A perfect pair of earrings transforms a set of clothes into an outfit. Suspended in their lofty position, earrings have a prominent sway over your look, setting a tone for all that follows. No other piece of jewelry has the power necessary to highlight a hairstyle or cut, to frame the face, or compliment your complexion. Only earrings can make a statement that defines your style from the top down, and only they have the versatility of design that lets you tune this high-profile piece of jewelry to exactly your preference. A pair of stud earrings might be striking, or demur. It all depends on the gemstone, precious metal and setting. A set of dangle earrings might reign over your look, commanding a shower of sumptuous hues, or it could suggest a mere delicate drop of light. The designer’s choices dictate the ultimate effect. Hoop earrings can offer the slightest hint of glimmer in a classic circular shape, or they may stretch to such great dimensions that they’ll graze your shoulders. Either way, they offer a timeless accent for your look.
