Buying Guidelines

Diamond stud earrings are the perfect gift whether you are gifting yourself a pair or buying them for someone else. Every woman would appreciate a pair whether they were expecting them or not. This means that you will find yourself purchasing diamond earrings, whether you are a man or a woman.

If a friend is celebrating their birthday and you have no idea what to get them, you could try getting them diamond stud earrings. Since they are so versatile, shopping for them needs a little finesse. If you have never purchased diamond studs before, these few tips while help you make the right decision.

Whether you are shopping online or in-store, these general guides will help you make the right choice:

● Color Quality

I know we have mentioned that color does not matter much when it comes to studs, but the quality sure does. H – J is the ideal color range for diamond studs, and there is no need to go higher than this unless you are feeling extravagant.

When we talk about the quality of the color of the diamonds, you should remember that people look at earrings other people wear from a distance. Since studs are not on people’s faces, going higher than J on the color scale will not make a difference. However, if you want to appreciate the quality of color of gemstones in your collection, then, by all means, go higher than J.

● Clarity Grade

The second guideline is looking at the clarity grade of the diamonds in the earrings. Theoretically, you should be in a position to get I1 grade diamond studs. However, this is not really possible in reality.

If you are making a purchase from an online vendor, there is a chance that they may sell uncertified diamonds. Just because a stone has been marked I1 does not mean that you should take the vendor’s word for it.  Most of the time, the clarity grade may be lower than I1, and the diamonds you receive may have visible inclusions.

● Cut Quality

Lastly, we have quality of the cut of the stone. This is far more important than the two other factors. Cut quality is actually the only thing you will notice in diamond studs.

If you cannot notice the cut of the diamond, it means the quality is very poor. You will recognize a diamonds as having a good cut, when you notice that the diamond is not only of a good size, but it has a good sparkle to it as well.

It is imperative that you choose only diamond studs with impeccable cuts. This will make your earrings more brilliant, this way they will stand out when you wear them.

Avoid diamonds that have a deep cut because they will end up looking smaller than they actually are. 

Other factors to Consider

Aside from the diamond itself, you should also consider the metal used to make the setting of your earrings. Here are some factors to consider:

● Metal Color

The most popular metal used to make diamond studs are white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum. Ideally, your choice should be based on your personal preference, but it would be good to know that gold is cheaper than platinum.

The color of the metal you choose should work well with the outfits you have in your wardrobe.

● Metal Weight

When you go with gold as your setting, you will have the option of 18K or 14K gold. 14K gold is sturdier, but there is more gold in the 18K option.

Platinum is the most durable and as a result, studs made of this metal are more expensive than those made of gold. However, platinum is quite scratch-prone, which makes them delicate.

● Metal Allergies

Do you have any metal allergies? If so, you should consider buying studs that are made of a metal that you can wear comfortably without triggering an allergy. 

Conclusion

Whether you are adding to your collection, or buying your very first diamond earrings, this guide will help you make the right choice. Make sure you deal with a trusted jeweler always.
