Where To Buy Belle's Ear Cuff From The 'Beauty & The Beast' Ballroom Scene, Because This Dainty Item Is A Must-Have
Beauty and the Beast is finally here. That means instead of just gawking over the gorgeous photos, there's now a bunch of other fashion and beauty items to be obsessed with too. Like Belle's gorgeous wrap-around earring. The dainty wire accessory might be small, but it's causing quite the stir in the fashion world. Where can you buy Belle's earring from the ballroom scene, you ask? It turns out you can recreate the look at every single price point.
There is tons of great fashion in Beauty and the Beast. From the iconic yellow ballgown to the statement rose, your fashion and jewelry options are pretty much endless. But one unexpected item that fans are obsessed with is Belle's ear wrap from the ballroom scene. It's easy to overlook the earring because it's subtle, but when you see it for the first time, it will be the only thing you notice from then forward.
The ear wrap is a branch-like wire that twists and turns from the bottom of Emma Watson's ear all the way to the top. She only wears one of them, but that's what makes the accessory so unique. Here's a closer look at the statement earring, so you can see what I mean.
It turns out that there was a very specific reason for the branch-like earring and necklace in the scene too. Jacqueline Durran, the Beauty and the Beast costume designer, told Hollywood Reporter that it was meant to signify Belle's relationship with the castle.
"The thought process behind [the branch necklace and ear climber] were that everything that is worn in the castle is created in the castle, so it has to sort of partake in the magic enchantment of the castle itself. It was trying to capture this organic sense of that and the way the castle moves and evolves," Durran said in the Hollywood Reporter interview. "In the production design, the stairs are twisted and in some places they're broken or still moving. We would be trying to mirror that sort of idea in these two pieces of jewelry."
While the exact replica of the jewelry item isn't for sale, there are ways to recreate the look. Ear wraps are nothing new to the fashion world, so you have plenty of options. From low-priced finds to the cream of the crop, here are all of your shopping options.
This option goes from the bottom to the top of the ear, just like Watson's.
