Remember back in June when we all muted our social media channels to listen and learn about Black experiences? In addition to listening to Black voices in the industry, I took that time to seek out Black owned fashion brands, not just to follow on Instagram, but to spend my money. A jewelry designer I absolutely fell in love with is Mateo New York. I know this sounds old fashioned, but I don’t buy fine jewelry for myself. I tell my husband what I like and then wait for an occasion to come up and then he buys it. This time though, I sent him the link so he could choose and he settled on these earrings by Mateo New York.
Floating Pearl Hoop Earrings by Mateo New York
I love a beautiful piece of jewelry, but I must say I also love that my husband has good taste. These gold and pearl hoop earrings are unique and classy, with a slight edge that take it beyond the usual pearl earrings. While I do tend to wear big earrings with my summer dresses, I love the size of these ones for more polished looks.
Scroll down to see them on. You’ll see the front piece is a hoop, and there is a pearl jacket that goes behind to give the illusion that it is floating. The earrings are 14K gold and are very comfortable.
As an aside, you know I really love my readers when I take close up shots of earrings, despite the gray flyaways and eyebrows that haven’t been done since March (COVID…). I also have affiliate links for some other gorgeous Mateo jewelry pieces to add to you wish list.
