Ever since we started mismatching our stud earrings, we started to notice that we liked mismatching a certain stud more than others: the bar stud. While this certain style of jewelry is anything but a statement, we like the minimalistic look (and total ease) of a simple stud. You don’t have to worry about clashing with the rest of outfit, they provide the right amount of bling, and if you happen to have multiple piercings, a bar stud is the perfect accent for the rest of your hodgepodge of earrings. Depending on its length (and how you wear it), you can even make your bar stud like a dangling earring. It’s like wearing hoops but without the worry of them snagging onto something. Check out our slideshow of all sorts of bar studs, from simple silver studs to dangling versions with jeweled embellishments.
