Melissa Joy Manning Pyrite Earrings
$125 at Net-a-Porter
California-based jewelry designer Melissa Joy Manning is one of my favorite jewelry designers. Not only do I love her jewelry, I love that they are affordable enough for me to buy. I often find her pieces at Good in Beacon Hill, though tonight I stumbled across these gold and pyrite earrings online. These Melissa Joy Manning earrings are handmade from recycled 14-karat gold and 10.00-carats of raw faceted pyrite. I have a thing for pyrite too.

Raising the bar a few dollars. . . Last Wednesday it was Gifts for Her Under $25. Do I see see $50? Splurge a little on your sister or your BFF. These presents under $50 are all seriously cute. I’d love the earrings. The tape holder is tres chic, but not sure my desk is glam enough. The note blocks are cool though. And if you’re not totally into camo fashion, but want a taste of the trend, the cosmetic pouch is perfect.
