Moissanite earrings are the ideal accompaniment for any outfit and will last a lifetime. The eternally popular mined diamond stud earrings have found themselves a rival in recent years, in these stunning gemstones that are practically indistinguishable. The moissanite that we source here at Lily Arkwright is all grown in the lab and comes in a choice of Charles & Colvard Forever One moissanite or our own branded Lily Arkwright Moissanite. As both an ethical and sustainable choice, moissanite is an amazing alternative to mined diamonds and comes with none of its harmful side effects. A luxury gemstone in and of itself, it is one of the most durable minerals, but is a much more affordable option compared to the traditional diamond.
Able to be dressed up or down, any of the earrings in our collection would be a wonderful addition to a bridal set and would look just as gorgeous if worn on a wedding day as they would worn out to dinner.

Matching your earrings with your moissanite engagement ring makes for a beautiful bridal set, and would look amazing on your wedding day, whilst also being elegant enough to wear on a day-to-day basis. There are a number of different types of moissanite stone cuts from the ever-popular brilliant round to emerald, oval and pear, all of which we have available in our collection.
Our earrings come in a variety of metal types, in three different forms of gold: yellow, rose and white, and also platinum. All of our jewellery here at Lily Arkwright is Assay Assured meaning that it has been independently verified by an Assay office to be within guidelines and contain the requisite amount of metal. As a centuries old practice in the UK, hallmarking is used as a sign of quality materials, and assures our customers of our excellent standards.

All our earrings can also be set with lab grown diamonds as well as moissanite, which are another wonderful alternative to the mined variety. All of our lab grown diamond earrings come certified to international standards and have exactly the same chemical composition. In fact there is no difference at all between diamonds formed within the earth’s crust and those made in the lab, because the conditions needed to make them (involving intense heat and pressure) are the same. It is only with specialist equipment that any difference can be detected at all, and lab grown diamonds cost on average around 30% less than mined.
The Sena Earrings

Our most popular set of earrings here at Lily Arkwright, are the beautiful Sena earrings.
Showcasing your chosen moissanite or lab grown diamonds with a prong setting, the polished shine of the platinum compliments each stone and creates a stunning sparkle. This classic mounting style means that the gemstone is displayed in its entirety and is able to gather the maximum amount of light. Also sometimes referred to as a martini setting because of its triangular shape, the minimalist profile places all emphasis on the gemstone. This pair of earrings would be perfect accompaniment to The Grace engagement ring, which also features a four prong setting and is exclusively designed to have the greatest amount of sparkle as possible. Often deemed to be ‘the little black dress’ of engagement rings, the Grace is our most popular ring for a reason, elegant and refined it is a gorgeous option. In fact, The Grace was recently reccommended on The Telegraph's piece on The best places to buy an engagement ring online.
The Sena moissanite earrings are so classic in shape that they also pair wonderfully with the vast majority of the rings in our collections and are ideal to wear for any occasion. Available in stone sizes from 2.5mm (0.18k) - 8mm (3.20k) and in various precious metals, these earrings are versatile enough to style up or down.
The Aviana Earrings

This stud style is detailed in a four prong platinum setting and showcases a beautiful emerald cut moissanite or lab grown diamond.
The Aviana studs feature rounded prongs that show as much stone as possible whilst keeping everything secure, and are available in sizes 6x4mm (1.16ct total weight) up to 7x5mm (2.02ct total weight). If you’d like a custom stone size you can always enquire with our JET trained jewellery consultants who are always on hand to assist you.
These earrings are an excellent complement to our Florence solitaire ring, which displays a matching emerald cut stone shape. The ring has a beautiful cathedral setting with a tapered mount that’s let the most amount of light through to create a fabulous sparkle.
The Trinity Earrings

