Stud earrings make a comeback: Top 10 picks

Goodbye chandeliers, hello studs. The humble stud earring is making a comeback, thanks to innovative new shapes from brands such as Dior. LESLIE KAY LIM rounds up 10 picks:

Dior Tribal Earrings (above)

$620 onwards, call 1800-4159-990 or e-mail contactdiorasia@dior.com for availability

These resin earrings have been spotted everywhere in the fashion world lately, and deservedly so. The two balls - the larger one sits in the back - are so simple in design but also a bit subversive and fun.

Phenomena Cube Earrings

$194, from www.spongeandspike.com

Architecture buffs with a fondness for sharp angles and clean lines can express their style through these silver earrings, which sit like a structure's skeleton instead of the usual solid cube design.

Schlomit Ofir Shell Earrings

$62, from www.pinwheeljewels.com

Channel a grown-up Little Mermaid with these gold-plated shell-shaped studs. The black enamel with gold piping give them a retro, Art Deco feel.

Marilyn Tan Earrings

$380, from Level 2 Tangs Orchard

Texture and materials take centre stage with this pair of titanium-coated natural drusy agate earrings. The rough surface reveals an almost oil slick-like rainbow of colours.

Elizabeth Cole Earrings

£41 (S$90), from www.theoutnet.com

These silver-plated earrings with black Swarovski crystals evoke images of teeth and tyres. It sounds like a bad idea but the shape and lines are elegantly sharp in their execution.

ASOS Ball Earrings

$24.75, from www.asos.com

The simple ball stud is given a fun mechanical upgrade with this pair of steel knot studs. The looping design makes it look like a never-ending zipper twisted onto itself.

Saught Paper Plane Earrings

$89.90, from www.saught.com.sg

At first glance, these gold-plated earrings simply look like a geometric configuration of triangles. But the sweet and subtle design is actually made up of a trio of tiny paper planes.
