First came the ear cuff, then its slightly more conservative cousin, the ear jacket, and now we've turned our attention to the ear climber, which makes use of the earlobe's horizontal space by filling it with sparkly goodness. From matching sets to solo earrings and climber-and-stud combos, we've rounded up our favorite picks from local designers, indie boutiques, mega-chains, and department stores, starting at $4.
