When it comes to statement jewelry, I hardly ever save anything for a special occasion. I love the way a chunky necklace looks thrown over a basic tee or a pair of extra-sparkly earrings worn with the most casual dress. With that said, there are certain pieces that are simply reserved for specific outfits due to the influence of color or shape. This pair of Dannijo earrings is not one of those things. The name says it all: they’re called “Blanca” which means white and shining in Spanish. White goes with everything and these earrings are no exception. It’s what’s making them my go-to earrings of late. (Example: I wore them with this cocktail dress and then paired them with this t-shirt the next day.) With so many colorful statement earrings in my jewelry box, these have been such a nice change. (I think they’d be extra pretty with this beachy dress this summer, by the way.) The combination of oxidized metal (its what gives them an unpolished look) and super-shiny crystals is such an interesting contrast – edgy and sparkly, rough and refined. Dannijo is good at that kind of thing, the mix. That’s why while these may have been my first pair of Dannijo (hard to believe!), they certainly won’t be my last.

Thanks to Charm & Chain‘s special discount, I’ll be stocking up sooner rather than later. Starting today, they’re giving Luella & June readers a 20% discount on any purchase. With wedding season and other spring soirees on the calendar, the timing couldn’t be better, too. My personal picks: these (any earrings from Bounkit, really), these, and this.   Enter the code LUELLA20 and you should be all set.
