Style of Antique Earrings

Before you place a bid on antique diamond earrings, you will want to decide what style of earrings you are looking for.  There are many different types to choose from and some are more appropriate for specific purposes like casual wear, formal wear, etc.  The style of earrings you choose will be based on your personal preferences but it helps to first learn about the different styles that are available to you. Worthy offers the full spread of earring styles and every pair of earrings showcased on our auction platform meets with the highest international quality standards. 


As a Worthy client, you can purchase vintage or antique diamond stud earrings. These earrings usually feature a diamond that is attached to a post. Diamond studs do not have any free-moving parts but instead the diamond looks like it is resting on the earlobe. There are also two different types of backs that come with diamond stud earrings – push-on and screw-on backs. These backs hold the earrings in place so they do not fall out of the ear. Larger earrings work best with screw-on backs.  Vintage diamond stud earrings offer a very simplistic design and can be worn with casual wear and formal outfits alike.


Diamond drop earrings are another type of vintage earring. These are also known as dangle earrings because they feature a design that hangs or dangles from the ear.  Drop earrings can be placed on a post like a stud or they can be hung on the ear with a hook.  There are many styles of vintage drop earrings from simple to complex designs – both of which are popular selections for fashionistas and everyday folks.  Depending on the design of the earring, they can be worn with formal wear and casual outfits.  


Vintage and antique earrings are also available in a hoop style.  However, hoops are a more modern look so they are harder to find in the antique and vintage market.  Hoop earrings are hoops that attach to a post that is placed through the ear.  Many hoop earrings have a snap in the back but some have a French-hook design that features a completely circular loop.  Antique diamond hoop earrings are usually smaller than modern hoops and are not circular. Most designs are diamond-shaped or rectangular.  Vintage hoop earrings do not have as much detail as other designs but can be worn for many different special occasions.  


Yet another enticing option available to you is an antique diamond clasp earring. These earrings can be worn on non-pierced and pierced ears because they clip onto the earlobe.  There is a clip at the back of the earring that is used to secure the earring onto the ear.  This type of earring is a good choice for those with sensitivities to certain metals, or for those who do not have pierced ears.  Antique clasp earrings come in a number of different styles.  Some look similar to stud earrings and others may have more complex or intricate designs.  Usually these earrings work best with formal wear but if the design is simple it can be paired with casual wear.
