50 Expensive-Looking Earrings Under $50


Are we living in a golden age of earrings? In the last few years, it’s gotten more and more fun to wear them, as all of the rules have been broken: You don’t have to wear matching pairs; you don’t have to get extra piercings to look like you have more than one in each ear (try a “crawler”); a hoop doesn’t have to sit like you thought it did. Moreover, you don’t have to look very hard to find earrings that are much less expensive than they look — even the biggest-box clothing brands have seriously stepped up their game. And if you don’t want to bother looking at all, we’ve rounded up some of the very best options that you can buy online for under $50, from surprising studs to hoops of all shapes and sizes to big, bold, inspired statement pairs — many of which would make excellent Valentine’s Day gifts, incidentally.
