A great statement earring is always fun to wear, but it's usually impractical for every day. The more dramatic the dangler, the more likely it will tangle in hair and drag down lobes. These light-as-air drop earrings by designer Katie Diamond are pretty enough to transition from the office to dinner, but won't get in the way of your daily duties. The mix of gold and black garnet has a classic Art Deco appeal, but the shape is decidedly modern.
