Make Me a Mismatch
Perfect matches in jewelry are so overrated. With today’s must-be-unique mindset—especially among millennials—collectors are encouraged to celebrate individual style, and mismatched earring sets are one way to do so. Stores can offer single earring studs or purposely pair oddball mates; just be prepared to do a little explaining to those unfamiliar with the idea.
