The Edit: 11 Pairs of Double-Sided Earrings

Or how to maximize earring real estate.


Jewelry designers are finally maximizing earring real estate with the advent of double-sided earrings. Rather than fastening your earring with clunky metal backs, or worse, the well-intentioned plastic variety, utilize both ends of the post with backs that create streamlined shapes or an unexpected profile. The best part? Most double-sided earrings give the illusion of being simple studs, so it’s  a subtle way of adding some extra sparkle or hardware.
