Characteristics of Stud Earrings
Stud earrings have long been simple and elegant pieces of jewelry that seem to float effortlessly on a wearer's ears without any visible support. In general, a stud earring is any earring that relies on a central post which pierces the earlobe and is attached by a fastener at the back. Some stud earring designs feature a "screw back" fastener, which twists into place in order to hold the earring more securely. While the most iconic stud earring is a simple solitaire diamond, they can range in complexity and intricacy from the simplest to the most ornate styles.
Popular Collections of Stud Earrings
A classic example of the stud earring can be found in any piece from a Tacori collection. Each earring from Tacori is handmade in Southern California, where the family-owned company has been personally crafting each piece since the early 1970's. Tacori is renowned for its interlocking crescent design—a series of overlaid crescents and angles that reflect the brilliance of each piece. The Horizon Shine collection features high quality gems in a horizontal setting for a modern twist, while the Sonoma Mist collection provides a more casual, circular design motif that evokes mornings walking through the wine country of California.
Additional Stud Earring Collections
If Tacori is known for their love and attention to detail, Simon G. is renowned for their elevation of a standard jewelry design. For rings and stud earrings alike, most jewelers use a simple two-prong attachment style, while Simon G. uses four prongs rather than cheap adhesives. Their Nocturnal Sophistication collection is designed for an evening out in high society, with glittering pieces that are meant to evoke the night sky. Meanwhile the Organic Allure collection features a more lighthearted, innocent range of pieces that draw their inspiration from butterflies and flowers.
