The FIRST day of Christmas......The classic diamond stud earrings. A must have in every ladies wardrobe (and some men but that's a whole 'nother topic). Diamonds studs come in several different settings, the first pair I have here are in a basket setting. This really allows the diamonds to be showcased, light can come in from every angle.
The next pair of round stud earrings are in the tradition 4 or 6 prong setting with a regular tension backing. You can go with the 4 prongs on smaller stones but definitely want to have the 6 prongs with larger stones like 1ct or higher. (that's 1ct each stone not 1ct total weight)
And if you're like me you are fond of things that are a little different but still have that classic style. I love my princess cut studs! And these are a great pair of fancy round studs with a pave halo. Diamonds can be worn on any occasions so you can easily dress these up with a matching pendant and purple dress (of course) or throw on some jeans and cashmere sweater.
