We’ve all been there, settling in for a quick snooze when one turn of your head reveals you’ve forgotten to take your earrings out. Ouch! Being stabbed by a pokey post isn’t fun, and waking up to earrings lost somewhere in your bed isn’t either. That’s where nap earrings come in handy.
Most nap earrings are on the smaller side, whether studs, huggies or small hoops. They also feature flat or screw-on backings which won’t jab you. If you prefer to wear the same minimalist earrings day after day—perhaps letting other pieces of jewelry, like an eye-catching cocktail ring or necklace nab the attention instead—you’ll want to stock your jewelry organizer with a few pairs of affordable sleeper earrings.
Read on for 9 pairs of nap earrings that are just as stylish as they are comfortable to sleep in.
Gorjana Rose Huggies
Hoops aren’t known to be the most comfortable earrings to wear all day since they can hang heavy and get caught in your hair. That’s where trendy huggies—the petite hoops that, well, hug your lobes—come in. This pair of 18k gold-plated brass huggies from Gorjana are elegant-as-can-be, and since they have a hinge post closure, you can rest easy on these nap earrings—no poking, and no frustrated exclamations of “I lost an earring!” in the morning.
Mint & Lily Little Bar Sleeper Earrings
Whether you have one pair of ear piercings or several, dainty bar earrings are a must for every jewelry case. This minimalist pair was designed with all-day and all-night comfort in mind, with flat backs that won’t jab even side sleepers. These go-with-everything nap earrings are available in gold, rose gold and silver. At this price, we wouldn’t blame you if you indulged in a pair of each.
Maison Miru Evil Eye Nap Earrings
This pair of evil eye nap earrings not only encourages good vibes, but good sleep, too. They feature flat backs and high-quality titanium that’s comfortable for even the most sensitive ears. They’re pretty and poke-free—an ideal combination.
Hello Adorn Tiny Twist Earrings
These nap earrings from Hello Adorn could easily make any “best earrings” list. Their twisted design not only stays perfectly in place through all sorts of snoozes, but they give you the illusion of double piercings, even if you only rock one. (Shh, no one has to know!) They’re handmade in Wisconsin, available in three finishes and the price is nearly unbeatable, too.
Made by Mary CZ Bezel Earrings
Name any activity—sleeping, swimming or sweating, for starters—and these oh-so-beautiful gold CZ studs could tag along. With a shorter post length and a screw-on ball-style backing, they stay perfectly in place no matter how much (or how little) activity you’re doing. They’re comfortable and classic. Win/win!
Mint & Lily Opal Trio Sleeper Earrings
Whether you prefer gold or silver jewelry, here’s betting you’ll reach for these petite nap earrings day after day. (That is, if you ever take them out.) The trio of tiny opals is available on both gold and silver posts, which feature a flat-back design for ultimate comfort.
Small Sleeper Hoops Earrings
Got a trip coming up? Streamline what you pack in your travel jewelry case by nabbing this set of three sleeper hoop earrings. They’re a classic design that pairs easily with any outfit, and at this price (under $6!) if you do lose a pair in your hotel room, you won’t be heartbroken.
14K Gold Plated Triple Huggie Illusion Stud Earrings
Remember: There’s no need to get a second piercing (if you don’t already have one) and no need to sleep on pokey earrings. Instead, add these affordable illusion huggies to your Amazon cart. They’re lightweight and feature rounded backs, so you can dress up any outfit and then crash come the end of the night without even taking them out.
Made by Mary Live In Hoop Earrings
The name of these hoops—the Live In Hoop Earrings—says it all. You truly can live in these ultra-lightweight and versatile hoops, which come in six sizes and three finishes. Put them in, then leave them in for, well, as long as you’d like. Plus, they’re a total steal, too!
