You don’t see coral earrings as much anymore (environmental considerations notwithstanding) but they were a favoured element in jewelry throughout the last century.

Jewel of the day: Sarah Gunn Skin Textured Earrings

The sleek modernist look of these pierced earrings would dress up any outfit, or go just as well with something casual. By British designer Sarah Gunn, her site notes, “The raw, organic textures on these semicircle studs are designed to coordinate with the ‘Skin’ collection. Handmade from etched brass and plated with 18 carat gold, they have a dramatic slice of black vegetable-tanned leather which runs through the centre. The studs are lightweight and ideal for everyday wear. Ear posts and scrolls are gold plated sterling silver. DIMENSIONS: Approximately 23mm long x 2.5mm wide

These are priced at £130.

Jewel of the day: Ruth Tomlinson Sapphire Cluster Drop Earrings

Sapphire is September’s birth stone, and I’m partial to it for that reason. And also because I love blue. These drop cluster earrings contain 3.66 carats of sapphires accented by diamonds and 14k gold granulation. By Ruth Tomlinson, these sell for £2,200.

Jewel of the day: Proenza Schouler Hammered Metal Earrings

I’m of two minds about these earrings by Proenza Schouler. On the one hand, they are a cool design with an industrial vibe. On the other, I am sure I would probably yank them out of my ears when brushing back my hair. Choices.

These are clip ons made of aluminum and brass, and sell for USD$995.

Jewel of the day: Kataoka Juniper Emerald Earrings

In the 80s and 90s I wore earrings so big, my husband called them ear plates. And he wasn’t far wrong. Now I’m much more inclined to opt for something like these delicate emerald drops by Kataoka.

They note, “A flash of green peeking through the snow, the first sign of spring. The Juniper Earrings feature vivid green emeralds sprinkled with bright white diamonds, set on a French hook for a subtle sway. Romantic, lively, and beautiful adornments.”

These are made in Japan of 18k gold, set with .30 ct emeralds and .10 ct diamonds; they are sold as a pair for USD$2,480.

Jewel of the day: Elizabeth Johnstone CZ Ear Climbers

These are a fun take on ear climbers, which sit on the outside lobe of the ear. Made of rhodium plated brass set with cubic zirconia suspended from chains, they are also a wallet friendly USD$49. From Elizabeth Johnstone, who describes the line as laid back glam (apt), there are matching pieces should you wish to create a set.

Jewel of the day: Januka Yellow Gold and Ametrine Earrings

If you’re tired of plain old, plain old stud earrings, these pretty pieces by Januka offer a little something different. Made of ametrine set in 10 yellow gold, the colour gradation provides some extra visual interest.

These sell for USD$600 from New York’s Love Adorned.

Jewel of the day: Luna Skye Graduated Diamond to Ruby Earrings

These are a pretty take on the classic diamond solitaire earring, with three solitaires, including a ruby. By Luna Skye, these are made with a 14k gold setting hold total ruby weight of .10 carats, and total diamond weight of .20 carats. They are sold as a pair for USD$700.
