In another perfectly posed selfie, Huntington-Whiteley displayed a pair of crystal chandelier earrings. While it's unclear if this pair was made with precious gem stones or beautifully crafted costume jewelry, one thing is for sure: They look amazing.
Huntington-Whiteley took the retro trend a step further by paring this pick with a '90s-inspired topknot with face-framing pieces. The bold earrings make for an excellent statement — and they're great for someone who prefers to wear a single piece of jewelry at a time.
