When it comes to jewelry, I’m all about layering. Whether I’m layering multiple gold necklaces around my neck or stacking beaded bracelets on my wrists, my motto has always been the more the merrier—I just never expected to get into layering earrings. Recently, I’ve found myself fascinated with fashion-girl ear games as I peruse street style galleries from London Fashion Week and scroll through my Instagram feed. Each ear party looks crazier than the last, and I love it.
Whether it be multiple lobe piercings, cartilage piercings, or even inner-conch piercings, more is definitely more. Before I was ready to take the plunge and get another ear piercing (or five), I wanted to try the trend with a little less commitment. Enter: the ear cuff, aka the perfect way to accessorize your ear and up your jewelry game, no piercing necessary. That said, if you do have a piercing, there are also many cartilage pieces for your perusal. From small cuffs to threaded styles and pieces that run along your entire inner ear, there’s a cuff for everyone.
