I purchased these to wear with my diamond studs. They create a showcase for the diamonds and add a sophisticated touch. They work well with other studs too, but especially with the diamonds. They are great nested together. They can be paired with smaller sizes of other ear jackets, but the somewhat rectangular shape does not work as well with the larger jackets of different styles. However, they are perfectly lovely with the diamond studs and much more versatile and less expensive than the jackets available elsewhere. I love them. They are just the look I wanted.
