We create statement, interchangeable earring drops in gemstones and pearls for the modern, busy woman.
Our earring drops work with any stud earring, so you can add your personality to your classic studs and show your signature style.
I'm Helena Gilmour, the founder and lead designer of Studs + Stones. I'm proudly Swedish but I’ve lived and worked in seven different countries. I’m now based in Singapore with my Crossfit-loving Scottish husband, my daughter who loves dressing up with all things sparkly and my very cheeky little boy.
As a banking professional and consultant, I've spent over a decade in formal offices where women often feel limited to be creative with how we look. I wore classic diamond studs every day, with every outfit.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my studs! But I wanted to add a pop of colour one day and dress them up to feel special for an evening out the next day. I didn’t want to take off my gorgeous studs and replace them with costume or high street jewellery, that’s not my style. I wanted to maximise my existing jewellery box! There was nothing in the market that was this versatile.
So I created a range of earring drops I want to wear myself. Studs + Stones was founded to give life to your studs.
We’re a boutique jeweller and we're building a feminist business. We believe in empowered women supporting other women. We'll pursue collaboration over competition every time.
That's why we work only with female-owned and female-run businesses wherever possible. This applies across our products and operations. From our gemstones and precious metals suppliers all the way through to our branding and photography. Our products and services are sourced from women.
Our earring drops are handcrafted in limited-edition runs. We only use natural gemstones and genuine freshwater pearls in sterling silver, 14K gold filled or 14K gold. No crystals, imitation or plated brass here, that’s not our thing.
We combine classic Scandinavian design aesthetics with Singaporean tropical colours. Our designs are inspired by bold architecture, captivating natural structures and finding the unexpected in everyday scenes.
The woman who wears Studs + Stones is balancing her career, family, social life and passions. She wears many different hats throughout the day. She loves that she can change up her look in a second with Studs + Stones, so one outfit takes her from morning to evening.
She puts on her "power pearls" before a big meeting. She pops on a cute dash of colour to head to school pickup. She slips on a custom gemstone drop to feel elegant for a special dinner out. One customer tells me that she keeps a pair of drops in her handbag, so she'll always feel dressed!
I'm excited to see the impact our products make for our loyal customer circle. Many women come back to us with ideas for bespoke pieces that feel just right for them. I'm so honoured to be part of their personal journey and their signature style.
