WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BUYING DIAMOND STUD EARRINGS?
Diamond stud earrings are as good as buying diamond engagement ring. It ranges from $500 up to $40,000 or even more depending on the carat weight and quality of the diamond pair. And since buying stud earrings is valuable investment, it is best to consider the following factors to determine the cost of diamond earring set.
Weight of Diamond
This factor greatly affects the price of a diamond. The carat is the unit being used in measuring a diamond and each carat is worth one hundred (100) points. For example, 200 points pair of diamond stud is equivalent to 2 carat diamond earrings where each stone weigh 1.00 carat. Another example is 60 points diamond which is 0.60 carat diamond. Again, diamond weight has price impact but does not guarantee the diamond quality.
Cut of Diamond
Diamond cut is the most significant factor in buying diamonds. The cut of a diamond makes the earrings shine and sparkle. The absence of a good cut makes a diamonds look lifeless and dull. When a diamond is cut poorly with too much depth it can face up smaller than what it actually is.
Color & Clarity of Diamond
The less color a diamond has or the whiter a diamond is, the more expensive it will be. Yellowish diamonds are cheaper but may go well with a yellow gold setting. Color is categorized by faint yellow, nearly colorless and colorless. If you have a limited budget getting nearly colorless diamond is ideal. Clarity, on the other hand, refers to the “inclusions” in a diamond. Haziness or cloudiness is what best describes what inclusion is. The fewer the inclusions, the more expensive the diamond because it gives a clearer or cleaner look for a diamond.
