And now Real Simple editors are adding them to their wish lists!
When Etsy recently invited some Real Simple editors to their offices to learn about emerging trends their experts are noticing on the site (stay tuned for those results!), we also happened to learn about some style trends taking over at the Etsy office. Apparently, there's one designer of tortoise shell earrings everyone who works there is wearing right now. According to our insider source, it's gotten to the point that sometimes multiple employees in a meeting happen to be wearing these ultra-trendy earrings. And after scoping out the selection on the maker's shop, called Machete, we've decided there's no way we can fight this trend—we're hopping on board and buying a pair for everyone we know.
Clare Blonde Tortoise Hoop Earrings
Crafted from Italian imported acetate, these earrings combine an ultra-modern shape with a tortoise shell effect that will always remind us of summer. Break out your favorite shell sunglasses for a coordinated look.
