Statement earrings are fun, but sometimes you don’t want the weight or the size of a full chandelier danglin’ for your delicate lobes. Fortunately, tiny, little studs are a favorite look of late, making their own statement with funky, unusual shapes and crazy fun colors. They prove that big things come in small packages — innocent little stud earrings, we salute you. Check out some of our favorite pairs of studs to wear this season.
