How to Buy Diamond Earrings

Every girl needs a pair of diamond stud earrings. It’s the perfect accessory to have because it goes with anything and can be worn on any occasion. They are classy and elegant and will compliment any outfit. That being said, it can be overwhelming to try and pick out the perfect pair. It’s especially difficult if you don’t know where to start. Here are some of our tips for picking out the right pair of diamond stud earrings.

Set a Budget

The first thing that overwhelms people when buying any kind of Jewelry is the cost. The great thing is, you get to determine how much you want to spend. There are options in all kinds of price ranges, but you have to remember that you get what you pay for.

One thing to remember is, diamond studs are timeless. They will never go out of style and because of that, they are a piece of jewelry that you will likely wear your whole life. If you think about it as something you can wear forever and even pass down through your family, then you might be more willing to spend that little bit extra to get exactly what you want!

Pick the Right Size and Shape

Diamonds come in several different shapes and many different sizes and you have to pick out what’s right for you. The two most common shapes are round and princess cut, but you can get earrings in lots of different shapes. Some people have a strong preference about the shape of their diamonds, so it’s something to keep in mind.

Sizes vary as well. The most common size is a one-carat total weight which is the total carat-weight of both earrings. A half-carat is approximately 5 mm in diameter. One of the things that will help you determine size is how many piercings you have and which placement the studs will take. For example, if you have 3 earlobe piercings and are looking for earrings to put in your second piercing, then you likely want them to be smaller than your first set of earrings but larger than the third.

Secure Your Investment

Once you’ve picked out the perfect pair of earrings you might think that your job is done, but there is one more important thing to consider. If you’ve spent a good amount of money on your beautiful earrings, then you want to make sure the earring backings you have are going to keep them in your ear where they’re supposed to be and not on the floor to never be seen again.

There are several different types of earring backs including butterfly backs and screw backs. Whatever you choose to use, make sure that they are always secure and if at any point your earrings feel loose then get a new backing for your earrings.
