A targeted Google deep dive will show that Emma Watson‘s portrayal of Hermione Granger had the literary heroine going earring-less until the series’ sixth movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Of course, Watson has done an expert job at separating her burgeoning film career from her childhood franchise (This Is the End, anyone?)—partly through her now perfectly styled and quite grown-up red carpet appearances.
It was Watson’s single Mise en Dior pearl earring—worn only in her left lobe—at the 2014 Golden Globes back in January that prompted us to keep a close watch on the 24-year-old’s jewelry game. Throughout awards season and into the promotional tour for her new film Noah, she never ceased to impress us with the creativity and edginess of her cuff-heavy earring usage.
