Earrings With Gems For Sale on 1stDibs

There is a broad range of earrings with gems for sale on 1stDibs. Frequently made of Gold, 18k Gold and Yellow Gold, these items were constructed with great care. Our selection of items includes 2 vintage examples as well as 23 contemporary versions. Our collection is diverse and broad-ranging, and pieces in stock date back to the 20th Century while others were produced as recently as the 21st Century. There are many different pieces in our collection of earrings with gems to choose from, but Artisan and Contemporary earrings with gems are of considerable interest. Sarosi By Timeless Gems, Jay Rawat and Leon Mege each produced beautiful examples of these items that are worth considering. Any of these pieces can lend versatility to your look, but Diamond versions, from our inventory of 14, are particularly popular. Today, if you’re looking for oval cut earrings with gems and are unable to find the perfect match, our selection also includes round cut and cushion cut alternatives. There aren’t many items for men in our collection of earrings with gems, as most of the options available are for women.

How Much are Earrings With Gems?

Prices for earrings with gems can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, these accessories begin at $120 and can go as high as $192,952, while earrings with gems, on average, fetch $2,340.

Finding the Right earrings for You

In the United States, ear piercing didn’t really become popular until the 1950s and ‘60s, but our desire for a dazzling pair of vintage earrings has deeper roots than that. In fact, wearing earrings actually goes back thousands of years, and you can find many tangible connections between now and then in how we continue to talk about these treasured accessories.

Women wore ornamental earrings — studs and hoops at the very least — in Ancient Egypt, which is home to mines that are among the earliest sources of emeralds in the world. Emerald earrings are highly prized today, and their quality lies in their rich, saturated color. The highest-quality emeralds are green or bluish-green. Earrings worn by the affluent in early Roman civilizations were set with precious stones such as diamonds and pearls, and a clean-looking pop of pearl on the front of the lobe is as timeless as ever. Hoop earrings are imbued with symbolism and cultural significance for many, and on view in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Ancient Near Eastern Art Gallery is a pair of simple gold hoops from Mesopotamia dating to between 2600 and 2500 B.C.

Today, ear piercing is very popular all over the world, and, as a result, it is difficult to overstate how much everyone pines for a good pair of earrings — modernist drop earrings, glamorous Victorian hoops, geometrically complex chandelier earrings, you name it. Sure, jewelry trends and the fashion darlings of social media come and go, but earrings have a staying power that seems impenetrable: The still-strong love affair between British royals and Cartier earrings is more than a century old, glossy 1970s hoops from legacy houses such as Bulgari and Van Cleef & Arpels remain the statement makers they’ve always been and although people have been stacking earrings for many moons, the allure of an expertly mismatched stack of charms and studs still feels fresh and new.

While there is no shortage of modern earring designs to choose from, the classics, like coral earrings, Art Deco–style earrings and diamond drop earrings are still heavy hitters. On 1stDibs, find a wide range of antique, new and vintage earrings today.

Questions About Earrings With Gems
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    The rarest gem is painite. Since its discovery in 1951, there have only been two specimens known to exist.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, natural star sapphires are real gems. The star-like reflective effect comes from inclusions present in the gemstones. Keep in mind that some jewelry features man-made star sapphires rather than natural stones, making it important that you purchase from reputable jewelers or online platforms. On 1stDibs, shop a variety of expertly vetted star sapphire gemstone jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, the cobalt spinel gem is extremely rare and is one of the most desirable gems in the industry. It is found in a single mine in Vietnam and is one of the few gems that occur naturally. Shop a collection of expertly vetted gems from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • An ear clip is a type of mechanism of attaching earrings to your ear. These are typically omega-backs but without posts. Ear clips are perfect for women who do not have pierced ears.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Also known as “huggies,” sleeper earrings are small hoops that don't have sharp posts with a separate backing. They're called “sleeper” earrings because you can sleep in them comfortably without a post jabbing into the back of your ear.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    An earring jacket fastens to the post and, like a jacket, wraps around the bottom of your ear. They don't serve a purpose other than adding another fashionable element to the earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Leverback earrings have a curved edge and no backing. They typically latch behind the ear like a fishhook. Only people with pierced ears can wear leverback earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    Halo earrings contain a large diamond in the center with accent diamonds in a halo around the stone. Not only are these earrings timeless, but the style can help increase the shimmering of the stone.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Huggie earrings are miniature hoops that appear to hug the earlobe. Huggies range from .5' to 1.5” in diameter. These dainty earrings are perfect for everyday wear.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    A statement earring is bold, eye-catching and typically colorful. Statement earrings add character to any outfit. They're flashy, big and sculptural and can even drape down to rest on the shoulder. Trendy statement earrings are made from gold, silver, colorful glass beads, shells, feathers and more. Shop a collection of vintage and modern statement earrings from some of the world’s top jewelers on 1stDibs.
  • French wire in earrings is a type of back that features a curved hook that goes through your ear. The hook is open at the back, and the earring can sit on the earlobe without an earring back.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A very common Indian earring is the jhumka. These ornate earrings are traditionally bell-shaped and feature a gleaming gilded design. They are often adorned with stones to add eye-catching detail. On 1stDibs, find a collection of authentic jhumka earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    How to wear Cartier earrings depends on your personal preferences. Small hoops and studs can balance chunky statement necklaces, while dramatic drops and oversized hoops can become the bold focal point of an outfit. Shop a variety of Cartier earrings on 1stDibs.
  • A screw back is a type of closure for earrings wherein the post is fastened to the back by screwing it. This type of back is usually used for earrings that are worn everyday, children's earrings, or high value earrings as this type of back tends to be more secure.
    1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    A screw back earring is a type of earring where the back screws into place as if it were a nut over a screw. Because they must be twisted off, they’re more secure for high value earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Creole earrings mean a variety of hoop earrings. These hoop earrings do not have uniform thickness throughout and are elongated in shape.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    Round earrings are called hoops, indicating the circle around the ear reconnecting on the other side of the piercing. It is almost impossible to overstate how popular hoop earrings are today. They are routinely seen adorning the ears of high-profile women, ranging from Michelle Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B. Find a variety of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Yes, diamond hoop earrings can be in style. The choice to wear diamond hoop earrings is really a matter of personal preference.
