Although many women have pierced ears, there are still large portions of the population that either don’t have their ears pierced or for some other reason cannot wear pierces. Years ago clip-on earrings were highly fashionable yet lost their prominence in favor of pierced earrings. However, this year clip-on earrings are trending once again and there are a number of designs that top the charts. Pearl clip earrings are among the most fashionable, both in natural and cultivated or simulated pearls.

Monet is a jewelry design house that offers a line somewhere between costume and fine jewelry. For many years they have provided cutting edge designs and have long been a favorite of women seeking a designer appeal at a reasonable price.
