Earrings are arguably one of the most important items of jewellery in any lady’s jewellery box. This is because they frame the face, the focal point of a person’s character. Whether vintage, antique or ancient, there exists a myriad of colour and style combinations, suitable for anyone’s taste.
Diamond stud earrings should surely be a staple of every lady’s wardrobe as they are versatile, and can be worn with any outfit, to any occasion. However if a larger and slightly more ornate look is required, perhaps a pair of diamond cluster or gem-set coronet cluster ear studs would be preferable. Hoop earrings, or earrings with an articulated pendant drop will gently sway with your movements, allowing the gemstones to catch the light and create a particularly attractive look.
Earrings for your wedding day are always glamorously showcased in your wedding photos. Rare and beautiful natural pearls, known for their lustre are often favoured as a beautiful and elegant addition to the wedding outfit. The lovely aspect about wedding jewellery of course is that it can be enjoyed long past the honeymoon as a special remembrance of your big day.
For those who have a penchant for ancient history, perhaps a pair of ancient earrings would fit the bill. Matching, intact ancient earrings are a particularly rare find. Ancient Roman earrings show off the skill and craftsmanship of the ancient world- they are unique and astonishing wearable survivals from bygone civilisations.
Whether studs, clip-ons, or dangling earrings, set with diamonds or a coloured precious natural and unenhanced gemstone, we will have a beautiful pair of earrings of a style unique to its period to help you mark that special occasion.
