Last night the 2010 CFDA winners were announced and one of our absolute favorite jewelry designers, Alexis Bittar, was honored as Accessory Designer of the Year. In honor of this much deserved win its only fitting we are featuring one of our favorite pieces in Alexis' collection this season - the Montauk Turquoise Wave Earrings in Black Lucite.
We've said it once and we will say it again - NO ONE does lucite like Alexis Bittar. What's even more interesting about these earrings is the color of the lucite, black. Black is such an unexpected shade to be featured in lucite, or any sort of gemstone earring really, and we just absolutely love the juxtaposition of the turqoise, gold and crystal detailing on this black lucite base. We'd love to see these true statement earrings paired with a black tie look - we think they would complement a neutral tone or black gown for a summer wedding just perfectly!
These earrings are only available at Alexis Bittar boutique's and online for $225. A special piece that certainly helped Alexis win that prestigious CFDA award for sure!
