Diamond stud earrings are among the most desired accessories worldwide. They perfectly pair with almost all types of outfits and can get customized to suit your preferences and tastes. Choosing the perfect diamond earrings can be overwhelming as there are countless variables in the market. Here are a few qualities to consider when purchasing diamond earring studs.

Diamond rings aren’t the only piece of jewelry where the 4Cs count. Any accessory with a set diamond will have to pass a quality check for Carat, Cut, Clarity, and Color, including diamond earrings.

  • Carat: Carat refers to the diamond’s weight.
  • Cut: If you want your elegant diamond earrings to sparkle and shine, then the diamond’s cut must be a priority. Out of all the cuts, a brilliant-cut facet appearance will offer the most sparkle.
  • Clarity: Clarity refers to imperfections such as blemishes and inclusions. Since your diamond earrings will be on your ears, it is less likely for people to notice inclusions. For better value, pick diamond earrings on the lower end of the clarity scale.
  • Color: Color is a quality you should always consider when looking for perfect diamond earrings. Diamond facets act like small mirrors, reflecting the objects surrounding them. This means the diamond you choose will assume the color of the metal setting you pick, enhancing the solitaire’s perceived color. Diamond color gets graded on a scale of D-Z, where D is the utmost colorless and Z the most yellow.
You will find diamond earrings in numerous shapes and styles, each with its own appeal. Round and princess cuts are the most renowned and highly priced diamond stud shapes because they’re exceptionally brilliant. Other shapes include pear, marquise, heart, oval, emerald, Asscher, and cushion.
Diamond earring studs and hoops are usually made from one of four precious metals: platinum, white gold, rose gold, or yellow gold. White gold and platinum metals have the same shiny white look and are elegant and chic. These two metals have cool undertones, looking lovely on individuals with cool skin undertones. Rose gold looks romantic and old-fashioned, which makes it look good on individuals with neutral skin undertones. On the other hand, yellow gold looks traditional and classic and works well for warm skin undertones.
