4 Tips to consider before buying Diamond Earrings

Diamonds are precious metals and when purchasing diamond earring studs, we should know the information so that it can be bought in a best way with good quality. Diamond is mostly evaluated using the 4c's and the 4c's of the quality are cut, clarity, color and carat. Designs range from small loops and studs to large plates and dangling items.

1.       Size does matter 

A round brilliant cut will give the best sparkle but they are little expensive. A princess cut diamond gives a good balance of brilliant sparkle and is inexpensive. Princess cut even looks bigger than a round brilliant cut of the same carat.

2.       Buy Certified diamonds 

One should buy diamonds that are certified from a reliable gem lab such as EGL, GIA, IGL or IGI. One should also be aware that the GIA Grading Scale rate diamonds based on their uniqueness and not certainly on their brilliance and beauty.

3.       Diamond Cut Quality 

An ideal Cut diamond will return about 4 times the white light to the eye of the viewer. It is estimated that about 90% of the diamonds on the retail market today are graded as either poorly cut or fairly cut. Perfectly cut diamonds are very costly. Besides, those cut to unique shapes would be more costly.

4.       Diamond Stud Settings 

A pair of diamond studs are heavy enough to droop your ear lobe, which clearly ruins their sophistication. The secret is to select a setting style that allows the diamonds earrings to perfectly fits in your ear and gives it a dazzling look.  The 3 most common kinds of diamond earring settings are basket setting, 3-prong martini setting and crown setting. Don't purchase a crown setting because it places the precious gem (diamond) too far forward and these will droop your ears.Finally, the 3-prong martini style is a superior setting for earrings because the diamond rests closer to the ear lobe.

Diamond's earring can be availed in various shapes as well as styles which enhance your personality to a great extent, besides making you look more beautiful as well as gorgeous. Nonetheless, out of all the diamond earrings it is pear shaped diamond earring that clearly stands out from the rest as it is a perfect amalgamation of oval cuts as well as marquise which refract light. Buy jewelry only from those stores where quality as well as trust is hallmark besides certified diamonds.
