Whether you take 2 pairs of earrings and you mix them up, or you decide to wear one of the pairs below, the possibilities are endless. Embrace their versatility and explore your style.
This pair of studs cannot be any more perfect. A heart shaped lock and a key, these studs are fun and playful. They can be given as a gift or they can be split between you and your partner to symbolize your relationship and to show them that they truly have the key, and lock, to your heart. The studs are made of 9 karat gold. The key features one larger cubic zirconia crystal while the lock is studded with several smaller ones.
Swarovski has once again outdone themselves with the design of these hoop earrings. Still following the mismatched earrings trend, the design of this pair remains sophisticated. The subtle elegant difference in each earring creates a beautiful marriage between style and class. The silver plated hoops are set around their entire circumference with crystals. One of the hoops features a gold heart-shaped knot design at the top, from the knot dangles a larger singular crystal. On the second earring it appears as if the crystal has dripped and attached itself to the bottom of the hoop, leaving just the gold plated heart-shaped knot at the top.
These Treasure House studs are playful and cute. They would make the perfect gift for anyone youthful at heart, mind and spirit. The earrings, a bee and a honeycomb, are made of 9 karat yellow gold.

Bees appear to be a popular design when it comes to mismatched earrings. This pair of studs represents a small bee in flight and a heart. The earrings are made of sterling silver and plated in rose gold. The bee features engraved details onto the wings. Grey enamel covers the heart, adding a subtle colour and interest to the design.
