WFMW: Earrings for the Un-pierced


Mary’s our fancy girl, the one who likes to wear dresses that sparkle…and to accessorize. I remember when she was a tiny baby and a friend of mine asked if we would get her ears pierced when she was young so she wouldn’t feel it. Wouldn’t feel it?! That’s another conversation, though, so I’ll give it a pass for now. Having chosen to have my own ears pierced when I was a teenager, I believe ear piercing is a personal choice. After all, it can’t be undone. And now that I’m an adult with yet another curious baby, I find that I actually rarely wear pierced earrings…I simply value my earlobes too much! When M is a bit older and better equipped to make that choice, I’ll support her whether she decides to pierce or not. For now, though, she still wants to be fancy. The solution: an ear cuff.

I received NO product or compensation for this post.

Now head over to We are that Family for more WFMW ideas.


  1. Wow, that's the prettiest ear cuff I've ever seen! And a beautiful girl too.

  2. Clip-ons would be pretty too. Perhaps you could find them at a thrift store.

  3. Clip-ons simply don't work for my child...never worked for me either. Too "pinchy." They are truly uncomfortable. This ear cuff, once you've got it adjusted around your ear, does not pinch at all, in fact you can forget it's even there.

  4. This is awesome! DD8 asked to get hers pierced. But DD5 was there and vowed to never do it.

    This will work great for her!

  5. Love, love, love! Thank you!

  6. What a great idea! I have a fancy princess girl too. She is only 2 ... so I will wait on the ear jewelry, but when the time comes - I definately like this idea!


Thank you for joining the conversation!
