When buying or looking for ear studs or any diamond earrings, keep these tried and tested pointers in mind:
When it comes to diamond stud earrings, diamond clarity is not going to be very relevant. Clarity, which refers to the inclusions or blemishes in a diamond, cannot be seen in diamond earrings unless one puts the jewelry under 10x magnification. You can also safely pick a diamond in the color grade H-J grades because the lower color is going to be indiscernible when you wear your diamond studs. A poorly cut diamond won’t have much brightness, fire or scintillation. It will look dull and lifeless – hardly the statement you want to make. It is advised to find diamonds that are graded either Good, Excellent or Ideal cut. Pro Tip: You can also pick matched pairs of fancy yellow or fancy pink lab grown diamonds as your choice and go with custom diamond studs, however they will come at a different cost than colorless diamonds.
- A Carat Size That’s Comfortable & Affordable
With diamond earrings, you can save money by choosing lower clarity and color diamonds, which will allow you to budget for a larger carat weight. Remember, you may be able to buy more carats with a less expensive metal type. So choose wisely. Pro Tip: When you are looking at a pair of diamond studs, the “total carat weight” listed is for the diamond pair. So if you are looking at 1 carat diamond earrings, each will be 0.5 carat.
- Ask Questions
Don’t shy away from asking questions. No matter what size of diamond earrings you pick, it is important that you have the best value and best sparkle. Ask your diamond concierge about the best setting, metal color (and gold karat) for your chosen shape of diamonds (if you are sensitive to alloys then platinum will be your answer); and make sure you understand about the kind of backing are provided on the diamond earrings. Pro Tip: If you are not allergic, then go for 14K white gold which is a highly polished and lustrous, bright, white metal. This adds to the whiteness and brightness of the stones.
All in all, a pair (or two) of diamond earrings are a must-have for every one and you don’t need to pay a big price to get the most dazzling pair for your self or for someone you love.
