Asymmetry. Earrings different in shape - one of the most noticeable trends in 2017, although sometimes the difference between the right and left earrings is barely perceptible, as in the jewels of Chopard and Autore. A more noticeable solution is the combination of one shape and an ascending pattern in different earrings, for example, laconic cloves and cuffs or a long pendant.

Large unpaired earrings amaze with a variety of shapes - designers combine rings and geometric figures, spirals, clusters, laconic "drops". The final trend chord is the solo earrings, put on one ear and falling on the shoulder. In a more refined version, a small earring is complemented by a miniature companion, made in the same color scheme.

Designers offer to wear rings all at once, putting on one finger or on different.

Diamonds. The original use of the "king of the gems" was offered by Ana Katarina. She placed the classic round cut stones "on the contrary", that is, the culette (point) outwards. It emphasized the exquisite and yet slightly brutal design of the Sumerian Spike Diamond Twist earrings.
