Looking for a Stud?

In honor of November babies, I was inspired to post on the November birthstone Citrine.  Being a mom, especially a mom to young children, I know how hard it is to wear jewelry when you have little grabby hands that like to take hold of anything within reach.  For this reason, I have resorted to wearing primarily studs.  However, earrings are the easiest way to add glamour to any outfit.  So, I am always in search of gorgeous stones, and this month I've been loving Citrine.  


I found myself on Tiffany & Co's website, drooling over these gorgeous Citrine Sparklers.  I fell in love with the earrings, but not the price.  It was so easy to add these studs in my shopping cart, but my husband would not approve of spending $550 on "yellow" earrings.  Even after I corrected him that they are not yellow, they are "citrine," I got nowhere. 




So, here are some just as fabulous substitutes I found, all under $75.  I settled on the Kate Spade pair below.  KateSpade.com offers free shipping & 15% off your first online order (enter your email address, and the code will be emailed to you).

All three of these earrings come in different colors.  If you do not happen to be a Citrine fan, here are some other options in purple.
