Earrings have always been a tricky thing with me. I love them on others but I have always been drawn to earrings that tend to be heavy due to a lot of the stones that may be in the earrings. After a few hours, the earrings end up going in a little pouch in my bag. Because of this, I tend to go without them. Recently I was introduced to these diamond hoops from Helzberg Diamonds. As soon as I saw them, I thought they were very delicate and perfect to pair with upcoming holiday parties; however, you know my belief in Casual Glam – bringing special items to the everyday, is essential to me. My first opportunity to wear these earrings came about during a recent brunch with a friend. These earrings were worn with my jeans, tank top and a wrap (with my knitted boots). I loved how people looked up to see these earrings. Not only did I feel a bit like the old world glamour, but I loved the idea of wearing earrings that were completely weightless and in white gold. From this night on, I knew that I wanted to wear them with more pieces that were completely casual to add in the pop of shimmer. Other nights, due to various holiday functions, I wore them with cocktail dresses and multi-layer necklaces. It became clear that these earrings were a new go to item for me. They stepped up my whole look without being too heavy and everyone wanted to know where I received them. In my opinion, these earrings are going to be a major look for 2008. In one way or another, we look for a way to step up our look just to keep it fresh and I must say that with comments and stares like this, it's nice to know you can have a bit of luxury (did I mention the 84 single cut ) and still be very you. Take some time to check out more pieces at Helzberg Diamonds. These earrings alone have made me want to increase my entry into the world of diamonds.
