Back during Dior’s pre-fall 2013 runway show, we first caught glimpse of the “mise en Dior” tribal earring.
This double pearl confection is designed to be worn with the smaller pearl in the front, and the larger pearl in the back.
They are not necessarily meant to be worn in pairs, so just wearing one is something Dior likes, as apparently does Emma Watson.
They don’t just come in pearls, either — there are many varieties. The version in gold and palladium plate are called “tee shirt earrings,” and they have a more edgy vibe than the pearls.
Then with their cruise 2014 line, they expanded on the design by making the “gum tee shirt earring” that has a matte rubber lacquer finish.
Jennifer Lawrence was all over these, and opted for red for herself.
When something really starts catching on, then there’s bound to be knock-offs. Amazon has a really good replica for only $11. (Click here for the link.) Can you tell the difference?
So the question is…what do you think of this style? Is it just a flash-in-the-pan trend, or do you think it’s a classic in the making? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter!

I think it’s a fad, not a classic.
I think they will “hang” on for quite some time as all the variations will appear. I actually think they’re cool. Wonder if they have to be heavy to hang in the back?
Classic in the making! I love the full round design, the back is as elegant as the front. The larger pearl in the back is rather sexy like a kiss behind the ear.
Love that “kiss behind the ear” comment, Gina!
I like the look and not sure it will be around for the long haul. As for my taste I’m not sure I like the one ear look, I would wear both.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see, right, Melodee? 😉
