Fashion keeps trying to drive a stake through the trend, but the dramatic tiered dangle earrings known as chandeliers return every night at sunset. Although officially replaced as the “it” accessory by the statement necklace, chandeliers are still a celebrity staple. That’s because stars dressing for the red carpet know these sexy earring styles flatter them most.

Although in the past, chandeliers were often worn with the hair down, the choice today is most often a loose updo. They are the perfect foil for a strapless dress and even work with styles with shine, sequins or beaded embroidery. 

The latest chandelier styles incorporate pear-shaped, often colorful, gemstones. But, as Christina Ricci proves above, diamonds are dazzling too.

    I think there is a space for chandelier style earrings that aren’t all diamonds, like Emmy Rossum’s above. This might be what the the world of gold earring needs right now (a segment that is dead at our retail store)
