I love being able to show how I would style the jewelry in natural light and every day clothes. Earrings are super difficult to snap in the studio. To be presentable enough to photograph means I have to have showered and done my hair and make up in some fashion, which is an added pressure. So, I thought I would take to the blog to go in depth a little more about styling in my new series Jane Styles.
I love mixing and matching earrings. I have 5 piercings on my left ear and 3 on my right. You would think I could wear all of my faves at once, but it's all a matter of balance. I pierced a few of my own holes in my youth, so the spacing isn't perfect either. Cest la vie. Work with what you have and choose earrings accordingly.
I have found that a balance of bars, studs, drops, etc works best for me.
fave drops: bar with half moon diamond drops + drop earrings
bars: triplicate + slate bar studs + tubes
diamond studs: any diamond studs add dimension to the stack. try to mix the shapes for balance and depth.
The art of stacking involves a mixture of the above styles. Here are a few examples of my fave combinations:
I love a drop mixed in for some impact.
Looking for a pop of color? These new citrine cocktail studs are a great neutral color while the spinel, sapphire, and tourmaline studs as well as these other new colored studs add more of a pop.
Have a single hole? No worries. We's got you covered too.
hoops + plate studs + NEW 5mm bezel set diamond studs + covey studs are all great everyday earrings.
antiparos studs offer more coverage, while still being sleek.
climbers give the illusion of more going on without committing to the multiple holes In your lobes.
Looking for a statement maker:
frond + triad + diamond disc + constellation studs
