It’s an all-too familiar scenario: You see a pair of pretty gemstone earrings, you love the pretty gemstone earrings, you buy the pretty gemstone earrings… then, um, you keep the pretty gemstone earrings ‘for good’ and wear plain studs on the daily. Well, we’re here to fight for all the lovely statement jewels being held hostage in jewellery boxes everywhere.

Ladies, 2017 is going to be all about bold accessories – so, for the love of crystal hardware, don’t wait until you get tickets to the opera before you bust out those ear chandeliers. These a-little-bit-fancy earrings are perfect for pairing with jeans and a tee or your nine-to-five style. Simply throw your hair up in a topknot and let ’em shine.
