Diamond Studs, Not Duds!
What do snow, wrapping paper, champagne, and diamonds all have in common?
SPARKLES, of course!
The holidays are fast approaching and that means there is no better time to fill your life with all things sparkly… including a beautiful pair of diamond stud earrings. Whether you’re shopping for your partner, your grandma, (or even yourself!), this holiday season you can’t go wrong a classically gorgeous pair of diamond stud earrings.
Diamond studs are a cornerstone of any complete jewelry wardrobe. Their refractive properties instantly brighten the face and add radiance to any holiday look.
The best part? They go with everything. From pale blue jeans and sweaters to little black dresses, diamond studs are an accessory she’ll never want to take off. So how do you make sure you’re getting the highest quality, most beautiful diamonds for your money?
Here, we’ll show you what to look out for so you can be sure the diamonds you’re getting are studs, not duds!
1. A diamond’s job is to sparkle.
This is never truer than with diamond stud earrings because diamond studs have nothing to hide behind. The diamonds must speak for themselves.
The way to ensure you are getting the sparkliest diamond possible is to prioritize cut over any of the other four C’s. (You can read even more about the four C’s here.)
Cut is responsible for 60% of a diamond’s worth, and 100% of the diamond’s beauty. We’ve all seen diamonds that look murky and lack sparkle–that happens when a diamond is poorly cut. Poorly cut diamonds just won’t sparkle the way they should, no matter what. So, to get the best diamond stud earrings possible, start by choosing a jeweler who always prioritizes cut.
Spoiler alert: We do!
At Wedding Day Diamonds, every diamond has been hand selected. Anything that doesn’t dazzle as it should, doesn’t make it to our sales floor. That means you can rest assured the earrings you select have already been analyzed and chosen for their exceptional beauty. That’s also why we stand behind them with an industry-leading lifetime warranty. (More on that here.)
2. Look for Lab Grown
Physically, chemically, and optically, lab grown diamonds are the exact same as mined diamonds. They’re even faceted by the same diamond cutters!
Yet, lab grown diamonds are 30-40% less expensive than mined diamonds, which means you can get a significantly larger diamond–of the exact same quality–for your money.
And unlike mined diamonds, lab grown diamonds are eco-friendly. This means you can get larger, brighter, entirely conflict-free diamonds just by choosing lab grown.
3. Pick Your Size and Shape!
This is the fun part. (Although, if you ask diamond geeks like us, every part of playing with diamonds is fun.)
And this holiday season, we’ve got them in about a bazillion sizes, so you are sure to find the pair you love, at a price that keeps you merry.
As always, if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for, you can even work with our goldsmiths to create a custom pair by designing your own mounting and hand-selecting your own loose diamonds.
So happy holidays. We cannot wait to help you find the perfect studs (not duds!) to make your festive season sparkle!
