How to Get the Best Pear Cut Diamond Studs
Pear cut diamonds can be a great alternative to more common cuts, and they work especially well with earrings. If you want two teardrops of shimmering light on your ears, then a pear cut may be exactly what you’re looking for.
After years of experience in the jewellery industry here in Australia, I know a few things about diamonds. I’ve seen thousands of people enjoy our hand-crafted diamond earrings, and recommend us to family and friends.
I’ve also seen people make the same mistakes over and over when choosing diamond jewellery from less reputable sources. Many of these issues could have been avoided if they had just talked to someone with experience first.
If you want to have the best diamonds possible for your money, you’re going to have to do a bit of research or talk to an expert. That’s why I put together this guide to help you better understand what you can do to get the most beautiful, sparkling diamond earrings for your money.
The Cut Matters the Most
The quality of the cut is extremely important in any kind of diamond, but this is especially so with a pear cut. This is because pear cut diamonds must be perfectly symmetrical, or else they just don’t look good. Getting a cheaply-made pear cut diamond is a total waste because of this.
If you want a beautiful diamond that looks balanced, you’re going to need to go with a reputable jeweller with a proven customer base, preferably one in Australia. It’s not worth the risk to buy from an overseas seller since you never know what you’re getting. The cut is so critical, that you need an honest, expert eye to choose the diamond for you.
The Golden Ratio for a Diamond
Just as symmetry is important, the ratio of length to width also has an effect on a pear cut diamond’s aesthetics. Choosing a diamond that is quite a bit longer than it is wide, at a ratio of 1.6 or more, is ideal for earrings, since they have the most beautiful shape. Even the ancient Greeks worshiped this ratio as the most attractive.
If you are looking for the most beautiful shape possible for your pear cut diamond stud earrings, then you need a jeweller that can pay attention to the details. With our years of experience, we know how to judge a diamond by many different standards, and we know how to find the most symmetrical pear cut diamonds that can give off the best sparkle.
Colour is More Obvious on Pear Cut Diamonds
Another extreme aspect of the elegant and unique pear cut is the fact that it tends to not hide a diamond’s colour well. In other words, it can appear darker than it actually is if it has impurities. Nothing is worse than paying a high price for a diamond, only to have it appear yellow instead of a brilliant, shimmering white.
This is why it’s best to get someone with experience to examine the diamonds closely for you and give you one that will actually be worth the price. Of course, this needs to be a jeweller that you can actually trust, and one that offers a guarantee.
The Whole Earring Matters
It’s easy to forget about the quality of the settings when you have a beautiful diamond, but the metal that you will set the diamond on is important, too. If you want quality craftsmanship and not some mass-produced piece of junk, then you’re going to want to find an Australian jeweller that understands your needs and that abides by our own government’s standards.
Poorly-made jewellery can make the diamond pointless. Bad workmanship can produce scratches on the outside of the diamond, or can leave the diamond poorly protected.
If your diamond is set badly or was placed on low-quality settings, it could fall off and be lost. Cheap settings may seem like a bargain at the time, but they’re certainly not a bargain when hundreds of dollars worth of diamonds go missing!
Our company takes jewellery-making very seriously, and we would never present you with an inferior product. Besides, we take such pride in our products that we stand behind them with a lifetime warranty. You can’t get much more “risk-free” than that.
Beautiful Diamonds Don’t Have to Cost a Fortune
You don’t want to go with the cheapest diamonds that you can find, since these are bound to be ugly and not sparkle as vividly as truly high-quality diamonds. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to get a second mortgage on your house just to buy some beautiful stones that will last a lifetime. Like any other investment, your best approach is to find diamonds that are a reasonable, fair price from a reputable jeweller who has a lot of experience.
A good jeweller that you would want to work with has a few key traits:
- He sells only GIA-certified diamonds.
- He carefully examines every diamond and is willing to reject inferior ones.
- His prices are reasonable, while still reflecting the obvious expense that a diamond represents. If the prices are too good to be true, they probably are.
- He has a guarantee that protects you from bad workmanship.
- He sells you only exactly what you want.
This last point is important. When you go to a retail store, their mission is usually to sell you as much as they can, for as much as possible. When you eliminate the middle man, though, and work with honest jewellers who craft the jewellery themselves, you’ll have a completely different experience. You’ll find that the prices are not only reasonable, but that the customer service is far superior.
