Mini Trend: Swingy Tassel Jewelry

These playful pieces are suddenly everywhere.

By: Michelle Thomas

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.
