You know that sinking feeling you get when you realize that you’ve lost one half of a favorite pair of earrings? Staring at its (now pointless) other half can be torturous, but if you really loved a pair of earrings, there are a few things that you can do with the one that you still have.
Many jewelers will be able to convert the earring into a pin. Large, flat gemstone earrings and even smaller posts might look adorable pinned to the collar of your favorite coat or jacket. And this way the investment you made in the original pair of earrings isn’t totally lost. Plus, there’s something really cool and vintage about pins.
If you like to wear hair clips, flat earrings can be easily attached to barrettes and pins. Sparkling hair accessories are perfect for a night out and look great with curly hair.
Of course, you could be extremely bold and adventurous and wear â€“ wait for it â€“ mismatched earrings. It sounds a little kooky, but we promise that it looks cool. Especially if the earrings are different enough to make your style seem deliberate.
