Begging pardon in advance for the cliché, but this jewellery trend comes with a heavenly (or at least A-list celebrity) blessing. Oversized gold cross earrings are now a street style staple among major celebrities – see Romee Strijd and Kourtney Kardashian – and a regular fixture at music festivals and cocktail events.
No longer worn by just those with religious ties, the giant cross bling now comes in a range of iterations. From giant staple pieces to more elegant, almost minimalist styles, there’s now something to suit everyone in the big earring stakes.
It’s a master of versatility too. Rock with a strapless cocktail dress for maximum evening impact, or jeans with a white tee and slides for a dressed-down street-chic vibe.
Festivals have quickly become a common stomping ground for the trend too. With the second weekend of Coachella 2018 and Splendour In The Grass both just around the corner, expect to see this trend explode even further on your Instagram feed.
