If you can figure out what those two earpin designs are, then hats off you to you. Recently, I have purchased two earpins via etsy from a seller in the Phillipines, named Arajera. The price of the earrings (as a pair) were $186.24HKD, which I believe is more than reasonable for such unique pieces of jewelry. Unfortunately, I don’t know if this is the case with all earpins or just these (perhaps it is because of the size) but they really warp you ears when you try to align them to the actual shape of your ear. Still, I am more than happy to work with them since they are a great conversation piece and adds an element of quirkiness to an outfit.As for the purchasing experience, Ara was fantastic with communicating back and forth with me and setting up a custom order (since I had a very specific order in mind). I received the earrings in about 3-4 weeks, which is not the quickest but definitely was worth the wait; the package also came with a really cute note that taught you how to keep the earpins in tip top conditions which was an excellent touch. Would definitely recommendthis seller for other pieces of jewelry as well for her creative work and great business attitude.
