These stunning 1950s citrine and brown topaz earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli were designed to go with her pineapple brooch in the same colors. If you’re lucky enough to already have the brooch, these earrings are a definite must for you. If you don’t have the brooch, you can buy the earrings anyway because the colors are gorgeous and look great with black, brown, taupe, grey, and more. For those who haven’t seen the brooch, take a look here. (The brooch is no longer available.) These earrings are clip-backs.
