Etsy Find: Infinity Ear Cuff From Royal Countess

Ear Cuffs are today's new clip-on earrings, and the variety of ear cuffs available gives endless possibilities of self expression. These cuffs slip on to your ear and can be positioned anywhere along the cartilage. It is an easy way to add some edge to your ear without going through painful and scary permanent piercings.

I actually have my cartilage pierced and I love it; however I keep loosing the earring. So I thought that maybe an ear cuff would be much easier to wear, and much easier to find if I drop it. I really enjoy a minimalist style and thus chose this lovely infinity cuff in gold from Royal Countess on etsy. It slips on easily and I can't even feel that I'm wearing it. The only issue I had was adjusting it to my ear size; it was a bit tough to shape.

There are many other options out there, both online at Etsy and in various stores like Claire's, Urban Outfitters and Top Shop. You can get ear cuffs with dangling trinkets, ones that are attached to a earring via a chain, or ones that cover most of your ear. You can even find some that hang on your ear that look like spikes coming out from behind.

What do you think of the whole trend? Would you wear an ear cuff or are some just too much?
