Stud earrings are very delicate and usually the smallest when it comes to earrings. This is why for many women, studs are a go-to for daily wear. However, stud earrings can be more than that. They can be catchy and compliment your style in a minimalist way if that’s what your outfit needs.
Minimalist Stud Earrings
Usually elegant outfits that feel minimalist will look quite dainty when you pair them with stud earrings. They will also allow a delicate necklace and some rings as long as you keep it light and minimal.
Here are some examples of our delicate stud earrings that will uplift your outfit in a gentle way.
Hercule earrings are stud earrings with a twist. They are small enough to fit into a minimalist look, but big enough to be seen and admired with any hair style and outfit.
Ulysse stud earrings are for those who want more texture than the Hercule earrings for a more remarkable yet minimalist style.
Statement Jewelry with Stud Earrings
Sometimes going overboard with jewelry can be slightly too much. But this does not mean that just because you have a favorite necklace you have to leave your earrings behind. Stud earrings are here to give space for larger pieces of jewelry like a stack of rings or necklaces. That way you are creating a balance without leaving your ears completely unadorned.
Here are some pairs of stud earrings that can help you create a balanced look with your statement piece jewelry.
Paolina is the perfect set of earrings that adds a bit of shine without dominating an outfit. With this pair you can easily combine a statement piece jewelry that will have enough space to shine without making your entire outfit too cluttered.
Hera is another immaculate example of how dainty earrings can adorn your ears without grabbing the attention while you still get some sparkle and shine. With them you can use any big statement piece necklace or a choker, or a big stack of rings and your look won’t feel over the top.
Stud Earrings Can Guide You
Wearing stud earrings in floral design can guide your entire outfit. You can wear a blouse with a floral print and then match such stud earrings.
Romeo earrings are another set of ornate stud earrings that can serve as a guide for the rest of your outfit. This set is very feminine so they will guide your equally feminine outfit with a similar motif.
Drop earrings are a set of earrings that go slightly below the earlobe. They don’t necessarily swing, unlike dangle earrings that always swing but they are longer than stud earrings.
Probably every woman has at least one pair of drop earrings as they are slightly more noticeable but still small enough for everyday wear.
Drop earrings can have a subtle design but they are bolder and eye-catching just like our Cléon earrings. This pair won’t go unnoticed and its best paired with a more dainty necklace and a ring or two for the most balanced look.
Flora drop earrings bring a more casual look yet feminine and dainty enough to be both an elegant and a to-go look for you in any occasion. You can wear these with blue jeans and a flowing blouse but you can also wear them with a little black dress and still look fabulous.
The earrings will swing and sparkle as you move without being too distracting.
Dangle earrings are usually the statement piece of your look and with them you don’t wear any necklace or a stack of rings because it will be too distracting and over-the-top.
Here are some lovely examples of dangle earrings that will create a ‘wow factor’ for you even with the simplest of outfits.
Cordia earrings are the perfect representation of a statement piece. They are noticeable, catch the attention and go well with any hair length, style and elegant outfit.
Dangle earrings are very varied, so we have more types to show you and inspire you to find the right kind to match your style.
Syna earrings are another dangle set that serve as the main focal of your outfit. In this case, we recommend that you don’t wear other jewellery or simply wear a subtle ring or two or maybe just one bracelet. That way the rest of the jewelry is further away from your ears, and does not distract from your ears.
Ariane earrings are probably the daintiest, most subtle dangle earrings you can own. They add depth of style yet are very minimalist. This is the perfect combination for someone who wants to create a statement piece without going overboard.
Hector earrings are very intricate and are best paired with a stack of rings and nothing else. Similar to our Cordia above but slightly more calm, the design of Hector is excellent as a statement piece without too much drama around it.
Hoop earrings are a classic statement piece a women’s wardrobe can’t do without. In ancient times Sumerian women wore hoops around 2500 BC and to this day, hoops are still a staple piece of jewelry across the world.
At Agapé we craft a few different types of hoop earrings. We have some very ornate to simple and classic to plain ones that will catch the eye and add interest to your outfit but not distract from your outfit and the rest of your jewelry.
Large intricate hoops like the Aléa earrings are crafted to make a big statement and grab attention as you walk into a room. With this pair you don’t have to wear any other piece of jewelry and you’ll still shine from afar. Such hoop earring designs catch the light effortlessly, which will attract the attention to you.
Hoop earrings don’t have to be big to fall into this category. But they can still be catchy to ornate your style well enough. Our Louise earrings come with a twist and a pattern that feels special for any outfit. They add sophistication without being overly large. As such, you can wear them with a suit to add some feminine sparkle, or with a very casual outfit where you stack rings, bracelets or necklaces in the same color metal for a perfectly balanced and complete look.
Want a more complex look? Côme with its detailed pattern will uplift your style, add complexity yet remain in the background thanks to its perfect size.
No matter the earrings you pick, make sure you go with the ones that make you feel confident and comfortable regardless of what’s hot right now. Your confidence will complete any outfit and you can’t be confident if you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin. If oversized and bold earrings aren’t your thing, then smaller and dainty will still be charming.
