Decorate You Ears: Ear Cuffs & Wraps

Today we're talking about our ears! Personally, I can't pierce my ears because when I did, I got keloids. Essentially, keloids are an accumulated mass of scar tissue which personally took 3 surgeries, 2 years of steroid injections, and a week of radiation treatment to remove. (I'm not showing you what they looked like so if you're curious, google at your own risk 😬). Sooooo yeah, no ear piercings for me 😅


After realizing I couldn't (or rather shouldn't) pierce my ears again I did try clip on earrings, but I never really got into them. What did catch my attention were ear cuffs and ear wraps! The first ear wrap I fell in love with was one custom made for me by my friend's mother. Made from brass and blown glass. Let me tell you, I LOVED THAT EAR CUFF (and still do)!


So today, I'm offering up a few options for you to get started on your ear cuff/wrap journey. 2 of the items I own/use and the last is one that's on my wish list 🙌🏾 (Pics below)


ana luisa: SIMPLE EAR CUFF, $30

This "smol" ear cuff is the one I wear most often. The soft gold finish blends well with any outfit. Don't worry about this getting knocked off your ear. Once you put it on, give it a small press and it's ON. Also, after many months of wear I can say that this doesn't bend out of shape. It may look delicate but it's built to last, retain it's shape, and is incredible versatile.


Etsy: FoxwoodForest: Darkness // athame and black quartz single ear wrap, $34

Next is a wrap that gives off that multi-piercing look. This ear wrap goes around the ear to drape down elegantly. I love the aesthetic of this wrap because it really goes well with my nearly all black wardrobe and platform/moto boots. I will say even when you give this wrap a bit of a squeeze you don't want to fully head bang in this but it can take a "Cha Cha Slide". Also Etsy in general is a great place to find a variety of ear cuffs and wraps. So type "ear cuff" or "ear wrap" and have fun scrolling through pages of hand crafted jewelry!


MAM: Gold Earcuff SOLID 844, $132

Last on this list is the MAM set of ear cuffs. I saw these in an Instagram AD and I can't stop looking at them. They have both gold and silver finished in most of their styles so I could easily see why it would be beneficial to get one set of each finish and mix/match along the ear(s). The design linked is just one of their various options for piercing free ear decoration. MAM designs are creative, bold, yet timeless... I may get these as a holiday present for myself 👀


There you have it! A few places to get you started on decorating your ears without needing to shove a needle through your ear. But if you want to pierce your ears or already have pierced ears you can wear these too!


Note: I need to mention that I wear BeatsX headphones so if you like to wear those giant overhead headphones I'm not sure how these ear cuff/wrap options would effect your headphone wearing experience.
