One of the more stupid mistakes I’ve made in my life was when I continued to wear heavy earrings on an already ripping earring hole. The result was that my earring hole basically ripped all the way down my lobe, remaining intact by only a small amount of skin. I ended up going to a plastic surgeon who numbed me up, sliced my ear a bit, then stitched it back together. After about 6 weeks I could repierce my ear and all has been well since then!
I’ve pretty much stuck with really light and simple earrings in recent years. My lobes can’t handle the weight! Honestly I’ve thought about getting some of these because I love statement earrings but I never think of it at the right time!
Minimalistic jewelry has been more of a trend these days, so that works pretty well with my earring choices. It seems like just yesterday it was huge bubble necklaces and bright statement earrings, doesn’t it?
I’m sold out for gold as you can tell, but I still remember when I would exclusively wear silver jewelry. I’ve mixed metals on occasion, but that sometimes feels a little cluttered to me.
What makes these 4 earrings so easy to wear is that they are delicate enough to be worn as the only piece of jewelry, other than my wedding bands, or can very easily be mixed with a longer necklace. I have a jewelry box on my nightstand, but these 4 pairs never make it inside. They are usually sitting right on top of the jewelry box, ready for the next day.
Do you swap out your jewelry often, or do you have a few front runners like I do?
