mimi-stud-earringsA simple type of earring during the late 1800s into the 1900s was needed to work with high collars on dresses and blouses.  We see the stud earring gaining favor at this time. Interestingly, pierced ears fell out of vogue around this time so screw backs then clips had a mid century 1900 surge in popularity. This style is generally hard to date since the ball style has had an enduring popular trend.
