tell me about it...stud

As a child I wanted nothing more than to get my ears pierced so I could wear
oversize hoop earrings a la Kelly Kapowski of Saved By the Bell.

Flash forward to my eleventh birthday when I finally felt brave enough
to feel the wrath of the ear piercing gun, and things changed. It was at that very time
that I spotted Kristin Cavallari {during her Laguna Beach days}
wearing a pair of oversize diamond studs while on the beach with Stephen Colletti.

From then on, all I cared about was studs. Not diamond, mind you; but CZ.
After all, just as a Cheap Engagement Ring does not have to look cheap,
neither do cubic zirconia studs {or any studs for that matter}.

Though my one true stud love will forever be the oversize look;
as I now have three piercings in each ear, my tastes have branched out a bit.

For the summer I love a cheeky motif representative of the season, like the
Enamelled Strawberry Studs; or an unusual, avant-garde aesthetic -
case in point, the Triangle CZ Studs {worn in my third piercing -
just below the cartilage}.

For evening affairs I opt for a mixed metal like the Knot Stud Earrings
{which effortlessly work with any other metal you may be wearing}; or
the always apropos Oversize White CZ Studs.

And for spring...it's all about pastels. Pinks and lilacs are. a. must.

I was 11 as well when Dad took my older sister and me to get our ears pierced. Sadly, I can't wear earrings any more...extremely allergic! (Seriously, I wish!) But I have always loved small studs and loops as "signature" jewelry...

I love studs. They are fun to wear and perfect with everything. Did I mention timeless?

I'm a "late bloomer" getting my ears pierced as well. I got them done at 16 and am glad I did so.

I used to always wear hoops and chandeliers. More recently I've found myself drawn to stud earrings, especially more brightly coloured ones.
