STUDS

Stud earrings appear to float on the earlobe, and comprise a decorative front, a post which pierces the ear and secure fixture to reverse. The decorative front of a stud earring could be simplistic such as single diamond, or a cluster of gemstones.

A shirt stud is an ornamental fastener that holds together the opening of a formal dress shirt and became popular during the mid 19th century. Shirt studs can be seen in very varied designs from simplistic ‘buttons’ through to gem set inlays, enamel or engraved patterns.
