If you like it, then you shoulda put earrings on it -- at least that's what Beyonce did with a brand new pair of Barack Obama hoops last weekend ... and now, TMZ has learned, sales for the pro-bama jewelry have EXPLODED.

The earrings were designed by a Puerto Rican jewelry designer named Erika Peña -- and up until last week, she had only sold 5 sets of the handmade earrings.

But her fortune changed overnight when Beyonce wore them last Saturday in NYC. Since then, Erika tells TMZ, she's sold over 1,300 PAIRS!

Erika tells us she received orders almost immediately from all over the world -- England, Switzerland, Chile, and Argentina ... with her biggest order coming from London.

The earrings currently sell for $32 a pair -- so if our math is correct ... that's like, a ton of money.

to most of the country BAMA IS ALABAMA!
you know....Crimson Tide..................roll tide!!
only on Beyonce, close to an election, would Bama be interpreted as Obama
and if the earrings were supposed to represent Obama- then maybe the University of Alabama or the state itself should sue for copyright infringement!

Cheap, pieces of ugly crap. Those giant hoop earrings are tacky at best anyway. I'm also pretty sure, Be*yawn*ce wouldn't be caught dead in the $32.00 version either.

It's pretty stupid thinking earrings would win an election. Just because you are a fan of someone does not mean you have to vote for who they do. People are so blinded by celebrities and Obama.

MLK's dream was "content of character" and not color of skin.
That works both ways.
Beyonce and JayZ are racists.
They have no idea why Obama should win re-election.

Well, my co*k ring is shaped like an O as well. You don't see me out wearing it around even though it reminds me of our pres. You know, fur*ing us.

Just like Obama the earrings look like gold but are fake.
.
Hopefully votes for Obama have exploded like sales of these gaudy earrings. I'd be thrilled if he ends up with 1,300 of the overall votes.
.
Like Beyonce, Obama is a douche.

How many stupid people are there with money to waste on this junk, especially just because a "celebrity" wore them. Sheep
