The Made-For-Everyday Jewellery Piece: Ear Cuff

The appeal of the ear cuff lies not just in its practical impermanence (no need for piercings and you can switch it up easily). The fact that its designs span both the costume jewellery and fine jewellery realms, and styles from the helix earring to the conch earring, means there's always something for everyone.
