This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I don't know about the townified versions, but apparently you can take out the accessorized versions and put the binned ones (the "BV Jewelry" zip) in the downloads and they show up fine. So I've uploaded that now. They require Bon Voyage, while the accessories version does not.

Inspired by unpolished-but-glazed turquoise earrings, I set about adding the latest item to my La Croix collection. After resizing my pictures and adding a light sandstone texture to them, I think they came out rather nice. The mesh is a very versatile one from LianaSims (called “adE” and is pretty much universal on the earrings page) that is not included, and the teardrop metal part comes from some earrings on Amazon.

I tried to upload a BV binned set, but for whatever reason, they weren't showing up in the catalogue whenever I binned them using Wardrobe Wrangler, so I have no idea what's going on there, since I've binned nearly every earring I've ever downloaded without any kind of issue. If I ever figure it out, I'll upload it, though, rest assured. <-- done. In the meantime, there are two sets that you can download: plain accessories, and a townified version (meaning any Sims the game generates after that point, including ageing, have a chance to be wearing them). They’re with the glasses.

They work for teen through elder, too, so your Sims will never have to grow out of them. Only female, though, unfortunately.

Thanks to dharden for the tip. I was unaware of that myself, to be honest.

They look quite nice.

It might be useful to note that the mesh's filename uses "Earrings03Adult", rather than "adE". I'd forgotten that, so I tried to download it and was told the zip file already existed.
