Anthony Nak's signature collection earrings
Try as I might, I can't find a more affordable alternative to Anthony Nak's finely wrought earrings. Each piece is so special and one of a kind that you'd be hard-pressed to accept anything less. Take these 18K gold hoops, made to look like the delicate branches of a birch tree with subtle pave diamonds and a single tourmaline nestled in each earring. Or the dazzling pair of hanging teardrops, featuring mint ice quartz marquis framed in intricate gold settings. While the hoops are casual enough for the office (just be prepared for some envious stares), the stunning teardrops are appropriately glitzy enough to wear to fancy soirees. Launched in 1999 by Anthony Camargo and Nak Armstrong, Anthony Nak enjoyed the spotlight when they were asked to design Barbara and Jenna Bush's jewelry for George W. Bush's 2001 Inaugural Ball. Since then, celebs like Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon have flaunted the brand's unique designs both on the red carpet and off.
