12 PAIRS OF STATEMENT EARRINGS UNDER $300

Whether it’s classic pair of diamond studs or an arm-filled stack of bangles, everyone knows jewelry is the finishing touch to any look. However, no jewelry makes quite an impact the way a pair of statement earrings does. With the ability to transform even the most boring ensemble into a party-ready look, they’re ¬†the ultimate quick fix.

Though statement earrings are a seasonless item, I find myself reaching for them more during the summer. Perhaps because my daily uniform consists of purposely-simple and straightforward dresses (this, this, and this) that are primed for a pair of eye-catching earrings.

Below, 12 bang-for-your-buck pairs you can score for under $300.

CANO SUE GOLD-PLATED EARRINGS

Moda Operandi has led me to so many new brands over the years, one of which is Cano. The Colombian jewelry house is responsible for some of my most favorite pairs of earrings. I love the artful aesthetic and despite the fact that the handmade earrings appear heavy, they’re incredibly lightweight.
