Stud Earrings Buying Guide

Princess Cut, Martini And Round Diamond Stud Earrings Help

Stud Earrings Buying Guide:

Whether you are buying stud earrings for yourself or as a gift to a loved one, you will get a better deal on your diamond studs if you take a little time to do alittle research.

Nothing to beat the elegance of diamond stud earrings.

Budget.

The most popular diamond shapes used in diamond stud earrings are Round Brilliant (perfect circle) and Princess cut (square). Of course, the quality and weight of the diamonds are your most important consideration. The better quality diamonds in terms of carat weight, cut, clarity and color will be more expensive. The best quality diamonds are more brilliant, produce the most sparkle, and they will be more costly. However, if you're on a limited budget, you should focus more on carat weight and cut, which will make the diamonds look bigger and more brilliant.

To get the best value, you should consider well-cut diamonds with a color of G-H or H-I. When mounted they look almost colorless which is what you're looking for in stud earrings. A diamond with a VS clarity is very slightly included and flaws are not visible to the human eye. A diamond with SI clarity is slightly included with the possibility to see inclusions if you have a trained eye and know what to look for. These stones will definitely cost much less than the diamonds of a higher clarity.

The most popular metals used for diamond earrings are:

The Four Cs

If you have done your research, you will undoubtedly have read about the Four Cs of diamonds. These are: Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight. This website has a lot more in-depth information on all four of these available in our Guidance Centre. Which of these matter most when it comes to diamond stud earrings? Clarity.

Clarity is a measure of the number of internal or external flaws or inclusions a diamond has. Flawless diamonds are very rare and therefore more expensive. Unless you plan to buy huge diamonds and invite your friends and relatives to study them up-close, the diamond’s clarity probably doesn’t matter very much. In most cases, you would need a magnifying glass to see tiny inclusions within the diamond anyway. It’s probably safe to say that none of your friends or colleagues will study your earrings with a magnifying glass.

Stud Earrings Back Settings:

SCREW-BACKS

This backing style has a grooved pattern at the end of the post called “Threads” the nut or back of the earring is threaded onto the post and screwed in. Used in most earrings over 1.0ctw

FRICTION BACKS

This is also called a “Push back” this has a notch in the post to prevent the nut or back of the earring from going past the notch. It is also known as a “Butterfly” backing. These are the most common for earrings. Some find these more comfortable than a screw back type setting.

ALPHA BACKS

This secure backing system is a disc with pressure of squeezing the sides together and sliding over the notch to prevent them from sliding. This is a very comfortable back and easier than the typical screw back backing.

LEVER BACKS:

This is a fish hook type backing that passes through the hole of the ear and is secured by a hinged. The stone is then displayed on the lobe or just below depending on how the pierced hole of the ear is. This is a very fashion forward setting style. Used for very large stones commonly.
