You've heard all about layering necklaces and stacking rings, but have you heard of curated ears? No? Then let's have an earring-party!
A curated ear features earrings that complement each other-- similar to stacking rings-- these are stacking earrings. 😘
If you have more than one hole piercing in an ear, then you can curate a bejeweled ear.
I have a few piercings in my ears now, including my helix on my left ear. I love being able to layer a few different earrings together to create a unique look!
Here's a great graphic showing you which parts of the ear can be pierced and what they are called.
Step 1: Choose Different Styles
In my helix, I like to wear ear climbers, like this one that I designed for Silpada using Sunstones. I wear it so that the larger side is at the top and graduates down.
I love how these all go together but aren't matchy-matchy, you know?
I sell a lot of my studs singly as well as in pairs, so that you can wear them as stackable earrings. They all work together because they have my signature Metalicious look.
I like lots of options when putting on my jewelry.
Step 2: Mix Your Metals
When I want to keep it simple and minimalist, I like to pair my mini infinity studs with my curl studs for everyday. To dress it up, I pair rose gold moissanite studs with elegant morganite cushion drop earrings.
Step 3: Mix The Sizes
Then to add a bit of colorful bling, I like to add a pair of 3mm birthstone studs from the wrought collections (which are also available in 2mm and 5mm). Here you can see the different sizes together to give you an idea:
Step 4: Mix in Color Gemstone Studs
I also love adding in these modern faceted gemstone studs for more color. Each one is faceted to look like a gemstone but features a genuine colorful gemstone in the center:
You can also mix and match metals, for example, my 2mm wrought studs are available in 14k yellow gold with an emerald - and if you don't see a stone with the metal you like, just let us know! We can make any of our earrings in 14k white gold, 14k yellow gold, 14k rose gold or sterling silver.
Do you have multiple ear piercings? How do you like to curate them?
I also love the versatility of ear threaders, they look great in one hole and you can wear them at any length, but did you know, you can also thread the chain through multiple holes as demonstrated in this short video.
Hopefully this has given you some ideas for how to wear your earrings thoughtfully, to make a beautiful curated ear!
