Right now, earrings are one of our favorite ways to accessorize, because current earrings trends feel more wearable than ever before. On-point earrings are just as good with a T-shirt and jeans as they are with special occasion clothing (possibly even better). And since we can get away with buying one pair of earrings to wear everywhere without looking lazy, even people who historically don't like to adorn their lobes are popping on these baubles (including yours truly).
That said, it can still be hard to pull the trigger on a new pair. (Yes, even with all the covetable earrings on the market right now.) The last thing anyone wants is a pair of statement earrings that too many other people are also making a statement with.
To give you that extra push to go for the literal gold, we've rounded up the 10 best small shops to buy earrings from right now. It's a mix of familiar names to cool, under-the-radar jewelry purveyors, so take a gander at the picks ahead.
