When I was in sixth grade, I had three piercings in one earlobe and two in the other, and I thought that made me pretty much the coolest girl around. While I spent years wearing a collection of little studs that coordinated but didn't quite match, I eventually fell out of the habit in favor of a single pair of larger earrings and my other piercings healed over. But sometime in the last year or so, I've gotten back into the multi-earring look with an assortment of ear cuffs. I increasingly like the look of an ear full of bling, especially with really short hair like mine.

No one sports that look better than model Adwoa Aboah, who often wears a whole host of different-sized hoops with her shaved head. So I was excited to see that Aboah recently collaborated with ethical fine jeweler John Hardy on a capsule collection. As expected, the collection has plenty of pieces to offer an earring fiend like me, and this simple chain meant to be worn in two piercings is my favorite. I admittedly don't have the cartilage piercing I would need to sport it quite yet, but maybe it'll finally give me an excuse to return to my sixth-grade roots and actually get another piercing or two.
