Few pieces of gemstone jewelry are as classic as a pair of earrings that place matching stones in your ears and let the natural beauty of these gems take the spotlight. Simply-set gemstones are timeless, making them perfect picks when you’re looking for pieces that will add colorful glimmer to your look season after season. And, there are plenty to choose from! Here are three factors to consider when picking a pair of Gemstone Stud Earrings.
Color is often the first factor that’s considered when shopping for gemstone stud earrings, and no matter what hue strikes your fancy, there’s a gem to match! Aquamarine jewelry is complementary to a wide range of skin tones, and a pair of earrings that features this glimmering light blue gem is a lovely way to work a touch of refreshing glimmer into your look. Aquamarine earrings, such as the Aquamarine Stud Earrings, 14K White Gold, are especially complementary to those with blue eyes, although they flatter a wide range of complexions. This simple but striking pair features two round aquamarines in your choice of size (4mm, 5mm, 6mm or 7mm) and places them in shining four-prong settings of 14K white gold.
The shape of the stone that you choose can make a big difference in their appearance! Although round gems are the most common picks for gemstone stud earrings, you’re not limited to only circular stones. An emerald cut can give a modern, geometric look to a pair of richly-colored gems and the 3.40 Carat Emerald-Cut London Blue Topaz Stud Earrings are a stylish example. Two 1.70-carat London blue topaz gems are held by four-prong settings of 14k white gold for a total of 3.40 carats of deep blue sparkle.
Heart-shaped stones provide a feminine variation that give gemstones of many kinds a romantic beauty. Each of the 1.50 Carat Heart-Shaped Pink Topaz and Diamond Earrings in 14K White Gold features a 6mm-high pink topaz and accents it with several small round diamonds that stud a sweeping setting of 14K white gold. These vibrant gems perfectly balance a sense of fun and girlish charm with grown up sophistication and daring color.
The metal that you choose for the setting of a pair of gemstone stud earrings can change the personality of that pair: white gold earrings and those that utilize platinum settings add a cool sheen that’s modern and chic, while yellow gold settings add a warm glow with a classic look. The Emerald Stud Earrings in 14K Yellow Gold are an excellent example of the way that 14K yellow gold can warm up the look of any gemstone. This pair of green gems is truly timeless, with their classic, vibrant hue and gleaming yellow gold four-prong settings. However, if you prefer a cooler look, this pair is also available set in platinum or 14K white gold.
The simple, timeless beauty of gemstone stud earrings makes them timeless picks that are always just right. Consider color, cut and metal to find your perfect pair.
