My taste in jewelry has definitely changed over the years – while I still love a good statement piece every now & then, I’ve been favoring more minimalist styles lately. When I saw these earrings in last month’s Nordstrom catalog, I instantly fell in love with them. They are such a unique modern design that looks both sophisticated & appropriate for everyday wear. I’m partial to this hematite pair, but they also come in gold & silver here. They are more than I would normally spend on costume jewelry, so I’ve added them to my birthday wish list & am hoping my husband will take the hint!
