The modern way to wear jewellery is all about layers. The way that you pair different jewellery pieces together can help you create a unique, individual look that expresses your personal style.
With the ‘curated ear’ becoming more and more popular, you might be feeling inspired to try this layered look for yourself. While the stacked, multiple-earring look is certainly on-trend, you can customise your stack to make it your own, lending a timelessness to your style.
If you’re new to the trend, discover our guide to the key earring styles you need and our top ways to stack them – whether you have two ear-piercings or many.
What are the essential earring types?
First things first, what are the key styles you should have in your earring wardrobe?
Hoop earrings are a must-have in every jewellery collection. Versatile and timeless, you can find the perfect hoop to suit your style and the occasion, in terms of size, width, metal colour, and design. If you’re just building out your collection, you can’t go wrong with a simple, fine hoop style in your favourite precious metal.
Studs are a must-have earring style. Ranging from dainty, simple or symbolic designs to statement pieces, studs are just as easy to wear alone, stacked up, or paired with your hoops. Mix up your earring collection with minimalist studs, symbolic shapes, and classic diamond solitaire styles.
3. Personalised and statement styles
Whether for special occasions, or just for when you feel like changing up your look, add some unique designs, symbolic pieces, and diamond, pearl, or gemstone-adorned earrings to your collection. You might choose your birthstone, or a symbol that has meaning to you, for a personalised touch.
How to Create an Earring Stack?
Once you have your essential earring collection sorted, it’s time to experiment with stacking them up. Create your curated ear look with our top three styling tips below:
Look 1: Hoops
For a classic yet trending look, stack two pairs of hoop earrings. Some simple guidelines to remember are: begin with your largest hoop in your lowest piercing and scale down as you move up your ear; and stick to the same metal colour but mix your textures.
Look 2: Hoops and Studs
Create a subtle take on the trending multiple-earring look by pairing a hoop and a stud earring. The same rules of thumb apply as when styling two hoops: keep it polished and effortless by sticking to the same metal setting. You could pair your hoop with a simple stud in the same precious metal; or for the ultimate luxe, timeless look, pair your hoops with diamond solitaire studs.
Look 3: Diamond Stack
What to style with diamond earrings? More diamonds! These precious gems are the perfect match for each other, so it’s easy to pair up a luxe, polished look with just about any styles of diamond earrings. Add some texture to your brilliant ear look by styling solitaire (single diamond) styles with pavé or multi-stone pieces.
