Key things to consider when choosing diamond studs
Since diamonds reflect the colors around them, you need to take the metal color into account where the diamond will be set to make sure that it matches your skin tone, hair, or even other accessories you’ll be wearing, such as other earrings, watches, or even glasses.
That’s important to consider since the metal around the diamonds will surely affect the perceived color of your earrings. So, depending on if you choose yellow, rose, and white gold will definitely change the way the diamond looks on you overall and matches your look.
It’s very rare to find a completely flawless diamond, but the higher the diamond clarity, the lower the imperfections. Yet, this aspect may not be the most important thing to consider in the case of diamond stud earrings, because their imperfections are imperceptible to the naked eye - unless examined with jewelers’ expert tools.
The diamond cut is equally important to be considered, for it affects the gem’s capacity to sparkle, as well as the diamond carat weight. It’s generally good for diamonds to be 0.50 carats or larger, but the carat alone is still no guarantee of a stunning shine without a good cut.
Lastly but likewise important, diamond stud earrings need to be backed up by a proper setting to ensure they’re securely set. So, make sure you choose an earring setting that fits your taste, considering that it needs to be compatible with the style of the stone.
