One of the surest ways to dress up a room in your home is to add an elegant chandelier. And one of the season's most versatile accessories, the chandelier earring, can be counted on to deliver a dose of style to any outfit.
Once a staple of cocktail wear, the chandelier earring may be found in shoulder-grazing lengths, delicate drop styles, with crystal accents or in sleek metals.
It's just the right accessory to add a little interest to winter turtlenecks and V-neck sweaters worn with jeans — as well as spring and summer tunics and dresses. To show them off even more, pull your hair up in a loose bun or a simple ponytail.
Kate Spade currently offers several styles of delicate chandeliers including classic looks featuring clear and colored faceted glass.
