1 Carat Diamond Stud Earrings Guide – Read This Before You Buy
The best diamond earrings are GIA certified, but that is not the only thing that makes a beautiful diamond. If it were that easy, we wouldn’t have so many experienced jewellers on staff, examining every diamond that comes through our doors.
To make truly elegant jewellery that gives the brightest sparkle, a diamond needs to be clear of impurities, free of blemishes, and cut by a master. Thanks to our vast experience, we can spot flaws in diamonds, even when they are not obvious to the naked eye.
As a jeweller here in Australia who has been devoted to this art for years, I know what it takes to craft the perfect diamond earrings. Here is my guide for finding the best diamond studs available for a reasonable price, without compromising on quality. Consider it a crash course on becoming a bit of a diamond earring expert yourself.
The Best Colour is None at All
One of the most important aspects of a diamond is its colour. When the diamond is mined from the earth, it will naturally have impurities. Only the most pure and flawless diamonds are completely clear. However, these are exactly the kinds of diamonds that give the best sparkle.
Impurities like these may not be obvious to you if you examine the stone casually. This is why it’s best to have an expert help you choose the most colourless stone, so that you know what you’re getting. Diamonds with impurities are usually cheaper, but they’re also uglier. If you want only an impressive stone, then you’ll need to go for one that is as colourless as you can afford.
Flawless Diamonds Are Not Cheap
Another trait that superior diamonds have is their lack of blemishes and scratches. This is not something you want to be cheap about. The GIA uses a scale from “flawless” to “included” in order to rate the clarity of the diamond. The diamonds that reflect light the best are those that are closest to “flawless,” so this is what you want to buy.
Buying stones that have obvious visual marks just isn’t worth it, even if they are inexpensive. They will look unattractive and cheap. When it comes to the clarity of your diamond, it’s best to just accept that you’re going to have to pay a high price for beauty.
The Right Cut Makes the Diamond
It is largely the cut of the diamond that influences its brilliance, or the amount of light that sparkles back towards the person who looks at it. This all depends on the proportions of the diamond after it has been cut. A poor cut can result in a diamond that is less bright, has less “fire,” and overall less sparkle.
Cheap, Ugly Diamonds Dominate the Market
It’s no secret that cheap, ugly diamonds are everywhere. And worst of all, many times they are sold a sky high prices too. Who wants to pay a premium for low quality diamonds?
There are way too many cheap diamond earrings out there. People buy ugly diamonds because they simply don’t know any better.
If you really want to look good from head to toe, it pays to get the best diamonds that you possibly can and to go with a jeweller who is going to make sure you get the best.
The Right Diamond on the Wrong Setting is a Waste
Many people get so caught up in the process of choosing a flawless diamond that they forget the other part of the equation: the settings for their 1 carat diamond stud earrings. Both the gem and the metalwork have to cooperate to make the piece of jewellery truly look good.
I’ve seen way too many people waste their time having cheap jewellery made out of expensive diamonds. It’s understandable that you might feel like saving money after splurging on an expensive rock, but getting low-quality imported settings that were made in China or wherever will only ruin the whole diamond’s effect.
Low-quality settings break easily, which could cause you to lose your precious stone. They can also wear out more easily or cause allergic reactions in your skin because of impurities.
If you’re going to pay a high price to get the best diamonds anyway, it’s a much better idea to buy jewellery that is made in Australia. Our company will craft your 1-carat diamond stud earrings by hand, using proven methods that are trusted in the industry. We hold ourselves only to the highest standard, both in our selection of diamonds and in the painstaking creation of your jewellery.
You Get What You Pay For, But Don’t Pay Too Much
While I think that it’s important for people to let go of the idea that a good quality diamond could ever be cheap, they should also know that they don’t need to be gouged on price. A good, honest jeweller will be upfront with you and will only charge reasonable prices.
Those bottom-of-the-barrel prices that you see on random websites might seem attractive, but at the end of the day, what are you paying for? You never really know. Unless you’re buying from an Australian company with a reputation to protect, you risk wasting your money on an inferior product.
Instead, look for a high-quality Australian jeweller who can give you a fair price. With us, you know what you’re getting, and if you ever have questions, we have a great customer service team that will help you every step of the way.
