Creating an earring look is so much more than just grabbing and going. If you’ve ever tried, you know there is almost an art to it, where balance is important and symmetry is everything. To make matters even more intense, everyone’s ears and earlobes are quite different and everyone’s hair styles are too. I’ve styled three different earring stories with my personal taste, factoring in what works for me (both my hair and number of holes I have in my lobes). Iconery has a fantastic selection of earrings, especially since each one is hot and covetable at the moment. The online haven of unique jewels just launched last year and has been on my radar. Their hashtag #KeepItReal says it all–“Because life’s too short to wear fake jewelry.” Finally someone who has read my mind and gets it!! This has been my mantra since I knew the difference between the two (I would say roughly 7th grade). Iconery is also changing the game by bringing 3D printing into the mix and adding pieces they’ve designed themselves to their website. You MUST check out their site because I assure you, you will discover pieces and designers you will LOVE! Besides, the two founders, Andrea Linett and Ivka Adam, are like a Who’s Who amongst cool girl-bosses.
There truly are so many different combinations one could create using Iconery‘s inventory. So sit back and have fun picking out your next new earring look that you’ll be wearing all the time!
The first look I’ve styled starts off with some points that I’ve learned and figured out about my personal style with earrings. The first being I love studs! Studs are extremely comfortable and since I have three holes, I can easily stack three smaller, less expensive earrings to create one big look. Another important tip is to try to create a theme–here I’ve used black diamonds as my theme. Another thing, which is probably most important and has been consistent throughout all my three looks, is to use a long or elongated earring in the first hole. With my face shape and hair style, this look has always stayed tried and true. I love the elongated look of the Elisabeth Bell Thorn earrings in 14k yellow gold. For the black diamond ensemble, I went with a simple line of black diamonds in the ear climber by Anne Sisteron paired with the Mara Carrizo Scalise diamond pave earrings.
My second earring look is an instant favorite! I just recently tried threader earrings for the first time and I’m completely obsessed. These gold horn and diamond threader earrings by Anne Sisteron are killer. So edgy from the get-go, the only way of making them any cooler than they are–adding a very small hoop stud, like these Luv AJ beaded hoop earrings. I’ve been on the hunt for a small pair of hoop studs after wearing a pair I stole from my mom’s jewelry box back in college that were costume jewelry that looked almost identical to these! I wore them everyday! And sometimes two is better than one, so in this case I stacked two of the same hoop earring side-by-side. Love this look.
My third earring stack infuses a trend that I’ve been incorporating more and more into my look–it basically takes one ear and loads it up, leaving the other ear bare. This is what I had in mind for this third look. To accentuate the ear that is loaded with earrings, I would pin up tightly one side of my hair to show off my earring look and leave the other half long, oftentimes covering up the bare lobe. I love the juxtaposition of the long, pointed dangle of the Brady Legler pencil drop earrings done in 14k gold and diamonds, and the diamond hardware stud earrings by Anne Sisteron. Again, I’ve gone with the long earring in the first hole and two studs in the others–edgy yet sophisticated.
