How to style your earrings
The real beauty of earrings is their versatility. You can choose to wear yours in a more subtle and understated way or go bold and eye-catching, depending on the styles you like.
Earrings come in all shapes and sizes, from dainty studs and huggie hoops to statement hoop earrings and drop styles. If you’re looking to expand your earring collection or want to switch up how to wear your favourite styles then you’ve come to the right place. In this guide we’ll take a look at different earring styles and how you can wear them to reflect who you are.
Hoops are one of the most popular types of earring for a reason. Available in a wide selection of sizes and styles, you can choose pieces that show your personality, from small and classic to big, bold and covered in gems.
Small hoops are so versatile and work with any outfit and jewellery pairing. Since they're on the smaller side, you can wear them next to a statement necklace without overcrowding your look. Big hoop earrings are having a moment right now that’s showing no signs of stopping. Style yours as an easy way to add drama to your look – whether that’s paired with the iconic jeans-and-a-t-shirt ensemble or to enhance your best date night outfit.DISCOVER
Huggie hoop earrings
Huggie hoops are little hoop earrings that sit very close to your ear lobe – as the name suggests. Unlike sleeper earrings, which are small, thin hoops that are easy to sleep in and are often worn in newly pierced ears, huggies are typically thicker and feature hinged clasps that click shut. They come in lots of inspiring styles, from plain metal finish designs to earrings adorned with gemstones. Huggie hoops look sophisticated worn alone or work well stacked alongside other earrings.
Studs are a staple in every jewellery box and they’re probably the most popular type of earring, thanks to how versatile they are. From simple gold and silver studs and gemstone designs to hearts, flowers and a whole host of other statement shapes, you can stack up your earring selection in a way that’s personal to you.
Simple stud earrings are just the thing to take you from desk to day out, you can mix and match them, stack them and experiment with them however you want to.DISCOVER
Looking to add a little touch of elegance to your jewellery box? Drop earrings are your best friend. They can attach in the same way as a hoop or a stud, or with a lever or hook clasp, and they usually feature a gemstone, a bead or a charm that hangs just below your ear. They add instant sophistication to a look, so they’re perfect for special occasions, but they work just as well with a casual outfit. Wear your drop earrings as statement pieces on their own so they can really stand out.DISCOVER
Mix and match earrings
Stacking earrings is a great way to show off a selection of your favourites all at once. Try putting together your favourite pairs: mix and match your hoops, huggies and stud earrings for a unique, statement look. The trick is to start with the biggest earrings closest to your face, then get smaller as you move up your ear. Stick to the same metal if you want to keep things classic, or mix your metal finishes to make an even bolder statement.
From subtle studs to decorative drop earrings, our earrings are carefully shaped from high quality metals using a mix of traditional jewellery making techniques and modern innovations.
