Chandelier earrings, necklaces, rings –The luxury of high jewelry style
Oversized and statement-making jewelry has been all the rage on runways and red carpets of late, but one particular style has proven itself the favorite of celebrities and fashion icons alike. The chandelier earring. Offering instant glamour and feel-good factor, these beloved dangling earrings can instantly level up any outfit.
“Chandelier earrings are the perfect canvas for a jewelry designer like me,” says Giuseppe Picchiotti. “I can literally play with sparkle and light to create masterpieces that move with the body in a sensuous way as the wearer expresses herself. The chemistry of color, motion, and light bring wonder and delight. And because we make them only with the most precious of gemstones with a commitment to precision craftsmanship, I know that joy will live on for many generations. It’s quite thrilling to think about.”
White Out – All Diamond Chandelier Earrings
According to Brides.com, “Chandelier earrings are a type of long, dangling earring that typically hangs 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!).” While they are often worn by brides on the wedding day, the all-white diamond chandelier is also showing up on red carpets more and more. Stars like Salma Hayek and Kerry Washington wore unique white diamond chandelier styles at the SAG Awards earlier this year. Kim Kardashian opted for all white dangles at the Met Gala this spring. Mary J Blige stunned in a white diamond chandelier atop a white beaded fringe gown at the recent launch of her My Life film.
In the fashion world, they say you can never go wrong with black. But these celebrities have proven that with fine jewelry, you can never go wrong with white. All white diamond chandelier earrings add a heightened elegance to the little black dress or to special occasion attire. But they can also be worn with designer denim, or blazers, suits, and many of the new necklines proliferating in the fashion world – one shoulder, open shoulder, ruffles, halterneck, cut-outs, etc. “It’s practically a party on your lobes,” says Who What Wear.
Color is King – Chandelier Earrings with Colorful Precious Gemstones
The chandelier earring is also the perfect canvas for fabulous colored gemstones. Rosario Dawson and Blake Lively both stunned on the Met Gala red carpet in large and luscious drop earrings that featured bold, colorful gems. Giambattista Valli used large colorful drop earrings repeatedly on his Spring/Summer 2022 runway.
Many colored gemstone chandelier earrings tend to feature diamonds, as well, with the interplay of color and translucent clarity catching the light, reminiscent of actual faceted glass light fixtures. PICCHIOTTI is known worldwide for sourcing only the finest quality of gemstones. Their rubies are vivid red, creating a captivating presence on the lobe. Their sapphires are the truest hues of blue with an inviting and fascinating depth of tone. Their emeralds are vibrant greens that enchant and delight.
Each PICCHIOTTI chandelier gemstone earring is a work of art in itself, a tour de force of sparkle. Each is crafted with such precision and thoughtful detail that they hang beautifully on the ear, perfectly balanced to avoid weighing down the lobe or ever feeling uncomfortable.
Chandelier Necklaces and Rings
At PICCHIOTTI, the chandelier style is not reserved for earrings only. The impressive layouts of colored gemstones and large diamonds also create unique and attention-getting chandelier rings and necklaces. Seven exquisite cushion-cut sapphires are interspersed with white round diamonds in an elegant three-row drop to make a sensational necklace for a sapphire lover. The alternating rows of single and double deeply blue sapphires is regal and striking. Similarly, four cushion-cut sapphires are haloed by 58 white round diamonds in a playful and stunning statement ring, perfect for wearing with a sapphire bracelet and/or blue eyes.
Like many chandeliers, it is the interplay of shapes or cuts that draws the idea and creates the highlight of the design. A dainty yet prominent bib necklace features drop-shape fancy color diamonds and white diamond shuttles that hang like tendrils from a central heart-shaped cut out of white diamonds. They effect is ladylike and serene, the kind of chandelier that tastefully brightens a room without calling excessive attention to itself. This necklace is a remarkable feat of refinement and sophistication.
Fancy Yellow diamonds have been enjoying a “moment” of late. The warm hues and the sunshine sparkle of yellow diamonds brings an uplifting feeling to any fine jewelry design. In the new PICCHIOTTI chandelier ring, various cuts of unique Fancy Color diamonds come together in a jumble of joy. Pear-shaped Fancy Yellow diamonds caress marquise and round natural color brown diamonds, all atop 18K yellow gold. The purposeful asymmetry of the ring is sensational, breaking all the rules in the most appealing way.
To lift your mood or elevate your style, PICCHIOTTI chandelier earrings and chandelier style necklaces and rings offer a world of options in jewels tones or the timeless radiance of diamonds. Feel free to match the jewel tones to your favorite wardrobe colors or chart a brave course with contrasting hues like translucent green emeralds with a red power suit or elegant rubies with an all-black ensemble. While chandelier may be the style of the moment, the Picchiotti family’s highly trained eye in selecting only the most superlative of gemstones turns their unique and fashionable styles into precious mementos and sparkling treasured heirlooms.
