About Us

our story

Founded in 2020, Cartilage Cartel is a British brand specialising in curated ear stacks, cartilage earrings, huggies, hoops, and cuffs.

We were born out of one simple philosophy: everyone should be able to look great at an accessible price without compromising on quality or style.

Cartilage Cartel’s mission is to help you achieve the 'curated ear look' by providing beautiful, timeless designs that transcend trends, by using high quality and safe materials that are ethically sourced and sustainably manufactured- offered at an affordable price.

Since our launch in 2020, we were shortlisted for the Retail Jewellers award for ‘Emerging Jewellery Brand of the Year 2021’ and have been featured in some of the biggest fashion and lifestyle publications in the UK including Marie Claire, Stylist, Sheer Luxe and Refinery 29.

Our Ethos


We’re here to help you get stacked. We like to think of ourselves as curated ear connoisseurs, ear party planners…. basically, we are experts at helping, advising, and teaching our customers about how to build out beautiful looks.

We’re here to create a ‘cartel’ of likeminded lovers of all things
ear-stacking, so why not book in for a free stack styling session by emailing us at hello@cartilagecartel.com.


Our stance on sustainability

At Cartilage Cartel, we are passionate about leaving a positive legacy- for the people as well as the planet. We work with an amazing factory that ensure best practices are put in place, meaning our supply and manufacturing chain is ethical and sustainable too.

We are proud to be a Carbon Neutral company as accredited by Carbon Neutral Britain. Plus, our beautiful packaging is not only totally Instagrammable, but it’s TOTALLY recyclable too.
