Ear suspenders created by Los Angeles based handmade jewelry designers Sara Smith and Mara Rothbart, of Smith+Mara have been trending among young celebrities like Gigi Hadid recently.  This simple style is novel as it is a cross between a stud earrings and an ear cuff!

The ear suspender is really a hooked bar which hangs from the anti-tragus (yes, there is a name for that part of the ear!). The lower part is basically like the post of stud earrings.  The ear suspender stays in place because of both.

The contemporary simplicity clearly appeals as do Smith+Mara's skimmers which are more commonly known as ear pins.  Shown below are more examples from Smith+Mara's Instagram. (If you cannot see the pictures, click here).

 A couple of fast moving Etsy artisans have already come up with their own wire versions.

What do you think?  Do you love the style?
