Diamond Stud Earrings

Diamonds entered human fascination during the 1st millennium B.C. when they first emerged from mines in India. The first documented reference to a diamond appears in the Sanskrit language and dates to the 4th century B.C., but the precious stones did not arrive in Western Europe until almost an entire century later.

First featured in jeweled designs in the 1200s, diamonds experienced an exponential rise in popularity among European audiences over the subsequent generations, particularly as the supply of the gems grew.

By the 16th century, the stones were appearing across illustrious jeweled pieces for royal and aristocratic classes, the versatility of the stone lending itself to a remarkable range of designs. Diamonds continue today to entrance those in their presence, making the investment in an antique or vintage pair of diamond stud earrings a savvy selection.


Quick Facts

  • So rare were diamonds upon their arrival in western Europe in the 13th century that French King Louis IX was said to have outlawed the use of diamonds for any commissions other than the kings
  • Though Indian diamonds cornered the market for almost one thousand years following their first mining, in the following centuries new centers for diamond mining became prominent, including South Africa and South America
  • The continents of Europe and Antarctica are the only two where diamond ore veins have yet to be discovered
