Our selection has something for everyone and is definitely worth a look. Let’s go shopping!
Stud Earring History
As you may have assumed, earrings have been around a long time. Even in Biblical times, earrings are mentioned as a physical adornment and a beauty enhancement. A stud earring was also widely popular during the 1900s. Many women chose to forgo the piercing element of wearing earrings but opted for clip-on earrings. These earrings, due to their construction, mostly allowed only for a stud-type of style and not a dangle or drop design. Stud earrings are still highly desired and when asked, most people describe this style as “classic, minimal, conservative, modern, business-like, contemporary, everyday appropriate, lightweight, easy to wear, stylish, forever timeless and traditional.” It is typically a decorative earring, either created of plain metal or with gemstone/diamond accents, that is attached to a post and fixed to the earlobe with a butterfly or friction back. Stud earrings do not have a dangle or drop attached and are not the chandelier style. The stud earring usually brings to mind the traditional diamond stud or polished ball stud. However, a stud earring can also be a solitaire gemstone, a cluster of diamonds set to look like one, a large button style, or even a pearl.
What makes the stud earring style special

As mentioned above, the stud style has a specific connotation of being simple and classic. Many would even agree that the stud style is universally flattering on all face shapes and hairstyles. It is also very comfortable and typically lightweight. Since there is not a dangle or drop attached to the stud that usually adds additional weight, the earring itself is usually a lot lighter and an easy choice for every day wear. This type of earring also does not get tangled in long hair. It is an easy style to sleep in, this is especially good for screw-back or guardian back studs that take quite a bit of effort to take out and are very secure. The stud is also a good choice for multiple ear piercings. Also, many brides select the pearl or diamond stud for their wedding day. These options have an understated beauty to them that will not take away from an intricate hairstyle or the delicate details of a wedding dress. The stud earring offers versatility to wearing statement necklaces without having to forgo earrings all together. Most would say that the stud is the most effortless style of earring on the market!
