Most people don’t know this about me: I have one split earlobe. As a young’un starting out in university, I harboured an unhealthy obsession with big, colourful ear baubles. So fervent was my devotion, I didn’t even notice when my left earlobe eventually gave out from years of daily wear. After that I vowed to only wear teeny tiny studs….that is, until now.

But of course the oversized earrings that have caught my attention lately aren’t anything like the tacky pieces I wore nearly a decade ago. Being older and wiser and with better taste, nowadays I prefer bold, minimal pieces in solid gold or silver. Céline is perhaps the most well-known dealer of these notice-me accessories. Lucky for us more modestly-salaried individuals, you can buy really beautiful knock-offs from, where else, Zara. They’re the tear-dropped beauties 5th from the top, and although these are much too heavy and ostentatious for daily wear, they’re ideal for the occasional holiday party. You see? I did learn an important lesson from this after all.
