1. Whole Ear Cuff and Diamonds
Instagram is an incredible source for style inspiration in the fine jewelry world. This is because most jewelry companies have mastered their stock photography, so earrings generally look crisp and vibrant on a bright white background. However, sometimes it’s hard to tell how they will look on your ear. Instagram stops stock photography in its tracks and gives you images of earring trends in action.
Jewelry designers and bloggers, both well-known and up-and-coming, take to the social network to highlight creative ways they style their jewelry. This is so important, because if you’re anything like me, you might quickly put on your earrings without looking and call it a day. This slideshow will introduce you to the growing hashtag trend in the industry: #eargame. So, how strong is your ear game?
Above: Jewelry blogger, Danielle, from Gem Gossip has a very influential ring stacking game, but her earring styling is just as strong as evidenced in this photo. Here she shows off a whole earring cuff from Jennie Kwon and a double row diamond ear cuff from PHYNE by Paige Novick.

2. Antique Georgian Statement Earrings
Having a good ear game isn’t all about stacking a ton of earrings. Sometimes all you need is a simple gold hoop and a priceless pair of antique Georgian diamond earrings from a friend. Here Angela from Gemstone Gypsy models earrings from the personal collection of @adrilakatos.

3. Triple Stacked Diamond Hoop Earrings
This shot from Ruby Stella makes it so tempting to get a third hole. I love how the black and white diamond hoops are alternating and identical to one another. Be sure to check out this company’s Instagram for many more awesome earring combinations.

4. Statement Dagger Ear Climber
Long thin earrings look good when worn vertically or when converted into an ear climber. In this photo, the dagger pointed up the ear creates an illusion of a third hole.

5. Triple Cuff Stack with Statement Dangle Earring
Jacquie Aiche is known for her innovative jewelry layering techniques, and this photo is a testament to that. Three cuff earrings stacked tightly together make this a unique, sharp earring look. I love how the stone in the middle cuff matches the dangle earring as if they were meant to be worn together. If you love wearing lots of jewelry, do not miss out on this Instagram feed!

6. Multi Earring Stud to Cuff Stack
Combining a bunch of simple earrings in the same metal is a great way to create a big impact for a small investment. You will see hoop earrings most commonly worn in the first hole, but don’t be afraid to mix it up and wear a stud in your first hole and a hoop in the second or third hole. With a look like this, both ears do not need to match exactly.

7. Minimal Earring with Inverted Cuff Earring
I am obsessed with the inverted cuff trend. Instead of curving around the bottom of the ear, the hoop goes in the opposite direction giving the illusion of a very unusual piercing on the interior of your ear. Pair an inverted cuff with a simple stud earring and your ear game will be flawless!
