It was hard to get too excited about the spring 2021 collections in the fall. (For me, it was actually a bit hard to believe that spring would even arrive!). But the closer the calendar creeps to that magical day when we can spend time outdoors again, the more enthused I become for breezy spring clothes, colorful handbags and (of course!) lots of beautiful new jewelry.
Back in the fall, one of the most remarked upon trends was the sudden appearance of shoulder duster earrings. According to Harper’s Bazaar, “Saint Laurent, for example, displayed mod-inspired earrings made of resin and metal with flower-shaped posts. Simone Rocha offered ornate chandeliers made of white beads that resembled pearls. And Paco Rabanne reimagined its signature chain-mail dresses into shoulder-grazing earrings.”
Fashion tastemakers consider these statement pieces appropriate for everything from black tie to office wear. However, I work in a conservative field and oversized chandeliers might be frowned upon. So, I’ve found a way to get the feeling of vibrant, colorful chandelier earrings, yet still remain office-appropriate.
The Priya earrings from Sitara Jewelry, pictured, combine the best of both worlds! While not actually shoulder dusters, the dangly French wire design has a distinctly glam look and the earrings measure a full 2 inches long.
And, the “gems” are simply gorgeous! The opulence of these pear-shaped, hydro glass earrings is a result of expert faceting, designed to mimic the brilliance of gemstones (but at a fraction of the price).
These handmade stunners are pictured in dark blue with a gold-plated brass setting, but this style is also available in a perfect-for-spring aqua. (The handcrafted touch of the artisan creates small variations in color, size, and design. Slight differences should be expected.) Retail: $34
In addition to these striking earrings, Sitara Jewelry offers a huge line of beautiful jewelry, from sterling silver and gold overlay rings, bracelets and necklaces, to a plethora of additional earrings in all shapes, styles and sizes.
All of the products at Sitara Jewelry are crafted in keeping with centuries-old techniques by talented designers, whose exotic inspirations and traditional craftsmanship are simply unparalleled. The company contracts with Indian artisans who are paid fairly for their remarkable designs. And, not only are they fairly compensated, this arrangement allows the artists to keep traditional craftsmanship alive, while working from their own villages.
Plus, a portion of every sale goes to the Helping Children Succeed Foundation! This is a 501 c(3) organization that provides essential funding for a children’s village school in India.
To see the incredible line, which starts at just $14, visit Sitara Jewelry.
