What characterises a modern earring design?

The definition of modern is very individual — modern stud earrings can be extravagant and eye-catching, but many trendy designs are minimalist. Likewise, there are modern borrowings or derivations from classic styles.

If you prefer a modern and minimalist look, square stud earrings with a princess cut diamond are the perfect choice. The elegance of these earrings lies in their simplicity: four prongs holding a diamond with a striking square shape. The material of choice is normally white gold or platinum, which underlines its cool charm and classic elegance. They are a wonderful option for everyday wear in the office, but equally suitable for more formal events. They’re also easy to pair with other square jewellery.

For a more striking look, fashionable designs that challenge or reinterpret conventional ideas are also very popular. The sensational result is shown, for example, by the La Promesse earrings, whose irregular basic shape incorporates diamonds in the marquise cut and in the round brilliant cut.

Which shapes are particularly trendy for stud earrings?

Earrings with an asymmetrical design are currently very in fashion. A well-known example are XO earrings, where the earring for the left ear is clearly different from the one for the right ear.

Creoles are also back in style, but not in the thin, intricate shapes of the past, but rather a little smaller and wider. Mixes are also allowed, for example, modern stud earrings can be combined with creoles for an individual look.

The retro and vintage look will never go out of fashion: for example, the pearl earring, a standard piece of jewellery in every jewellery box 50 years ago is now trendy again — albeit in a somewhat more eye-catching design.

Which diamond cuts have a modern look?

Round brilliant-cut diamonds appear in modern earrings and ear studs — and they remain the most common type of diamond used in jewellery. A proven cut with special brilliance that is also an excellent choice in contemporary designs.

At the moment, unusual cuts that were previously less common in classic jewellery are becoming more popular, such as the square princess cut, the pear shape, the radiant cut, the emerald cut, the round cut combined in a unique way, the legendary marquise cut (which, according to legend, can be traced back to Louis XVI) and, last but not least, oval diamonds.

Quality is particularly fashionable for earrings as well as other jewellery pieces. Individual pieces of high-quality jewellery are considered more fashionable than cheaper costume jewellery. We’re talking about pieces of jewellery that will give you pleasure not only today, but also in years to come, representing a lasting value.
