I've got a thing for earrings. Big, small, hoops, chandeliers, studs - it really doesn't matter, I love 'em all. So I was pleased as punch when AmaraGold, a company based near Boston that operates out of their ISO14001-certified facility, sent me a pair of hammered bead drop earrings (quite possibly my first pair of ecofriendly earrings ever). Amara crafts jewelry that's environmentally and socially responsible, using recycled metals and a patented formula to create beautiful, classic pieces. My 14K yellow gold bead drop earrings are no exception. These little gems have so much sparkle they give off a subtle shimmer in the light. They're also the perfect size and length: long enough to stand out against my dark hair, light enough so that my ears aren't weighed down, casual enough for everyday use, elegant enough for a night out. Best of all, whenever I wear these glistening golden beauties, I feel proud about wearing ethically sourced jewelry.

And that feeling is worth its weight in gold.

Some of my other Amara favorites:
14K gold spiral drop earrings, $425
14K gold silk hinged bangle, $315
14K gold leaf eternity ring, $325
