Since I started working for this website, I've added three holes to my head, mostly because my co-workers have carefully curated their ears with very stylish jewelry, but mainly because almost every other industry event involves free piercings. So why not?
But when it comes to my own ear aesthetic, it's been a lot of the same: a pair of gold hoops, an ear cuff from Catbird and the three studs that came with said free piercings. I've made a point to swap out what I usually wear but never really went through with it. Finally, I feel the need to spice up my piercings, thanks to a trio pack by Miami-based brand Éliou.
This three-piece set has everything: pearls, beads, a glass chili and my favorite swear word. It still maintains my penchant for gold jewelry, but kicks it up a notch with fun, tongue-in-cheek details. I can see myself mixing and matching them with the very humble group of earrings I already own, or wearing all three on one ear for the ultimate conversation piece.
