A Complete Guide to Buying Diamond Stud Earrings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Why are precious diamond stud earrings so popular? What is it about these earrings that makes them so desirable? Unmistakably, those are priceless diamonds! When you look at them, they shimmer and sparkle.

This style of earring gained popularity in the nineteenth century and continues to be widely worn even now. Whether a woman wears them to the gym or on the red carpet, precious diamond stud earrings are an essential component of any woman's collection of jewelry. They are the perfect accessory for any occasion. They are so wonderful that a few of the ladies swear they never take them off once they put them on.

Diamond stud earrings, which do not include a wedding band, are an excellent option for a present for somebody who does not already have a pair of matching diamond jewelry pieces. Choose the right pair because they are an everyday essential that you will be able to put on repeat for the rest of your life. This article makes sense of the most efficient way to purchase priceless diamond stud earrings.

  1. Make a Budget

    Whether for yourself or as a gift, diamond stud earrings are a great investment. They should be acceptable overall. Many of our clients buy diamond stud earrings to commemorate Valentine's Day, an advancement, or a child's birth.

    Instead of a dress, studs can be worn as a reminder of the event's joy. Meghan Markle wore studs at her wedding and often since. Because they're making a long-term investment, our clients usually set a budget of a few thousand dollars (yet assuming that you are searching for unimposing studs even fine quality will be less.)

  2. Choose a Size And Shape

    Your favorite stud size? Most famous are one-carat diamond stud earrings, but each has a half-carat stone. "Complete carat weight" refers to the weight of all the stones in a pair of studs, including the center diamond.

    What's its size? A 1 carat diamond is 6.4 millimeters wide, while a half-carat diamond is 5 millimeters. More or more studs? Not always. Huge diamond studs often protrude from the ear; make sure the setting has a good profile.

    More modest jewel studs look great layered with larger earrings and ear sleeves. These usually weigh a half-carat or less.

    Round and princess-cut stones are popular for stud earrings. Studs pivot as you wear them, so choose a shape you like both up and down.

  3. It's all about the quality.

    Many will tell you that a jewel's nature doesn't matter for earrings and that you can wear a yellow diamond with care. Nobody will notice your ears, it's assumed. We prefer to invest in larger jewels for a family legacy that will last generations. Shade H-I and lucidity VS2 or SI2 for wedding bands.

    Buy your studs from a reputable merchant who can trace their origin.

    Match the diamonds in stud earrings. Two random jewels should do. They have little insight into a jewel slice to make an accurate assessment. Look at precious diamonds side-by-side.

    At Diamond Registry, we search every shipment for identical jewels that match in size, color, clarity, cut, and brightness. Our clients benefit. Our gemologists go above and beyond to find each client's perfect match. Choosing round-cut gems is easier because they're more predictable and easier to coordinate. Our gemologists grade and hand-select every precious diamond for our stud earrings, so we don't confirm them unless mentioned (which adds $200 to the price).

  4. The Setting's Design

    The better precious diamond studs are important. Individualize the exemplary outline by highlighting appealing details. You can imitate your wedding band's setting by choosing a style and metal.

    Diamond Registry makes three- to eight-prong round studs. Diamonds get the most light in martini settings. It looks tougher with a four-prong nut. Six prongs surround the jewel. Two prongs update a simple solitaire. Have a preference?

    Jewel earring styles include bezels for all metals.

    Choosing a metal involves many factors. You may want to match your wedding band to your wedding ring or other jewelry. White gold blends in with the diamond if you have many metals on your finger. You can wear platinum for a long time if you're metal-sensitive. Hypoallergenic. Platinum earrings don't feel heavier than gold because they contain so little metal.

  5. Back it up

    The earring back is the most overlooked part of diamond stud earrings because it's hidden. I've never removed a stud. Since studs are most often lost, the leftover earring serves as a token.

    Since diamond studs can be lost, it's easy to choose a replacement. Diamond Registry recommends screw backs, the most durable earring backs. Butterfly backs lose strength and security over time. Adding a back takes longer, but it ensures your diamond stud is secure, so it's time well spent.

    They keep stud earrings from dangling no matter how many drops or coats you add.

    After finding the perfect jewel stud earrings, protect them. Your kids and grandkids will love it.
