Our company strives to create meaningful diamond jewelry that lasts a lifetime. Adding a pair of diamond earrings to your jewelry box can benefit in any given style.

Available diamond shapes: Round, Princess, Oval, Emerald, Pear, Marquise, Heart, Cushion, Asscher, Radiant, and more. From simplicity to complexity, each stone shape is intricately cut proportionally to illustrate maximum shine, regardless if it’s a common shape or a special diamond cut. It is important to keep in mind that the more complex the shape is, the less it may sparkle. The best sparkle always comes from a Round Brilliant Cut
DIAMOND CUT GRADES:
In a Diamond Cut, there are five main specs to look for. What mostly determines the premium value of Diamond Stud Earrings would be the Cut Grade, Symmetry Grade, Polish Grade, Culet Type and Girdle Thickness.
Cut Grade – Cut Grade is how close a diamond is cut to a shape. Not all BrilliantRound Cut Diamonds are cut perfectly round. And not all Princess Cut Diamonds are cut perfectly square. This applies to all shapes. Cut Grade Ideal or Excellent Cut diamonds are considered to be closest to the shape a Diamond was meant to represent. Bad Cut Grade would look completely off to the naked eye. There are many Cut Grades for Diamonds in between those Cut Grades.
- Ideal or Excellent Cut Grade - Most Gemological Appraisals and Certificate Companies use the term Ideal or Excellent for Cut Grade. There are some Gemological Organizations that may use different terms, but those companies are mostly used for professional trading. Diamonds that receive the grade of Ideal or Excellent Would be the closest to the shape the diamond was cut to.
- Very Good Cut Grade - Below Excellent or Ideal Cut comes Very Good. With a gemologist’s trained eyes, this cut grade will look the same as Ideal/Excellent cut, Gemologists would determine the difference only with measuring tools.
- Good Cut Grade – A Gemologist’s trained eye should be able to tell the difference between an Excellent Cut grade and Good Cut grade. There would be a small change in premium value at the Good Cut grade.
- Fair Cut Grade – A Gemologist’s trained eye would simply tell the difference between an Excellent Cut grade and Fair Cut grade. Fair Cut grade would have a dramatic change in its premium value.
- Bad Cut Grade – The untrained eye would simply tell the difference between an Excellent Cut grade and a Bad Cut grade. Bad Cut grades would have a dramatic change in premium value.
- If you are wondering why diamonds are cut differently than Excellent, the answer is simple: Diamond Cutters decide how to cut a diamond to get the best value. Sometimes a Diamond Cutter would compromise the cut grade to keep a diamond over a certain weight and sometimes, they would sacrifice the cut grade to reduce inclusions.

