Stacked New York’s “7th Avenue” line of studs can be purchased in a pair or separately to mix and match a look ($85 each). The line includes seven gemstone options.
New York--Stacked New York, the brand that launched earlier this year with a line of stackable silver bangles and bands, has debuted its first collection of stud earrings, and they are designed to be mixed and matched.

The “7th Avenue” line comes in seven different gemstones--black spinel, clear quartz, red spinel, sky- blue topaz, green amethyst, purple amethyst and rose quartz--that are sold individually to allow the consumer to create their own customized set. Mismatched earrings, whether they are complementary, slight variations of each other or completely different, are in right now.

Each 10 mm checkerboard-cut round briolette is set in a hammered Argentium silver bezel, a signature Stacked NY design element that was carried over from the brand’s Varick Street and Carmine Street bangles and bands.

The symbolism and “majestic energy” of the number seven played an important role in conceptualizing the collection, according to the company.

“The lighter side of the number seven is all about creativity and imagination,” said Stacked New York Creative Director Tina Snyder. “We wanted to capture that magical quality in these fun, interchangeable earrings.”

Made in New York, the 7th Avenue studs are priced at $85 per stud/$170 per pair.

Tina Snyder, the former MJSA Journal editor-in-chief, started Stacked New York earlier this year with Scott Raskin, vice president of Kemp Metal Products.

“The time is now for a versatile brand that speaks to the female self-purchaser’s need for a fashionable, high-quality silver line with meaning,” Snyder said when the line was debuted.
