Your Ultimate Guide To Choosing Diamond Stud Earrings

Alright, ladies, let’s talk diamonds! With a gazillion diamond styles out there, we get it – decision-making can feel like a’lil overwhelming. But hey, don't sweat it. We've got your back!

There are two types of girls: those who rock hoop earrings and those who prefer the classic elegance of studs. If you're in the stud camp, welcome – you're in good company!

Guess you're already craving that subtle yet striking sparkle? Just stick around. We're about to dive into how you can snag the perfect pair of diamond stud earrings to match your vibe!

How to choose the perfect pair of diamond studs? 

Now, before we get lost in the dazzle, let’s break down the basics of finding your dream diamond studs:

Consider your face shape: 

Just as diamonds come in various shapes, so do faces. And just like choosing the perfect hairstyle, picking the right diamond shape can work wonders for your look. Got a wider face? Opt for elongating shapes like ovals or marquise cuts. Longer face? Stick to symmetrical shapes like rounds or princess cuts. It’s all about flattering those features, ladies!

Choose the right diamond size and shape

When it comes to diamonds, size does matter – but it’s not just about bling. Your studs should complement your face, so go for sizes that feel just right. However, when it comes to shape, the most popular choice is the brilliant round cut, as it is the most sparkly. If you’re looking for something unique, consider other shapes such as the oval, marquise, or pear. So, whether you’re rocking diamond solitaire heart stud earrings or a cute pair of heart stud earrings, let your personality shine through!  

And if you wanna decide to choose Diamond Shapes By Brilliance here's the list: 

Most Brilliant: Round 

Exceptionally Brilliant: Oval, Marquise, Pear

Highly Brilliant: Princess and Cushion 

Brilliant: Emerald and Asscher 

Select the right metal setting

The metal setting of your diamond stud earrings is just as important as the diamonds themselves. Whether you’re into classic yellow gold, sleek white gold, or high-end platinum, your choice sets the tone for your style. So, pick wisely – your studs are counting on it!

Settings that maximize sparkle

Whether it’s a simple three-prong setting or a dazzling halo of diamond melee—less metal means more sparkle. 

A setting with three of four prongs would be an eye-catching choice just like our Prong-Set Round Diamond Martini Stud Earrings.

When it comes to smaller diamonds, pick a halo of diamond melee for extra oomph! Or, opt for a sleek white metal setting to enhance their natural brilliance. With Angara, you can customise them just the way you want!

Consider the diamond clarity and colour

No diamond talk is complete without a chat about clarity and colour. When it comes to sparkle, clarity is king. Even tiny blemishes can dull the dazzle, so aim for diamonds with minimal imperfections. As for colour, think I or J grades for that coveted sparkle. But if money's no object, why not go all out with Grade D – the holy grail of colourless diamonds? It's luxury at its finest!

Consider the 4 C's:

Remember your ABCs? Well, in the diamond world, it’s all about the 4 Cs: Colour, Cut, Clarity, and Carat. Aim for cuts that make your diamonds glister, colours that catch the eye, and clarities that leave you speechless.

For those who aren't much acquainted, let’s break down the bling lingo:

Diamond Color: it's about how colorless a white diamond is. The less colour, the better. 

Diamond Cut: it's all about how well your diamond was cut. A good cut means maximum sparkle – we’re talking disco ball levels of shine!

Diamond Clarity: it's about how flawless a diamond is – the fewer blemishes, the better. 

Diamond Carat: This one’s easy – it’s all about weight. The bigger the carat, the bigger the bling. We’re talking size matters, ladies!

Let's decode the diamond details now, shall we?

Cut: When your studs are beautifully cut, they'll dazzle from every angle, even from across the room. The brilliance of a diamond hinges largely on its cut. A well-cut diamond dazzles brilliantly in jewelry, while a poorly-cut one may appear lacklustre. This is especially crucial for diamond stud earrings, as they are often viewed from a distance. To ensure they maintain their stunning allure even from afar, we advise opting for diamonds with a cut graded as Very Good or Excellent.

Colour, Clarity, and Carat: Now, onto the nitty-gritty. For your diamond studs, aim for colours in the G, H, or I range – that’s where the sweet spot of sparkle lies. When it comes to clarity, think VS2 or SI1 – flawless without breaking the bank. And as for carat weight, it’s all about balance. Start by picking your perfect cut, colour, and clarity, then go for the biggest carat your budget can handle. It’s like finding the perfect recipe – just mix and match till you get it just right!
