Its Cher’s birthday, and if there’s a single woman whose style is synonymous with iconic, it’s Cher. At 16, a young girl once known as Cherilyn moved to Los Angeles with stars in her eyes and her heart on her sleeve. She married Salvatore Bono, or ‘Sonny’, and the two entered the glamorous world of pop. During this time, Cher was born.
To celebrate the star’s 73rd birthday, revisiting the magic of her gloriously camp and colourful musical oeuvre should be a necessary part of your day. But for jewellery aficionados, today we’re going to turn back time and look at the highlights of Cher’s eclectic jewellery style. From XXL hoops to head-to-toe diamonds, take a lesson in Cher style and channel your inner icon this season.
Go “classic Cher”
Glitter, feathers, sequins, diamonds, silk, mesh - that’s what I mean by ‘classic Cher’. Going to a festival? A summer ball? An eccentric wedding? Cher’s extra style is perfect for so many occasions. This iconic look was captured in 1974, featuring a barely-there Cher special. From the quintessential 70’s bell sleeves and flares to the crystal and feather adornments, everything about this look screams sass. Channel confidence and extravagance with jewellery that channels classic Cher style. Latelita London’s feather ear cuff is the perfect piece to recreate this iconic look. For something modern and chic go for Lara Heems’ dramatic hoops - all the celebrities are wearing them. Finally, for some extra-large glamour with a hint of opulence, check out the chandelier earrings by ERAYA, because what’s more Cher than diamonds?
Channel some 70s kitsch
Hoop earrings have been around for longer than your probably imagined. An everyday staple in the modern woman’s jewellery box, why not elevate your hoop game with a touch of Cher? Pictured wearing a kitsch pair of white hoop earrings typical to the 70s era, Cher channels a playful and fun approach to fashion. Combine some classic design with a pop of electrifying colour through Joke Quick’s sapphire hoop earrings. No one will miss you in these bold hoops, but who wants to blend into the background? Elena Jewelry Concepts handcraft minimalist jewellery that convey maximum style. Their ribbon hoops will transform your look to encompass some much-needed boldness. If oversized is your style inspiration this season, you need to meet the brand House of Urban. Sometimes one hoop is not enough, so wear three and radiate confidence.
Bring boho back
Layered jewellery is consistently a winning trend and Cher knew how to rock it flawlessly. Pairing a gorgeous turquoise gemstone necklace with a silver chain and stacked rings, Cher shows us how authentic layered jewellery should be worn - with attitude. So wear your jewellery Cher style; layered, lustrous, and endlessly chic. To dress up your casual summer style, invest in Lisa Robin’s turquoise gemstone necklace. The striking gemstones will imbue your look with a pop of colour, allowing you to infuse your look with your own authentic style. Style alongside Jewel Tree London’s chain necklace for a strong layered look, completed with the gorgeous choker wrap necklace by Rosey West. You’ll be starring in your own bohemian rhapsody with these striking pieces.
