With versatility at the heart, the layered earrings

are the ultimate mix and match earrings. With one drop from the stud and the other from the butterfly, you can change up your look by incorporating some of the earrings you already have in your collection.

Use one of your own butterfly earring fastenings and wear just the front drop, or use one of your own stud earrings with the drop on the back butterfly. This means you can create 3 different looks just from one pair of earrings.
