The Twelve Days of Christmas: Earrings series, day 5

Unlike yesterday’s entry, there’s nothing understated or subtle about this pair! I believe the technical term for this style is ‘chandelier’. They drip with bright, vivid colour and even manage to incorporate a cheeky bit of glinting crystal. I thought they would add some glitz and glamour to a winter Monday. I have an appointment with my physio, a coffee date with a friend and our toddlers, followed by Christmas shopping in Cambridge and I think these will work just fine for all of those. I might have to take them out for my Zumba class in the evening though, as if they’re hectically swinging around I figure they will be painful in my ears. Coronation Street viewers might see them as coming from the Bet Lynch school of jewellery but I like to think they are more a la mode than brash. I ordered them online after seeing them in my style bible, Stylist magazine. I think I’m going to have fun wearing them today: let’s see if anyone notices them!

For me, these are a small dash of bling, in a (hopefully!) tasteful way. They are rose gold spheres speckled with tiny crystals. I bought them from the Swaroski store just off Union Square in San Francisco. It took me several visits to overcome my hesitation and I’m pleased I did, because these now have a ‘wear anywhere’ ease in my earring wardrobe. I put them in this morning before going out for a run and they’re equally at home bringing some understated sparkle to a work outfit. Love them!
