Not that there’s anything wrong with traditional earrings, but for those who don’t have pierced ears, the options — while equally as beautiful as their counterparts — can often be limited. That said the increasing popularity of cuffed earrings is one jewelry trend that requires no piercings at all, making it a highly covetable option among both those who have and have not braved the needle to their lobes. Aside from the apparent convenience of wearing jewelry that stays snug on your ears without any additional effort, the 2019 earrings trend is, to put it simply, cool.
Though it may have been the simple, minimalist styles resembling that of hoops or miniature versions of your favorite bracelet, ear cuffs have come a long way since they first appeared among their fellow jewelry trends. Now, thanks to the increasing number of Instagram-worthy jewelry stacks — whether they’re of the earring variety or not — this trend has become more versatile than ever, enticing anyone and everyone to add on as many or as little as they want.
If you’re just stepping into the earring trend, try this Minimal Ear Cuff, $35, from Bing Bang to start. Want something that stands out a little more?
