The curated ear is something of a fashion movement, with multiple delicate piercings peeping out from behind the hair. In reflection of this mis-matching trend brands are now offering single stud options to build your own style.
Sophie Quy, buyer of fine jewellery at NET-A-PORTER says 'Pioneered by designers like Maria Tash, Anita Ko, and Yvonne Léon, there's no doubting that piercing is huge. This trend has led us to see a lot more single earrings, and earrings that can be worn alone or in multiples to create a beautiful delicate curated assortment in and around the ear. Our customers have been loving Maria Tash's single pave hoops in diamond or turquoise which look incredible in the ear.'
When tiny-earring pioneer Maria Tash opened her pop-up piercing studio in Liberty this February it was overrun with celebrities and fashion insiders within minutes. Her iconic and coveted tiny jewellery is now available all over the world;
'I find that women are looking for a deliberate, thoughtful collection of small pieces in each ear, a fine curation of elegant, multiple piercings. Very tiny diamond studs and tiny diamond rings in unusual parts of the ear which creates an unexpected tiny flash of light in hidden areas of the ear. The vast majority of our earrings can be purchased individually, and are specially designed for long-term wear.'More
