Piece of the Week: Jacquie Aiche’s Festival-Ready Earrings
They’re the ultimate Coachella luxury.
Today, the first weekend of Coachella kicks off in Indio, California, meaning the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Governors Ball in New York City, and Bonnaroo in Nashville aren’t far behind.
It’s the perfect occasion to break out warm weather duds from the back of the closet and begin to embrace all things springtime.
There’s nothing like pastel-colored gemstones to evoke a sunny mood. After years of diamond “shaker” success, Jacquie Aiche has added color to the mix, incorporating colored gemstones into her signature dangling gem style.
From necklaces to rings and body chains to ankle bracelets, the undisputed queen of fine jewelry festival style has a rainbow’s assortment of updates to the style synonymous with her brand.
This “Piece of the Week” pair of front-facing shaker hoop earrings would be the perfect accessory to rock at Coachella and beyond.
Crafted in 14-karat yellow gold, they feature diamond studs and seven diamonds dangling from each hoop earring plus tourmalines ranging from blue to green to pink.
Available on the Jacquie Aiche website, they retail for $17,250.
