Have you started dining out again? As our area continues to “phase” through things, we’re seeing more and more couples restart their weekly date night rituals by dining out. To me, nothing says “date night” quite like a gorgeous pair of earrings, so I assembled my top picks for your next special reservation for two…
These are my new favorite earrings in our shop. They’re gorgeously textured and lux in feel, but they are lightweight enough to carry you through dessert without giving you that “I haven’t worn earrings in four months” headache.
14k gold, $960
For something more colorful, opt for these beautiful works of art. Featuring diamond, peridot, Swiss blue topaz, prasiolite, and amethyst, these stunners will complete a fancier look with ease or mix things up and wear them with a white button down and jeans. They’re incredibly versatile and are sure add a little pep in your step for your date.
14k gold featuring multi-colored semi-precious gemstones, $2160
If you’re a neutral lover (like me), consider these pretty shell drops. I love the abstract shapes of the segments and the luminosity on these render them anything but basic. Perfect for summer evenings by the beach.
14k gold, $760
I love these super chic diamond drops for their lightweight feel and perfectly delicate diamond accents on the chains. Pair these understated sparklers with a little black dress to add an alluring glimmer to your look.
14k white gold, $1080
For a diamond dangle with a bigger impact, consider these Shooting Star drops. Set with lab-created diamonds, you’ll get an amazingly impactful look without (quite) the impact on your bank account. We love them for their clean, contemporary feel and stunning superstar effect.
14k yellow gold, $2975
