The old emo standbys, Hot Topic and Spencer’s, have a few men’s styles, but the real motherlode is the Topman store in SoHo. The men’s jewelry section offers probably 40 or 50 different varieties, from dangling daggers to an Eiffel Tower and a neon pink star. So guys, whatever style you choose and whichever ear you decided to pierce or repierce, the message is clear: men’s earrings are back.

The New York Times has an article up on the subject you might find of interest.
