Buying Guide for Diamond Stud Earrings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Diamond stud earrings, a perennial favorite, are predicted to be the most popular jewelry gift for women in 2023. If you want to look well, you don't have to worry about things like ring sizes or necklace lengths. Even so, there are still a plethora of choices available to you while looking for women's diamond stud earrings. It's important to think about the stone's dimensions, the design of the mounting, and the quality of the gold used. If you're looking for a set of diamond stud earrings that won't break the bank but will still impress your significant other, check out our buying advice.

Reasons Why You Should Never Wear Mismatched Diamond Studs

For some ladies, the more glitz and glamour the better. Select larger, higher-quality stones if she has a penchant for flashy jewelry, provided this fits within your budget. It's important to remember that larger stones cost more because they are both rarer and more difficult to find in a matched set. Both stones must have complementary hues and levels of clarity if they are to be set together. All of the diamond earrings sold by Diamond Registry have diamonds hand-picked and paired by our in-house jewelers.

Style, Definition, and Precision

When purchasing a diamond, it is important to think about the diamond's color, cut, and clarity. Although, unlike an engagement ring or a solitaire pendant, the color and general clarity of earrings aren't as important. When shopping for matching diamond stud earrings, it's not as important to sacrifice appearance for quality as it would be for a huge solitaire. But the brilliance of diamonds depends on how well the stones are cut, because this determines how much light can pass through them.

Diamond stud earrings with a round or princess cut are the most popular because of their symmetry. These gems are more uniform in their ability to reflect light, making them ideal for use in earring studs. Unlike, however, pear-shaped diamonds, you also don't need to bother about the orientation of these stones.

Diamond Stud Earrings For Women's Precious Metals

Diamonds are the most valuable and sought-after gemstone. They are typically mounted in precious metals like gold or platinum. The most popular is 14-karat gold since it is durable enough to protect your diamonds and shiny enough to complement them. You should think about the shade of gold you want. Since the diamonds in white gold stud earrings stand out so dramatically, every other type of earring is overshadowed in sales. White gold is a good option if you want your diamonds to appear as colorless as possible because it does not affect the color of the gemstone itself.

Earrings with diamonds are not the only option; yellow gold and rose gold are also available. The majority of ladies who wear gold jewelry seem to like them. If you prefer the sunny glow of yellow gold, you might want to think about getting diamond stud earrings set in a simple gold mounting. Only the areas where the prongs or setting grip the stone show any color at all. In recent years, rose gold diamond stud earrings have been popular due to the rising popularity of the precious metal's enticing pink colour. If you're looking for a pair of unconventional earrings, rose gold is a great choice due to its feminine and romantic qualities.

Diamond stud earrings set in platinum are the pinnacle of feminine opulence. In addition to being the rarest and hence the most expensive precious metal for jewelry, it is also the most durable and dense. As a result, it lasts longer and sustains less harm. On the downside, it scratches more easily than other materials. If you are rough on your jewelry or like larger diamonds, platinum stud earrings are a great option. Platinum is colorless and has a more subtle sheen than gold's bright sheen.

Various Fashion Choices

Diamond stud earrings can be worn in a variety of settings, or mountings. Earrings with diamonds from Diamond Registry are always mounted safely, regardless of whether you opt for a basket, prong, or bezel setting. The prong style of ring is very well liked. The gemstones are held securely in place by four prongs, with the facets of the stones exposed to the light. There is a newer style of diamond stud earrings called Martinis, and they only have three prongs instead of four. This setting is popular for smaller diamond stud earrings because it reduces the amount of metal that can be seen and emphasizes the diamond.

Earrings in a basket setting are less likely to get caught on your hair or clothing because the setting is shallower. Because the basket setting has more metal on the sides and the stone is set lower, less light enters the stone. Having more metal means it is also more durable.

Another alternative is to use a bezel setting. Earrings with diamonds set in bezels, which encase the stones in a solid, thin band of gold, have a more modern appearance. These are stylish, but they don't sparkle as much as other options because light is entering the diamonds from above. Gold or platinum settings prevent the gemstone's sides from reflecting light. Since the diamonds in bezel set earrings are completely encased in metal, they cannot catch on or scratch anything and are therefore extremely secure.

The earring back is an essential part of any diamond earring, regardless of the setting. Diamond earrings with either a push or notched back, or a screw back, can be found at Diamond Registry. These two methods work well to prevent earrings from falling out, but some people are concerned about losing their diamond studs. If security is a primary concern, screw backs are the way to go because they can be easily fastened in place like a nut and bolt. A notched back makes it easier to put on and take off (some of us have arthritis and need the help!). The notch in the center of the post secures the back in place when you put one of these together.

Which Size Diamonds Are the Best?

Whether you choose a small or large diamond for your stud earrings depends on your personal preference and your budget. 1 carat and 1/2 carat diamond stud earrings are the best-sellers. Both of these are eye-catching and suitable for casual use. You can find half-carat diamond stud earrings in every color of gold and platinum for $300 to $2,000. One carat diamond stud earrings cost more, starting at around $800 at Diamond Registry and going up to $3,000 for nearly flawless, colorless stones.

Never underestimate the elegance of a simple pair of 14 carat diamond stud earrings. They're big enough to be seen from across the room, but simple enough to leave in all the time. They are understated enough to look good with jeans and a blouse, yet still have the allure of a gem. If your earlobes aren't particularly large, or if you're buying a gift for a young person, 14-carat diamond studs are a beautiful choice. If you like to wear several pairs of earrings in each ear, smaller carat weights are your best bet. They can add a touch of shimmer to more elaborate or dangling earrings.

The flawless clarity of moissanites is the result of their creation in labs, making them a legitimate gemstone in their own right. They shine brighter than diamonds and reflect a kaleidoscope of colors when exposed to light. Many people choose moissanite stud earrings because they are less expensive and have more sparkle than any other option.
