Dainty Buttercup Diamond Studs
Delicate Victorian-inspired buttercup settings hold a pair of twinkling diamonds aloft in this pair of charming stud earrings, perfect for everyday wear. This style of setting enjoyed popularity in the Victorian era and a revival in the 1940s, with these earrings dating to the mid-twentieth century.
Airy, feminine, and floral, we love these as a classic look in an earlobe, or given a sweet little edge in any one of your cartilage piercings (see the last photo for an example in a conch piercing).
