Brenda Smith earrings


This Year, It's Earrings,
Earrings Everywhere

Are you ready for the year of the ear?
If you haven’t heard — it’s here.


We as a culture are feeling a little more rebellious than usual in 2017, and earrings are the perfect way to translate that sentiment into jewelry. This is a big, brave, bold moment for the ear, from creative multi-piercing combinations spotted on street-style stars to Beyonce’s mega-statement ear wear at the 2017 Grammys.

Perfect for Stacking

The fun of multiple ear piercings has reached every age group of the customer base, and if you’re smart, you’ll stock plenty of stack-ready earrings to match the demand. Remind your shoppers that if they’re rocking multiple piercings, each pair of earrings they take home is several looks in one — especially if they’re bold enough to try asymmetrical styling.
