One of the most versatile choices you can have in your jewellery box is a good pair of stud earrings. Suitable for both day and night, stud earrings work with any outfit, can be subtle and yet make a statement if need be.
No matter what your style, this season is the perfect time to invest in a pair of stud earrings or two. Whether you want a great special occasion pair or a go-to option for most days, TJC has the right choice for you.
Here are five of our favourite pairs of stud earrings right now:
We love turquoise at the moment. It is the perfect stone for summer as it is bright and fits with the boho and festival trends. This means it is also ideal for featuring in stud earrings.
While turquoise is really versatile and works with both silver and gold, we think the contrast between the stunning blue shade and yellow gold really makes the stone pop. This ensures that even small earrings will stand out more, especially if you feature gold tones throughout the rest of your look.
With this in mind, these Arizona Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Stud Earrings in 14K Gold Overlay are a great choice.
The simple circular shape and overall design is really pretty and effective, while also meaning you can wear them on their own or with other turquoise jewellery.
Pretty rose quartz
For those who love pastel shades, you can include them throughout your jewellery by opting for rose quartz. This pretty pink stone is lovely for summer and works really well with stud earrings to inject a touch of femininity into your style.
Pieces like these Rose Quartz Stud Earrings will work great with outfits that feature other soft pastel shades, create an elegant look. However, you can also wear them with darker colours and tailored outfits to result in an effective contrast.
Floral styles are a big part of SS16, being showcased across clothing, accessories and jewellery. Even simple florals can be effective, especially if worn in small doses as a subtle accent.
A great way to do this is with stud earrings, as the flower shapes can enhance a typically floral outfit or soften harsher ensembles to add an element of the season.
This is why we love these Burmese Ruby Floral Stud Earrings so much. The rubies are a deep pink-red shade that works perfectly with the yellow gold overlay, while the simple floral shape is elegant and subtle yet instantly recognisable.
These are great for during the day, whether you’re dressing casually or for work, as well as for a night on the town.
With pretty sundresses, soft pastels and floral prints taking over the high street, one of the best choices for stud earrings is pearls. These classic embellishments look really beautiful when they catch the light and create an almost ethereal sheen.
The look gorgeous when you wear your hair up but still work with loose and wavy hair styles. This is why these 9K White Gold and Pearl Stud Earrings are one of our top choices right now.
For a full-on vintage-inspired look, team them with a string of pearls or an elegant pearl drop pendant and a pretty summer dress.
If in doubt, wear diamonds. Any type of diamond jewellery looks amazing, including stud earrings.
Whether your earrings are big or small, single stones or clusters, diamonds will catch the eye and add that perfect final touch to any outfit. During the day, they can introduce a touch of glamour to your style while in the evening, they serve as the icing on the cake.
Diamonds also don’t need to cost the earth, as we have a range of diamond jewellery to suit all budgets. This means your diamond studs don’t need to cost the earth.
