drop earrings are a great go-to accessory for a smart-casual look. Those who love to feel comfortable while also wearing something with a contemporary edge will love the versatility that comes with these earrings.

Linear drop earrings are one of the most functional styles because they can be comprised of many varying elements (diamonds, gemstones, gold, silver), making them a particularly fun style to design and wear. They also help elongate features, so women with round faces generally find them especially complementary. Simon G. has several colorful options that really play up the hi-lo vibe of the style. A pair from the Nature’s Prime collection boasts sapphires and diamonds and bridges natural touchstones with vibrant color and gold accents.
Doves by Doron Paloma has some legitimately exquisite examples of linear drop earrings for occasions when you want to add an extra dash of glamour. In particular, the Gatsby collection features some seriously to-die-for examples of the trend. Think rich onyx with brilliant diamonds crafted into eye-catching shapes like sharp rectangles and triangles, smooth teardrops and ovals. One look at the collection and you can see the architectural influences that inform the aesthetic.
For more of a special occasion pair of linear drop earrings (though they could work well with a sharp blazer or simple black turtleneck), Oscar Heyman’s creations are simply stunning. White gold, vibrant emeralds, and brilliant diamonds -- this is a pair of headturners dripping with refined elegance.
Another option that toes the line between casual and high-fashion is Tacori’s Island Rains collection, which offers a lovely balance between the two. The line features lots of sterling silver and mixes in brilliant turquoise, soft topaz, and quartz in several styles of linear drop earrings that would pair beautifully with other earthy hues.
