In an age where social media is life and taking selfies is the order of the day, the rules are totally different compared to back then in the 80s. In the past, people really dressed up for a photo shoot. Costume jewelry was used in excess, make-up was applied generously and bouffant hair ruled. Today, we see distressed denim, little or no make-up, unexaggerated and relaxed hairdos and a single statement jewelry.
Often times selfies involve taking pictures of the face and featuring everything from the hair down to the nose ring or lovely pair of earrings. Earrings are one of the most important assets when it comes to selfies because they make up the face. The styles have become brighter, flashier and more colorful. There is no doubt then why gemstone earrings are so popular for selfies. All you need to do is go to Instagram and check out the selfie images of jewelry lovers to see what I mean.
