Stunning Diamond Stud Earrings in 3, 2, 1!

The days of diamond studs being only for special occasions are over. Diamond stud earrings come in all shapes and sizes, making it the perfect accessory for everyday style, as well as special events. We’re seeing diamond studs being worn in all different ways, from stacking to mix-and-matching, each trend speaking to each customer’s personal style. Therefore, let’s dive deeper into three diamond stud earring trends that are sure to be a hit for your customers. 

Classic Cocktail-Styles

When it comes to the classic diamond stud earrings, a cocktail-style is considered to be one of the most popular styles. Its name comes from the resemblance of a martini or cocktail glass when glanced at from its profile. The style itself is typically made of four prongs or three prongs. Stuller is happy to say that we sell both styles. A prime characteristic of this setting is its narrow base, whose design differs from that of a basket-style or the crown-style settings, and the diamond is set low in the frame, close to the ear. Setting the stone closer to the earlobe improves the balance of the stud whenever being worn. Making this a perfect classic diamond stud earring that can be worn every day.

Bold Bezel Settings

For the second classic diamond stud, a bezel setting is next on the list. This sleek style adds extra security to diamond studs, making them perfect for your contemporary and active customers. Although this setting is a modern and bold statement, bezel settings are among the oldest jewelry settings used throughout history. Because a bezel setting surrounds your diamond, it can also add to the circumference. This helps with the security of diamond studs while also giving the look and appearance of a larger stone. Today, these settings provide an ideal blend of old and new to create a fresh, modern, yet classic look to your diamond stud earrings.

Smaller Carat Sizes

The best pieces come in small packages! This can be true whenever it comes to diamond stud earrings. More petite and dainty diamond studs have become more popular for people that enjoy the look of a busy ear that’s full of diamonds. If your customer is someone who has many piercings in their ears and wants to adorn them with diamonds, a smaller carat size may be the best option in order to prevent overcrowding.  With a smaller carat total weight, creating the perfect ear stack is easy.

The Girlfriend Gift

Ten years ago, you may not see the average twenty-something year old woman in a jewelry store shopping for her best friend or sister-in-law. Today, however, these baguette micro-bezel diamond studs (2000410:1049:P) are both trend-forward and budget-friendly. She may also decide to go for matching mirror link chain bracelets (CH1106:100:P) and a fun charm or two. (Check our 302® Fine Jewelry Charm School™ Collection for our favorite, best-selling charms!)

The Matriarch Gift

Our favorite gifts are of course reserved for the Matriarch of the household. What says, “We love and appreciate you” more than our showstopping Natural Diamond Curb Bracelet (BRC822:600:P) or a gorgeous Natural Diamond bar necklace (87383:150:P) For the mom that simply has everything, opt for a fun and trendy stackable chain ring (52078:101:P) that says, “You are the link that holds us all together.”

These wardrobe staples can be worn everywhere from work to dinner to the grocery store, and no one’s jewelry box is complete without a pair. For someone looking for a trendier piece for their ear stack, you can’t go wrong with our Freshwater Cultured Pearl Huggies (688758:103:P). Bringing a modern spin on the world’s oldest gemstone, these are not your grandmother’s pearl earrings.

Five Looks Inspired by the Stars of the 2021 Met Gala

Celebrities and notable figures from across the world gathered in New York City last night for the greatest night in fashion: the annual Met Gala. The Gala, chaired by Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, is a fundraiser to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. For decades, the Met Gala has been a night of high fashion, star-studded celebrity appearances, and bold statements — last night being no exception.

As a lover of celebrities and their fashion statements, you can imagine last night to be my personal version of the Super Bowl! Coming off of a two-year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, the stars of the red carpet did NOT disappoint. I teamed up with Taylor Beadle and Shelby Brignac from Stuller’s Fine Jewelry team to look for inspiration on the red carpet. Our goal was to pick jewelry pairings inspired by the stunning ensembles of our favorite celebrities. While we would have loved to feature all attendees, we picked a handful of icons we simply had to mention.

Here are our top 5 stars of the 2021 Met Gala and jewelry pairings we’d choose based on their outfits.

A true fashion industry trailblazer and fixture, we would have seriously missed out if we didn’t give a callout to the chair of the Met Gala and Vogue editor-in-chief herself. First to arrive to greet her guests, Anna Wintour donned a colorful floral dress and we were instantly inspired.

Keeping with the floral motifs, we chose a pairing of Stuller’s new floral necklace (88067) and floral signet ring (57724) set in yellow gold. To add a pop of color, reflecting the vibrant flowers in her dress, we chose a gemstone line bracelet (651742) that comes in options with Blue Sapphire, Ruby, or Emerald.

If you’ve kept up with the rising career of Billie Eilish, another co-chair of the Met Gala, then you would have been absolutely shocked by her look last night. Known very well for her dark, punk, and baggy clothing fashion statements, last night was a departure in which she challenged herself to reach outside of her comfort zone. She absolutely glowed in a peach-nude gown with a massive train that trailed down the stairs of the red carpet behind her. When asked about her inspiration, she mentioned classic Hollywood stars, such as Marilyn Monroe.

This nod to classic style with a twist inspired us to do the same. We immediately would put together pieces from our new additions to the Modern Brilliance® collection where we have paired lab-grown diamonds with pearls. Our lab-grown diamond and cultured freshwater pearl earrings (688845), necklace (688847), and drop earrings (688846) are the perfect complement to styles where classic meets modern.

Timothée Chalamet

One of the co-chairs of the Met Gala event, Timothée Chalamet definitely did not disappoint. The American actor chose a more subtle black and white color palette for his ensemble, but it did not lack sophistication.

From his outfit, we were inspired to choose pieces that spoke to his monochromatic theme. Our diamond and Onyx negative space ring (688826), diamond and white enameled lock charm/pendant (688834), and black onyx pendant (88122) could all come together for a simple, yet elegant combination.

American actress, model, and activist Yara Shahidi shined and sparkled on the red carpet. Her glittering ensemble not only caught the light, but it also caught your attention with its modern beauty.

This eye-catching look deserves jewelry that shines just as bright in on-trend fashion. New to our Modern Brilliance collection, our new 16 inch 6.75 carat lab-grown diamond line necklace (688853) would be a perfect statement piece. To complement the beautiful necklace, we would add a lab-grown diamond bezel-set ring (653703) and a straight baguette lab-grown diamond ring (688764).

To round out the night’s picks, we’d like to recognize Instagram executive and children’s book author Eva Chen. Although not a well-known celebrity in the music or film industry like many of the other attendees, Chen reminds us that guests of the Met Gala span a variety of industries. She made her appearance in a gown with a pop of color that really inspired us.

The rainbow featured in Eva Chen’s gown inspired us to curate our own splash of color with new enameled styles recently added to 302® Fine Jewelry. Enameled heart earrings (688831), ring (688844), and bar earrings (688832) in red, white, and black options add color and intrigue to any look.

A Night to Remember

With so many fabulous stars on the red carpet, it was nearly impossible to choose only five to feature. Honorable mentions could include several favorites, including Justin and Hailey Bieber, Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello, and Kaia Gerber to name a few. After two years of virtual red carpets and socially distant events, seeing last night’s Met Gala truly made for a night to remember.
