Diamond Earrings – The Perfect Gift for Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

There are few pieces of jewelry that can be said to be the perfect accessory to everything from a wedding dress to skinny jeans, but diamond earrings have that honor. Truly timeless, they were as fashionable in the roaring 20s and they are in the new millennium.

The most important element of any pair of diamond earrings? Those diamonds! You want the absolute utmost in sparkle, and for them to catch the light to dazzling effect at every opportunity. And if it is sparkle you are looking for, it is the cut that you need to pay particular attention to. This is the area that is worth investing in, to make sure you buy the very best cut diamonds that your budget will allow.
Many people choose to purchase the earring setting and the diamonds separately, and this is great because it allows you to potentially upgrade the stones from what might be available pre-mounted. A popular choice is our A CUT ABOVE® Hearts and Arrows super ideal cut diamonds, which are chosen for their brilliant light performance.
A CUT ABOVE Diamonds
Each diamond undergoes rigorous testing by industry experts, to make sure that everything from the integrity of the diamond to the cut itself is best in class.

When it comes to settings, it is worth spending a bit of time understanding the relative merits of each. Diamond stud earrings normally come with either three or four prong settings, although you can get up to eight prong settings. The more the number of prongs, the more securely the diamond is held in place, although it does also mean there is fractionally less diamond that can be seen and is able to catch the light.

A martini setting is often used, which uses a cone-like shape (like a martini glass) so that the diamond is set close to the ear. A basket setting will hold the diamond as if in a basket (obviously!) and slightly further away from the earlobe itself. If you are looking for something more contemporary, a bezel setting surrounds the diamond, keeping it secure, but again, providing less of the actual diamond on display.

These types of earrings suit a classic cut - round and princess cut diamonds are the most common. They both have that timeless elegance, as they really don’t fall in and out of fashion. Platinum and white gold are the metals used most frequently, yellow and rose gold are also nice options. A maximum of 18K gold is recommended, as any higher than this and the metal becomes too soft, and you risk it wearing quickly (particularly important if you intend to wear them regularly – and why would you not!).
Whether you are looking for a gift, or perhaps you want to treat yourself, diamond earrings are a tradition that has stood the test of time. The lucky recipient will enjoy them today, tomorrow, and perhaps even pass them on to generations to come, so that they can do the same.
