Before buying a pair of earrings, it’s worth considering the size. Here’s a guide to help you make the right choice on diamond earrings.

Diamond earrings are a great addition to your jewellery collection. The simplicity and versatility of diamond stud earrings means that they can be worn for any occasion. If you’re looking for an alternative gift to a ring, then you cannot go wrong with a pair of diamond stud earrings.


One of the first questions you’ll have is “what size diamond earrings should I buy?” It’s an important question, particularly when it comes to getting the size of the diamond stud earrings right. Size is not the only thing that needs to be considered, but also the earring’s shape, colour, and cut. 


We have a guide that can help you make an informed choice for buying the right sized diamond earrings.


What is the most popular size for diamond earrings? 



The most popular size for diamond earrings is one carat, but it’s worth noting that the carat size is distributed between the two earrings. If you’re looking for a one carat pair of earrings, then the earrings will be 0.5 carats each, whereas with two carats, it’s one carat per earring. 


While one carat is the most popular diamond earring size, every person has their own preferences for diamond earring sizes. It’s worth doing your research so that you know what type of diamond stud earrings you want to buy. You want to ensure that the earrings you buy for someone else are comfortable and fit snugly on their ears. 


Picking the right diamond earring shape



Size is not the only thing you need to consider when buying diamond stud earrings, you need to consider the shape too. Depending on the cut of the diamond, you want to make sure the earring shape suits the style and personality of the person you’re giving the earrings to. The three most popular diamond stud earring shapes are princess cut, pear shaped and round.


The earring shape you pick when buying a pair of diamond stud earrings for someone else is also important. You should always think about the four C’s when buying any piece of diamond jewellery, which are cut, carat, clarity and colour. If you’re new to buying diamond stud earrings, then we have a guide that’s dedicated to the four Cs.


Factoring in diamond quality



The quality of your diamonds can play an important role in how your diamond earrings look. This can have a major impact on the appearance and sparkle of the earrings. If you’re looking for a sparkly pair of diamond earrings, then it’s worth going for a higher cut grade.


When buying diamond earrings, you want to make sure they have a clean look. You will also want to ensure that the stone’s flaws are not too visible. It’s something that you need to consider, as it’s better to go for quality over quantity when buying a pair of diamond stud earrings.


Considering the diamond colour of earrings



Getting the colour right is crucial when you’re buying a pair of diamond stud earrings as a gift for someone else. Diamond earrings are available in a range of colours and shapes, these two things can also impact on the price of the earrings itself. 


Having coloured studs is an excellent way of adding some personality to the diamond earrings. If you’re looking for perfection with the diamonds on your earrings, we recommend going for a colourless stone. Either way, it’s down to personal choice whether you go with coloured or non-coloured diamond stud earrings.


Conclusion


Size is an important thing to take into consideration when buying a pair of diamond earrings. You want to make sure that the earrings you buy are not only comfortable, but you also take care of them. Once you’ve bought a perfect pair of diamond earrings, they’ll never go out of style.
