Given my love of fashion, people might be surprised to know that I’m not a huge “jewelry person”. That is, I love baubles as much as the next girl, but I simply do not have the discipline to change up my look every day. For this reason, you are most likely to find me sporting the same gold studs, with the occasional swap to a silver pair if my outfit demands it.
Recently, however, I’ve been wearing the above double-backed pair with startling proclivity. They were a gift for my last birthday, and let me just tell you that it was love at first sight. The tiny black onyx stud is simple but kind of funky, while the fat pearl on the back adds an ironic Audrey-esque twist. Rather than “business in the front, party in the back,” I like to think of them as “all cool, all the time.”
Given how much use I’ve gotten out these beauties, I’m convinced that every girl needs a pair of double-backed earrings in her repertoire. No matter what style you choose (see/shop a few of my favorites below), they’re guaranteed to be a chic, goes-with-everything essential you won’t soon tire of.
