Like the jewelry equivalent of a summer’s tank top, the threader earring is cool and casual and can easily be dressed up or down.
Simply pull through the ear—an action that, admittedly, may have some feeling queasy—and voilá! You’ve got an eye-catching look, no fuss, no earring backs to worry about. A good threader can break up the repetition of a stud earring party, spicing up the group with its linear design, whether it hangs long or short or somewhere in between.
Sometimes called hooks or even “through” earrings, threaders are youthful, “it”-person fashion, especially when constructed of a dangling chain. But the charming style might appeal to shoppers of all ages and is not only for the young and young at heart, with many variations offering a sophisticated—and high-dollar—take.
Here (and above), 13 styles to thread on this summer and beyond.
