Perhaps our most unique selection of earrings is found in the Jabel collection of die struck jewelry. These exclusive designs, including Jabel's signature domed diamond cluster earrings and romantic floral jewelry, are truly one of a kind. From our romantic floral carved J-hook earrings to our intricate retro earring jackets, all designs featured in the Jabel collection are crafted using our renowned die struck technique.
The die struck process begins by carefully blending precious metals, which are skillfully alloyed to produce gold that is lustrous, strong, and malleable. The metal is then formed into gold bars, which are heated and rolled in alternating cycles, thinning the bars into sheets with specified thickness. The heating process is critical to keeping the metal soft and malleable, which eliminates cracking and maintains the integrity of the metal. When the desired thickness is achieved, the gold sheets move through a series of steps in which the gold is die struck, compressing the metal into shape. The compression process makes the metal denser, producing the signature strength and durability that sets our heirloom quality jewelry apart.
After completing the die struck process, our floral jewelry still has a few steps to go. Our romantic pink and green floral jewelry, including our J-hoop earrings and sculpted rose studs, move through a unique process of assembly and engraving to achieve Jabel’s signature two tone, 14K pink and green gold designs. First, the roses and leaves must be individually die struck. These elements are then hand assembled by Jabel’s expert jewelers and carefully polished to increase the gold’s luster, without over-polishing or changing the three-dimensional quality. Finally, our expert hand engravers apply intricate details to enhance the realistic quality of the roses and leaves, resulting in beautifully delicate and elegant earrings.
Jabel’s renowned die struck jewelry process is also used to create our brilliant diamond cluster earrings. Crafted using Jabel’s signature domed setting, the heirloom quality of these designs cannot be surpassed. The setting is expertly angled to allow the maximum amount of light to pass through the diamonds, illuminating the stone’s natural brilliance. The setting is also precisely engineered to eliminate dark spots from forming on the prongs, ensuring your earrings remain beautiful for generations to come.
Our diamond cluster earrings are available as both classic stud earrings and elegant lever back dangle earrings. In addition, we can also incorporate colored stones in our diamond cluster earrings, illuminating them with a vibrant splash of color. You can choose from either a precious stone center surrounded by a halo of brilliant diamonds, or a diamond center surrounded by a halo of colorful precious stones.
In addition to Jabel’s floral jewelry and diamond cluster earrings, the David Connolly collection offers an extensive selection of colored stone and diamond earring designs. The breadth of this collection spans from classic stud earrings to bold and timeless precious stone designs. David’s fancy flower cut semi-precious stones are especially adorable when centered in a classic stud setting with the prongs nestled between each petal. Additionally, our romantic gemstone and diamond halo earrings—which feature round or oval gemstone centers encircled by round brilliant diamonds—provide the perfect balance between elegance and sophistication.
Within David Connolly’s vintage jewelry collection, you can find a touch of old world romance without compromising on the quality and craftsmanship of new jewelry. Our vintage diamond earrings come in a variety of timeless styles, including ornate mandala style dangle earrings and vintage stud earrings. Our mandala style earrings feature a round, bezel set diamond or colored stone adorned by a halo of diamonds. The setting is suspended from classic leverback closures, providing exceptional style and comfort.
David Connolly also offers modern, classic, and vintage style pearl earrings. These designs include retro pearl studs framed in a gold rope design, as well as cultured pearls nestled in a free-form teardrop setting with sparkling diamond embellishments. Many designs in this collection offer matching pendants and rings, so you can create a complete jewelry suite.

One of the most beloved categories of symbolic jewelry is, by far, birthstones. David’s famous precious and semi-precious stones make for the perfect stud earrings. At David Connolly, we offer the following birthstones:
June: Cultured Pearl and Created Alexandrite
October: Opal and Pink Tourmaline
December: Blue Zircon
On a universal level, birthstones represent the month in which you were born; these are the stones we assign to each month. However, a modern and more symbolic interpretation of the birthstone allows you to apply the month's stone to sentimental moments in life, making it perfect for symbolic jewelry. Perhaps you want to celebrate the month you met the love of your life—birthstones are an excellent way to remember the special day. Birthstones are also an exceptional way to introduce colored stones to your wedding jewelry, adding a splash of color to classic diamond or pearl jewelry.
In addition to birthstone studs, the David Connolly collection offers an array of symbolic jewelry earrings to celebrate special moments in life. These earring designs include cross, claddagh, two stone, and heart shaped jewelry. Adding an element of symbolism to your fine jewelry enhances the sentimental meaning of your collection.
David Connolly’s colored stone earrings go beyond classic birthstone studs. David’s collection features an array of gemstone designs that can be interchanged with many of his settings, allowing you to customize the designs to your exact specifications. Simply select the design, gold color, and colored stone to create the perfect gift or piece of symbolic jewelry. In our precious stone collection, we offer emerald, ruby, sapphire, and tanzanite, while our semi-precious collection includes amethyst, aquamarine, blue topaz, blue zircon, citrine, garnet, opal, peridot, and rhodolite.
The Jabel and David Connolly collections of colored stones, pearls, diamonds, and gold earrings span an array of designs. Whether you are looking for something vintage, modern, or classic, we offer an exquisite selection of earrings to match any style.
