Introducing the lobe hook: earrings that wrap from the top of the lobes to the bottom, usually secured by a stud in the middle, as seen at cool-girl brands Faris and Completedworks. Plenty of rock ’n’ roll, no painful piercings required.

The CSM grad’s pieces are made of unusual stones sourced in his native Brazil, such as nephrite jade and chalcedony, and have been worn by Michelle Obama and Saoirse Ronan.
