Creating the perfect ear stack can be hard: finding the right style, size and quality jewellery that looks great together takes a certain eye and a lot of research. Multiple ear piercings look great when styled well, but it can be hard to select complementary pieces that balance and work with any outfit. Read on to find out how to build a chic gold earring stack for effortless everyday style.
Mixing and Matching
The key to creating a stylish gold earring stack is to mix and match different styles and sizes of earrings. Start by selecting a pair of statement earrings, such as large hoops, and then add smaller studs or huggies for a layered effect. You can also mix plain earrings with detailed gold designs or gems for dimension.
To avoid a cluttered ear stack, stick to minimal styles with a statement pop. For example, balance larger plain hoop earrings with smaller detailed twist hoop earrings or huggies. Or stick to the same gemstone colour, such as emerald huggies with a petite emerald stud.
Playing with Placement
Another way to create a unique and eye-catching gold earring stack is to play with the placement of the earrings. Instead of wearing all of the earrings in the same ear, you can mix and match them between both ears. For example, you can wear a statement earring in one ear and a small stud in the other ear for a fun and asymmetrical look.
You can also experiment with the placement of the earrings on your ear. Instead of wearing the earrings in the traditional earlobe piercing, try wearing a hoop or huggie in your second or third piercing, or even in your cartilage piercing. This will create a more dynamic and interesting earring stack. I personally love seeing a larger hoop in the second piercing with a smaller hoop in the first.
Make it Meaningful
The perfect everyday ear stack is one that you don't need to change. It works with every outfit, from a Zoom call in your PJs, to a classic white tee and jeans, to a boujee dinner & drinks with the girls, and even passes for a special occasion such as wedding guest. It's simple enough to not feel overdressed for casual looks, but so chic that you wouldn't feel sad if you forgot to swap your earrings for an event.
The Goldilocks of ear stacks works with meaningful pieces and high quality materials that you wouldn't dream of swapping. Birthstone and zodiac charms and earrings are the perfect addition to a meaningful ear stack, and when paired with high quality gold filled metals, you don't have to remove your jewellery to swim or shower.
Keeping it Simple
While mixing and matching and playing with placement can create an interesting and unique gold earring stack, it's also important to keep it simple. Don't overdo it with too many earrings or styles, as this can create a cluttered and chaotic look. Instead, choose a few key pieces that complement each other and your outfit, and keep the rest of your jewellery minimal.
When it comes to styling a gold earring stack, less is often more. If you're wearing a bold and statement-making pair of earrings, keep the rest of your earrings simple and understated. This will prevent your earrings from competing with each other and create a more cohesive and polished look.
A classic, minimal ear stack can be easily reworked for a special event by swapping out the first earring for a statement piece. Pictured: Fleur Pearl Earrings, October Opal Birthstone Studs, petite Dome Hoops.
