For the past couple of seasons, the necklace has been the star of the accessories show. Now it is time to shift the attention a little higher to the earlobes. Delicate gold and silver studs and hoops have been replaced this season with bold, eye-catching baubles with interesting shapes and materials. Read on for three standout picks to suit any style.
