When it comes to picking the perfect pair, there are several factors to consider. First, let’s discuss why diamond earrings are an excellent choice for yourself or as a gift, then let’s dive into how to pick the perfect pair.
Diamond earrings never go out of style. At the same time, they didn’t become more accessible to the public until the 1860s. The improved gem-cutting techniques were developed in the 16th century and reserved for the wealthy. Because of their long-standing reputation, they are a sign of elegance and status.
As the gem-cutting industry has grown and evolved, diamond earrings are available to more people than ever before. At Clean Origin, we take that even further with our lab grown diamonds with all the elegance and status of a natural-grown diamond.
Choose your perfect pair today. They can complete your wardrobe and add that extra glamour you’re looking for with a note of elegance. With this in mind, diamond earrings often make one of the most beautiful and agreeable gifts for any of your family and loved ones.
Whether buying a pair of diamond earrings for yourself or a loved one, there are a couple of tips and tricks to help you know what earring style would best fit. The three most important things to consider when choosing a pair are style, brilliance, and face shape.
While you can add several styles and additional embellishments to your earrings, the most important thing to decide first is the diamond shape. Round diamonds are the most popular, while many prefer princess cut.
You will need to choose a metal finish such as yellow gold or white gold. Some diamond earrings even come in two tone or tri tone metal options, along with multi color diamonds (colors like pink, yellow, blue, brown, and even champagne). We do not recommend setting diamonds in sterling silver or stainless steel.
After that, you’ll know better how you want the rest of the earrings to look, whether simple diamond stud earrings or a dazzling drop.
Diamond earrings can accentuate features and distract from others. One of those features to take into consideration is face shape. You can add an elongated look with oval and emerald-cut diamonds for wider faces. For longer faces, symmetrical diamond shapes such as round, princess, or Asscher cut to add a wonderful spark of glamor. It is best to decide on shape before shopping for accessories like earring jackets.
To clean diamond earrings, you will need a small bowl filled with warm water, some gentle soap, a soft brush, and a soft cloth. Start by soaking your diamond earrings in warm, soapy water for about 20 minutes. After they've soaked, gently scrub them with the soft brush and rinse. Pat them dry with the soft cloth, then set them out to finish air drying.
The cost of diamond earrings depends on several factors. To begin with, you'll have to consider the diamond shape (round brilliant diamonds generally cost more than fancy shapes). Next, you should know that the larger the diamonds in the earrings (carat size), the more expensive they will be.
You'll then want to consider the color, clarity, and the type of metal they are set in. If you want diamond earrings with the least amount of color possible, they need to have a better color grade which means you will pay more. If color grade doesn't matter as much to you, then you can go with a lower grade, save a bit of money, and still get a beautiful set of studs.
Clarity matters most if you're going to buy a pair of diamond stud earrings with a shape that doesn't hide inclusions well. For instance, a step-cut diamond like an emerald and Asscher cut allows you to see inside of it. This means inclusions on these types of diamonds are more obvious to the naked eye. However, when it comes to round, oval, cushion, and even shapes like a pear or princess cut, small inclusions are not so obvious.
If want a pair of earrings with a step-cut diamond, then consider a better clarity rating. If you want a classic round, you can save yourself some money and choose a pair of earrings with a lower clarity rating.
The metal your earrings are set in will also affect the price. Platinum is going to be expensive, whereas white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold will be more affordable.
And beyond the price differences between each metal, the color of the metal you choose can also make your diamond look whiter and brighter. This is especially helpful if you choose a diamond with a lower color grade. A white metal like platinum or white gold will make your diamonds appear whiter without the added cost of a D-F color grade.
Lab Grown Diamonds Are Competitively Priced
One final point to keep in mind about how much diamond earrings are (no matter if they're diamond hoops, studs, or drop earrings) is that lab grown diamonds are 20-40% less expensive than natural diamonds. So when you buy lab grown you can be sure you're getting the best price on truly ethical jewelry.
The best way to tell if diamond earrings are real is to take them to a jeweler. A jeweler can analyze your diamonds with a loupe and also run them through different tests that can tell if they're fake. One example of a test a jeweler can conduct on diamond earrings to tell if they're real is the UV light test.
You can try to test your diamond at home with methods like a float test, or with a diamond tester. But the best way to determine if your diamond is real is by taking it to a reputable jeweler.
When you shop for diamond earrings, you may be looking for everyday fashion studs or something formal. You may even be looking for a Valentine's day gift or something for mom.
