The first benefit relates to size. When it comes to diamond earrings, you don’t want a diamond that is too big. Our earlobes are dainty areas and can even be damaged by earrings that are too heavy.
This is one of the main reasons why one carat diamonds are perfect for earrings. Round cuts are usually around 6.5mm in diameter, and when cut to ideal proportions, look absolutely stunning when embedded in a well-paired setting.
That brings us on to another benefit — there are many, many styles of diamond earring to be enjoyed. For example, here at Whiteflash, we have:


Studs are a traditional design for diamond earrings, featuring one diamond in each earring setting, meaning these designs are minimalist and bring the diamond to focus.

Halos are an intricate step up from the stud, traditionally featuring one central diamond flanked by a ‘halo’ of smaller diamonds. These are the perfect choice for those with an interest in complexity and a flair for the dramatic.

Like the name suggests, diamond hoop earrings feature a hoop on which diamonds are delicately placed. Hoops come in a variety of designs and sizes, as their construction allows for more creative.

In contrast to studs, drops are so named because the main body of the earring ‘drops’ just below the earlobe. Many earrings of this type will feature either a charm or a gemstone, and are simply incredible when adorned with matching diamonds.

How Much Do One Carat Diamonds Cost?

Ultimately, the cost of one carat diamonds is variable, based on the quality of the cut, the clarity of the diamond, and the color. Essentially, when looking for the right diamond, consider the following:


Make sure that the diamond you’re choosing is properly certified by either the American Gem Society (AGS) or the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). This ensures that the diamond you’ve chosen has been analyzed by thoroughly experienced diamond experts, in line with universally accepted accreditations.
You can find out more about AGS vs GIA here.


Diamond can be cut in a multitude of different facet configurations. For example, there is the Asscher cut, princess cut, and round cut, amongst others. When it comes to one carat diamond earrings, the round cut is predominantly used, being able to produce the optimum light performance.
Here at Whiteflash, our most impressive, finest quality round cut diamonds are our incomparable A CUT ABOVE® Hearts and Arrows diamonds. This collection contains diamonds that are internationally recognized as Super Ideal, having been crafted with ultimate expertise and precision. You’ll be awe-struck by the dynamic personality that can be seen in each diamond and each flash of brilliant light.


Diamond clarity refers to how visible the inclusions or blemishes are that may be present within a diamond. Essentially, it works within a scale, from Flawless (the highest clarity of diamond) to Included. Not only can diamond clarity influence the beauty of a diamond, it also affects how much the diamond will cost.

Again, the main diamond is the focus of attention. With studs such as these, the settings are sold separately, meaning you have the opportunity to choose your own diamonds, making this exquisite gift better through that personal touch.

How To Match Loose Diamonds

Here at Whiteflash, you have the power to decide which diamonds you want, rather than having no choice whatsoever. However, with two earrings comes the need for two diamonds, so how do you find matching ones?
To match diamonds, they need to be close in both clarity, color, size, and cut quality - but they don’t need to be exact matches. In fact, diamonds are highly unique, so finding two stones that are exactly the same will certainly be a difficult task.
In the past, diamond lovers, jewelry experts, and discerning traders would spend hours leafing through a diamond’s certifications, pedigrees, and classifications to discover matches. Today, finding matching diamonds is as simple as clicking a button.
We offer an online diamond matching service, where you can search for the parameters you want and discover matching diamonds in just a few seconds. Our pairings are suggested based upon both their measurements and their gemological grades, ensuring that the two diamonds will complement each other when used in the finished jewelry.
We’re also able to offer further confirmation that the diamonds are a good match. Upon request, one of our diamond consultants will visually verify the diamonds so that you can rest easy knowing you are getting the perfect match.
