Stacked earrings are the latest jewellery to shift gears from 'less is more' to 'more is more'. It's now about the art of curating a range of earring styles all at once. The jewellery stacking trend has definitely arrived in the earring and ear cuff world. And it's here to stay.

So how do you navigate the new trend and organise an ear party that ticks all the boxes - style, affordability and trend?

Gone are the days when a pair of classic earrings is the ticket. Classic earrings certainly still have their place from everyday wear, to work wear and formal events. But the stronger trend now is for different earring types in different parts of the ear, mixed and matched in a way that reflects your individual style, whether you like gold earrings for women or diamond earrings for women. And here's how to achieve it.

Asymmetric stacked earrings

Up the ante with asymmetric earrings. Mix up your studs in themes - a star in one ear and a moon in the other, a heart in one and a kiss in the other. Or a longer length earring worn with a shorter version. A matching pair of earrings is no longer required.

In fact, un-matching is better in many cases. It shows a boldness to curate your own earring collection. It shows individuality. It goes against the flow and gives you a unique and individual look.

We love these new Swarovski Lifelong Heart asymmetric drop earrings to really make a statement, with  interlocking hoops and a mixed metal finish. This design gives multiple styling possibilities to take your everyday look to high fashion glam.

Sparkling stacked earrings

You can't have too much sparkle. Diamond stud earrings in different designs have been popularised by the iconic @mariatash. Indulge in diamonds or opt for more affordable Swarovski crystal earrings or white zirconia, both of which exude a stunning and luxurious sparkle.

Try Sif Jakobs jewellery for maximum sparkle in luxurious but affordable designs. These Piccolo Lungo earrings with pink zirconia provide gorgeous sparkle with on-trend chain extensions.

Different styles and textures also work well for stacked earrings. Mix some sparkle with plain earrings for variation.

Multiple earrings

It's time to get another ear piercing. There, we said it! Multiple ear piercings are now the norm rather than the exception. And don't use age as an excuse, it's irrelevant!

Texture mix in stacked earrings

Go for different textures when you stack your earrings. Sparkle, with twisted metal - or matte with shiny. You can also mix your metals, and include gold and silver or rose and silver.

Adorn your piercings with Ania Haie earrings, gorgeous studs and hoops that mix and match beautifully yet are so affordable. From the sparkle of the Glow range to the 'All Ears' collection of studs in rhodium, yellow or rose gold plating - there are so many gorgeous styles to choose from.

We also love the Ania Haie ear cuffs, which can be worn without a piercing. Get an edgy, on-trend look without an extra piecing, simply by adding an ear cuff or two. Ania Haie ear cuffs are perfect to wear with stacked earrings. They can be found with Ania Haie earrings online.

One of the best things about Ania Haie jewellery is that it is not only very stylish, but also extremely affordable. Dainty and gorgeous, always welcome as a gift.

Hoop stacked earrings

Hoop earrings have been popular for quite a few years and they are here to stay. Each year, new trends emerge for hoop earrings. Yet the fact remains, hoop earrings are still on trend. And what's more, you can also stack them.

Larger to smaller hoop earrings, you can mix and match them with studs, chain earrings and more. We love these Gold Luxe Hoop earrings by Ania Haie. Start with these and work your way up the ear with smaller hoops and different earring styles.

Stacked earring gifts

Earrings also make a wonderful gift. It's the type of jewellery you can never have too much of. It used to be a new pair of earrings for every day or every outfit. Now it's a new set of earrings!

And even better, earrings can be mixed, matched and stacked in different ways. So by giving earrings, you are actually giving a whole set of new looks, not just one pair of earrings. Genius!

Whether stud earrings for women, chain earrings, hoop earrings or something asymmetrical - earrings are always a welcome gift.
