Big Earrings Make the Best Holiday Gifts

This year, big earrings are basically a fail-safe gift. They’re trendy, they’re everywhere, and they don’t have to cost a lot of money. Earrings are also the one piece of jewelry you can actually see underneath layers of sweaters and coats, so they’re fun to wear even in the depths of winter. Read on for ten pairs to buy for everyone on your list, from the woman who can’t get enough sparkles to the one who can’t get enough Rachel Comey.
