Few things are more exciting in high school than prom night: The dresses, the corsages, the photos, and all the dancing make it one of the best evenings of the year. But with the big shebang inching towards you, you may be in need of some last minute prom jewelry. Personally, accessories were the last thing on my mind after picking out my dress, making my hair and nail appointments, and choosing which house we'd be taking photos at.
After watching hundreds of '90s and 2000s movies with prom scenes in them, I pictured my night to be perfect. You know, having my prom date show up with my favorite band (so much love for Kat Stratford and Patrick Verona). Or winning prom queen and splitting the pieces of the crown with my enemies (shout-out to Cady Heron). As it turned out, none of those things happened, but I did have a kickass time at each dance I went to. Those nights were among the most memorable of school, both because of all the dancing and because of the dressing up. How many times do you really get to go all out in your life?
So, if you've got prom coming up and you haven't secured your whole look yet, fear not: There's still some prom jewelry to score with just two or three days left before the big night. Here are 17 options.
