If you’re like me, Christmas fills your head with so many iconic images, from Christmas trees, ornaments and angels, to snowmen, Poinsettias, and ribbons and bows. So when I started to look for the very best Christmas earrings, I thought it would be fun to find the very best of those bright and sparkly mental pictures, and package them like a present, just to make your Christmas shopping simple and fun.
Rather than featuring lots of the kitschy stuff that’s out there, I’ve tried to find really beautiful Christmas jewelry that you, or the woman on your gift list, will want to keep wearing, year after year. These Christmas earrings, while not exactly investment pieces, each have something that makes them extra special. In addition to my featured picks, I’ve also included three or four other awesome options in each design category to give you the widest variety of choices. Many are super affordable and will make terrific Secret Santa gifts, or small presents for your girlfriends, daughters or moms.
While I’ve devoted an entire post specifically to Christmas Tree Earrings, there are still a few listed at the end of this article…because I just had to, and didn’t want you to miss out in case you hadn’t seen that post (which you should totally check out.) If you’re ready to ring in the holiday season with seriously fabulous Christmas earrings, here are our picks for the Top 10 Best Christmas Earrings 2018.
