The Story: As one of the earliest earrings in history, stud earrings are characterized by a unique pattern made of precious metal or a gem set on a straight shank. Originally the prerogative of men, from the nobility of Egypt and Ancient Greece to Imperial China, then of rebels when the Catholic Church forbade the wearing of them in medieval times, earrings only became a feminine accessory at a later date. Now considered unisex, these stud earrings will adorn you whatever your style.
