Sometimes the story is all about the stone. Sometimes it’s all about the designer. But this time we bring you a fusion of Edwardian era motifs interpreted for the very modern lady. The result is a completely new shape of jewelry that is at once appealing but with a surprising twist. The ever luminous Christina Hendricks captured here at a Hollywood event is always at home in her own skin and her femininity. You see her here wearing a newer earring shape that we imagine would look superb on any woman, whether one has long flowing tresses or a pretty short bob. The earrings we love caress the contours of the ear, creating a canvas of bling to cast dazzling light reflections back onto the lovely lady’s face. The detail worked into this design keep the overall look light and delicate. But it makes a big impression. We hope other creative designers will pick up this exciting trend. This modern take on the demi-lune earring shape is by no means new. Ladies from early 20th century and into the 1940s wore a version of this halfcircle shape with both earrings and sweater clips. The 21st century interpretation of that classic form has more fluid lines, is thoroughly sophisticated and pairs perfectly to modern fashion. Ms. Hendricks Sutra earrings are set with champagne diamonds. We don’t know anyone who doesn’t look stunning in champagne diamonds. Their warmth and depth of color complements every skin tone. We often reach for jewelry shapes we’re most familiar with. This out-of-the-ordinary earring stunner is one we all should try – soon. diana-ear-rings-lin-dec-16
