Alli Webb is no stranger to innovation. The entrepreneur founded Drybar, which started as a salon for blowouts and has since launched a variety of styling tools and haircare products. Now, she’s turning her attention to jewelry, partnering with Maya Brenner on a line of earrings designed with both style and comfort in mind.

The capsule collection of single earrings includes studs, huggie hoops, and dangling chains made of 14K gold with turquoise, opal, and onyx stone embellishments. At first glance, they look like ordinary earrings, but the studs have a special feature that makes them so much more comfortable than standard earrings.

Rather than using a typical backing that slides over the post, these earrings have a corkscrew design that allows them to stay secure in your ear without a separate piece. Webb and Brenner came up with the idea after growing tired of removing all of their earrings before bed. The result is a stylish, minimalist earring that won’t bother you in your sleep like others can.

For anyone who typically wears multiple earrings (and especially the same ones day after day), the idea of a more comfortable option you can leave in overnight is game-changing. And not only do the earrings offer real-world functionality, but they also look gorgeous. They’re delicate and understated, which is exactly what you need to create a layered look for multiple piercings.


The collection of comfortable earrings is available at Nordstrom, and prices range from $104 to $250. Take a look at the new styles below.
