Swarovski Pearl Drop Earrings

I mentioned in my last Current Favorites post that I am really liking “Downton Abbey”.

If you all know me by now (and you should!) you’d know that I love jewelry. It should come as no surprise that I’m mesmerized by all the jewelry worn by the actresses on the show.

Small pearl drop earrings were, of course, a staple in any Edwardian woman’s wardrobe. I used to think they were too simple for my tastes, but seeing them on Lady Mary Crawley made me change my mind about them.

I purchased a pair of pearl drop earrings from a European seller whose shop is named Jewelry by Indrea

The earrings arrived in a cute white box tied with red ribbons. Indrea included a very nice handwritten note. It was a lovely gesture, especially in an age when people rarely write notes anymore.

The earrings are Swarovski pearls (6mm) on sterling silver hooks.

I’ve been wearing these a lot lately and I really like them. They’re subtle and conservative enough for the doctor’s office I work in, but they still make me feel like I put effort into my whole look. 🙂

Here is the shop’s listing for more earrings like mine.
