How to Pull Off Mismatched Earrings

How to Pull Off Mismatched Earrings

According to StyleCaster, Meghan Markle was spotted wearing two different earrings by two different designers.

It’s hard to associate Meghan Markle with “mismatch” of anything. Considering her impeccable style, and her darling Prince Harry by her side, “mismatch” is a word that seems to have nothing to do with her. But when it comes to earrings, it’s a different story. She flaunted her daring spirit in the detail that matters in fashion - yes, earrings.


Apparently, this wasn’t the first time Meghan was seen wearing this V-shaped earring. And we can’t blame her for it. Who doesn’t like classy ear stud in pave diamonds, a setting of multiple small diamonds to maximize the dazzle. It’s simple yet sparkling. It’s classy and chic. It’s hard not to get attached to such versatile piece of accessory that goes incredibly well with every possible look and outfit, because as for stud earrings, there are many options you can choose from - single stone, pave, or mix of both - to suit every mood.  And whatever the occasion is, you can’t go wrong with natural diamonds ear studs from Langerman.    

Another way to play with the mismatched earrings trend is to wear a single earring that speaks drama without the frills. Just like what Eve did on the red carpet at the 2018 Grammys.

Pulling off a bold, sophisticated look beautifully, she proved that less is more when you have a strong focal point - like a drop dead gorgeous earring.

So what happens when you mix an elegant stud with an audacious drop earring?

An individual look that’s both subtle and dramatic. How long will this hot trend stay cool? Looks like the magic of mismatch will stay strong, as the catwalk 2018 spring/summer revealed.


Whether you’re a rebel at heart who thrills at breaking the rules, or a fashionista who must flaunt, this creative and artistic way of finding your very own, one- of-a-kind style, is definitely a fun exploration. But don’t be discouraged if subtlety is your thing. As you know style is what makes you - you. So as long as you’re true to who you are, the rest will follow.

Here are some tips on how to implement and emulate the hottest trend without losing yourself.

  • It’s all about the shapes

Don’t be afraid to explore different geometrical shapes and forms - circle, square, rectangle, oval, semi-circle, etc. - this is the time to venture out. You will be surprised by the various choices you have. If you’re a circle person, try semi-circle. Even if you prefer square, give rectangle a shot. The point is to get out of your comfort zone and be bold and brave without losing your footing.  And since we at Langerman everything is tailor-made for you, it is also possible to order just one earring to match one of your existing earring.  Yes, a perfect chance to make use of your lost earring.

  • Drama doesn’t have to be loud

Remember the classy pave diamonds ear studs and gorgeous drop earrings we talked about earlier? Yes, style can be amplified but doesn’t have to be loud. Control the volume using contrast. Mix heavy and light, long and short, small and big. Opposites are great partners to create drama, but also to balance. So go ahead, make a statement without tipping.

  • Play with a feast of colors

No one can argue with this. Life would be so very dull without colors. For one obvious reason, colors are beautiful. And there would be no style, no fashion to speak of, without colors. And once you lay your eyes on our melee section you’ll agree.  Romantic pink paired with chic grey, ultra violet against lush green, blue with deeper blue - thank goodness we have a feast of colors to mix and match.

In this article, we’ll explore the enchanting features of Fancy Pink diamonds, uncovering their origins, possible tones, and the growing fascination around them.

Fancy Pink diamonds are the result of a remarkable geological process that lasted millions of years. During their formation process, atomic traces of minerals such as hydrogen, nitrogen, or boron were introduced into their crystalline structure, resulting in impressive hues.

However, another scientific theory states that the pink hue comes from a deformation in the crystal lattice of the stone, a phenomenon caused by extreme pressure.

Whichever the cause, thanks to our Earth’s natural transformations, today we get to enjoy the exceptional shades of Pink diamonds.

As luxury enthusiasts and jewelry connoisseurs seek to come in possession of the most exclusive and coveted pieces, the interest surrounding fancy pink diamonds continues to grow.

The refractive index of a diamond is approximately 2.42. This high refractive index is one of the factors that contribute to the exceptional brilliance and sparkle that diamonds are renowned for. The high refractive index allows diamonds to bend and reflect light in a way that creates maximum dispersion and brilliance, resulting in their captivating play of light and fire. It is this unique optical property that sets diamonds apart from other gemstones and contributes to their timeless allure and desirability.

Diamonds are renowned for their exceptional hardness, ranking 10 on the Mohs scale, which is the highest possible rating. This remarkable property makes diamonds highly resistant to scratching and abrasion, ensuring their longevity and durability even with daily wear.

This durability ensures that diamond jewelry, such as engagement rings and heavily worn pieces, can be cherished forever and passed down through generations.

What About Other Pink Gemstones?


This pink gemstone is often used in jewelry for its vibrant color. Pink tourmaline can be found in various parts of the world, including Brazil, Afghanistan, Mozambique, and the United States. Each location may produce unique variations in color and quality, making it more complicated for the regular customer to understand how to measure and compare characteristics.

Tourmaline ranks 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs' scale of hardness, making it moderately durable, but relatively softer compared to Pink diamonds. With a refractive index between 1.624 and 1.644, pink tourmaline exhibits a good amount of brilliance and light dispersion.

Pink quartz

This mineral showcases a soft, delicate pink hue that does not typically offer much sparkle. There are multiple levels of transparency available, from very translucent to milky opaque or smoky with yellow or brown undertones.

Scoring a 7 on the Mohs scale, pink quartz is relatively durable and suitable for some types of jewelry. However, it is still important to protect it from impact, and best suitable for earrings and low-wear pieces.

Pink Sapphire

The intensity of its color depends on the place of origin and the combination of trace elements present within its crystal structure.

With a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, pink sapphires are very durable and resistant, making them suitable for all kinds of jewelry pieces. However, they are more prone to scratches than diamonds.


Kunzite is quite affordable because it’s relatively unknown although it can be found in many places like Afghanistan, Brazil, Madagascar, and the USA.

Like most color stones, kunzite can be undergo irradiation or heat treatments to enhance its color. Exposure to heat and bright light can cause color in both natural and treated kunzite to fade over time.


Most morganite deposits are found in Brazil, but the highest quality specimens come from Madagascar. Typically, morganite enjoys a high transparency with minimal inclusions resulting in clear, polished stones.

Scoring a 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, Morganite is safe and durable enough for jewelry.

Your Best Choice: Pink Diamonds

There are multiple options to choose from to create a jewel with pink gemstones. However, they all fall short when compared to the durability and brilliance of natural Pink diamonds. With sources becoming more scarce while demand continues grows, Pink diamonds keep appreciating in value making them a better financial choice when compared to other gemstones which tend to loose value in the resale marker. Pink diamonds present multiple advantages for their investment potential and as a valuable asset to be passed on for generations.

When purchasing color gemstones, it’s important the buyer requests a professional laboratory report that discloses any enhancements to make an informed decision. Unfortunately for most consumers, it’s hard to find full-detailed information on a finished jewelry piece and it requires additional effort and inquiries to confirm the quality of a gemstone.
