Two is better than one, which makes earrings doubly desirable. And when dressing up to go out, there is nothing like a pair of earrings to set the mood. Slinky, sexy, opulent, lavish, playful, glamorous: earrings can say all these things in just a few carats and one little swish of the head. Long earrings make me hold my head high and are powerful enough to change my mood - how could you feel anything but fabulous with a pair of diamond and pink sapphire feather earrings by Chanel swaying from your lobes? And as it is that time of year, I have made a selection of my favourite earrings of the past year, which you would find in my dream jewellery box with 2012 embossed on the lid.
