I think I mentioned earlier last week how much I’m loving the current trend for ear jackets – stud earrings with feature backs that hang below or follow the curve of the earlobe.
I only have two pairs myself (they’re proving hard to find in local shops!) but here’s a lust-list of what I’d love to add to my collection!
These gorgeous modern numbers are available in sterling silver, oxidised silver or brass.
A Druzy stud over a hammered fan jacket make these incredible statement earrings
OK, so officially this is an “ear crawler” not an ear jacket, but OMG amirite?
You can chop and change the front and backs with these “Planetary” earrings, giving you a variety of different ways to wear them.
These geometric ear jackets have a bit of a deco feel to them.
Love the way the blue gems glow in these jacket earrings.
These gold plated spike earrings are a little bit edgy.
And these faux-pearl blossoms are a classic take on a modern trend
I have SUCH a soft spot for these enamel hummingbird earrings, and not just because of the yellow blossoms!
Or, you know, STARS
These nautical numbers would be the perfect accompaniment for Breton tops and cigarette pants
Dainty little minimalist jackets that will give a line of sparkle.
***Or maybe a leeeeetle more sparkle…
I like the way the larger feather just seems to float there under your earlobe.
*** The mixed metals in these elegant ear jackets make them versatile and modern
The bright colours in this pair are really fun, and you could easily sub out the purple studs for earrings of different colours.
Another crawler, but I couldn’t resist: the stargazer in me WANTS these!
Never seen or heard of these before. Some of them are stunning. Innovative idea.
Hi Jenny, aren’t they? I love how they have the big statement of dangly earrings, but the neatness and elegance of studs.
Squeee the hummingbirds!!
Ooh, I own earrings like these but didn’t know they had a special name. Now I know! P.S. Could you please link to the items? Or am I just a goober who can’t seem to find the links? xD
Me too! I’ve got two pairs, but I had to ask the staff-member in the jewelery shop what they were actually called! I’d set up hyperlinks in the text, but I’ve changed the listing so hopefully it’s a bit more obvious! Thanks for letting me know 🙂
I’m obsessed with the hummingbirds, but the link points to a different pair. I’m not having any luck finding these myself. Do you have any more info on the seller? Thank you!
Bother! Thanks for letting me know! I’ve updated the link now 🙂
Oh goodness – these are fantastic! What a great idea. I’m off to see about finding them in my neck of the woods! 🙂
When I had short hair it was all about the ears! I went through a whole ear cuff stage. I love all the earrings!
I love ear jackets and crawlers too. I even have some of these and you’ve made me want the others too.
I love the second pair!!
And what about the third?! It’s so cute!!
And this is why I’m broke
I love the Peter Pan earrings..where can I get them??
Hi Gail, here’s the link for them 🙂
Love the Peter pan earrings why can I by them.
