Diamond Studs To Bling into the New Year

Before purchasing the diamonds, it helps if you have enough knowledge and information regarding 4 Cs crucial to purchasing any loose diamonds or diamond jewelry pieces: carat, cut, color and clarity. There are other advanced characteristics as well such as enhancement and fluorescence that make the difference to the appearance. Understanding the characteristics of each diamond helps you make a better choice when making the diamond investment.

Well chosen piece of jewelry can complement your beauty and brighten up your face. A good pair of earrings is essential accessory to the wardrobe of every woman. Diamond studs look elegant, no matter what the size and style. They are also easy and small to use and store. These days, diamond studs are made in different styles so as to suit all the age groups and ethnic backgrounds.

Diamond earrings also make a great gift, and convey the taste and individuality. These earrings suit both the sexes equally, and are loved by men as well as women and are always in fashion. You can wear them with all kinds of dresses, and they are versatile enough to match with jeans and cocktail dresses equally.

Diamond stud earrings are of two types; clip-on for the ears that are not pierced and for the pierced ears. Four prong baskets is the most common setting for the diamond studs style, and it is most preferred setting because it makes the loose diamond seem larger while still holding it securely.

If you already have a diamond ring or pendant, choose the diamond studs of the same color so that they complement each other. Purchasing diamond studs earrings from a non reputable dealer is simply wastage of money and time for the sub-standard quality of diamonds.

Choosing the right pair can be quite confusing and tricky, so you should start by evaluating the wearer’s face and skin tone. For women with thin face, round cut diamond studs are a better choice, and for women having slightly broader face, princess cut pair will suit the looks. You also must consider the metal setting for the diamond studs. Platinum or white gold are usually the preferred choices as they set off a cool skin tone, but yellow gold harmonizes well with the warmer skin tones.

As with any piece of jewelry, these earrings must be meticulously cared for. Excessive twisting can lead to loosening the setting, and making space for grime and dirt that will dull the dazzle. To prevent scratches, store the diamonds away from other jewelry items.
