Although stud earrings may be worn by anyone, stud earrings work especially well for petite women because they are appropriately proportioned. There's such a variety in stud earrings from plain metal posts to diamonds that everyone should be able to find a stud earring style she likes. Stud earrings can add just the right subtle finishing touch to an ensemble in which you want the clothing or another accessory to stand out.
