Gold? It's old news. And silver? It's definitely second place, at least when it comes to spring jewellery.

For though the statement earring trend is showing no sign of slowing down, it's all about bold acrylic styles now.

Inspired by art deco designs, they come in graphic disc and hoop shapes with tortoiseshell and marble prints.

Crafted from acrylic or resin, these dangly, vintage-inspired beauties sit mid-way along the minimal/maximal fashion spectrum. They're big enough to make a statement but the subdued colours and simple shapes mean they're ideal for pairing with spring's abundance of neutral hues.

Equally, if you're loving the bright tailoring trend, a pair of bluey-green marble hoops is the perfect accompaniment.

And did we mention they're extremely affordable too? You can get stylish resin earrings from as little as £7.
