I’m off to an early start on our Jewelry Gift Guide for the holidays, and the first idea on my list is a pair of dazzling starburst or snowflake earrings. Celestial-themed earrings are particularly popular this year, including starbursts, crescent moons, constellations, and snowflakes (like stars, no two are exactly alike).
Here are several examples of heavenly earrings for the holidays and beyond — from a very affordable pair of crystal stars by fashion designer Betsey Johnson, to limited-edition Snowflake Diamonds Earrings by the extraordinary fine jewelry artist Alexandra Mor.
Dancing with the Stars. Betsey Johnson has been a superstar of outrageous fashion since the 1960s. These Silver-Tone Glass Crystal Star Drop Earrings are ladylike and very now.
Only $35 at Macy’s.
Houston, We’ve Got a Problem. Aurélie Bidermann’s gold satellite earrings have me over the moon. How can I afford a pair for my sister…and a pair for myself?
