Selecting each and every detail of a special occasion look—whether you’re saying “I do”, part of the wedding party, or a guest in attendance—is a big part of the getting ready process. While you might think the dress (or suit) you wear is the biggest consideration, it’s usually the accessories that will really set your look apart. And one item we can’t help but feel enamored by year after year is the glitzy, glamorous chandelier earring.
What are Chandelier Earrings?
Chandelier earrings are a type of long, dangling earring that typically hands from a stud or hook.
Think long, sparkly dangles, and eye-catching details—this accessory style mirrors the silhouette of a ceiling chandelier (hence the name!). That said, there are chandelier earrings for almost every bridal style from vintage to beachy to modern to classic. The best part is, chandelier earrings can easily be worn again after the big day, which means you’ll get plenty of use out of them after your “I dos.”
