I read this in a Glamour article and begged to disagree. They had this to say about earring choices for bridesmaids:

Now, in my opinion, bridesmaids’ dresses can often be showy and over-the-top. And even if they are subtle, large earrings can be distracting. The idea is to enhance the look of the bride, not upstage her.
Here’s a pair of earrings I’d suggest for either type of dresses, whether it be ostentatious or ordinary:
Round Moissanite Inside-Outside Hoop Earrings
Inside-outside hoop earrings with approximately 9/10ct t.w. (dia equiv) Charles and Colvard created round moissanite stones. Each earring measures 16x2mm wide, set in 14kt white gold.
