My cry for help for reasonably priced green earrings was answered better than I could have expected, so thank you to everyone that contributed their advice! My favorites were suggested by Lucky Designs. Roberta Chiarella makes great chunky crystal earrings in a myriad [$10 SAT word!] of colors. I could easily buy these and be satisfied…..
…however, I will not let myself off that easy. I’m still hunting, and in the process, rediscovered Alexis Bittar, one of my favorite designers. I don’t know why I didn’t think of him sooner, since I own many of his lucite pieces. They have this beautiful, subtle glow to them, and are such a wonderful departure from the traditional gemstones and diamonds. Best of all, most are under $100!
