Don’t Match Your Earrings

Forget symmetry — it’s time to have some fun 


Fashion is embracing the quirky appeal of perfectly unsymmetrical earrings, from dramatic pairings such as the ear-cuff-and-stud combination, to a more discreet variant of using contrasting jewels.

Dior Joaillerie, in particular, has an extensive range of mismatched earrings right now - not surprising as designer Victoire de Castellane  often “plays” with rare stones as if they were costume jewellery.

There are also modern, versatile duos that can be part of your daily jewellery rotation. Chaumet’s spider-and-bee earring set, for one, would work with the strictest of office dress codes. We think it might be a particularly fun, little act of defiance that’s barely noticeable because of its petite size.
