20 Sustainable Statement Earrings

I love a good statement earring.  It’s a versatile accessory that can be worn day or night, with a cocktail dress or a simple t-shirt and messy bun.  There is no shortage in variety when it comes to statement earrings, which can be colorful, geometric, shiny, with tassels or fringe.  It seems that costume jewelry has made a serious comeback.

One complaint people have about fair trade or ethically made items is that they don’t look “contemporary” enough.  So I scoured the web for modern sustainable statement earrings by my favorite brands.  Here are 20 of my favorites.  Each pair is ethically made and/or supports a great cause.  All earrings are as unique as the artisans who designed them and will surely make a statement.
