Naomi Campbell in Emerald Green Drop EarringsAre emerald-green teardrop earrings the unofficial “it” accessory for 2013? I can’t believe it either, but it seems like our favorite stars have dropped hints for years now. From the red carpet to ceremonies, here are my favorite celebrities giving us the green light on emerald teardrop earrings:

Michelle Obama in Emerald Green EarringsMichelle Obama in House of Lavande. 

The FLOTUS, affectionately called a stylish, one-woman stimulus package by some, shut down the White House in green in March 2011. For the St. Patrick’s Day celebration, Mrs. Obama donned a vintage pair of shoulder-grazing, emerald earrings from House of Lavande.

Did you know? The color emerald is the hue of mature love.

Beyonce in Lorraine Schwartz Emerald EarringsBeyoncé in Lorraine Schwartz. 

Beyoncé showed humility at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration by donning a pair of emerald clusters from the famed Hollywood jeweler. Clocking in at a cool 80 carats, the dynamic drops could also symbolize Beyoncé’s recent adventures in motherhood with 1-year-old Blue Ivy.

Rihanna in Neil Lane Round Diamonds Emerald Drop EarringsRihanna in Neil Lane.

Between Rihanna’s flaming lob and her optic white pantsuit, the sultry songstress hit a high note with fans and fashion enthusiasts alike at the 2011 Billboard Awards. This was before we even saw a glimpse of her dazzling Neil Lane Round Diamonds Emerald Drop Earrings, successfully uplifting her look with a touch of balance.

Viola Davis in Lorraine Schwartz Green Sapphire Drop EarringsViola Davis in Lorraine Schwartz. 

One of the highlights of the 2012 Oscars was feasting upon Viola Davis in all of her glowing, wig-snatching glory. Ms. Davis stunned in all-emerald-everything, stunting on most of the women in attendance. While a web of sparkling diamonds caged her emerald-green drops, she wowed in a sheath of peace and reflection.

Did you know? Green promotes tranquility and renewal.
