I don't have any cartilage piercings, which is a darn shame considering the fact that I have a shaved head that shows off earrings very well and I rarely leave the house without wearing any. I love how an earful of little studs and hoops looks, as demonstrated by fellow buzzcut-wearer Adwoa Aboah and quite a few of my (not buzzed, but still badass) Fashionista colleagues. But for whatever reason, I've just never gotten around to adding piercings to the few I have in my lobes.
This is one reason that I'm so intrigued by these little cuffs from Mejuri, a Canadian fine jewelry brand that promises an "ethical supply chain" and "fair pricing" for luxury pieces made in Canada and South Korea. I feel like wearing one — or stacking a few different styles — would be a quick way to approximate the look I love without actually having to, you know, commit to another piercing. Seems like the perfect shortcut to me.
Edged cuff, $30, available at Mejuri
