When it comes to jewellery, I’m attracted to gigantic Elizabeth Taylor-like things, although I rarely wear them. I did however wear these Kenneth Jay Lane chandeliers at two events recently to a slew of compliments. Of course they were a hit — just look at them: they’re probably the biggest, brightest and shiniest things I’ve ever had on my ears. Just spectacular. 

TIP: Most clip-ons (if the earrings are heavy, I actually prefer clip-ons) come with little cushions (they look like this) that do two things: make the earrings more comfortable to wear and help secure them in place. Use them. You don’t want to spend the entire evening catching your earrings as they slide down your ear — because I totally did that.
