Diamond earrings have always been a classic choice, and in my opinion, will never go out of style. Their simple, clean elegance goes as easily with a pair of jeans as a ball gown. If you’re thinking about buying a pair – for yourself or a loved one – here is some information and buying tips.
At Haltom’s, we’re picky about the diamonds we use for earstuds. We put an emphasis on the sparkle of the stones as well as the match of the two diamonds. We’re careful to match diamonds for MM size rather than the diamond weight as well as cut proportions.
We also match for color and clarity, but our choices for diamond earstuds are not the same as for diamond engagement rings. Higher color and clarity grade are easily seen on your hand, but your ears remain further away and size, sparkle, and brightness become more important for earrings.
Our favorite choices for earstud settings are white gold in either four prong basket mountings or three prong martini mountings. White gold makes the diamonds pop on the ear, and our customer can choose between the two setting styles.
The easiest way to determine the one you like is to try them on. Everyone’s ears are a little different and one style always sits better on the ear. Jumbo size earring backs can help some of us with small lobes, or a stretched piercing keep the diamonds facing forward. Most of us choose a friction back, but we do have customers that like a threaded post and back for security and we’re glad to accommodate.
How to Buy
Diamond earstuds are a great way to start building a fabulous jewelry collection. At Haltom’s, we let our customers choose the pair in a comfortable price range to begin, then trade in and trade up as often as they like. We always give you every penny you paid in trade against a bigger pair. This is truly a way to get Oprah or Martha size earstuds without ever busting the budget!
How to Wear
Honestly, you can wear diamond earstuds all the time. We find diamond earstuds are always on the list of “What I want in my jewelry box when I grow up.” We may run a quick errand without accessories, but we’ll never leave the house without earrings. And the purchase price always seems reasonable after a year goes by and we realize we wore them 300 out of 365 days.
Classic diamond earstuds are truly best sellers and the best wearers every year. If you’d like to see what works with your budget, please stop by any Haltom’s location, and we’ll be glad to help.
