Best Bet: Maison de Morgana Cleopatra Stud Earrings

She’s named after the Arthurian sorceress Morgana la Fey, so Los Angeles–based designer Morgana McNeils often draws inspiration from the gothic macabre and supernatural for her line of jewelry. Stars, crescent moons, and even a bit of Art Deco–infused filigree permeate the collection. These stud earrings stand out for their punky-yet-pretty appeal. Oversized and reminiscent of the statement jewels of the eighties, the black onyx baubles have the look of a vintage find that feels refreshingly modern.
