Commonly Asked Questions About Our Diamond Stud Earrings

What size diamond should I get for studs?
For casual, everyday use, diamond stud sizes typically range from 0.25 CTW (Carat Total Weight) to 1.0 CTW. However, you’ll often find stud earrings greater than 1.0 CTW at special occasions such as galas, weddings, and other events where statement jewelry is more likely to be fully displayed. The right size of studs will depend on the size of your earlobe and the look you are going for. A general rule of thumb is to choose studs about 1/4 to 1/3 the width of your earlobe.
What size diamond stud is too big?
While 1.0 CTW studs can come off as either casual or fancy, any larger than 1.5 CTW may be considered excessive. In addition to looking unusual, diamond stud earrings this large can start to droop from their own weight, making them even less comfortable and visually appealing. Read our comparison of 1 carat vs. 2 carat.
How much do studs with diamonds typically cost?
As with all diamonds, the cost of studs depends on the total carat weight of the stones, the amount of metal, and the design. Diamond stud earrings typically range from $1000 to $5000 for CTWs between 0.25 and 1.0. Studs with CTW of 2.00 can cost $10,000 or more - but 2.00 CTW is an unusually large size for stud earrings.
What is the best diamond cut for studs?
The best cut is typically the round brilliant cut, as it has the most sparkle and fire.
What is the best diamond clarity for studs?
The best clarity ranges from VS1 to SI, as inclusions or blemishes will not be visible to the naked eye.
What is the best diamond carat weight for studs?
The best carat weight will depend on personal preference and budget. Some people prefer smaller, more delicate studs, while others prefer larger, more dramatic studs.
What is the best diamond color for studs?
The best color is typically G-H, as these diamonds are colorless and will have the most sparkle.
