Linear drop earrings are trending again and not a moment too soon—they’re perfect for summer. They have the sort of free-spirited vibe that calls to us this time of year, adding va-va-voom to the season’s attire without weighing us down. Varying in length depending on style, some hit the jawline while others go all the way down to brush the shoulder. They swing happily with a nod of the head and are an exquisite accompaniment to carefree topknot. They aid in my perfect kind of dress-up: one that takes minimal time and effort.
The Halo earrings, from Evangeline London, keep the effortless, swingy style looking sweet, with an upscale vibe. Honeycomb shapes set with sparkling diamonds line up in descending order from top to bottom, giving way to—my favorite part of the pair—a dangling baguette diamond at the anchor. Its diminutive presence adds a playful—but no less luxurious—touch to this design and, while a small detail, is truly what makes these earrings stand apart.
The earrings are from Evangeline’s Bee Loved collection, which pays tribute to the British honeybee, a revered member of the U.K.’s wildlife. From the brand: “The honeybee is integral to our environment and ultimately human survival. Our collection is an homage to the small but mighty bee, which is both beautiful and strong. Its honeycomb is perfectly constructed but simple in its design.”
Honoring—and really, doing your part to saving, if you can—the honeybee is an important cause, more than ever. And I know that. When I see a honeybee outdoors, I often tell it, “You’re doing a great job, I value you.” I’m not sure it can hear me, though, as I’m often running in the opposite direction.
I admire bees just as much as they terrify me, so a collection such as this is a good one for anyone who shares my fear. The mighty bee is honored in the most dazzling way—and hopefully we can see these designs as a reminder of its importance—no beekeeper suit necessary.
Evangeline is a London-based jeweler specializing in fine jewelry and custom-made pieces. The brand exhibited at Luxury by JCK for the first time this year.
