I prefer gold jewellery in summer
I wear both gold and silver toned accessories, depending on the season and the colours I’m wearing. In winter (or when wearing pink or fuchsia) I tend to prefer silver, whereas summer (or wearing blue) makes me turn me into a magpie craving anything golden.
And that’s why I couldn’t resist getting this pair of statement earrings (Yes, you’ve already seen them with the purple maxi)…
I found these earrings in a very avant-garde design shop in Berlin. You know, the type of shop I normally avoid because everything there is so conceptual and architectural and not very practical…
Anyway, I don’t often wear earrings because I have quite a bad metal allergy. This means that I can only ever wear earrings made of gold or white gold. And that’s what you usually see me wearing: white gold hoops with pearl drops.
So, to get around the metal allergy problem, I simply hang the earrings from the white gold hoops I usually wear. Does it bother me that the hoops are white gold and the earrings are rose gold? Maybe a bit, but since I only have this one pair of hoops I can wear… Besides, who can see the white gold hoops under my hair? Let’s be honest, to compete for attention with hair like mine the earrings should be the size of Christmas tree ornaments… Which is another reason I like these earrings: they’re leather, so they weigh absolutely nothing.

What about you, do you wear statement earrings?
