Some things are best suited to pairs: socks, shoes, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Earrings, though, don’t always have to match (proof: this roundup of fantastic ear candy, none of which has an identical twin). For earring traditionalists who shudder at the thought of wildly mismatched lobes, there are these: a quartet of geometric brass danglers that are sold singularly, and made to be worn in subtly mismatched pairs.

While I was excited when I got wind of Ritual Ritual’s expansion—the postage-stamp-sized NoLibs shop is moving into Arcadia’s vacated space—I really cheered when I got news of the store’s brand-spanking-new website. After all, a spiffy brick-and-mortar is fantastic, but sometimes you just need a quick mid-afternoon shopping break from the comfort of your cubicle, without hightailing it to the other side of town. Enter: Ritualritual.com, the boutique’s gorgeously spare and now totally shoppable website, so you can get your bauble fix while you wait for the bigger and better store to officially open later next month.

I know everyone lauds crisp whites for being the perfect color to pair with a tan, but I’m a fan of rose gold. It’s less severe than white, more flattering than it’s gold cousin, and peachy-pink gold looks great on every skin tone. (Listen up, fellow pale chicks.) From sandals to t-shirts, see how rose gold has moved beyond just jewelry—though the jewelry is still pretty darn cute. Here, 10 of our favorite ways to wear rose gold this summer.

After the huge wave of bib necklaces we had been seeing since 2012 finally subsided, we were in serious need of statement necklaces that were a little less suffocating. (Pendants: You’re cute and all, but we need a little more heft.) Enter: LizaBeth. Lucky for us, the Philly native is having a trunk show at Joan Shepp starting today.

Hey, we get it: Single and mismatched earrings are a tricky trend. They might even call to mind some misguided 1980s jewelry. (Ahem, Madonna.) But 2014’s iteration is so darn cute, it’s impossible to compare it to the earrings of yesteryear. Plus, it’s versatile. Opt for a single dangly earring for a statement, or tiny mismatched studs for a subtle look. Either way, it’s an act of earring rebellion we can get behind.
