Simple Single Stud Earring

STUDS Studs are small simple earrings that sit at the front of the lobe. They can be any shape: round, square, triangle, butterfly etc., and any material: plain metal, pearl, crystal, diamond, enamel ... They're great little earrings for everyday wear and are often chosen as a starter earring for new piercings as they're less likely to catch on clothing, are comfortable to sleep in, and are also light enough to keep holes from stretching. Several studs can be worn in a row, or on any part of the ear, if you have multiple piercings.
