Stud Earrings

This understated design is classic and stylish at the same time. Stud earrings allow you to dress up a casual outfit without overdoing it and perfectly complement an elegant look without stealing the show. The options are endless. Try wearing earrings with different metals, different stones, and different designs that pair perfectly with every hairstyle. For a classic look, consider a pair of delicate solitaire diamond studs. For an elegant modern take, wear a pair of diamond studs embellished with a dazzling halo design.

Drop Earrings

These delicate beauties add dramatic luxury to any look. Drop earrings look fabulous with a sophisticated up-do hairstyle and are a great option for a day to night look. When adorned with dazzling diamonds, they create an eye-catching look that draws attention and adds graceful movement. Choose the length based on the occasion, such as a shorter drop earring for a sophisticated daytime look and a longer length for a glamorous night out style.

Hoop Earrings

A bold and daring pair of hoop earrings are always a popular choice. When paired with an up-do they draw attention to the delicate earlobe and frame the jawline. When worn with long hair, hoops create a playful look as they peek through the hair and add dazzle and sparkle. A wide variety of choices make them ideal for any style with shapes ranging from classic round hoops to geometric square designs. Dressing them up with dazzling diamonds always adds elegance and glamour.


Huggie earrings are a must-have for any collection. The style is delicate and understated with just the right amount of luxe and style. When you cannot decide between a simple pair of studs or a dramatic pair of hoops, huggies are the perfect compromise giving you the best of both worlds. Brilliant yellow gold huggies embellished with dazzling diamonds allow you to take this delicate look and add a fabulous allure.

Ear Climbers

This eye-catching style is dramatic and commands attention, especially when worn with an up-sweep hairstyle. As these delicate earrings climb the ear, they add fashion-forward style to any look. While they add style to a casual daytime look, they are perfect for a dramatic night out. Also known as ear crawlers, this look is spectacular when embellished with colored gemstones such as rubies or emeralds, allowing you to add a splash of color to this trendy look.
