Bottega Veneta’s $820 Earrings Are Going Viral—15 Just-as-Stunning Alternatives Bottega Veneta’s $820 Earrings Are Going Viral—15 Just-as-Stunning Alternatives
Earlier this year fashion editors waited with bated breath for Matthieu Blazy’s debut collection for Bottega Veneta. Building on Daniel Lee’s modern vision, Blazy took things a step further with the addition of relaxed staples like denim jeans and white tanks, along with exceptionally tailored suiting and dresses. The brand is no stranger to viral trend moments—it often sets them—and for the fall-winter 2022 season it was clear that Blazy had a hit on his hands. But the buzzy piece in question wasn’t a handbag or shoe for once, it was a pair of earrings. You can always be sure of a standout accessory moment from Bottega Veneta, and the brand made good on its reputation following a paparazzi capture courtesy of Kendall Jenner. The model stepped out in a full look from the collection, topping off the pale yellow dress with a pair of chunky gold earrings. From then, it didn’t take long before the images found their target audience on TikTok, with most users taking note of Jenner’s larger-than-life drop earrings. Made from silver, the teardrop-shaped baubles almost have the appearance of a hoop when worn on the ear. The earrings come in both silver and gold-plated versions starting at $780 for the medium size, and going upwards of $1350 for the large version. Despite their hefty price tag, as with most items that garner a lot of internet buzz, the earrings virtually sell out every time they’re restocked. But a true editor never lets an out-of-stock notification ruin the fun, so I found some equally gorgeous (and less expensive) alternatives that you don’t have to wait to buy. Keep scrolling for a full run-down on the viral trend, and to shop some great dupes.
