Even if the gurus at Pantone hadn't chosen emerald green as the color of 2013, we'd still be pretty smitten with malachite — the deep, rich hue and naturally swirled pattern has made it one of our newest obsessions. So, when we spied these Camille drop earrings from local designer Rachelle Céline, we were obviously hooked. The combination of emerald green stones and delicate gold wire feels so right for spring, and these handcrafted beauties blend a globe-trotting vibe with a touch of handcrafted luxury — you could probably convince your friends that you scored them on a vacation to some exotic isle. And, of course, we wouldn't say a word otherwise — your stylish secrets are always safe with us.
