Personalised Birthstone Sterling Silver Earring With Crystals
by Ellie Ellie
Earrings have been in fashion since before anyone can remember. The Ancient Egyptians loved them, archeological evidence suggests that the Persians (men, mostly) were wearing them back in 550BC, and there are references to earrings in the Bible. Ear piercing fell out of favour under the strict morals of the Victorian era in the 1800s and right through to the first half of the 20th century, it was considered something ‘nice girls’ didn’t do. By the 1960s however, ear piercing was back in vogue, and earrings have been a staple part of the jewellery scene ever since.
When it comes to earrings, the flamboyant world of huge hoops and vertiginous drops is a fabulous way to show off your state of mind. But sometimes, you just want a low-key pair of studs you can pop in and forget about during the day — and night. A stud earring is simply defined as a gemstone or other ornament, mounted on a narrow post. But just because stud earrings have a comparatively minimalist look, doesn't mean they have to be boring! At Hardtofind you’ll find a huge range of stud earrings to match your mood, from the timeless classics to the wonderfully whacky.
The beauty of the stud earring lies in its simplicity. Often featuring a tiny gemstone or simply a ball or bar of precious metal — think classic gold stud earrings, pretty rose gold stud earrings or simple silver stud earrings — it appears magically suspended on your earlobe courtesy of the tiny fastening at the back. Stud earrings work for everyone and for every look, from casual day to after dark, and recreation to business chic. Studs are simple, stylish and, with their myriad designs, the most versatile of all ear jewellery. Small stud earrings in classic shapes such as ball stud earrings, hearts, stars, or infinity symbols will go with any outfit and any occasion.
Do you like to express your personality through your earrings? They don’t have to be huge and dangly to get your message across! At Hardtofind, stud earrings come in a wonderful range of fun designs from ducks, rabbits and whales to birds and butterfly stud earrings. Channel your sweet side with strawberries and lollies, ice creams and cupcakes. Choose a pair that incorporates your zodiac sign, or mismatched stud earrings depicting the moon and sun, different sized hearts or stars, or your first and last initials. At Hardtofind the choice is endless!
Small but precious, stud earrings make a wonderful gift for a friend, family member or loved one. If you’re not sure what type of earrings to buy, a good place to start could be with the recipient’s birthstone stud earrings. This might be beautiful pearl stud earrings (June), aquamarine (March) or amethyst studs (February) and so on. Gemstone studs are a great way to add a bit of colour to any outfit. They're beautiful, timeless, and extremely wearable.
Another great way to make the gift of stud earring extra special is by personalising them to the giftee. Gift personalisation is easy, even on tiny stud earrings, and it’s never been easier to make your gift of stud earrings one of a kind. You can have simple stud earrings personalised with the recipient’s initials, or buy stud earrings that are in the shape of the first letter of their name. If it’s a romantic present, you can choose to have one earring engraved with their initial, and the other with yours, which will remind them how much you care each time they wear them. Or check out the stud earrings in a personalised gift box, where you can have a message delivered with your gift that is pertinent to the sentiment or occasion. When it comes to buying gifts, it’s the thought that counts and a personalised gift will show you care, and stand the test of time. (When searching for your personalised stud earrings at Hardtofind, check the ‘Can be personalised’ box in Special features.)
TIP: If the person you’re buying for already has a large collection of earrings, you might consider buying them a jewellery stand, wall hanging or box, so they can keep their favourite pairs at their fingertips.
Do you know someone who’s excited to be having their ears pierced? The average age in Australia to start wearing pierced earrings is just seven, so taking care of newly pierced ears is super important. New piercings take between six and 12 weeks to heal, and during that time you need to keep your earrings in day and night. Stud earrings are recommended over hoops or dangly styles. That’s because stud earrings are less likely to snag on clothing or bedding so your ear lobes (or elsewhere!) will be protected. You can choose from a host of different shapes — including circles, triangles and bar stud earrings — and a myriad different sparkly stones. Choose earrings made from hypoallergenic metals that won't irritate the skin.
In these pages, you’ll find all the best stud earrings Australia-wide. You’ll also discover a wide range of other earrings including drop earrings, hoop earrings, long earrings and personalised jewellery. Looking for somewhere to store your stud earrings?
