They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend and it is easy to see why! The classic gem is beautiful and elegant. It also looks good in a number of cuts and designs.

So if you are looking to purchase a beautiful pair of diamond stud earrings, there are a few things to be thinking about.

Things to consider when buying diamond earrings

Budget

This has to be your starting point when it comes to planning your purchase. Diamond prices vary hugely depending on the clarity, size and cut. Think about the budget you would like to spend on them. This will influence the designs slightly and narrow down your search. If you are treating your self or a loved one, you may choose to spend a little more. However, if you are looking for a pair for everyday use, you may choose to spend a little less.

Consider the metal you want

Your diamonds will be held in a metal setting, you will need to give a little consideration to the metal.

Firstly, what colour metal are you looking for? The most common is yellow gold, however, over the years white gold and platinum have become more popular. Your choice here will also have an impact on your budget. Once you have decided the colour of your metal, you will also need to take into account the weight of this metal. The higher the weight, the more the price will go up. Depending on the budget you set yourself, you may need to compromise a little. Even so, your earrings will still look beautiful.

Think of the diamonds you would like

For such a clear and beautiful gem, diamonds are actually quite complicated to pick from. From clarity to colour to carat weight and cut, each one affects the price and design of your earrings. Again like the metal choice. What you choose here, will affect the overall price and design of the earrings.

The carat of diamonds is the thing most of us understand, It is simply the weight of the diamond, which is indicated by the size. The higher the carat, the higher the price basically! So the next time you see a celebrity flashing a huge diamond ring, you will know that straight away the budget has been blown! This is before the other things are taking into consideration.

With the cut, diamonds are ranked by how well they get cut. The better the cut, the more radiant the diamond will be, as well as the sparkle.

What shape diamond are you looking for?

Diamonds are cut into a variety of shapes, the most common being round. Before you make your decision, think about the design of earrings you are looking for, With so many choices to pick from, why not check out the range on Abelini Jewellery to get you started.

I personally love diamonds, they are my stone of choice in jewellery. However, I am more for subtle looks with them, rather than the full-on bling look. I just think they are an elegant choice and I can see why they are so popular.
