20 gorgeous ear climbers for every occasion

Multiple piercings? Nope, not necessary with this earring trend that anyone can pull off. Whether you’re toiling away at your desk or going out on the town, ear climbers (or ear crawlers — they go by both names) may soon be your favorite new way to show off your style. (Psst! All of our picks here are sold in pairs, but it’s also cool to wear a climber on just one ear and a stud in the other.)
