With yellow dominating the color palette this season, it’s important to find the right accent shades to make your formal looks pop. Enter the Keely Green Onyx & Emerald Drop Earrings by Ila. Featuring a pear-cut emerald post and rose-cut green onyx stone — both set in 14k yellow gold — they add understated glamour to your formal looks.

Wear them with an off-shoulder gown and gold necklace for elegant style that takes their breath away. While we’re recommending them as a complimentary color to yellow, they really look great with any color that mixes well with green, especially blues and purples. Whatever you do, just please wear your hair up. Drop earrings demand attention, and leaving your hair down deprives them.

Fine jewelry is almost always reserved for formal affairs, but don’t overlook the earrings’ potential to glam-up your cabana style this summer. Try them with a tropical wrap dress over your swimsuit when you need something that takes you from lounging at the pool to late afternoon cocktails.

Raised in a family of jewelers who trace their heritage to Rajasthan, India, Ila Sodhani spent eight years designing jewelry with her parents before partnering with her brother, an MIT engineer, to launch her eponymous jewelry line.
