April is officially the most glamorous month of 2021. It’s got the Baftas, the Oscars and the Queen’s birthday. But there’s another, sparklier reason why April wins the shimmering crown – diamonds. The dazzling gem that April babies are lucky enough to call their birthstone.
But let’s face it. Beautiful as they may be, diamonds are expensive. Not to mention wrapped up in various environmental and ethical concerns. Luckily, there’s an alternative that’s affordable, sustainable and just as radiant: cubic zirconia.
The versatility of CZ means these glittering beauties are used in an array of jewellery. But they’re especially suited to stud earrings. With so many to choose from, we’ve put together this helpful guide so you can pick the right pair for you.
The Classic Circular Stud
Nothing says timeless glamour like a pair of sparkly circular stud earrings. Whether you’re wanting to add a pinch of pizazz to a casual look or dressing up for alfresco drinks, you’re sure to find a pair fit for the occasion.
Here at Solace, we understand that a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t always work. Especially with something as personal as earrings. Which is why we’re proud to offer our stunning cubic zirconia studs in a range of diameters to suit you.
Our clear circular gemstones, for example, come in four different sizes allowing you to be as discreet or as bold as you like with your bling. You could even twin with your little one. Or create a gradient effect with multiple pairs if you have your ears pierced more than once.
The Titanium Stud
We’ve worked hard to ensure that our hypoallergenic jewellery is suitable for those with even the most sensitive skin. Which is why we now offer titanium earrings for our hypersensitive customers who cannot wear stainless steel. And of course, there’s no need to compromise on the ‘glam factor’ either.
For a more robust, edgy style go for our bezel set CZ studs. As the metal surrounds the stone, these earrings are great for everyday as they’re less prone to snagging and can resist a bit of wear and tear.
But if it’s sophisticated style you’re after, our titanium prong set stones come in three different sizes and are suitable for both children and adults.
The Quirky Shaped Stud
Our cubic zirconia studs also come in a range of fun shapes if you want something a little out of the ordinary. Children are sure to love our cute bunny ears studs. Or else there’s our flower shaped earrings which use multiple smaller stones to make up the eye-catching design.
And of course, for the ultimate romantic gesture, nothing beats a heart-shaped stud. Our classic white stones come in both 3mm and 6mm sizes. The larger option is also available with gold or silver posts to suit your or your loved one’s look. Silver is a more mature, elegant option but gold is on-trend and perfect for those with a less conventional style.
The Cartiladge Stud
There are so many to choose from that you’ll be spoilt for choice. We’ve got everything from single square cut stones to angel wings, infinity symbols and ornate helix studs that fit in the curve of your ear cartilage.
So, whatever your style, add a bit of sparkle to your look this April!
