A stud earring features a small, decorative item, such as a gemstone or piece of jewelry, that is mounted on a post and worn through a pierced earlobe. The post, also known as the “stem” or “pin,” typically goes through the earlobe, and the decorative item sits on the front side of the earlobe. The post is held in place by a butterfly clutch or screw-on back, which keeps the earring securely in place.
Stud earrings can come in a variety of styles and designs. Solitaire stud earrings feature a single gemstone or piece of jewelry, while cluster stud earrings feature multiple gemstones or pieces of jewelry arranged in a cluster. Halo stud earrings feature a central gemstone surrounded by smaller gemstones.
Stud earrings can be made from a variety of materials including gold, silver, and platinum. They can also have different types of gemstones, like diamond, pearl, and gemstone stud earrings. Some stud earrings may have intricate designs, while others may be more simple and minimalist.
Stud earrings are popular because of their versatility and timeless style. They can be worn with any outfit, and are appropriate for any occasion, formal or casual. They are also a great option for those who prefer a more understated look.
