So. We all agree that Dannii's earrings looked fab on Saturday night (and I am very tempted to do a post composed entirely of photos of her outfit choices on this year's X Factor - am style crushing on Dannii's wardrobe in a big way.)
As predicted, they're kind of on the expensive side, with a price tag of £25,500. While that gets you a whopping big pair of 18ct diamond and Amazonite yellow gold earrings, I think they might have looked better on the telly than they do In Real Life.
Don't they look a bit like something Katie Price's alter-ego might pair with a particularly klassy outfit?
Anyway, here are a few of my picks from Etsy that won't do quite as much damage to your pocket!
Alternatively, you could always try getting someone to custom make a pair of turquoise earrings to your exact specifications through Etsy's "Alchemy" service. This involves creating a wanted ad detailing what you're after and how much you'd ideally like to pay, and then Etsy sellers bid for your business to create the item.
It's a service I haven't used myself, but a friend designed her own bespoke ring and then had it made through Alchemy and it turned out beautifully so I think it's pretty magic. (Couldn't resist.)
