Substantial diamond stud earrings are, in my opinion, one of the most luxurious things a woman can wear. So understated and slightly modest while at the same time super glam and regal looking. And… in no way do these sparkly stones need to be the real thing! I have a great pair of, what looks to be a little over a carat each, CZ studs that I pawn off as authentic gems every chance I get! Actually, I wish I could. I am far too honest and feel the need to let everyone know that I got them on sale for fifteen bucks at Macy’s. But whatever. They look phenomenal! You, too, can glamor up your lobes quite inexpensively…hopefully you can keep a secret better than I.
Here are a few tips on picking out your earrings:
*Make sure they are a decent size, but don’t go too big. Anything over 1 1/2 -2 carats on your ears can start to look like costume jewelry and will look so obviously fake. Unless you are a celebrity or royalty or you own a ridiculously successful business.
*CZ studs are perfect for every season and can go with just about any outfit. Super casual as well as super dressy. A few exceptions might be: the hippie chic look. Beaded earrings or ones that dangle are far more appropriate for that style. Gym attire: no jewelry is appropriate for the gym.
*Inspect the studs and make sure that they sparkle and catch light the way a real diamond would. Nothing cloudy or dull. Like I said before, Macy’sSteinmart, Nordstrom Rack and other discount stores also carry a wide variety as well as QVCdiamondique.
*For the guys: Cubic Zirconia studs DO NOT make the perfect gift! If you want to make your lady feel special, go with the real thing in a smaller size. Trust me, it will mean much more.
I hope you all have a wonderful Fashion Friday and enjoy your weekend!!! OMG OBSESSED!
