STYLE TIP 1: Statement Jewelry

  • Of course, we think tassel jewelry adds just the right amount of double meaning for a graduate, but it really is a great way to work some statement jewelry into your look.
  • Pick tassels that work well with your complexion or eyes: Warm colors like those in our Tiered Tassel Earrings in Red Neutrals complement brown eyes and warm complexion.
  • Add a hat if you’re comfortable (or bring one along to try out for a couple of shots)

STYLE TIP 2: Sparkly Earrings for Close Up Headshots

  • We love our Druzy Jewelry pieces because they catch the light so well and really “show up” on camera.
  • We’ve got them in *almost* as many shades as our tassels… and, with options available for silver, yellow gold or rose gold metal elements, you really can create the perfect look!
  • For fair skin, we love the way our Black Druzy Earrings pop in a headshot.
