My 10 favorite earrings

Earrings are my favorite piece of jewelry. Not studs though, those little motifs stuck on the ear lobe, but soft and mobile pendants that appear incredibly light. Like Irene Neuwirth’s hoops trimmed with pink opals, Belmacz’s long articulated rods in semi-precious stones, Dorette’s poissardes, or even Gabriella Kiss’s tiny sailing ships that enliven and capture the light’s fleeting glow. Precious suspended pieces only for the most daring.
