Jewelry photos are strange. All the small pieces look big … and all the big pieces look small. From this picture, you might think my new Wildflower Earrings were harmless little studs, but I assure you that they are actually big, bold, kickass earrings. I bet you didn’t know that flowers could kick ass. Well, they can, so don’t mess with these babies.

Gorgeous client Melissa was wearing these when she had her picture taken by Bill Cunningham of the New York Times. The earrings are 18K yellow gold with 83 points of black diamonds surrounding the pearl centers. There are 100 points in one carat, by the way. There. You learned something today. Don’t say I never did anything for you.
Don’t forget to go to my website and shop my sale!
Right now, I have about 4 pairs of earrings, and so I am constantly on the lookout for more. If only, if only I could buy these!
They’re gorgeous! I’d love to get a look at them in person.
If it is necessary to inform a potential client how many points make a carat, they should give these incredible earrings to me; I can appreciate them! Pantpantpantpant.
Savvy Mode SG says
they certainly are bold and dramatic.
Couture Carrie says
Those are delightful!

Flowers, too? Everything can kick my ass these days, apparently.
Rice and Beans Vintage Clothing says
Very Nice! I’d love to see them closeup.
Oh Wendy, why must you always amaze me? You have got to be one of the most talented and funny women I’ve ever known. Stylish, too! Love those earrings!
Ooooooh!!! When I get all rich and fancy I’m going to swan around in these and have my (recently tightened jaw and ear) photoed in some magazine wearing them. So sunny delicious!

I love earrings that can kick ass. And these are no exception! Gorgeous 😀
It’s so hard to gauge size of jewelry and even clothing when ordering on the Internet. Photos do make items seem bigger or smaller than they are.
La Belette Rouge says
Those are really lovely. No wonder Bill Cunningham stopped Melissa, well that and she is lovely.
I did learn something.
If I had any of your pieces they wouldn’t be jumbled with all of my ‘less 20 bucks’ necklaces would they?
Even really cheap silver pieces are sealed in plastic bags or in proper boxes. I’m really hanging out to get at least one. One of those days.. when the exchange rate isn’t so brutal.
pearls. black diamonds. and daisy looking earrings. DROOOOOL. these are amazing!
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-these are just soo gorgeous, a really lovely timeless set of earrings.
They are so pretty, they remind me of Daisy perfume.
Jen (MahaloFashion) says

Make Do Style says
They are divine – my favourite look – I have a rubbish cheap pair I love but now I need to work my ass of for these!!
The earrings are beautiful!
There is a great series of photos and voice-over by Bill Cunningham on the NY Times website this morning on “Dressing the Modern Woman in NY.” I know you won’t like it since it’s all about the black 🙂 but it’s still fun to see since we haven’t even been able to wear coats yet this “winter” in L.A.
Leah, I’m actually finding it a tad chilly in your town today. 🙂
Nina (femme rationale) says
i thought they were small and dainty, too, before you told us otherwise. they look so fun and whimsical.
Wendy!! You’re in LA already??!! I’m sending you an email right now. Actually today is the first really cold day we have had AND you are just in time for rain that just started less than a minute ago here – sorry.
Miss Janey says
They’re gorgeous at any size.
