Button earrings are stylish old-school accessories that have recently experienced a revival after a long period of trending statement earrings in hoop and drop earring styles. These embellished and diminutive earrings are throwback pieces that have been modernized to go with any look.
These face-framing and timeless accessories that made a name for themselves in the mid-20th century are still going strong today. Pair your button earrings with modern and fashion-forward styles or classically-inspired outfits.
Jackie Kennedy’s Fashion Legacy
First Lady Jackie Kennedy was known for her charm, elegance, and impeccable fashion sense. Her influential style consisted of pillbox hats, Chanel suits, low heels, and monochromatic ensembles.
However, one of the smallest and most impactful details in her outfit were the dainty pairs of button earrings that brought her entire look together. Her immaculate coiffed bouffant obscured much of the earrings, but passionate fashionistas noticed and loved these post-style earrings. Decades later, button earrings have become iconic accessories fit for all styles.
The Renaissance of the Button Earring
Button earrings resemble stud earrings, but are typically larger, round embellished jewellery pieces. They sit directly on the earlobe and frame the face in a graceful manner without drawing too much attention. Today, artisan jewellery designers are producing innovative and practical button earring designs that range in size between dime to quarter-sized pieces. Regardless of the size, button earrings can complement any ensemble, Jackie Kennedy-inspired or not.
Amden Jewelry has produced stunning and extravagant luxury jewelry for over 35 years. They make sophisticated engagement rings, wedding bands, fashion rings, necklaces, and earrings. A team of in-house designers works tirelessly to elevate each piece, including their earring styles, with a splash of sparkling diamonds paired with a range of precious metals such as 18k white, rose, and yellow gold.
In Amden’s designs, a shimmering center stone replaces the classic button earring style. The designer also adds a mesmerizing halo of side stones, which serve to draw your eye to these exquisitely-cut diamonds and their hypnotic light reflections. The resulting kaleidoscopic effect will enhance any casual or formal look.
