Earring Trend For Fall: Big & Sparkly

If you've been paying attention to the earrings we're seeing for Fall you've probably noticed the trend is very large and very sparkly.  Lots of rhinestones and pave crystals. These are not for the faint of heart and they look best with short hair or hair pulled back into a ponytail, away from the face.

A few years ago I did a blog post about a vintage costume jewelry collection and the collector had lots of big sparkly earrings.  One of the designers she had a lot of was Thelma Deutsch, who designed from circa 1980 - 1995.  Recently I was searching on Ebay for something else very specific, but came across a gorgeous pair of huge Thelma Deutsch earrings and fell in love.  I made an offer that the seller accepted, plus I had an Ebay coupon (because I'm a regular seller myself) so I ended up paying just $85.   Totally worth it for these three inch long stunners!

So, for a beautiful pair of vintage earrings, I paid less then going to a major department store and buying something similar at the same quality, and I won't be seeing the same earrings on everyone else.  I can't wait to wear them this Fall!  They're going to be stunning for holiday parties, too.
