You’ll be creating a memory she’ll treasure just as much as her new jewelry.

Guidelines for Choosing Quality Diamond Studs

Diamond studs are an incredibly versatile jewelry staple. They pair perfectly with almost every outfit— plus, their design can be customized to suit your exact tastes. You can choose your ideal metal, setting, diamond shape, and diamond quality for your studs. But when there are so many variables when shopping for diamond studs, how can you be sure you’re buying the pair that’s right for you? Read on to see our guidelines for selecting quality diamond studs! 

1. Mind the 4Cs

The four Cs are important to consider when buying any diamond, and the diamonds in your diamond studs are no exception. If you don’t already know, the four Cs are four different qualities that define a diamond: diamond carat, diamond cut, diamond clarity, and diamond color.

Carat, perhaps the most well known of the four Cs, is a measurement of how much a diamond weighs (and is also a reasonably good indicator of size). Cut is a measurement of how well a diamond was cut, clarity is how clear (meaning free of inclusions and blemishes) a diamond is, and color defines how white a diamond is.

When considering how well diamonds in a pair of diamond studs stack up according to the four Cs, it’s important to know how important each quality is to you. Do you want the whitest diamond you can get? Or do you want the largest diamond you can get? You can choose which aspects of your diamonds are the most important to you, then shop with that in mind.

2.  Only Buy Certified Diamonds

This step is extremely important when shopping for diamond studs: you should only buy diamonds that are GIA or AGSL certified. If the diamonds you buy aren’t certified, there’s no way of ensuring you know the quality you’re buying. To avoid overpaying for subpar diamonds, it’s best to never buy uncertified diamonds.

3.  Consider A Pop of Color

While white diamonds are certainly the most classic choice for a pair of diamond studs, diamonds come in many different color options. If you are shopping for someone who loves to wear color (or if you’re shopping for yourself and you love color), consider choosing blue or yellow diamonds for your studs. You can also choose different neutral colors for your diamonds; brown and black diamonds are sophisticated alternatives to white diamonds.

4.  Choose Your Metal

Selecting the right metal for your diamond studs is important both stylistically and practically. On the practical side of things, you should remember that gold is softer than platinum, and is more likely to get scuffed. And the higher the karat of gold, the softer it is. So if you’re shopping for someone who’s very active (or maybe someone who just doesn’t want to be super careful with their jewelry), platinum or a lower karat gold might be a better choice for them.

Style-wise, certain people simply prefer certain metal colors over others. If you’re shopping for yourself, you likely know which metal colors appeal to you most. But if you’re shopping for someone else, make sure to consider which color of jewelry they might like best.

5.  Pick A Setting You’ll Love

Diamond studs can be set in a few different ways. They can be prong set, which allows the side of the diamond to be seen. Or they can be bezel set, which shows very little of a diamond’s sides but has the advantage of being exceptionally secure. You can also choose to get a halo setting, which adds major sparkle to a pair of studs. Think about which setting appeals to you most (or would appeal to whoever you’re shopping for) before you buy.

6.  Keep It Secure

The last step to choosing your perfect diamond studs? Make sure you pick the right backing style for you. Earring backings are what keep diamond studs securely in place on your ear, and there are a few different kinds. Push backs are the standard earring backing, screw backs are a more secure backing that screws into place, and secure lock backs are the most secure backing that locks into place. Consider which backing would best suit you (or the lucky person you’re shopping for), then choose the backing that you think would work best.

Those are our six guidelines for buying quality diamond studs! Ready to buy your perfect pair? Check out our diamond stud builder to design your ideal diamond studs.

DS-ValentinesDayBlog-Eblast (2)

Valentine’s Day— it’s the most romantic day of the year. It’s the perfect day to spend time with the one you love and give them a thoughtful gift to show them how much they mean to you. When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, fine jewelry is a popular choice. Jewelry is not only beautiful, it’s also romantic. When you give your sweetheart a gorgeous new piece of jewelry, she’ll think of you each time she wears it. But there are so many pieces to choose from— how do you give something you know she’ll love? To help you pick the just the right piece this Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together this list of our most loved fine jewelry. These are the pieces that women all over the world are loving— and ones your beau is sure to love too.

White Diamond Studs

RB075-A1W-M1

If you want to make sure you wow her this Valentine’s Day, go classic. White diamond studs in four-prong or bezel mountings are by far the most sought-after jewelry, and they have been for decades. Diamond studs in the classic white shade are absolutely radiant and so easy to wear. If your partner doesn’t have a pair yet, she’ll be absolutely thrilled to receive some this Valentine’s day.

Black Diamond Studs

BKRB200-5W-M1

Black diamond studs are rapidly growing in popularity with women who love their edgy and unique look. Black diamonds are beautifully cool, and their neutral shade will pair well with just about every outfit your lady has in her closet. And, as an added bonus, black diamond studs are better priced than the standard white diamond stud, so you can get a much better price per carat with this item.

Rose Gold Rings

RRB100-3R-M1

The soft beauty of rose gold has turned the metal into a highly sought after new neutral. White gold, yellow gold, and platinum are no longer the only fine metals on the scene— rose gold is here to stay. One of the most popular ways women are wearing rose gold is in solitaire rings. Solitaire rings are a timeless classic, whether they’re worn as engagement rings or fashionable right-hand cocktail rings. If you’re looking for an ultra-romantic piece this Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with a rose gold solitaire ring.

Blue Sapphire Studs

GBS-1W-M1

Blue sapphires studs are a great choice for their vintage appeal. Blue sapphires have a rich history; they’ve long been a favorite of royals, thanks to their incredible deep blue sparkle. While their gorgeous hue is timeless, sapphires have also made a big comeback in recent years with women who love their vintage glamour. Any woman who loves classic glamour will be thrilled to receive a pair of blue sapphire studs this Valentine’s day.

Princess Cut Studs

PC100-A1W-M1

Choosing princess cut diamonds creates a sweet twist on the classic diamond stud. Princess cut diamonds, which look square when set in jewelry, are one of the more modern diamond shapes. Their more distinctive shape sets them apart from round diamonds, while the way they’re cut still allows a high level of brilliance. Princess cut diamond studs are a great choice for a woman who has a modern sense of style and loves to turn heads.

Make Her Valentine’s Day Memorable

Once you’ve chosen your Valentine’s Day gift, remember that how you give the gift is just as important. Consider making her Valentine’s Day even more memorable by giving her her new fine jewelry in a fun and surprising way. An idea we love is surprising your valentine with breakfast in bed and having her jewelry wrapped up on the breakfast tray. There’s no sweeter way to start her Valentine’s Day than with a lovingly cooked meal and an incredible new piece of fine jewelry. She’ll treasure the memory— and her new jewelry— for a lifetime.

July’s Birthstone: The Royal Ruby

While all birthstones have a distinct meaning and unique beauty, those born in July are perhaps the most fortunate considering their birthstone is the ever-enchanting ruby. Hailed by many as the king of precious gemstones and known throughout the world for its dazzling beauty, the ruby has many characteristics that make it a special gemstone for many people, but especially for those born in July.

Historians believe that rubies were traded on the Silk Road as early as 200BC and have traced the ruby back to many other ancient civilizations including ancient Greece, demonstrating the gem’s long-standing significance in the world. For these different ancient cultures, the ruby was highly symbolic and meaningful, and a great deal of that symbolic meaning is still attached to the gemstone today. The ruby is believed to represent arguably some of the most important aspects of life—love, protection, and prosperity. Legend has it that due to the ruby’s strength and durability, many ancient warriors donned rubies on their shields to grant them protection. In addition, being a stone that adorned the upper classes of society throughout history, the ruby became a symbol of wealth and prosperity.

One defining aspect of the ruby that makes it so special is its rich and radiant red color. The ruby’s brilliant red color is often associated with vitality, passion, and a zest for life and love. This is the reason many find the ruby to be a high-energy stone. Rubies can be found in many different shades of red, from rich tonal shades to bright and vivid hues.

Today, rubies are one of the most sought-after precious gemstones in the world.  Given their unparalleled beauty and deeply symbolic meaning, the highly coveted gems make for one of the most specials gifts available. As their birthstone, a ruby is a particularly appropriate gift for someone born in July. A piece of ruby jewelry is a gift that a person born in July will have a special connection with for the rest of their lives. Below, our expert team at DiamondStuds.com lists a few of our favorite ruby earrings that will make the perfect gift for a July baby.

Yellow Diamond Studs

YRB200-2Y-M1

Yellow Diamond Studs in 14k Gold Martini Setting

Yellow diamonds are among the rare “fancy” diamonds. This family of diamonds is made up of naturally colored diamonds that are many times rarer than white diamonds— they are some of the rarest gemstones on earth. These are a great fit for a man with rare taste, one who likes to be bold and stand out from the crowd.

Single Diamond Stud

SRB025-A2R-M2

Round Diamond in 14k Rose Gold Martini Setting

Classic diamond studs are great as a pair, but also impressive on their own. Instead of getting the man in your life a pair of studs, consider getting him a single stud. Many men prefer to either wear just one diamond stud or, if they’re following today’s trends, to mix and match their pieces to create a unique style.

Black Diamond Studs

BKPR400-1W-M1

Black Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold

Black diamonds are mysterious and make a strong statement. The edgy Dad might appreciate black diamond studs more than the standard white diamond since they are more unique. Black diamond studs are a great gift for the man who has an edgy style and likes to set himself apart from the crowd.

Blue Diamond Studs

BLRB200-1W-M1

Blue Diamond Studs in Platinum

Blue diamond studs are strongly associated with royalty. This deeply colored stone has graced the fingers of many of history’s most powerful kings. Perhaps Royals throughout the years have been drawn to their rich color, or perhaps they wanted to acquire them because they are even rarer than yellow diamonds. But, for whatever the reason may have been, blue diamonds are now forever associated with the royals. Because of this, blue diamond studs are an incredibly special gift to give the man in your life.

May Birthstone: The Benefits of EMERALDS

14k White Gold 4-Prong Basket Round Green Emerald Gemstone Stud Earrings

Emeralds: these sparkling green gems have been highly prized for thousands of years. They’re a part of the “big four” of precious stones, along with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. While other gemstones come in multiple shades, emeralds are always green. This signature green color is why emeralds ended up becoming the May birthstone. The deep, rich green color of the emerald has always been closely associated with Spring, making it a perfect match for May’s new blooms. Because it’s the month of the emerald, we decided to take a closer look at the many benefits of this month’s birthstone!

What makes emeralds so special?

They’re Durable

5-11pt2

18k White Gold Bezel Round Green Emerald Gemstone Stud Earrings

Let’s start with a practical reason why emeralds are so beneficial: they’re incredibly durable. Emeralds are extremely hard. This means that they’re not easily scratched and can stand the test of time, making them great for everyday wear. But it is important to clean them gently (using no harsh chemicals) as emeralds are often treated to reduce the appearance of their natural inclusions.

They’re Associated With Royalty

5-11pt3

14k Yellow Gold Halo Round Green Emerald Gemstone Earrings

Emeralds have been worn by royals throughout the ages and were, in particular, a favorite of Cleopatra. Prized for their deep green color, they’ve been featured in many crown jewels, like King Henry II’s famous emerald ring and Queen Elizabeth’s emerald diadem. This association with royalty has created an added air of luxury around emeralds.

They Represent Growth

Because of their deep green color, emeralds have long been associated with growth. The stone is said to help promote inner growth in the wearer, helping them improve spiritually. Because of their association with positive growth, emeralds are also said to be the best stone to promote fertility.

They Activate The Heart Chakra

5-11pt5

Don’t Forget Your Green This St. Patrick’s Day

GGE-1Y-M1

14k Yellow Gold 4-Prong Basket Round Green Emerald Gemstone Stud Earrings

Today, the color green is the first thing that many people think of when they think about St. Patrick’s Day. This is because wearing green is the most popular way for people to publicly commemorate the day. While St. Patrick’s Day is primarily now a day to celebrate Irish culture, this day actually began as a Catholic Holy Day commemorating Saint Patrick.

saint-patrick

St. Patrick’s Day celebrates Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. The day marks the date of his death, March 17th, and commemorates the universal baptism of Ireland. St. Patrick was born in 4th century Britain but spent his life preaching and converting the Irish to Christianity.

St. Patrick was actually originally associated with the color blue. So, why do we associate green with his holiday? Green became associated with St. Patrick’s day once the holiday shifted from being a Holy Day to a day of public festivities celebrating Irish heritage. Ireland has been strongly associated with the color green due to the country’s lush green landscape and its national symbol – the shamrock four-leafed clover.

shamrock-field

One of the oldest St. Patrick’s Day traditions is pinning a shamrock to your lapel for good luck. This fits with modern traditions too, as shamrocks and the color green are widely associated with luck. Green also symbolizes prosperity, money, good fortune, balance, new growth, and vitality.

The most common St. Patrick’s Day tradition today has certainly become wearing the lucky color green. There are other traditions, like drinking Irish beers, eating Irish foods, and holding parades, but at any of those activities, you’ll always find seas of people wearing green. Here in the United States, it’s even a tradition for those who aren’t wearing green to be affectionately pinched.

18k White Gold Bezel Round Green Emerald Gemstone Stud Earrings

Green is everywhere on St. Patrick’s Day. So draw in some luck, celebrate the festivities, or just avoid getting pinched by making sure you are sporting green on March 17th. Emerald earrings are a perfect way to add a pop of green to your outfit or to complement the green you’re already wearing. In addition to being associated with luck and nature, emeralds are also associated with love, prosperity, compassion, and enjoying life to the fullest. Many spiritual healers say that emeralds are a great way to revive passionate energy in your life, whether it be in love, at work, or just in general.
