Stud Earrings

From ancient Mesopotamia to modern-day metropolises, stud earrings are an eternally sophisticated staple for any stylish figure. They are so named for the fact that they attach to the earlobe via a post that extends through the ear to be secured by a backing, giving the impression that the small stud is simply levitating in front of the ear.

In the ancient world, the wearing of earrings was a sign of status and, at times, a symbol of belonging to a particular family or tribe. Over time, the art of the earring became increasingly refined, with the clunky hoops of earlier generations replaced by more refined styles that incorporated a rudimentary post backing.

As earring tastes changed over generations, the stud remained a perennial favorite, as it makes a subdued statement yet still captures an air of elegance. Studs are still beloved today for this universal quality, making an acquisition of an antique or vintage pair all the more compelling.
