katy perry earrings

While we often credit Katy Perry for candy land dresses and ever-changing hair, there’s no doubt that the singer has some style kudos. Case in point: the earrings she was spotted wearing on a recent trip to Colombia. Made by Colombian-based designer Mercedes Salazar, the festive earrings pay homage to the designer’s Colombian roots. With a special focus on detailed hand-made fabrication and ethnic Latin American materials, their aesthetic is tropical chic. “The earrings are international with a Latin soul,” says Salazar. “The concept behind them was about implementing traditional, Latin-American in earrings that would appeal an international audience”.


It seems she succeeded, because the earrings have not only become favorites among Latin American It-girls, but also caught the attention of Katy Perry. “A friend of mine called me and told me that Katy Perry was wearing my earrings. I rushed to her Instagram page and saw my earrings in several of her pictures. She fell in love with them… she even wore them on her birthday. I was so excited!” says Salazar.  “Each pair of earrings is hand-made by an artisan, making each piece very valuable. They’re fun, they cheer you up. They are powerful… they boost your confidence and make you feel sexy”.

Earrings are available to purchase on mercedessalazar.com, plus,  follow the designer on Instagram @mercedessalazar.
