Update your look with a standout pair of statement earrings
At the 89th annual Academy Awards Charlize Theron stepped out in a stunning metallic floor-length gown by Dior, but she completed her look with a dazzling pair of statement earrings.
Her eye-catching Chopard earrings caught the attention of many admirers on social media. They were white gold and featured a staggering 59.9 carats worth of diamonds.
