Pearl Studs: A Comprehensive Guide

Pearl Studs: A Comprehensive Guide

Think nothing can surprise you anymore? Sometimes, the most simple jewellery pieces are also the most versatile.

And in the case of pearl stud earrings, there are some unique options to try out.

Keep reading to discover them all.

Step 1: Start With The Basics

Mini Pearl Studs

Whether you’re new to pearl earrings or simply want a solid foundation for your collection, the best way to start is with a pair of classic studs. They come in a wide variety of sizes - from small to large and even oversized! And their effortless, minimalist design is primed to fit in with your existing wardrobe.

Step 2: Introduce Some Variation

Large Button Pearls

As natural, organic materials, no two pearls will be measurably identical. Some are perceivably spherical and others are shaped like a button with one side slightly flattened.

Of course, once you’ve decided on a shape, you don’t want any noticeable differences between your left and right ears. Here at McFarlane Fine Jewellery we achieve this by carefully sourcing pairs of pearls for the same set of earrings. 

Step 3: Turn To Playful Styling

Long Chained Pearl Earring Pendants

This is where the fun begins: once you’ve become acquainted with your pearl studs, you’re ready to branch out! Pendants are a graceful way of enriching the look of earrings you already own.

You could create contrast with a bold and colourful gem pendant to animate your look. Or, on the contrary, you could shift from minimalism to statement by choosing matching pearl pendants.
