English term or phrase: drop earrings
I translated "drop earrings" into "hängende Ohrringe", but I'm not sure whether it should be "Ohrringe in Tropfenform", "Ohrhänger" (which I think is a rather colloquial expression) or anything else. I appreciate any comments.

Ohrhänger
Explanation:
I wouldn't say that Ohrhänger is a rather colloquial expression, although Ohrringe and Ohrhänger is often used interchangeably by the vendors.

For an example of Ohrhänger, incl. a picture, cf.
Ohrhänger schwarz-silber
handbemalter Ohrschmuck
federeichte [sic!] Ohrhänger mit einer handbemalten Holzperle
www.silk-silver-stones.de/c117.html

(again with pictures) which has various earring categories.

Tropfenförmige Ohrringe


Explanation:
