Who says pierced ears should have all the dangly, decorative fun? Erickson Beamon has dreamed up a pair of alluring and softly dramatic clip-on earrings (lucky for me: I can wear them without irritation!). Their beautiful cocktail of light-catching glass beads and Swarovski crystals on intricate 22-karat gold-plated carvings looks family-heirloom expensive, but for just $355 you will fool them all.
What I really appreciate about these lengthy jumbles is the sense of old-world charm they evoke. When it comes to jewels, I love old-fashioned and antique way more than new and modern – an elegant old-world feel is so soothing to the eye and soul. These elaborate 5″-drop danglers will draw the eye – and soul – to your face no matter what you wear, and with low-level flash, they won’t be a challenge to coordinate. On Net-a-Porter for $355.
Pair with: Leave your neck and décolletage free of adornments and let your long costume baubles take center stage. Wear a spaghetti-strapped dress by Lanvin; this draped camisole style is a soft vintage throwback. At Barneys New York for $2,480.
