Updated on March 31, 2013

Bohemian style earrings are a great way to add an earthy chic hippie twist to any outfit. Available in a wide range of styles, bohemian earrings typically feature beads, filigree patterning, feathers and natural gem stones. Generally bohemian style jewelry is quite versatile and can be teamed with a number of different styled outfits, whether it's a hippie chic look your going for or not. There are large boho earrings,small ones, dangle ones, studs, beads, brass, silver & gold tones, and much much more.

Filigree Bohemian Earrings

Filigree bohemian earrings are a popular style, adding a touch of understated elegance and glamour to a basic outfit. Filigree earrings feature lace like metal detailing, often in the form of flowers, vines and other plants. This style of earring looks great and very fitting with a plain or patterned maxi dress, jeans and a t-shirt, or a cute little summer dress.

Filigree is a delicate design that packs a punch of style. Filigree earrings should be the star of your outfit, and should be worn without other jewelry accompanying.

Beaded Bohemian Earrings

Beads are probably the most common feature of bohemian style jewelry, and may be any color or size. Glass seed beads are commonly used in bohemian jewelry, a fine feature they are as they are light to wear, decorative, and cheap to produce, making for some very reasonably priced and stylish jewelry.

Natural gemstones are sometimes used as beads in bohemian jewelry, improving the quality of an item, but tend to be heavier than typical glass or plastic beads. Glass seed beads are available in abundance at any good craft store, and you can easily make your own earrings, necklaces & bracelets for next to nothing using seed beads.

Feather Bohemian Earrings

Feathers are a great addition to bohemian style jewelry giving it an earthy element. Feathers used in bohemian style jewelry are often dyed, and are available in every color imaginable. Feathers are great to wear if you like jewelry that is light, comfortable & easy to wear. Feathered earrings can look fantastic with a maxi dress, or jeans & singlet.

Great care needs to be taken when storing feathered jewelry as it is fragile & easily damaged. Never throw feathered jewelry in a box along with the rest of your jewelry. Hang feathered earrings on a jewelry holder where they can't become entangled with your other pieces.

Gold Tone Bohemian Earrings

If your a girl who loves gold, you can easily find some beautiful gold tone bohemian style earrings, although they do tend to be more common in silver tone. Gold tones are elegant and glamorous within themselves and go well with any color.

Gold tone is a great option if you're not sure about what suits you, as gold suits absolutely everyone. Gold tones also go with any and every color. Every woman should have at least one pair of trusty gold tone earrings to turn to when deciding on the best piece of jewelry to add an outfit.

Flower Bohemian Earrings

As flowers are a thing of beauty and nature, they're a popular theme for bohemian style jewelry. Whether the flower design replicates a type of existing flower or the design is abstract/ conceptual, flowers are a perfect theme for bohemian style earrings.

As flowers have long been celebrated as things of beauty, there are many designs when it comes to floral themed jewelry. Whatever you favourite flower may be, there is bound to be a design out there somewhere, featuring your favorite flower.
