Buy Before You Die: Robert Goossens Onyx Clip-On Earrings (Yep, Clip-Ons)
August 18, 2008
What: Robert Goossens Onyx Bead Clip-On Earrings, $695
Why: Because clip-ons are back in a big way. I thought I was alone in rocking oversized clip-ons as my latest statement accessory until I noticed the trend popping up elsewhere on fashionable ears. Although mine came from my grandmother's costume jewelry collection, I wouldn't mind owning a pair of true blues, like these Onyx Bead Hoops from Robert Goossens ($695). The sleek yet simple design of these earrings keeps them modern, while the hoop helps disguise the fact that they're clips. Although in my book, I don't know why you'd want to.
If you'd rather take this trend for a test-drive, you can fake it til you make it with some more conservatively priced clip-on options. The Smoky Topaz Gemstones ($225) are simple enough for a daytime ensemble, while the Brown and Ivory Enamel pair ($199.50) would go perfectly with your evening out attire. If you're looking for a more capricious buy, these Dynasty-esque Square Clip-Ons are only $26.
