First of all, we gotta say, skulls are definitely in. Why? Because they're rock. And is rock ever out? No. So therefore, skulls aren't going anywhere. Certain skull accessories might become trendy and then not (looking at you, Thomas Wylde scarf). So, that's not to say that you need to appoint yourself in head-to-toe skulls (again, we're really not sure about the Thomas Wylde tunics either!), but a smartly placed skull accessory almost always gives an oufit an unexpected edge. We've seen a TON of your garden variety silver/metal skull earrings, so we MAJORLY psyched to discover these fun and unsual coral and gold skull earrings by Iosselliani. We were not psyched, however, to discover their price: $1,092. That's dollars AMERICAN. Wahhht? We quickly went on a quest, "SkullQuest," if you will, to find unusual skull earrings that are way below the price of a semester's worth of books at most universities. Here's what we found:
