NEW YORK. Dramatic drop earrings—or Stiletto drops, as they were first called by a high-profile publicist on the red carpet more than 10 years ago—have an important seat at fashion’s table. Long shoulder duster or nearly clavicle-scraping numbers have been spied all year on the lobes of starlets (think Sofia Vergara at the 2017 Emmy Awards) and on models walking couture runways. These public images of the chic pairs inspire jewelry designers to interpret the silhouettes in their own motifs in the hope that shoppers (you and me!) will snap up newly made options in homage to what they’re seeing in the media. So, if you’ve been obsessing over long earrings, here are 13 (it is Halloween week!) striking pairs that you can make your own today.