If you’re on the hunt for some princess cut earrings, then look no further than our Trinity earrings, which could be your perfect pair. Our Trinity earrings feature two mesmerizing princess cut moissanites or lab grown diamonds and are secured in a four corner setting. Adding to the geometric lines and contemporary shape that is often associated with the square cut, this mount style firmly keeps everything in place.
Photo Reference: Aster Princess Cut Moissanite Rose Gold Ring
Our Aster solitaire ring is an amazing combination with The Trinity earrings, as it also features a princess cut gemstone. The Aster is set in a plain band but has a twisted mount creating a balanced asymmetry that is both understated and unique, ideal for those who want something just a little bit different.
The Savannah Earrings

The elegant Savannah stud earrings display two stunning oval cut Moissanites, carefully set in a metal of your choice and are available in sizes from 6x4mm (1.0ct total weight) to 9x7mm (4.20ct total weight). The basket style setting is perfect to showcase all the radiance that our Lily Arkwright Moissanites have to offer, and the wide variety of sizes available will leave you spoilt for choice.
Our Isabella ring is another of our most popular moissanite engagement rings, and with the same setting as the Savannah earrings, it's a match made in heaven! The oval cut centre stone sits highly in the tapered mount, which can serve to make it look larger than it really is.
Unsure of your ring size? No problem at all, we offer postable and complimentary ring sizers as well as having free and insured global shipping, giving our customers peace of mind about the condition of their jewellery.
The Valentia Earrings

The Valentia earrings are also set with princess cut gemstones but the main difference between these and The Trinity earring is their setting. Whereas the Trinity has a four corner setting, our Valentia’s are secured in a four prong bead setting instead. Ultimately down to personal preference, the two setting styles come in a variety of metal types from yellow, rose and white gold as well as platinum.
The Valentia's work with any of our princess cut engagement rings and would look lovely with The Aster mentioned previously. They would also look amazing coupled with The Eden ring, which has a twisted vine-like shoulder set. The naturally inspired Eden is encrusted with a melee of diamonds along the band, and can be set with many of the different stone cuts, (although we would recommend having a princess cut stone in this instance to match).
The Vogue Earrings

The Vogue earrings are our only halo set moissanite earrings and have a central round cut stone surrounded by a circle of smaller cut diamonds. This choice makes for a truly opulent set of luxury jewellery, with a four prong mount and friction back posts.

Spectacular with any of our halo set moissanite or lab diamond engagement rings, The Vogue earrings look great paired with either The Cecily or The Amelia rings, both of which have the same round cut centre stone. Our Cecily has a halo of diamonds and a shoulder set which is set with even more conflict-free diamonds, whilst The Amelia has a split shank. As one of the emerging trends for engagement rings, split shank designs have enjoyed a resurgence in the last few years. Perfect for those couples who want an extravagant wow factor and a vintage feel, while still being completely on trend.
The Eloise Earrings

The round cut moissanite gemstones set in our Eloise earrings give off an abundance of fire in their six prong mount, and are made with friction back posts. The major difference between The Eloise and Sena earrings is their mounts, which have six prongs and four prongs respectively. Both made with a martini-style setting, and pair fantastically with the majority of our lab diamond or moissanite engagement rings.
An elegant and timeless choice, The Eloise earrings are an excellent option. All the jewellery we offer is of the highest quality, as is attested by our rating on TrustPilot, you can have a look at some of our five star reviews here.

Celebrity Lab Grown Earrings
Gemstone stud earrings are a timeless classic that will never go out of style. As well as being completely in place on a red carpet, these jewellery pieces are just as at home when worn on a day at work.
Many celebrities have chosen to wear diamond stud earrings over the years and some have chosen to opt for lab grown jewellery as a wonderful alternative. For example Meghan Markle has been spotted wearing a set of lab grown diamond earrings out to a meeting, as has Penelope Cruz who in fact developed her own jewellery collection specially made with gemstones grown in the lab.

Emma Watson is another fan of the lab grown diamond, and when Leonardo DiCaprio came out and backed the Diamond Foundry as an investor (who are actually one of our US partners) lab grown jewellery reached new heights.
