You may have noticed a new trend on the jewelry scene that’s got nearly everyone clamoring: the ear cuff. A stalwart of the 90s, the ear cuff is making a comeback in a big way. Not only is it around to hug the top of the ear—as per tradition–—but designers have been getting a bit crazier, often encompassing more skin or even designing pieces to sit around the ear. We like this trend because it doesn’t require an appointment at your local piercing establishment and the choices are growing by the day. Our favorites run the gamut from simple to edgy—click through for 10 great picks.
This piece is a way to take advantage of the trend and feel a bit edgy without going totally overboard—it's sweetly minimal.
