What Are Transformable Earrings And How To Wear Them

Get the look: Rose Gold & Amazonite Pendant Earrings

When preparing for a new jewellery investment, the go-to approach is to consider a well defined set of criteria for a well defined scenario: “works with my hair tied into a bun”, “can be worn at the office”, “won’t snag in my scarf”. And when all the checkboxes are ticked, the result is one piece you feel confident going forward with.

This holds true. It’s just that… there’s another way to go about this.

Mix-and-matching different jewellery lets you tick checkboxes off multiple lists, allowing you to successfully transition from one scenario to another. Transformable earrings, for example, have detachable parts that can be removed for a lighter, sleeker look, kept on for the complete, composed look, or even attached to other earrings for a full-on statement.

Read on to get the full scoop.

Can You Wear Two Different Earrings?

Yes, of course! The trend is at an all time high this year, so why not take advantage and experiment?

Wearing two different earrings can add an unexpected touch to your outfit. This is an easy way to spruce up even a minimalistic look without negating its essence.

One thing to remember is to keep your styling cues simple and clean: let either your clothes or your jewellery do the talking and you’ll always have a winning result.

How To Wear Mismatched Earrings

The key to making mismatched earrings work is to go for top quality materials. You wouldn't think it’s paramount… or even noticeable, but it is.


Well, because mismatched earrings signify a rebellious attitude: against others’ standards, against the classic rules of styling or towards life in general. But never against good taste.

So protest in style. Keep it chic, classy, fun. Elevate it. Even if you are only going for dainty studs, they can still make an impact if they are made from real gold and gemstones. Your statement can be as big or small as you want it to be.
