Much as I loves me some big-ass hoops, every so often I'm struck by the desire to wear earrings that are a little less obtrusive. A little less obvious. A little less in your face, if you will. Enter Aesa Machine de Terre studs. Hand-carved out of sterling silver or 14k gold, these artfully crafted gems resemble tiny little rocks or herkimer diamonds and are available with or without a single actual white or black 1pt diamond in the center of one earring. Best of all? Aesa jewelry is made by designer Randi Mates right in the heart of Brooklyn. Rock on!
