Diamond Stud Earrings

Nothing looks classier than wearing a pair of diamond stud earrings. When you shop for great-looking diamonds, here are a few pointers for what makes a diamond truly worth your money:

  • Size: The best size for stud earrings between 1⁄4 and 1 carat.
  • Color: Anything in the G-H range is good. They'll look colorless once mounted.
  • Clarity: Stay away from anything below “SI2”.
  • Cut: This may be just as important as any other part of the diamond. A well-cut diamond reflects light and adds to its brilliance. Don't scrimp on a good cut!

    Bonus Tip: Most importantly, make sure your diamond seller adheres to the tenets of the Kimberly Process, which certifies that traded diamonds are conflict-free.
