Catriona Gray’s accessory of choice—a Tessera ear cuff inspired by the Philippine flag’s three stars and a sun—has been the talk of everyone since Binibining Pilipinas. As we mentioned, it’s like a lucky charm for the beauty queen. She even wore another version of the ear cuff when she won Miss Universe.

Here's what you've all been waiting for. Introducing, ALAB AT DANGAL patriotic earcuff by CATRIONA GRAY for TESSERA JEWELRY. Made of gold, studded with diamonds and rubies with golden south sea pearls. The pride of every Filipino. Congratulations to our Tessera Queen X Miss Philippines X Miss Universe 👑 @catriona_gray 💎 . . . Stay tuned for more announcements!
You just know that this earring style is going to be big—not necessarily in the same design as the one Catriona wore. But we expect more people to wear ear cuffs (or ear crawlers, which are usually subtler), especially since both styles are for people with pierced and non-pierced lobes.
Whether you’re into over-the-top designs or more low-key pieces, we listed down some options you can cop.
Arajera Green Agate Ear Cuff
This ear cuff is so tiny that people might miss it if they don’t look closely, which is good if you’re not into flashy jewelry. Arajera’s piece has a single green agate stone in the middle of the sterling silver ring. It’s adjustable and can be placed on the ear’s cartilage. Available online.
Hey Sweety Sweety Ear Cuff
If you’re looking for a simple crawler-type cuff, opt for Hey Sweety’s leaf-shaped one. It has a hook for fuss-free attachment and it’ll look like you have silver foliage decorating your ear. Available on Zalora PH.
RAM Valentina Ear Crawler
Let’s get a little fancy now. The Valentina is sterling silver in rose gold plating and has clear cubic zirconia stones. It’s also shaped like an arrow and you can choose to place it upward or downward. This can also be used to measure your mood for the day if you want. Available at The Podium.
Rosegal Gothic Style Dragon Shape Ear Cuff
This dragon-shaped piece is giving us serious Targaryen vibes. It’s a single ear cuff with the dragon sitting on top of your ear, so this can be your next statement piece for any outfit. Available online.
Angostura Magnolia Ear Cuff
We’re now in “ear cuff taking over the whole ear” territory starting with this Angostura piece. It’s made multiple gold loops that attach to the cartilage and lobe. It also has a rustic feel to it with its faded look. Available on Farfetch.
Ellery Gold-Tone Faux Pearl Ear Cuff
The sculptural design of Ellery’s ear cuff outlines the shape of the ear with gold-toned material and decorated with faux pearls. Available on Net-a-Porter.
