Hanging tough
Many of the newest shoulder-dusting earrings are direct descendants of the massive crystal-and-diamond doorknockers that Riccardo Tisci designed for Givenchy’s spring 2012 hautecouture collection. When sporting a pair such as the oversized Rita Tesolin danglers shown here, leave your neck, wrist and fingers unadorned and keep hair and makeup as simple as possible. Pewter-and-gunmetal earrings by Rita Tesolin, price on request through Fox-fur stole by Prabal Gurung, $4,999 at Hudson’s Bay Fur Salon (

Rose and shine
This season it’s best to ignore Coco Chanel’s edict to always remove one accessory before leaving the house, particularly if you’ve chosen to decorate yourself with an array of rings and cuffs in rosy-gold hues. The warm metal, after all, adds a hint of softness to even the boldest pairings. Glam & Soul 18-karat goldplated ear cuffs by Thomas Sabo, from $79 through Paris Nouvelle Vague 18-karat pink-gold ring and bracelet set with diamonds, hematites, amethysts, smoky quartz and pink opals, $17,900 and $58,500 at Cartier ( Venetie Bangle, $420 at Swarovski ( Gold La Nuit clutch by Lanvin, $3,190 (U.S.) through Bronze cuff by Pamela Love, $695 at TNT ( Polished-stainless-steel Draw cage cuff by ck Calvin Klein, $150 through Chalk-stripe jacket by Stella McCartney, $2,795 (U.S.) through

Making a point
The ear cuff shown here was Canuck designer Dean Davidson’s first such piece and the effect is otherworldly. With its speared, 22-karat gold ridge, this modern piece combines a Mad Max aesthetic with alien-like beauty. His Sliced Ring is equally distinctive and, like the ear cuff, works best when worn with a minimalist and monochromatic ensemble. Dean Davidson Spike Earcuff, $195, Sliced Ring, $265 through Viscose interlock top by Céline, $1,395 (U.S.) through
