I’ve long had a thing for Catbird’s “Chained to My Heart” Earrings. I love the tiny diamond and the delicate chain, but haven’t managed to pull the trigger yet. Whether you go for diamond or emerald, they are just the right amount of classic – with a little edge, which I love. Their ballerina earrings are equally pretty. On a whim, I scoured the Internet to try to find something a little more affordable (the diamonds start at $280 a pair) and was pleased to make a few fun discoveries. Vanessa Mooney makes the version above ($108), Steve Madden makes an even more affordable option, and I even found a DIY version (bottom photo – its really good!) right here. Whether you buy, or DIY, I really love the look.
