Wearing these earrings means never quite being alone. Two masked faces will dangle from the wearer's ears, one with a labret pierced through his lip and one with tattoos down her chin. Perhaps they'll whisper secrets or reminders.
Nevertheless, even should they remain entirely silent - they're awfully good-looking.
