Mini Trend: Swingy Tassel Jewelry
These playful pieces are suddenly everywhere. By Michelle Thomas
Comments () | Published March 20, 2013

We’ve always been vocal proponents of the statement bauble. Glinty gold bib necklace? Oh, yes. Dangerously spiked cuff bracelet? Indeed. Giant bejeweled cocktail ring? We’ll take three. This spring, though, a more playful take on statement jewelry has been popping up in the form of swingy tassel earrings and necklaces. A natural extension of global-inspired looks and trendy fringe, these shoulder-grazing danglers and sweeping pendants are a sexy, slinky nod to jet-setting glamour—no travel required.

(Clockwise from top left) Noetic Luna Danglers, $98 at Anthropologie; Juicy Couture Heavy Metal gemstone tassel necklace, $88.99 at Zappos; Kenneth Jay Lane coral beaded tassel earrings, $132 at Max & Chloe; Oscar de la Renta beaded clip earrings, $395 at Net-a-Porter;  Rachel Zoe rhinestone tassel drop earrings, $265 at Neiman Marcus; and touch-tassel earrings, $11.99 at Mango.
