… ear jackets, crawlers, and duet earrings.
I’m still a bit amazed that new types of earring could be created AT ALL, and tickled that these three styles have become more mainstream and wearable since they first showed up on celebs walking the red carpet. They’re edgy, off-kilter, and not likely to suit everyone’s taste, but if you’re curious to try ear jackets, ear crawlers, or duet earrings, here are a few styles I’m ogling these days:
I own these, as evidenced by this weekend’s outfit post, and they are so lovely in motion. They’re also quite comfortable to wear and stay put without pinching at all. I have the onyx version, but I believe these are pearls. (Wanted you to see a close-up on them on!) 5% of Pulso’s profits are donated to a different charity each month.
I own these, too, and they’ve turned out to be surprisingly versatile. I reach for them when a drop feels like too much, but a stud feels like not enough. They come in silver, gold, and rose gold, too.
Diamond Shield Ear Jacket Pin – $21.99
How cool is THAT? It’s sold as a single, but you could wear with a gold stud in the other ear, or try this similar ear pin minus the dangle.
I’ve got a slightly more claw-like version of these myself, and adore them. (Mine are shaped like this, but textured.) I worried that the heavy back would slip off on its own, but it’s quite secure. My pair drew a compliment from my 72-year-old dad. Surprised the heck outta me, but pleased me to no end.
These will be much subtler in their front-backery, but I bet they’ll be so graceful in motion.This pair also comes in gold. I love pretty much everything nOir designs – this mismatched pair with a spiky ear crawler is spectacular, too.
This pair is just sold as just jackets, which means you can swap in any post you like. Of course, you can do that with any ear jackets, but some styles are more conducive than others. These would look fab with a pearl or CZ stud.
Double-sided Ball Studs – $7.77
I’ve seen this style called “duet,” and although the look of the earrings takes some getting used to, I love that name. The larger ball sits behind your lobe and just peeks out. When the back ball is really large it can look droopy and almost painful, but these two are close enough in size that they just look unusual and eye-catching.
Anyone else digging this trend? Are you partial to ear jackets, crawlers, duets, or all of the above?
