Dangling earrings, like the popular and trendy chandelier earrings, look lovely on women with longer necks. Not giraffe-like necks, but long elegant necks that deserve elegant earrings to show them off. For those lucky few, many wonderful choices are available to fit just about any budget, from delicate peridot dangles to white gold with amethyst and diamond drop earrings.
Diah Ayu, a talented Balinese jewelry designer, creates beautiful and elegant earrings inspired by her awe-inspiring surroundings. She says, "The unique culture, charm, and beauty of this paradise island have become my never-ending source of inspiration. My main jewelry themes are flowers, animals, stars, the moon, sun, cultural symbols and other ornamentations."
One of her designs is showcased in the pearl and garnet chandelier earrings called "Rain in Paradise."
Working in sterling silver, she has crafted these delicate earrings, adding beautiful garnet, citrine and pearls in white, gray and blue.
Jewelry designer Sasina brings her ultra feminine creations to the world as a National Geographic Novica-featured artisan.
Designing and producing her beautiful baubles from a garden inspired home north of Thailand, Sasina has been creating jewelry since she was a young girl.
She says,“I love jewelry so much that the need to adorn my body with it is mandatory. My favorite is the earring, because it is little yet can subtly decorate the wearer.”
Jewelry is “mandatory”? We can go for that. Sasina’s “Golden Ruffles” Tiger’s Eye Chandelier Earrings sure caught our eye. Tiger’s eye stones set amongst silver ruffles and complimented by sparkling green peridots make these dangling beauties not only flirty, but possibly good luck charms as well.
Sasina explains, “I believe in the power of stones. Before leaving home, I wear an accessory – preferably earrings – that features at least one type of lucky stone, not only for luck, but also because I believe I will then meet only good things.”
Chandelier earrings made a big fashion redux in 2009 and are still a top pick for fashion conscience fems.
