So I decided I really like the idea of wearing some earrings with a faint lavender color.
I was originally drawn to this from these pink amethyst (they are very pale lavender in person)earrings at macys ($270)
I contacted an etsy seller to see if she could do something similar with swarovski to drop the cost down. I’m at $40 for these:
Here’s my dress-
Whatcha think? I’m holding back mostly becasue of the difference in the shape.

I found these on Etsy:

A few pretty pairs come up on etsy if you search “purple crystal teardrop”

I think the Etsy ones will look great with your dress.
HOWEVER – I bought some pricy costume jewelry at Macy’s recently and it was superduper high quality. I was really, really impressed with it.

Sometimes the costume jewelry is fantastic from department stores… however Etsy seems much more budget friendly, and in the pictures I can hardly tell the difference, but that might be different in person. I’d probably still go with the Etsy choice though.
