Apparently, the way to make rough-cut drop earrings look less clunky is to shrink them down while making them look otherwise more clunky, with textured studs. This inch-long amethyst pair ($98) transcends the street vendor look (nothing wrong with that, ladies, but it doesn't work in every situation) and would add some character to a simple tank in the summer or a tailored jacket later on. And they're from Brooks Brothers? Seriously, who knew?
