And here, I’m at it once again, although technically I’ve been on the hunt for exceptional gold earrings all year long. The idea was that by December, I’d be able to narrow my favorites down to a solid quintet—you know, in lieu of the “five gold rings” one’s true love is supposed to give them on the fifth day of Christmas? (Side note: Kiri Te Kanawa’s cover of “The 12 Days of Christmas” was the version played in my house growing up but there are others if you’re not getting the reference.)
A great pair of gold earrings makes what you’re wearing look a million times more festive. Which means any of my picks in this edit can bring instant glamour to your holiday look this weekend (so, so pretty with a red, green, or even black dress or cashmere sweater) and beyond.
They’re like the jewelry equivalent of getting a few face-framing highlights at the salon. Personally, I’d opt for both—how else would I get through winter?
