Show off your opinion with Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dissent Collar Hoop and Charm Earrings.
In addition to being a trailblazing women's rights activist and Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a pop culture icon. Fans can pay homage to the legend with their own pair of "dissent collar" earrings representing her famous jabots—a frilly type of collar—she wears with her judge's robes. She and fellow justice Sandra Day O'Connor made the decision years ago to wear something that would set them apart from the tie-wearing men on the court, and the distinctive jabot has become a trademark for her.
The collars are actually more than just a way to feminize attire originally designed for men—RBG uses them to signal what her opinion will be on decision days. She wears a lace collar with gold trim when she decides with the majority opinion and a mirrored bib necklace on days when she dissents.
