Ear jackets? What are they? This is the question we get asked the most. Ear jackets are also known as earring enhancers, earring drops, earring charms or front-back earrings. They attach to the post of any stud earring and add a new element, some colour, some length. In short, they make you stand out.
Put the post of any stud earring through the earlobe, add the jacket, then add the back/stopper. That’s it! If you prefer, you can also wear the ear jacket in front of the earlobe. Slide it straight on to the earring post and then put the post in your ear.
Pro tip: when wearing your hair up, longer ear jackets are particularly flattering!
All our items are made with sterling silver or gold filled components, alongside genuine gemstones and freshwater pearls. Gold filled contains a top layer of gold that is about 20 times thicker than gold plating or gold vermeil.
We occasionally use silver or gold plated components where these will not come in to contact with your ear directly.
You are right to be concerned about this! Studs + Stones was designed specifically with people like you in mind. As you wear your own studs with any of our designs, you don't have to worry about anything unfamiliar going in to your ear. The links on our ear jackets that will touch your ear are made of sterling silver or 14K gold filled (20x thicker gold coverage than gold plated).

The short answer is, whichever piece you love and feel great wearing.
The long answer is that it depends on your face shape. Do you have a round, square, oval or heart-shaped face? For a round shaped face, a longer drop, such as our AVENUE, can elongate the face. For a square shaped face, mid-length rounded drops, such as our HOOPS, can soften the face. Oval shaped faces suit almost any earring, pick your favourite! Heart-shaped faces especially suit a longer teardrop design, such as the Outskirts Maxi. Checkout our guide here.
It's important to store your jewellery properly. We recommend storing silver pieces in zip-lock bags to minimise tarnishing. Adding an anti-tarish tab will also protect your jewellery.
For gemstone and pearl pieces, store these separately and ensure they do not scratch each other in your jewellery box.
Genuine sterling silver will tarnish over time. But it's easy to bring the sparkle back. We recommend Town Talk cleaning products. Often a quick polish with a silver cleaning cloth will remove the tarnish and make your piece sparkle like new. View our range of jewellery cleaners here.
All our earring jackets and stud earrings come on an earring card in a gorgeous, custom pouch, along with care instructions.
Our fine collection comes in a custom drawer box, along with care instructions.
