It’s the sparkle that counts! Even a hardcore diamond addict like myself was (almost) fooled by these glistening discs. So it’s no shock Lulu Frost is familiar with real and fake diamonds and everything in between. Designer Lisa Salzer, who founded the brand in New York City in 2004, has jewelry in her blood – her maternal family, which goes by the name Frost, has been in the estate jewelry business for decades. Now Lisa is all about blending modern, vintage, and antique elements for her own take on costume jewels.
And she knows her stuff. The rustic gold-plated bar makes for a flawless contrast to a silver-plated orb of clustered pave crystals. With a 2″ drop, these are plentiful without being overbearing, so they leave room to layer on the other strands, beads, and baubles, whether you mix them up with top-of-the-line stones or jewels pulled from your own family’s collection.
However you wear these earrings, the touch of bedazzlement is just what you need as you approach the holidays. On Net-a-Porter for $140.
Pair with: Highlight that sliver of golden metal with Gucci‘s Bette strappy, sling-back sandals. Shimmering bronze will make your feet radiate heat, and put some flash in your party-time step. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $725.
