Italian translation:Orecchini a veretta con perno
Explanation:
Huggie earrings refer to earrings made up of small hoops that fit closely around the ear lobes, but are a bit thicker than most standard hoops. It is the thickness of these kinds of earrings that makes them look as though the earrings are "hugging" the ear lobe when they are being worn. In some cases, these earrings are referred to as ear hugger earrings. This term is also used sometimes to describe a kind of earring that is shaped like an abstract human body that is designed to fit around one of the upper exterior folds of the ear so that it looks as though the figure is climbing up the ear. These kinds of earrings can be made out of many different kinds of metals and may be embellished with embedded stones.
