Different types of stylish sterling silver fine earrings

Stud style sterling silver fine earrings are a refined fashion accessory option. The elegant and understated studs are available in classic round ball designs or decorative motif styles. Some sterling silver studs feature a claw set elevated gemstone, or have a bezel set design.

Some styles are available that have a drop and dangle design and are available in a variety of lengths, sizes and styles. Many dangle earrings are embellished with gemstones or stylish motifs. The earrings are also designed to hang below the earlobe and display a swinging movement.

Hoop style earrings are available in a selection of sizes, styles and designs. Many small hoop styles of the earrings feature a simple and plain design. Other styles are also enhanced with twisted features, diamond cut detail or small detachable charms.

More modern styles of the earrings can also be found, with the design boasting a contemporary huggie style typically feature lever backs that provide a close fit against the ear lobe. The huggie earrings mostly have a chunky design with a short drop. The sterling silver fine earrings wrap around the base of the earlobe for a curved hug like fit. Choose from classic and plain, or pave set gemstone embellished designs.

Fastening alternatives

Sterling silver stud earrings are fitted with a thin post. The stud earrings are secured with butterfly shaped backs that have a hole in the centre. Screw back studs feature a small round metal back that screws on to the thin post.

Lever back fastenings for the earrings have a post that goes through the piercing, and a latch that goes over the post at the back of the earlobe. This type of fastening is typically used for huggie earrings.

For the earrings that drop and dangle these are generally secured on the ear by a slender French wire loop. The end of the loop slides into the piercing, and hangs down at the back of the ear lobe, balancing the drop.

Hoop style versions of the earrings have latch backs that also often include a hinged post.

Snap closure fastenings are attached to clip-on sterling silver fine earrings. This style is perfect for non-pierced ears.
