Cartilage piercings are the ultimate way to add a little something extra to any look. You don't have to settle on just one type of earring, and curating your ears in different ways is all part of the fun. But what if you're into the look and you don't want to commit to more piercings? We've got just the thing for you: meet the latest addition to our Nyssa family, the Diamond Waterfall earring.

Crafted in 9K or 18K solid gold, three chains cascade off of diamond encrusted ear cuffs, giving these sparklers the illusion of a waterfall. They're elegant statement pieces that give the same effect as cartilage piercings, minus the holes in your ears.

The best part is they attach and detach easily from any standard stud earrings and come paired with our Mini Sphere studs. Mix and match them with your favourite pieces, or elevate simple staples for a special occasion – the world is your oyster.

An Elegant, Punk-Inspired Design

"For this piece I was inspired by the punk trend, but I wanted to make it chic and delicate" says Pauline Revet, Nyssa's in-house designer. "This is the Nyssa version of punk: edgy yet elegant."

She researched historical punk jewellery trends as well as celebrity-inspired punk jewels and adapted these design elements to suit Nyssa's signature refined style. "It was the perfect opportunity to do something slightly more trendy and playful compared to other Nyssa pieces," she beams, adding, "you can match your look to your mood by wearing this piece with your personal studs or any other Nyssa studs."

Top Tips to Style Your Diamond Waterfall Earrings

Since you can wear the Diamond Waterfall earrings in a multitude of ways, we tapped our resident stylist, Rosemary Ling, to share a few of her favourite ways to style them: "Chains are not just for necklaces anymore," says Rosemary. "Like armour for your ears, these Diamond cuffs with a stunning waterfall-effect chain will bring some serious fun to your ear stack game."

She goes on to add that you can easily dress them up or down depending on the occasion. "Keep things more subtle and casual by pairing the cuff and chain with simple yet elegant studs like our Diamond Eclipse studs," she says. "But if you feel like glamming it up for dinner or a party, pick something more bold and sparkly like our Diamond Trinity studs or our Diamond Bar studs."

Aside from being super versatile, Rosemary also points out that these statement pieces stand out in other ways. "The cool thing is you can get the same edgy, unconventional look of real cartilage piercings without committing to any needles," she explains. "Plus, you won't need to worry about the cuffs potentially falling off your ears throughout the day or night (as cuffs often can) since they're attached to the chain – this means less stress and more time spent being the life of the party!"
