Statement earrings needed for secret wedding next week

(25 Posts)

I'm going to a secret wedding next week (myself and DH are the only two guests!). I have a very sculptural black dress to wear. Just tried it on for the first time, and I don't think a necklace will work so am looking for some big statement earrings - must be in silver tones or black (no gold). Budget up to £100. Any ideas? I am wearing a sort of metallic tweed long coat over the top with some (subtle) pink and silver tones.

Just looked at Stella and Dot, Butler and Wilson, My Wardrobe, The out net and net-a-porter. Doesn't have to BE expensive, but would like them to look expensive IYSWIM.

Anything you like by this designer?

Or - (in the 10mm)

TheBeanAndTheBee Wed 19-Feb-14 20:39:41

Thanks PearlyGrey. Was thinking quite big and chandelier like. Good idea to look at Swarovski though. These maybe??

TheBeanAndTheBee Wed 19-Feb-14 20:48:27

Any other thoughts appreciated!

This is my friends jewellery company. It's very delicate, clean cut jewellery. It's beautifully made and I've got a few pieces now. In fact I wore the petal ones on my wedding day.

TheBeanAndTheBee Wed 19-Feb-14 21:01:52

Thanks SunnyL - her stuff is quite delicate though, I'm after something big and statement-y!

PearlyGrey Wed 19-Feb-14 21:03:54

I always think swaroski stuff looks awful on the website but much nicer in real life!
The one you've found is nice, I also liked these - (LOVE these)

TheBeanAndTheBee Wed 19-Feb-14 21:40:30

Nice choices PearlyGrey thank you! And yes agree it looks much better in real life, might have to go and face westfield on friday...

Thanks all. Tethers - those are quite amazing but not sure they work with the outfit. Hmmm Swarovski ones are coming out on top at the mo, although not convinced I would ever wear them again...

TheBeanAndTheBee Wed 19-Feb-14 22:25:08

Wondering if there is anything big out there that isn't quite so glitzy...

MsAspreyDiamonds Wed 19-Feb-14 22:29:12

Try this asian bridal & occasion jewellery company. They are quite reasonably priced & have a shop in London.

Pipachi Wed 19-Feb-14 22:29:34

Parfois Jewellery normally have an interesting quality price relation:

I spent a lot of time lusting after the statement earrings from glitzy secrets when planning my own wedding

PearlyGrey Wed 19-Feb-14 23:16:36

Any of these better for everyday wear?
Pearl/rolled silver
Silver Moonstone Chandelier
Black crystals - maybe too glitzy too?
Silver branch
Woven Silver

Mango do great statement earrings, as does Lulu Frost (although hers are more expensive). J Crew and Anton Heunis, but it depends on the style you like, as well as your budget.

bunnymother Thu 20-Feb-14 07:21:44

These J Crew ones are quite Deco-esque and are £98:

PearlyGrey Thu 20-Feb-14 08:37:16

Lots of Art Deco style here - if you like that look? I like these, could definitely be worn day to day, or maybe more sparkly?

JoyceDivision Thu 20-Feb-14 20:28:47

tried tattydevine?

TheBeanAndTheBee Thu 20-Feb-14 22:39:29

Bunny mother if those j crew ones had a black rather than a brown they would be perfect...grrr... Tatty Devine, just looked thanks for the steer, but, a bit low key for the outfit/occasion. Still looking....

It seems that silver is out of fashion at the minute! At least for big statement earrings anyway.
How about...
Black Chandeliers
Silver/Crystal 1
Silver Crystal 2
Silver Crystal 3
Slightly over budget - silver/grey/pink
British Museum
British Museum 2
