While heavily adorned ears may have once been a trend reserved for the punk scene, it’s now become part of the norm, no matter what your personal style may be. However, today’s lobes (and beyond) are decorated in a much more understated way. We’re all about tiny, dainty earrings that you can pile on—that is if you have enough piercings to hold them all. Subtle enough for any occasion, from the office to the bar, but interesting enough to make quite a statement, like at a special event, we’re obsessed with adorning our ears with these sweet designs.
We rounded up the prettiest, most delicate earrings, from simple studs and tiny hoops to Xs and Os and diamond-encrusted cat silhouettes. Use these beauties as a guide to tell a story with your very own ear party.