Choosing a good color grade can determine whether or not your stone is colorless or has a tint of color to it. Depending on the scale, color can or cannot be noticeable to the human eye. - The color scale typically ranges from “D” (high) to “M” (low). o D Color - being absolutely colorless and considered a perfect specimen. o E Color - being almost perfectly colorless. Almost zero trace of color found even by a well-trained Gemologist. o F Color - being close to perfectly colorless. A tiny trace of color can be found by a well-trained Gemologist. o G Color - being almost colorless. A trace of color can be found by a well-trained Gemologist, particularly in comparison to higher color grade stones. o H Color - having some color detectable by an untrained eye, still considered a very good diamond color. o I Color - has a slight color tint when compared to higher grade stones. o J Color - has a tint of color that is visible to the naked eye. o K Color - has a dark shade of color that is noticeable to the naked eye. o L Color - has a very dark shade of color that is noticeable to the naked eye. o M Color - has a very dark shade of color that is noticeable to the naked eye.
Choosing a good clarity can determine the number of imperfections visible to the eye. A good clarity can determine whether or not your stone is clear and shiny. - The clarity scale typically ranges from a “FL” (high) to an “I3” (low). o FL - being Flawless with no imperfections present in the stone. o VVS1 - being Very, Very Slightly Included to the first degree. The Diamond would have little to no imperfections present but can be visible under a microscope. o VVS2 - being Very, Very Slightly Included to the second degree. Diamond would have slightly more imperfections than a VVS1. o VS1 - being Very Slightly Included to the first degree. Diamond would have slightly more imperfections than a VVS2 and has imperfections noticeable under a 10x magnified loupe. o VS2 - being Very Slightly Included to the second degree. The Diamond would have slightly more imperfections than a VS1 and has imperfections noticeable under a 10x magnified loupe. o SI1 - being Slightly Included to the first degree. Inclusions/imperfections can be difficult to see with the naked eye where the shine is not compromised. o SI2 - being Slightly Included, to the second degree. Contains inclusions that begin to affect the shine of the stone. o SI3 - being Slightly Included to the third degree. Contains more inclusions than a SI2 and less than an I1. Some gemological laboratories do not recognize a SI3 and would give a SI2 grade. Lowest Grade where shine would be present in the diamond o I1- being Included to the first degree. Due to visible inclusions, the stone has no shine o I2 - being Included to the second degree. Due to visible inclusions, the stone has no shine. o I3 - being Included to the third degree. Due to visible inclusions, the stone has no shine.
TYPES OF METAL FOR OUR JEWELRY:
Nothing makes a beautiful diamond stone more elegant than the type of metal showcasing it. Depending on your preference, we offer a variety of classic metals that project the stone’s beauty, such as: Yellow Gold, White Gold, Rose Gold, and Platinum. These timeless metals provide sustainability and class to your pair of Earrings. With each type of Gold, we offer three types of gold purity (represented in Karats, abbreviated with “K”): 10K, 14K, and 18K. The higher in Karat, the higher amount of pure gold is present in the setting. Gold in its purest form is considered too soft to form durable jewelry, therefore, it must be mixed with other metals to improve its strength. - 10K contains 41.67% pure gold. - 14K contains 58.33% pure gold. - 18K contains 75% pure gold.
TYPES OF BACKING:
One of the biggest factors of Diamond Stud Earrings we take into consideration, in addition to beautiful appearance, is comfortability. Customers have the choice of what type of earring backing they prefer, whether it’s Screw Back, Push Back, Lever Back, or Push Lock.
We offer affordable Diamond Stud Earrings. You can finance your Diamond Studs with Affirm or with a Layaway plan.
What is the most secure Diamond Stud Backing?
The safest diamond stud earring backing would be Screw Back. Some would say Push Lock is a better choice. However, with our experience, the springs in a Push Lock would loosen faster than a Screw Backing. The safest option for earrings is a Screw Backing.
Why do Screw Backs hurt my ears?
Some customers have sensitive ears and may have irritation from Screw Backings. The best option would be to have Push Back Stud Earrings.
Are Push Lock Earrings safe?
The springs in a Push Lock will quickly go bad. We personally do not recommend Push Lock backings.
Are 3 Prong Martini Stud Earrings safe?
We recommend 4 Prong Martini Stud Earrings. If a prong on a 4 Prong Martini Stud Earring is damaged, the diamond can still be safe from falling. With a 3 Prong Martini Setting, if one prong is damaged, there is a higher chance the diamond would get lost.
What metal should I get for Diamond Stud Earrings?
The best metal to get for Diamond Stud Earrings is 14k Gold. Any color of gold you select would be fine but 14k would be the best. If you have allergic reactions to 14k gold, then we recommend upgrading to 18k or Platinum. We recommend staying away from 10k because the metal would be too brittle and the prongs can break.
Is Platinum stronger than White Gold?
Pure Platinum is stronger than pure Gold. 14k White Gold has about 41% of Nickle and Zinc. Therefore, 14k Gold would be the strongest and most secure metal to use for Diamond Stud Earrings.
What are Diamond Stud Earrings?
Diamond Stud Earrings are a significant piece of fashion that has been popular in the jewelry industry since their creation.

It’s important to take into consideration the color and clarity of the stone as well as the size. The higher quality stone combined with an increased diamond size would cause the price to increase. Our general recommendation is purchasing Diamond Studs with a total carat weight of 1.00 as well as a good color and clarity.
What is a good color grade for Diamond Stud Earrings?
Just like diamonds come in a variety of different sizes, they come in a variety of different colors as well. In general, you would want to have as close to as little color visibility as possible. Depending on the budget of your purchase, we recommend an “H” color or higher. “H” color is when the diamond begins to show less color than the lower grades and is considered the median range in color quality.
What is a good clarity grade for Diamond Stud Earrings?
Diamonds come in many different clarities, as well as sizes and grades of color. The clarity of your diamond depends on the number of imperfections and inclusions present in the stone. The less imperfections and inclusions visible, the much more shine and sparkle your diamond will have. We recommend an “SI1” diamond clarity or higher. “SI1” is considered to be the median range of diamond clarity quality, the stone will be much clearer and imperfections will be difficult to see by the naked eye.
What does an Earrings Total Carat Weight mean?
The total carat weight of your Diamond Studs is the total carat weight of both earrings combined; this is commonly abbreviated as “CT. TW.” For example, ordering earrings with a total carat weight of 1.00, the diamonds on each earring will measure 0.50 carats.

This will provide gorgeous Studs that are near colorless and have imperfections that are difficult to be seen by the naked eye.
What are inclusions in Diamond Earrings?
All diamonds are not always perfect specimens. Diamonds are strictly made from carbon and the formation of these crystals can entail imperfections that can or can’t be visible to the eye.

Martini Studs are shaped similar to a martini glass, where the prongs holding the diamond triangulate to the setting. Basket Studs are shaped similar to a basket holding the diamond, where the prongs are held together by a surrounding setting.
