Treat Yourself Friday: Feel Like Poolside Royalty in These Beaded Drop Earrings

Every Friday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase, for which it’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity. If you’re looking for cheap thrills instead, check back every Monday for a fun pick-me-up that will still leave you with enough cash for dinner.

If you’re looking for elegance without diamonds, and you want to look playful but not kitschy, you usually have to do some digging. Luckily for accessory fiends, Miguel Ases has designed just what you’re looking for. These tropical-colored beads are in their natural habitat beside any pool or sandy, white shoreline, and the Swarovski-crystal accents radiate extravagance without being overwhelming. And when it’s time to cover up and throw on some heels, you’re good to go for any summertime evening soirée.
