Seeing costume jewelry priced at nearly $2,000 definitely makes you take a pause, but let’s examine the facts. First of all, it’s Lanvin, so the cost will be high. Yet with the variety of colored stones mismatched on each side, these are versatile pieces that are bound to match at least one hue in your ensemble. And if not, so much the better! There’s no need to be so matchy-matchy. You can dress them down with jeans and a tee or up with the forest green Lanvin dress (on Farfetch for $1,227.25) I’ve been eyeing. While the ribbons are a little kitschy, that can be fun. Once you’ve tired of them, simply remove the cotton-twill and you’re left with timeless earrings that you can wear for years to come.
