Stud earrings. They’re a go-to for every day sparkle or to dress up an outfit for a special occasion. Round or Princess cut studs are the classic look—but they’re far from the only choice for great earrings that go with everything. From fancy cuts to special settings, studs can make a statement about your personal style.
Style: Sophisticated and spunky
Studs: Oval cut, filigree set; this subtle update on the traditional Round Brilliant cut studs adds a little extra visual interest while maintaining that classic elegant look. For added character, choose the filigree setting, which adds extra detailing into the sides of the setting.
Style: Modern-vintage mash-up
Studs: Pear cut, basket set; this shape takes a fresh spin on studs, drawing on the vintage feel of the teardrop shape. The clean lines of basket settings keep these feeling modern and updated, while letting the sparkle of the Contemporary Nexus Diamond take center stage.
Style: Gorgeous and glam
Studs: Radiant cut, basket set; the rectangular shape is an update on the traditional square Princess cut studs. The geometric lines and radiance make these studs a go-to for when you want to feel extraordinary on any ordinary day.
Style: Feminine and regal
Studs: Marquise cut, filigree set; the Marquise cut stretches all the way back through history to about 1745 in Paris, when King Louis XV commissioned it from the court jeweler. The elongated, pointed oval shape maximizes carat weight—so you get maximum sparkle, even in smaller studs. The filigree setting adds even more graceful style to these earrings for everyday wear or special occasions.
Style: Boldly unexpected
Studs: Triangle cut, basket set; when you want to make a statement, go with Triangle cut studs. The unique shape is eye-catching and incredibly sparkly, and the simplicity of the basket setting allows the brilliance of the Nexus Diamonds to do all the talking.
Style: Classic with an edge
Studs: Colored Round cut; if you love the look of a classic Round Brilliant cut, but want something to make them stand out, then consider a colored stone. Canary, rose, chocolate, champagne or pale glacial ice blue all make a beautifully brilliant statement, or choose one of our lab-created rubies, emeralds or sapphires.
Studs are a perfect piece to make any outfit a little extra luminous. The good news? You can choose your cut, color and setting to find just the right pair—or two or five—of studs to match your personal style.
