Dainty gold jewelry has been in for a minute now, and it’s likely not going anywhere—people are even getting lightweight chains fused on for permanent looks. But we’re seeing a lot more rhinestones and diamonds lately.
The turn toward sparkle and glitter may have something to do with trends from the Y2K era coming back around: crochet, baguette bags and, especially, rhinestone earrings. And we aren’t talking about simple studs. Rhinestone earrings are here in a variety of forms.
We like bling that dangles and drops, like these 18K White Gold Celestial Rae Diamond Earrings ($5,700) and 18K White Gold 57 Collection Diamond Matchstick Earrings ($15,080) from Tivol.
