There are many pieces of jewellery that we may love to have and wear, but diamond earrings stand out as a classic. Like the little black dress, a pearl necklace or a pair of stilettos, diamond earrings are a must-have for the truly well dressed woman. Here are some things to consider when picking up a pair of these sparklers.
Know what you want
Choose the right type of earring. While some may prefer studs, others might want diamond hoop earrings or another setting that displays the diamond. This will be very dependent on the woman’s personality. Once you know the right type of earring you’re looking for, you can begin to consider other aspects of the diamond. Are you looking for these earrings for a special evening out, or are you thinking more about every day wear?
The right type of diamond
Learn the 4 Cs of diamonds – cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. Carat weight refers to the size of the stones, and this is where a good part of the price comes from. The heavier and bigger the stone, the more you will pay for it. But if you cannot afford the carat size you want, try looking for a diamond with a superior cut instead. Much of the sparkle we associate with diamonds comes from the manner in which they are cut. A good cut allows all the panels to reflect the light and sparkle.

The beauty of shopping online is that it allows you to search a range of products without experiencing the fatigue you can experience in a store. You also have access to a much wider range of products that are narrowed down by your search terms. Comparing these products side by side will ensure you get a quality pair of diamond earrings that fit your expectations and lifestyle.
