I never had the desire to get my ears pierced. But - on occasion (mostly when attending reenactment balls) I did wish for some little elegant, silvery, dangly bit of earring to complete my outfit. Well - last fall I discovered the perfect solution. Magnetic earrings! I happened up on Suzy Mei Mei , and Etsy store that has many different types of lovely little magnetic earrings. I ordered a pair of silver and aquamarine little earrings last year, and have worn them to two different dances - I was a little paranoid that they might slip off during the energetic Virginia Reels, or the Polka, but I had no reason to fear! They stayed put  and looked great all night. Anyway - I hope the girls who don't have pierced ears will appreciate learning about this fun option as much as I have!

My sister and I discovered these back in 2006 (and they do work really well), but I've never seen any of the dangly ones! There are also some hoops you can buy on Ebay which use a spring mechanism to hold to your ear - they don't pinch like normal clip-ons! :D

Very cool! I know that before I pierced my ears I would sometimes just want to wear earrings... These would make great gifts too... Thank you! :)
