Are Diamond Earrings The Perfect Gift?

The final decision on whether diamond earrings are the perfect gift for your significant other lies with you. You may think a diamond pendant or a diamond bracelet is the right choice instead - we won't argue with you in that regard.
However, diamond earrings make an ideal gift for several reasons:
  • The gift of earrings is appropriate for any occasion, from weddings to birthdays to graduations.
  • Various designs are available, so you don't have to choose studs if the recipient prefers jewelry with a little bit more movement.
  • Wearers of earrings are not limited by age or gender.
  • They are ideal for wearing every day.
  • A diamond earring suits any skin tone.
  • There is no doubt that they can develop a great deal of sentimental value over time.
  • Earrings can become inherently intimate gifts by selecting specific diamonds and styles.
  • Diamond earrings are a timeless choice. Their classic appeal ensures they never go out of style, making them a lasting addition to any jewelry collection.
It is safe to say that diamond earrings are a timeless and valuable gift that can be cherished for a lifetime. They make the perfect gift for anyone looking to give something meaningful and memorable, regardless of age, gender, or personal style.

What Size Carat for the Perfect Diamond Earring Gift?

Diamond Carat to Millimeter Chart
Contrary to popular belief - carats are measured by the weight of a diamond, not by its size. In spite of the fact that diamonds are often described by their size and appearance, this is not the case. One carat is equivalent to 200mg, with 5 carats equal to a gram.
For diamond stud earrings, the most popular weight is one carat, with each earring containing a half-carat diamond (approximately 5mm in diameter for a round diamond).
This is called a “total carat weight” of one carat; most jewelers will describe studs this way. If you’re looking for 1ct on each ear, take a look at our 2 Carat Diamond Earring Buying Guide for more guidance.
There may be a difference in the exact measurements of a diamond based on its cut parameters. It's important to understand that the shape and cut of a diamond will determine how large it appears. Elongated diamond shapes, even when of the same carat weight, can appear larger than round brilliant diamonds.
As a result, a well-cut diamond is essential. In particular, you should avoid deeply cut diamonds as they will appear small as well. It is important to keep this in mind when you are shopping for any diamonds - regardless if they make up a spectacular pair of earrings, necklace, bracelet or ring.
When compared to diamonds set in engagement rings, quality requirements for diamond earrings in terms of color and clarity grades can be relaxed significantly. A substantial part of the reason for this is that they are generally viewed from a greater distance than engagement rings. Many stones that are not considered eye-clean for engagement rings can be considered eye-clean for diamond studs.

Decide Whether to Build Your Own or Buy a Pre-Set Pair

There are many vendors who offer pre-designed earrings or allow you to design your own. Diamonds that have already been selected are already set in a predetermined setting, making it challenging for you to prioritize what's important to you.
By selecting your own loose diamond pair, you can compare several sets and find the perfect match. Ideally, they should have the same color, clarity, and cut grades. The earrings will complement and match each other, without being noticeable from earlobe to earlobe.
Here at Whiteflash, we have a spectacular tool to help you find the perfect pair of diamonds for your stud earrings. To ensure your chosen couple sparkles without interruption, we assess carat weight, shape, color, clarity, and cut.
No matter which route you choose, make sure the diamonds are of Excellent or Ideal cut to maximize their brilliance.

Upgrade With the Lab Grown Diamond Cost Savings

While we are known widely for our excellent natural diamonds, we know our customers are always looking for value. As more consumers become familiar with lab grown diamonds, the demand has grown. If cut well, they are equally beautiful to their natural counterparts.
There is no reason to compromise when you choose a lab diamond - you should take advantage of the savings offered.
Laboratory-created diamonds are usually better and/or bigger than commercial quality natural diamonds for sale in any given budget range. With a lab grown diamond, your budget will buy so much more!
As well as the diamond quality specifications, other factors like metal type and setting will influence the price of your lab grown diamond earrings.

Prioritize Cut for Diamond Earrings

When it comes to diamonds, cut is of utmost importance. Undoubtedly, it is the most important characteristic contributing to a diamond's "sparkle," which ultimately determines its beauty. As a result, you should never compromise on the cut quality of a diamond, especially when trying to achieve the best earring sparkle for your chosen gift.
Perfecting a lab-grown diamond and maximizing its brilliance and reflection is just as challenging as doing so with a natural diamond. However, with lab-grown diamonds, it's much more affordable to prioritize the cut - the rough material is so much less expensive that cutters are not incentivized to take liberties with cut quality.
When choosing an excellent or ideal cut diamond for your earrings, you will maximize their fire and brilliance. Natural diamonds of commercial quality are typically poorly cut and have much lower color and clarity than Precision Lab diamonds from Whiteflash.

At Whiteflash, all of our lab grown round diamonds are verified to be Hearts and Arrows diamonds without any post-growth treatments. In addition to being top quality color and clarity, each diamond is inscribed LG with its report number.
