Many women own a simple pair of diamond stud earrings. This is one of the most classic pieces of jewelry in a woman’s wardrobe. While it’s true that a simple pair of diamond studs can go with any outfit, owning jackets to go with these studs can make these even more versatile. Jackets were originally designed to fit around the diamond studs, adding size and detail to the earrings. Today, however, there are also jackets available that add a dangling element to the earrings.
Jackets for diamond studs are available in a wide variety of styles to create many different looks. Traditionally, jackets were made from diamonds, but today, you can find these in many different gemstones, too. You’ll also find these in different sizes, to allow you to choose how large the earrings will be once put together.
When it comes to choosing jackets for diamond earrings, there are several things you’ll need to consider in order to choose the best jackets to match her earrings.
- What size and shape are the original studs? If you are purchasing jackets that fit around the studs, it is important to ensure the studs will fit comfortably in the center hole of the jacket. Most jackets are designed for round diamonds, but you can find jackets for princess cut diamond studs, too.
- What metal is the original setting? Choose a matching metal for the jackets, so that when the two are worn together, these appear to be one set of earrings.
- What stones will work best with her wardrobe? The most obvious choice you’ll make when selecting earring jackets are the stones. You can choose traditional diamonds, colored diamonds or colored gemstones. Consider her favorite colors, her birthstone or the gemstones she wears most often.
- How do the two look together? If you can take the diamond studs shopping with you, you will get the best idea of how the studs will look with available jackets. This will make your choice easier, but is not necessary as long as you know the size of the studs and the required metal.
Earring jackets make a great gift for any woman who owns a pair of diamond studs. Most women would love to have multiple pairs of jackets to allow them to create many different looks with their classic diamond earrings. This is a gift that is sure to please and one that is sure to be used over and over again.
