Key Item: Stud Earrings


They are the bluest of blue chips. Your daily bread. Stud earrings are the most classic and essential diamond jewelry item. But with necklaces becoming more important, stud and button earrings are newly fashionable too, even red carpet worthy.

Designers are responding with new styles that pack a lot of detail and finish into a very small package. All the trends are reflected in the latest studs and buttons: blackened metal, rose cut and rough diamonds, texture, floral motif, enamel, micro-pavé, and chunky faceted shapes. Even classic diamond studs are receiving more detailing. Multi-diamond combinations have the impact of larger single stone studs, combining more affordable price points with more feminine styling.

With studs moving into the spotlight, it may be time to look at your selection. We’ve gathered great new designs into a stud finder of sorts. Some of these styles are sure to please even young fashionistas who haven’t considered on-the-ear earrings before.
