Moissanite Stud Earrings

Updated on September 6, 2012

Moissanite, a Great Alternative to Diamond Stud Earrings

Every girl should have a good quality pair of sparkly moissanite stud earrings in their jewelry wardrobe as a go to piece. They'll never go out of style and are wearable with anything from jeans to the most formal ball gown. They'll look and make you feel fabulous.

Moissanite stud earrings will out sparkle your average diamond studs and are priced more reasonably, which makes moissanite the perfect gemstone for a classic pair of stud earrings. Moissanites also beat out the average CZ in durability and beauty. CZs may be cheaper, but they also are dull and flat when compared to moissanite and diamond.

      On the topic of fashion advice for women buying diamond stud earrings, there are some well kept secrets about the setting styles and how appropriate they are for fitting your ear. Depending on the setting, a diamond stud can either droop downward, or sit smartly forward on the ear lobe. It is a shame to invest in a fine pair of diamonds that have a sloppy appearance when worn.

      Pearl stud earrings are as understated as they are elegant. They are low-key and beautiful and not loud accessories at all. They are a great complement to any wardrobe, be it a stylish gown or a simple blouse and jeans. Worn day or night, pearl stud earrings are a wonderful fashion statement. It is also the kind of design that a woman of any face shape can carry off well.
