Tangled earphones are so 2020. If you’re still rummaging through the depths of your pockets and bag, and have yet to get hooked onto wireless earphones – it’s time for a serious update. And following the launch of Apple’s first-generation AirPods in 2016, both fashion and tech brands have come up with their own line of stylish accessories and cases to store your wireless earphones – but is that really enough?
This is where AirPods jewellery come in. Yes, it’s a thing, and it’s actually not as silly as it may sound. Fashion brands and jewellers came up with earphones or AirPod jewellery as a way to not only add a dash of glamour to your everyday look – but also in some designs – to prevent the earbuds from falling off.
And it didn’t take long for brands to milk this opportunity, like when Louis Vuitton launched its Nanogram Earphone Earrings back in early 2020, featuring charms of the brand’s Monogram Flower and LV Circle symbols.
Then there’s Mumbai-based label MISHO, who unveiled its own unique sculptural earrings affectionately called “Pods”, which are specially designed to act as little supports to hold your AirPods in place, and catching them if they do accidentally slip out. MISHO’s Pro Pods are even convertible, where you can twist them down to attach on your favourite charms if you’re not using your earphones.
With that said, if you’re keen on levelling up your style game while being able to plug into your favourite tunes, here are some brands to look out for.
