There seem to be more clip-ons available now than there have been for some time, perhaps due to the move towards really, really BIG earrings, which tend to drag down pierced lobes. If you’re looking for something simple you might be harder pressed, but Peter Lang (peterlang.com.au) and Kenneth Jay Lane both have selections that won’t graze your shoulders or hit your wallet. For more fashionforward and decorative styles, look to Mercedes Salazar, Proenza Schouler (net-a-porter.com), Marni, Roxanne Assoulin (modaoperandi. com) and Etro (pictured, $303, matchesfashion.com). The other option is vintage: Sydney’s Harlequin Market (harlequinmarket. com) has a large range including chunky gold 1980s styles, 1950s crystal, and a variety from labels including Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Lea Stein and DKNY.
