Edgy, outstanding, elaborate, distinctive ear accessory for Summer 2013… ear cuffs.  Searching for the most prominent key element of Summer 2013 and observing its continuity from the previous seasons, I couldn’t get over the feeling that ear cuffs makes a statement without being a cliche.  I like that finally my favorite wardrobe element  starts to be more wide-spread  accessory thanks to the trend. Despite the fact that I’m trying to avoid a wild goose chase for the hottest trends for any season mostly for economical and practical reasons, I wear ear cuff not because it’s en vogue but it assists to express my nature – eager to explore and spice up the style with common sense.

Through the centuries, the ear ornamentation was the way to express oneself either for personal beliefs or the lifestyle clarifying association to groups or tribes.  The evolution of the ear decoration resulted in many forms and shapes evaluating the the ear cuff model as well. The first who finally defined the ear cuff accessory was Marcel Boucher, jewellery designer. In 1950 he “invented” the newfangled style of ear jewellery entitled “Earrite” – one-piece earring that may be hooked over the ear without any piercing.
