I have a confession to make: I’m somewhat of a jewelry hoarder. I’ve been collecting everything from vintage cocktail rings to Italian chains for the past decade, but I’m particularly proud of my earring collection—and, trust, there’s truly no earring trend I don’t partake in. While I love a good statement piece from time to time, I’m more drawn to minimalist styles that can be stacked and layered without overwhelming my ear (I do have a total of 11 piercings, after all). And right now? I can’t get enough of my sleek and simple threader earrings.

From dainty, bejeweled chains to more sculptural shapes in silver and gold, these delicate styles can be effortlessly threaded through pierced ears and styled into any look, whether that look involves a T-shirt and jeans or a party dress. Of course, I’m not the only one who’s a big fan—they’ve been gracing celebrity red carpets and the feeds of style insiders for some time now. I'm calling it: They’re the easy jewelry trend that’s about to take over.

Ahead, I rounded up the 21 best threader earrings I’m currently obsessing over (with plenty of super affordable picks, to boot). Keep scrolling to check them out for yourself—and never stress over a missing earring back again.
