Tassel earrings

Statement earrings are having a moment both on and off the runway, but their shoulder-grazing tasseled counterparts are the current look du jour. From Cleopatra to the ultra chic Lee Radziwill and from beads to fringe, the tassel has been an accessory staple throughout the years, but recently reemerged as the earring of the season. Case in point: Lizzie Fortunato’s crater earrings have regularly sold out since their launch, Oscar de la Renta’s beaded versions remain a core staple in the brand’s accessory division, and new versions are popping up everywhere. New label Hart’s fun, accessibly-priced options are perfect for a coffee break splurge (and take a look at her bespoke, handcrafted jackets while you're there), and Australian-based designer Christie Nicolaides’ beaded options were inspired by her Greek heritage. The only hard decision—which pair to buy?
