How can I design my Diamond earrings?

Diamond, the most popular gemstone, is the hardest naturally occurring substance. Another property is that it is tough, which means that it resists the breakage which may be caused by a forceful impact. 

Diamonds are also available in many rich colors like red, pink, brown, purple, blue, yellow, and every color between them. An interesting fact about these colorful diamonds is that they are made naturally below the surface of the Earth just like a white diamond. These diamonds get the color from the changes made to their chemical structure when they form. This formation process alters the way they reflect light and the color our eyes perceive.

Another rare and most popular diamond these days is the black diamond, found only in the Central African Republic and Brazil.

Diamonds are graded on the basis of 4Cs, that is, cut, clarity, carat and color. The basic white diamond is priced based on cut, clarity and carat, however, color grading is different. The more intense the color, the more expensive the diamond will be in case of color diamonds whereas the opposite is true for colorless diamonds.

A diamond can be worn as earrings, necklace, ring or even bracelet. A diamond jewelry is one of the most chosen jewelry and can be worn at any place. You can carry it with office formals, office casual, casuals, or even at parties. In fact, just wearing the diamond earrings completes the attire whether it’s formal or informal. It adds an elegance and classy touch to the attire.

Types of Diamond Earrings

Diamond earrings can be designed by firstly selecting the type of earrings that would suit your face such as studs, huggies, hoops, drop or solitaire. Thereafter you need to select the size of diamond that you would like to wear as per your budget. Let’s look at each style of earrings below.

  1. Diamond Earrings – Studs

Diamond earrings such as solitaires are the most in demand when it comes to wearing studs, as they go well with any kind of outfit during the day or night. Choose the studs according to the size and carat that best suit your style. The shape of the stud can be chosen from round, oval, square, pear, princess or emerald. Then choose the setting of white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. This completes designing your diamond earrings or studs which can be used with any outfit and in every occasion or even a casual outing.

Diamond solitaires are the most expensive studs that make you look attractive with any attire you prefer wearing.

  1. Diamonds Earrings – Hoops

Hoops can be designed the same way as studs. However, hoops are long dangles which can be worn only with special attires like authentic indian clothing, party outfits or a designer one piece. 

Hoops shape is of one kind only and also have only limited diamond shape that is supported in hoops, those are round and oval. However, you can choose from all the settings like white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. 

  1. Diamond Earrings – Huggies

Huggies are almost similar to hoops in shape but huggies are relatively smaller in size and hug the ears closely. This type of diamond earrings are more preferable to be worn with casual dresses as they are extremely simple in looks yet quite appealing. Huggies diamond earrings do bring that spark on your face, however, they may make you look a little under-dressed at parties because of their small size and simple look. 

Huggies diamond earrings look best in white gold setting, however, it also depends on your choice. To design huggies, you need to choose the shape of the diamond from round and oval, then select the setting from white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum. 

  1. Diamond Earrings – Drop

Drop earring is a smart piece and goes really well with all your western semi-formal outfits. The diamond shape that you should choose in a drop diamond earrings can be round, oval or the princess shape of the diamond. 

These diamond earrings are not too small like studs and not too big like hoops and therefore,they can be perfect for those who choose to keep their overall look smart and minimal. Even if you do not want to load yourself with a necklace, these earrings can complete your look by themselves.

Pairing diamonds with other stones

Diamond earrings can be paired with other stones as well like emerald – green, ruby – red and sapphire – blue. The shine of diamond and color of the stones blend really well while keeping their original feel alive. When going to parties or big gatherings, the combination of diamond and stones work the best. 

You can either match the color of the stone to your dress or keep it contrast to add that extra flavor to your attire. These days, contrast color combinations are most popular and hence these earrings can become your best friends for gatherings.

You can have these diamond earrings in the form of studs, drops or long hangings. If you choose to wear long hangings, you can leave your neck naked as the earrings can fill the space giving you the classy look. If you choose to wear studs, they can be paired with a single liner made with a combination of stones and diamond to match your studs. This gives you a full set ready in your collection of jewelry. 

The setting for this combination can be any out of white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. However, I will recommend white gold or rose gold setting to embrace the whole look of your diamond earrings or full set. Majority women like to choose white gold settings.

I hope the above points help you design your own diamond earrings as per your choice and preferences.
