An Indian Jewellery Designer Creates Earrings That Keep AirPods In Place. A Fashion Invention We Didn’t Know We Needed.
Some of the biggest fashion breakthroughs that have sprouted through the years have left our mind boggled. Think skorts (skirts + shorts that finally let girls sit cross-legged or spread open, their call) or the no-show ankle socks that let your feet look socksless without actually ditching on them. And now we have earrings to keep airpods in place. Most styles are either a result of functionality gap reported by fashion buffs or simply a brainchild of someone who got sick of basic, existing options and their struggle drove them to come up with a revolutionary invention like these.
One of the latest fashion inventions that’s probably the outcome of both, is pebble pods aka earrings that hold your AirPods in place. Let me elaborate. Imagine you are travelling in a metro or a local train (I know you can’t right now that’s why I said imagine) and you are listening to music, you know minding your own business, picturing yourself in the music video of the song you are listening to, throwing some suave moves. Someone nudges you and there, your wireless earphones slide off. Frustrating, right? Enter, Pebble pods!
AirPods just don’t stay put and that’s probably what happened with the jewellery designer Suhani Parekh which propelled her to create an earrings designed to hold those keep AirPods in place. Her Pebble pods collection is inspired by their best-selling pebble rings and features three cool earring designs ranging from sculpturally artistic ones to minimal, super cute ones. While the pebble pods are more aesthetic and apt for a glam look, their active wear earrings are more discrete with minimal design that you can wear to gym. Plus, you can wear them even when you want to leave your pods home. And, you’d want to since they look so cool off-duty as well.

You wear them like your usual earrings and slide in your AirPods so they clip on to it and fix them in the design. Not only they keep your wireless earphones from falling off but also catch them if they slip out. The best thing? You don’t need to remove the earrings when you are done jamming to music. Simply remove the pods and wear the earrings as is. These pod clippers make for stunning earrings even when they aren’t doubling up as clutchers to the device and look equally gorge without ‘em.
The launch post on the brand’s Instagram page read, “These little sculptural beauties not only look on point, they act like little supports, they hold your AirPods in place, catch them if they slip out and look super with or without the AirPods on! Designed so you can effortlessly slip your AirPods in and out of these earrings through the day, you’ll never want to wear your AirPods without them!”
Suhani Parekh is a known name in the fashion industry and the pieces from her London based jewellery brand MISHO Designs have been spotted on the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Kiara Advani, Kendal Jenner and Rihanna. So for her to make something fun to keep airpods in place is just her aesthetic that combines fun with functionality. The designs of pebble pods are contemporary and chic just like their other collections and perfect for fashion minimalist and maximalists alike. All three earrings are created in a beautiful golden so you can pair them with literally any look. Not too fancy, not to blingy, these earrings are subtly stylish, thanks to its modern design. For those who want to show off their everyday listening device and oh, stop them from sliding off out of the blue, this deserves a place in your jewellery drawer.
These earrings are one of its kinds in the history of fashion inventions and truly a smart one. It combines fashion with function and repurposes a style statement into a utility object. The struggle of your AirPods falling out of the ears is real and this whole concept just puts it in position, quite literally. And it’s such a smart way to keep the airpods in place.
This is so genius! I never knew I needed a chic pair of earrings to hold on to my AirPods, but here we are. Although, it would be nice if there was something like this for the guys too. Kinda feel bad for them. They still have to hold, catch and put their AirPods on themselves. But on second thought, uh who cares. BRB, adding to cart!
