Shape Study Earrings

Shape Study Earrings is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Stylish, Comfortable When I put on these earrings, it instantly adds some grown-up class to my otherwise casual look. They're simple and still eye-catching. I love the shape, color, and sheen of the earrings. And, most surprising of all, these are the only earrings that I can wear all day without suffering from irritation or pain. Every other pair of earrings I have (made for sensitive ears) make my ear lobes start to itch and hurt after a few hours...and I have to take them out. Not these! I can wear them all day and tend to forget that I have them on. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic These earrings are subtle but unique. I originally bought a pair a few years ago, and wore them as my default earrings until I lost one of them last year. I've gotten tons of compliments on them--rare, I think, for simple studs. I'm happy that Madewell still carries them and that I was able to get a new pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Day!!! I wear these alone or in my second hole all the time! They are perfect for this madewell jewelry lover. Same gold as their other pieces, the perfect size and minimal but stylish. I lost one after having them for a few weeks and immediately ordered a replacement pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great every day earrings These are perfect for wear every day. They are just big enough to be noticeable and an interesting shape, which makes them unique, but they go with everything. I lost one and had to buy another pair; I'm so dependent on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Go To Earrings These earrings are actually my second pair. Loved the first pair so much and had to have another set. (one was lost) They're worn day & night and the finish has not dimmed. Such a versatile look and so many people ask where they're from. Thrilled to receive my second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-To Gift I buy these as a gift for my gal pals! They're classic, everyday earrings. I wear them almost every single day. I have them in gold, but should probably bite the bullet and purchase the silver too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect earrings I already have the brass colored ones and since I wear a lot of silver, I ordered the silvered toned ones too. I just love them both. They're modern, minimal, and good quality. Totally recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faves I bought these in April (now August) on a girls weekend and thought they were cute. I wore them almost non-stop until I lost one in the ocean. I was devastated and promptly bought my second pair and can't wait for them to arrive. I have sensitive skin, but these do not irritate my ears or discolor. They do not bother me while I'm lying in bed and I'm a side sleeper. I love these studs - so simple and classy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile beauties I'm so glad I got these lovely earrings. They're bigger than I expected, but they're so comfortable. I don't like big earrings -- they feel heavy. I don't feel these when I wear them at all, yet don't think that means they're cheap. They are very well made. I've been wearing them with everything since I got them a week ago! So versatile and interesting. A great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday earring I bought these earrings in store a while ago, but I lost one of them so I reordered! These are great everyday earrings because they match with any outfit. They're comfortable so I don't notice I'm wearing earrings throughout the day too. Quality is nice...add these earrings to your cart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, Simple Earrings I'd been eying these earrings for a while and finally sucked it up and purchased them since I never saw them go on sale. They are simple and I've enjoyed wearing them. They are a little tight to pull the back off, but not a big deal - won't lose them at least!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated and excellent In all honesty, I initially bought these after seeing one of my favorite bloggers wearing them constantly. I didn't think much of them at first, but they've since become a staple in my daily jewelry collection. They're simple, understated, go with everything, and add a different spin to an outfit that regular studs can't match. I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute favorite pair of earrings I bought a second pair because I lost the first ones that I've had for so long. They're my FAVORITE every day pair of earrings. So simple, but noticeable. I get a lot of compliments on them. Pretty sure I'm gonna buy another pair or two just in case I lose my current ones. Totally recommend them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd Pair There is a reason I have 3 pairs of these. Okay, I do tend to lose them while swimming in slot canyons, but that is my own fault for not being able to part with them for a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday earrings!!! I love these - got them as a gift about 8 months ago. I accidentally lost one and after a month of searching I finally grabbed another pair on sale. Can't go wrong with a simple stud in an interesting shape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I ordered these on Black Friday (2014) and just got them today (12/4). I opened them up, and they're everything I was hoping for! What you see on the website is what you get. They were a big smaller than I expected from looking at the pictures, but that was simply because there was nothing in the picture for scale. They fit my earlobe perfectly and have a lovely luster to them. They're perfect for my style -- interesting, but not flashy. A muted statement, if you will. I can't say anything as to how they'll hold up to wear, but nothing about the materials or the workmanship would suggest they'll bite the dust any time soon. I'm looking forward to many years with these guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from artsy and chic I love these earrings. They are simple and wearable for every day, but unique enough to feel interesting and on trend. Great price and solidly made! Made well, actually :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go-to studs for every day I love these so much that I've actually purchased two sets! Wore the first set nearly every day for almost a year and finally lost one. Luckily they were still available on the website and discounted! So I bought them again and love them just as much the second time around. These are durable and comfortable. The posts are just fine on my sensitive ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fell in love with these earrings! I purchased these earrings at the Madewell in Atlanta and they have been one of my favorite purchases! The gold is not too shiny since it has a brushed appearance. They add just the right amount of spunk to any outfit, whether casual or dressy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful These are fantastic earrings. Every time I wear them I get a lot of compliments. They're really unique, and give just a tiny bit of edge to an otherwise blah outfit. One word of warning. If you have sensitive ears, do not wear them for too long. They have some kind of metal in them that irritates my ears if I wear them for more than a day at a time. That's no big deal, but I just thought I'd put that out there. They just turn red, they don't puff up like they do with really cheap earrings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great earrings, terrible packaging. These earrings are great, buy them. In the store. Don't order them online, because they will be shipped in a full size cardboard box that could hold several blouses. Which is a shameful waste of material to ship 2 earrings that could fit in a bubble envelope. Terrible for the environment. The earrings are great, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cute - but a bit large I got these in silver and gold as they are good quality like my other Madewell earrings and they were on sale. They are a bit large - wish they were about half the size. I will keep them though.
Date published: 2016-12-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less Amazing than at first glance The concept of these earrings are really cool. They are really unique and pretty. Unfortunately, I think that they are too close to the color of my skin to show up in the way that I was hoping. I wish they were shiney, not matte. I feel like that would make them show up a bit more and give them a bit more of the subtle glam I was hoping for.
