Mother’s Day Jewelry: Hook Mom Up With a Sexy (Diamond) Stud

Yes, yes there are many definitions of stud to consider, and only you know which one the mom in your life will most appreciate (no judgment here!).

But assuming requests for diamond stud earrings are at an all-time high in the days leading up to Mother’s Day (May 12—that’s this Sunday), I’ve curated some options that come at the category from all angles.

Once I took the classic round-brilliant diamond design off the table, a number of options presented themselves. All tick the “diamond stud” box but offer something a little less basic and a lot more compelling,

For example, I love how Ana Khouri’s Carmy earring cleverly gives the butterfly back pride of place. Perfect for the mom who walks to her own drumbeat and is always looking for ways to #resist.

CBD-infused this-and-thats seem to be having a moment, but I’ll bet the earrings below will “leaf” her with a peaceful, easy feeling, too.

And if they have to be diamond studs as in, a matched pair of big honking diamonds set in metal? Fine—as long as they’re Asscher cuts.
