Curate your ears

One of the strongest trends in jewellery for some time has been statement jewellery for ears. This has included bold departures from conventional earrings. In particular, multiple piercings have become prolific, and this has inevitably led to a change in how and where earrings are worn.

This has evolved to “curating” ears with a variety of non-matching earrings, sometimes in varying colours of gold, which can be chic and funky and translates easily into both corporate and social settings.

If you like the look, but don’t fancy committing to several piercings, there are options, like this ear cuff which gives the illusion of having a piercing by positioning it towards the outer cartilage of the ear- with no piercing required.

Continuing the theme of minimising actual piercings to create a multi-pierced look, this white gold and diamond double hoop earring creates the illusion of a double piercing, but in reality only requires a single piercing.

Non matching earrings are particularly fun. You can achieve this look by sourcing earrings already paired with a common theme, like the 14ct yellow gold and diamond “Kiss Me Hug Me” earrings featured below, or share two pairs of earrings with a friend- and swap one of each.

Some earrings are created solely to emphasise differences, and the striking mandarin garnet and lagoon tourmaline harlequin earrings are a stunning example of this concept.

Ear crawlers create maximum impact with minimum effort. This eye catching organic design makes full use of the shape of the ear lobe to draw attention and accentuate form. They are an elegant, contemporary and chic way to draw attention to your lobes, and come in a variety of different designs including organic motifs, geometric and celestial symbols. The design typically graduates from large to small as it tapers up the lobe.
