Tim Gunn’s Tip on Stud Earrings


Reading over this Marie Claire article had me giggling in a few places. What do you think? Does Tim Gunn have a point about pearl versus diamond studs?


The easiest, most universally wearable earring is the stud. But be cautious about scale: Studs are just that — studs. The circumference should be no greater than ¼ inch. If you’re thinking of an investment, then I vote for pearls over diamonds, because you’ll find quality for about 75 percent less cost. Real pearls possess a great wow! factor, while few things are sadder than a single microscopic diamond.


Well, Mr. Gunn doesn’t mention moissanite, with a guaranteed “wow” factor:
