Carat Size Buying Tips

Diamond carat is often misunderstood and actually refers to a diamond's weight, rather than the size. The carat weight can actually vary by a diamonds size depending on it's cut quality. It's important to note that a size guide is an average table measurement that represents the comparable carat weight of a quality cut diamond.

When buying diamond stud earrings consider the cut quality. As a poor or good cut diamond may often have a deeper cut, meaning the weight of the diamond is actually at the bottom of the diamond, rather than at the surface top at the table. We recommend a diamond of the cut grade Very Good or Excellent. This will ensure your diamond studs are comparable to the diamond size guide.

Knowing a few quick buying tips can guide you to help choose the best diamond earring options for you.
