I get so excited the second the weather turns springy and a woman’s fancy turns to colorful accessories. (Just me?) Yeah, emerald green is hot. But who says you have to stick with Pantone’s pick? The great thing is, this season, whatever color looks good on you, you can find something dangly and fun that’s calling your name.
Saffron Amelia Earrings (above) are so bright and happy, but not so blingy that you can’t wear them day-to-night. ($90, Charm + Chain)
The Gold Chrysoprase Drop Clip Earrings are like the crazy ones you wish your Great Aunt had handed you down from the 1960′s. Not cheap but wow, what a statement. ($375, Alexis Bittar)
For an affordable treat that feels of the same era, check out the Pink Vi Drops which are super mod. ($26, Bauble Bar)
I’ve got a thing for hoops-within-hoops right now and these Orange Enamel and Glass Earrings by ABS by Allen Schwartz fit the bill. The pop of orange enamel is a nice touch. ($60 at Saks)
Purple Agate Raindrop Earrings would be awesome on date night instead of defaulting to plain gold–something I tend to do, too. ($98 at Henri Bendel)
Such a great price on these Green Gem Trio Drops which could be an easy go-to daytime pair of earrings to replace a tired pair of hoops or studs.
($26, Bauble Bar)
I became taken with Dara Ettinger jewelry a few years ago and now own several of her awesome rings. Now I’ve got my eye on these Dara Ettinger Double Stone Druzy Earrings which come in a lot of fun shades. ($225 at Dara Ettinger)
Salmon Danielle Earrings are a really nice coral-y shade that will look good on so many skin tones. And the simplicity makes them smart even if you’re just running around town in jeans. But not mom jeans. You don’t do that, of course. ($60, Charm + Chain)
Pink is always in when spring rolls around, and these Zoe B Pink Chalcedony Garnet Drop Earrings give it a nice twist with that little pop of darker fuschia to set them off. ($128 at Max and Chloe)
Turquoise never quite seems to go out of style–it just comes back in different forms. I love the contrast with the gold-toned accents in these Turquoise Dayla Earrings. ($65, Charm + Chain)
Feeling blue? These bright sapphire toned Kate Spade Cabochon Drop Earrings get just a little extra shine from the CZ studs under the first stone. Great with denim, right? And awesome price. ($40.60 on sale at Saks)
Neon yellow teartrop earrings are right on trend, and these are so simply shaped, they almost become a neutral. They’re lucite, which gives them just a bit of translucency and they look amazing when they hit the light. Oh Alexis Bittar, stop making 400 things I want to own. ($100, Alexis Bittar)
