1. Pearl Studs

This is the Classic Pearl Stud Earring style that proves to be the most popular. A complete fully round pearl is set in what we call a cup post setting as shown for pierced ears. If you look at the backings on our pearl earring posts, we use the finest quality scallop designed heavyweight backs money can buy so the pearl earrings will be enjoyed for a long time. Each post also has a safety notch at its end that acts as a locking mechanism to prevent the backing from sliding off. A pearl stud sits directly on the earlobe and is a staple of any womanís wardrobe as it is the the first pearl earring pair she should own. She can wear it every day or dress it up for fancy occasions. A pearl stud is also the perfect style to complement a pearl necklace to complete a set.
