It can’t be said enough: diamond stud earrings are the ultimate jewelry gift. Regardless of age, personal style and budget, it’s simple to find a pair of sparkling studs to suit everyone. Their versatility and minimalist design means they can be worn for all occasions, from the every day to the once in a lifetime moments.
Here are just a few of the many options you have when choosing a gift of diamond studs.
A pair of round-cut diamonds in four-prong settings is the truly classic choice. White gold and platinum both complement the icy brilliance of each diamond, while four prongs emphasize symmetry and precision.
A three-prong martini setting, while subtly different, cradles the diamonds in a more stylish manner. Their asymmetrical quality allows the brilliance of each diamond to shine through. Yellow gold brings traditional glowing warmth to earrings, contrasting beautifully with the diamonds’ cool tones.
For a more modern take on brilliance, consider princess-cut center diamonds. Their prominent angles bring a contemporary charm to the otherwise timeless classic stud style.
For those who favor vintage design, asscher-cut diamond stud earrings are a striking alternative. Their shape is similar to the princess, but with cropped corners and a step-cut facet pattern. This gives them their distinctive ‘X’-shaped appearance. Evoking Hollywood glamour, as adored by such icons as Elizabeth Taylor, asscher-cut stones are sophisticated and rare.
