Looking for a way to incorporate the glitz and glamour of the red carpet to your day-to-day style? Try a pair of drop earrings! Dangling designs were seen on many ears at last night’s Oscars: stars including Jessica Biel, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Cate Blanchett all sported eye-catching earrings that complemented their head-turning gowns.
However, formal gowns are far from the only attire that can be gorgeously accented by a pair of drop earrings! From delicate pearl designs to bold bejeweled numbers, there are styles that can complement a wide range of weekday or weekend looks. These pairs allow you to add a touch of glamour to any day, and can make an outfit seem polished in a matter of seconds.
Several pairs of colored gemstone earrings showed up at the Oscars, and these pops of color are excellent ways to add personality to your look this spring. Pairs like the Amethyst Drop Earrings in Sterling Silver can serve as elegant focal points for many of the season’s styles, dressing up jeans and a T-shirt or complementing your Sunday best. Two faceted amethysts—a 9mm round stone and an 19.mm-high oval-shaped stone—dangle from each of these earrings, giving them ample violet sparkle. At over two inches from top to bottom, they’re a bold yet classy way to wear the color of the year: radiant orchid!
