Avant-garde ear adornments, championed by brands like Repossi and Kim Mee Hye, continue to trend, as designers imagine new ways to sport jewels.

National Jeweler’s Piece of the Week, the thread ear pin pictured above by brand Kat Kim, is just such a creative invention. It hooks around the ear and is anchored by insertion in a lobe piercing.

This ombre version features pink sapphires and rubies set in 18-karat rose gold. It retails for $1,140.
