I made an entry a while ago entitled “Chandelier Earrings #1” about similar pair of earrings I purchased while studying abroad in India my spring 2013 semester in college. As I mentioned in my prior post, these are not actually called “Chandelier Earrings”, but that is what I call them because they look exactly like funky, mini chandeliers hanging from my ears. These earrings are a traditional Indian design and can be found all throughout the country. I did not purchase the really expensive versions of them (made from silver, gold, etc.) because I knew this style was probably something I would not wear very often, so I stuck with the cheaper versions. I was right, I definitely do not wear the “Chandelier Earrings” a lot (especially this colorful pair that are hard to find clothing to match). Nonetheless, on the occasion I do wear them, I always think of my semester abroad in India.
