What is a good size for diamond stud earrings?

There's no "good" or "right" size for a pair of diamond studs. But the average carat weight most people choose for diamond stud earrings lies somewhere between 1-2 carats in total.

Keep in mind that the carat weight of a pair of solitaire stud earrings is the total weight of both earrings, not just one. For example, a pair of 2 carat solitaire studs indicates that each stud earring weighs 1 carat.

Some solitaire diamond studs can look fairly small, especially if you've chosen sparkling round brilliant diamonds as your desired shape. Round brilliant diamonds have superior sparkle to other diamond shapes, but other shapes can make your diamond stud earrings appear larger without increasing carat weight.

To get the most for your money, pick diamond studs that are oval or pear-shaped. They have larger tables and can look bigger than other diamonds of the same carat weight. Fancy diamond shapes are also less expensive than round brilliant diamonds. And if you can, opt for a lab created diamond. Lab created diamonds are more affordable and can save you money without sacrificing quality.

How Much Are Diamond Stud Earrings?

The cost of diamonds in general is hard to say. Diamond prices and diamond quality are based on many factors, with the most important being the cut, clarity, color, and carat weight of the diamond.

At Clean Origin, we make picking out a pair of solitaire stud earrings simple for you. You can choose between two different types of diamond quality. The round brilliant diamonds solitaire earrings are available in yellow gold or white gold. The standard pair of earring comes in 14K or 18K gold and have a minimum SI clarity and I-J color grade range. The high quality round studs come in 14 K or 18K gold and have VS clarity and EF color grades. Both the standard and high quality options are available up to 2 carat total weight.

You may find our selection of diamond stud earrings less expensive than the average jewelry retailer. That's because all of our diamond studs are crafted with ethical lab created diamonds. Lab created diamonds are real diamonds that just happen to be 20-40% less than mined diamonds of similar quality.

What Is the Best Setting for Diamond Stud Earrings?

For solitaire diamond studs, setting options range from 3-4 prong, bezel, and even halo settings. 3-prong settings can give your diamond stud earrings a triangular appearance, which is fine that's a look you like. And thanks to the extra prong, a 4-prong setting adds a bit more security for holding your diamond in place.

Bezel and halo settings are also protective settings, as they can prevent yoru diamond stud earrings from catching on clothing. If you choose studs with corners like a princess cut, the corners can potentially chip if they catch or snag--unless they're protected by the setting.

Clean Origin gives you the option to choose between a classic pair of sparkling round brilliant diamonds in a halo setting style, 0r 4-prong diamond stud (in various diamond shapes) settings in our solitaire style.

We also offer 4-prong stud earring settings for oval diamond stud earrings and emerald cut stud earrings.

For cluster diamond stud earrings and other fashion studs, we have various settings to choose from. Halo stud earrings in unique fancy shapes, gorgeous flower stud earring settings, and eye-catching colored diamond stud earrings await you in our diamond earring inventory.

All the setting styles offered by Clean Origin are deemed safe enough to protect your earrings, so you are free to buy diamond stud earrings you love without worrying about vulnerability to your diamonds.

Our diamond stud earrings are available in high-quality 14k and 18k yellow gold, white gold, or (in some cases) rose gold. Some earrings may only have availability in a certain precious metal. You can also contact a jewelry consultant and ask if the stud earrings are available in your choice of precious metal.

How to Clean Diamond Stud Earrings

You can buy the best diamond stud earrings in the world, but they will still need maintenance over the years, especially if you wear you diamond earrings often. If you're wearing your stud earrings daily, you should clean them every other day.

Earrings and engagement rings are the jewelry pieces that get the most wear. Dirt, sweat, and daily dust settles on these pieces. If not cleaned well, the dirt can build up and dull your diamond stud earrings.

To clean a pair of diamond earrings, you'll want to fill a small bowl with a solution of dish soap and warm water. Using soft bristled brush (like a toothbrush), gently brush away any dirt. Make sure to get between the setting, as dirt can build up underneath the diamond, depending on the setting style. You can opt for a quick clean, or soak your earrings for 20 mins if they need a deep cleanse. Dry with a soft cloth.
