Cabochon Earrings

Faceted stones may sparkle, but some gems only reveal their true inner beauty when polished into a cabochon. Cabochon earrings - cabs, to jewellery designers - showcase the vibrant colour, clarity or lustre of their materials. Unlike faceted gems that are all edges and corners, cabs are gently curved domes. The soft spring green of peridot, the sunset glow of amber and the rich royal purple of amethyst take on new warmth and depth when shaped into cabs. For pure colour and lustre, choose cabochon earrings.

Semi Precious Gemstone Earrings

Sparkle is beautiful, but sometimes you prefer to shine. For day, the gleam of polished gemstones is effortlessly appropriate. You'll find semiprecious gems in every colour from pale moonstone to inky onyx, so you'll be able to match anything in your wardrobe with ease. Even genuine semiprecious gemstones are quite affordable in cabochon shapes; because the shaping process wastes so little stone, the cut is usually less costly than faceting. Clear gems look especially luxurious as cabs, but opaque stones with beautiful colours or patterns are also highly prized. 


The curved surfaces of pearls are natural cabochons. As earrings, pearls have a ladylike glamour all their own; their soft colours and luminous inner glow flatter your face in any light. Whether you wear them in their natural state or frame them in bezels of silver or gold, pearl earrings are a timeless classic.

Glass Cabochon Earrings

While natural gemstones and cultured freshwater pearls make elegant earrings, artisans can match nature's beauty when it comes to lovely earrings. Glass readily forms a domed shape as it cools, making it ideally suited for artists who want to capture its vibrant colours and intricate designs in jewellery. Swirls of variegated colour, rich veins of gold or silver and contrasts in opacity make glass cabochon earrings an uncommon and attractive option. Each pair is a unique example of the glassblower's art, so expect plenty of compliments on these unusual earrings.

Whether you prefer them in glass, pearls or natural stones, cab earrings are as practical as they are pretty. Their smooth shapes fit flush to your lobes for a sleek, streamlined profile that's comfortable to wear through an entire day of phone calls. The ideal accompaniment to a day at the office or an afternoon in the park, cabochon earrings are a mainstay of any jewellery wardrobe.
