Inspiring designs - innovative earrings

I am a big fan of pinterest for finding and sharing beautiful jewellery designs and I have noticed a trend for some unusual and innovative earring designs.
Front and back earrings
Traditionally earrings are designed to be seen front on but this new trend for front and back earrings means they are more versatile as they can often be worn two ways. The focus on the back of the earring means that there is something to be seen from the back of your head!


These pearl earrings worn by Emma Watson have a smaller pearl stud at the front and a larger one at the back.

These earrings are pearls on one side and sterling silver and cubic zircona on the other and can be worn either way around.

These earrings feature a stylised hook coming from the back around to the ear lobe

These are rose gold plated and available from Astrid and Miyu

Ear climbers


Ear climbers, sometimes called vines, are often studs with an additional piece of wire so they stay in place ‘climbing’ up the ear rather than hanging down.
