Pretty stud earrings at Rockabilly Pinup

While the dress and the hair and the make up are all important with the Rockabilly look-there is something to be said for the more subtle pieces of jewellery. Stud earrings for example are super sweet when worn with any Rockabilly outfit. This is especially the case when going for that 'Rosie the Riveter' look. Team your sexy little studs with a tied at the top red bandanna for effortless chic.

Practical as well as super stylish you will be surprised how much attention these little earrings can get. And we are not talking about the Swarovski crystal ball studs that are everywhere at the moment (although these are lovely too). Stud earrings come in a wide range of shapes, styles and sizes. With everything from cute cherries to macho anchors, take your pick form any rocking Rockabilly motif stud earring style available at Rockabilly Pinup. Not sure where to start? Here are just a few to get you started: 

Swallow Stud earrings by Alchemy

Swallows are at the heart of many Rockabilly outfits. They make for gorgeous prints on dresses as well as hair grips and brooches. Vintage and so very chic we would go so far as to say a swallow or two is essential. Swallows are stunning birds and represent a beauty as well as flying free! A pretty symbol of rebellion that will look awesome on all Rockabilly girls! These small studs are so delicately understated- but do not be fooled by their innocence. They certainly pack a punch when it comes to getting that Rockabilly chic just right. You can wear these studs with everything. Whether it is a formal skirt suit and blouse or with a full on halterneck rockabilly dress.  
Bow Belles Skull and crystal stud earrings 
Here you have two of the hottest Rockabilly trends around combined as one. Just as dainty as the swallow earrings is the Bow Belles Skull and Crystal stud earring. Skulls are symbols that really cross the boundaries and will allow you to wear these earrings as a Gothic or Rockabilly accessory. The tiny skulls are just big enough to be noticed, red and white rhinestones complete this set of earrings and make them sparkly. The bows undoubtedly make these pretty accessory a Rockabilly one. However you see these earrings you can be sure that they will be a subtle but noticeable summer statement!  

Red Polka Heart Stud earrings by Sourpuss
 Studs on a stud! You simply cannot get better than these studded earrings. Each polka dot on these enamelled earrings can be felt. These tiny little studs stick up and can be felt bringing a cool rockabilly texture to your ear lobes. The heart shape is also a very quirky Rockabilly motif that absolutely everyone loves! This design is also available in a nautical blue and gold version too.
