I've never been a big fan of big earrings -- I usually stick to little diamond studs or some tiny sea horses I picked up last summer at American Apparel. But these caught my eye as soon as I saw them.
I was immediately reminded of Dolce & Gabbana's gold-drenched Spring 2014 collection, with all its rich coin motifs paired with sassy silhouettes. I like that they add drama to otherwise ladylike outfits in that sort of old world-y, Italian way. My feelings are best verbalized through an altered Carrie Bradshaw quote: "I like my money right where I can see it... hanging from my ears."
OK, so they aren't the most expensive-looking pieces of jewelry I've ever owned -- but for something super trendy (and super affordable), I can't say I mind. And anyway, I always liked Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Coin drop earrings, $14.82, available at ASOS.
