Diamond Stud Earrings – Perfect for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! Within the next two weeks you want to be impressing your sweetheart with a thoughtful gift, perhaps a beautiful piece of jewelry is in the cards? Welcome back to the Stewart Kuper Jewelers blog where we give you all the info you need, from shopping for diamonds to seeking out repairs. This blog is no different, we are going to talk about one of the classics of jewelry – diamond stud earrings and why they would make a great piece for your sweetheart.
Briefly, why Valentine’s Day? What made February 14th a day for lovers to celebrate?
It may come as no surprise, but history is actually fairly divided on this. There are a number of St. Valentine’s and just as many stories for how it came to be that lovebirds celebrate each other on February 14th. One of the most compelling is that English poet Geoffrey Chaucer invented the day and purpose back in the 14th century! In his poem “Parliament of Foules” the day is known as the day people (and birds!) come together to find a mate.
Regardless of how it came to be, there is no denying that here in America we recognize it as a day especially for the celebration of our romantic love! It’s much more pleasant than visiting a saint’s skull in Rome (which you can do! It’s on display at the Basilica of Santa Maria).
Stud earrings are defined by the simplicity of their design from the front. The jewelry looks like it is floating in place, without a visible connection. The stud is on top of the post which goes straight through the earlobe (or ear) and is then held by a friction back called a clutch. The stud itself has a diamond or other gemstone mounted on the post. The most popular version of stud earrings features singular diamonds.
So, why diamond studs? Diamonds are of course the pinnacle of gemstones. Diamonds represent the eternal, the durable, and the rarity of a love like yours.
What makes diamond stud earrings a great Valentine’s gift? They are a piece that works with everything. With their classic simplicity, they never offset or clash with any other piece of jewelry or outfit your sweetheart may wear. Diamond stud earrings are the perfect piece to see regular wear, whether for a night out, a day full of meetings in the office, or a family gathering. They are the quintessential piece of jewelry, and the diamonds in them represent your love perfectly.
Diamond stud earrings are just the thing to wow your darling and set their eyes dazzling when they open the gift.
