You already know diamond studs are the little black dress of jewelry. But, did you know you can dress up or dress down your studs for a perfect fit for any occasion? Explore with me how this jewelry staple can become even more versatile with earring jackets.
The versatile jackets come in a couple different versions, but the principle remains the same: the earring jacket is a piece that fits onto your earring post, typically fitted behind the ear lobe and is held in place with a butterfly or clasp. This hangs down behind your ear lobe, as a part of your earring, giving that extra oomph to your look.
If you’re going for a more dramatic look, consider the earring crawler or climber – a look we also love! The earring climber is designed to slide up the ear – creating the illusion of multiple piercings up the ear lobe.
The truth is earring jackets have actually been around for quite some time. However, more recent designs have embraced the trend and offer more versatility than the traditional circular jacket to be worn around the stud, creating a halo effect.
Our Most Popular Earring Jacket Styles
Under-lobe Earring Jacket – This design sweeps under your ear lobe, adding sparkle and is typically paired with a simple round stud.
Jackets with Pearls – This provides a fresh, modern twist to a timeless gemstone. The mix of sparkle and pearl is sophisticated, yet feminine.
Chandelier + Hoop Drop – The sparkly drop or hoop embrace a more formal look. These designs paired with a simple stud create the dramatic look you need to compliment any formal attire. Style them up or style them down. Investing in earring jackets provides variety and style.
