How to Create the Curated Ear

By Amanda Evans 4 Minute Read

The Curated Ear® is a term coined by Maria Tash for what can essentially be described as ear stacking. Maria Tash has achieved global recognition for her piercing jewellery, from traditional studs to single threaded studs, hoops, or spike charms. Available as single items, the opportunities are endless to curate your own individual ear.

MARIA TASH has revolutionised the fine jewellery and luxury piercing industries. The Curated Ear® is a technique Maria herself developed where clients combine studs and rings in unique stylings that reflect their personal aesthetics. Maria thinks of curating an ear like choosing the perfect outfit; every component works together for a combination that is all the wearer’s own. Maria has spent over 20 years designing jewellery that complements the shape of the ear.

Celebrities like Rihanna, Charlize Theron, Blake Lively and many more have created their looks with MARIA TASH piercings and jewellery, on the red carpet and on the front of luxury style magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and in their personal every day style.

Express Yourself

Years ago, an ear adorned with piercings was viewed as ‘alternative’. Today, layering one’s ear with jewellery that tells a story is an expression of personality that is as commonplace as fashion.

Great curation is imaginative and memorable, and there are several ways to achieve it. Maria suggests balancing skin tone, personal aesthetic, and the weight and style of the pieces that are placed next to each other.

When it comes to styling, be intentional about composition. You can play with symmetry, patterns, or themes. The choices are endless. Be true to your style, trust your instincts, and have fun as you go.

We invited our Buyer for Brands and Jewellery, Lisa Hall, to curate her own look with her favourite pieces from Maria Tash…

I love the motifs such as the stars, moons and lightning bolts so have chosen a Maria Tash lightning bolt charm which can be worn back with a diamond cuff for my lower lobe. I would also have a spike earring , a look which Maria is known for, in the diamond and then finish up my lower lobe with a diamond star stud - a simple but stunning piece.

I’m also currently obsessed with a baguette cut which has become increasingly popular in diamond jewellery so I would finish with a diamond baguette stud in my helix. Since I’ve now run out of piercing’s I need to start planning my next one so I can add to my ear stack!
