Neiman Marcus, Oscar de la Renta Short Silk Tassel Drop Earring ($390)

How do we love tassels? Let us count the ways.

Long a symbol of wealth and power, the tassel also has a much simpler appeal: it makes us feel good. There’s just something about its swingy movement and flat-out frippery that says Be happy! Life is good!

Henri Bendel, Luxe Bali Fine Lines Tassel Earring ($118)

No wonder the tassel trend has shown such staying power in jewelry.

Tassel earrings are particularly strong for summer, from airy silk tassels in saturated colors to chains and beaded strands. They are one example of the trend towards eye-catching earrings that Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing describes as “a powerful styling statement with lots of movement.”

Tassel necklaces, meanwhile, feature strands made of crystal, chains, pearls and other fanciful materials, including long silk threads and leather.

They’re sure to put a little swing in your look.
