Pearl Stud Earrings

The pearl stud earring exudes a sense of elegance and refinement. As such, it has been a classic staple of taste, from the days of Cleopatra to the current court of Queen of England.

Pearls have been celebrated throughout history not only for their luminous beauty but also for their relative rarity. They also stand apart form the vast range of gemstones in that they are one of the few precious stones made from a living organism. Moreover, unlike other gemstones, pearls require no polishing or cutting; their natural lustre is immediately apparent.

While most pearls on the market are a shade of white, pearls can be found in a variety of colors, from delicate pink to dark shades of grey and black. Regardless of color, pearl study earrings complement any lobe, adding a pop of pearlescence in the perfect place.


Quick Facts

  • The famed fashion maven Coco Chanel adored pearls, quipping: "a woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls"
  • The Pearl of Lao Tzu, also known as the Pearl of Allah, is the largest recorded pearl, measuring over nine inches across and weighing over 14 pounds
