If you need help in choosing a pair of diamond studs, our most popular versions are those that use the claw setting. This is because it allows the maximum amount of light to enter from the base and sides of the diamond. This light is reflected and refracted within the diamond causing the earrings to fire and sparkle. It is used in many of The Diamond Store's earrings, including the Olivia Princess, Olivia 18KY, Chloe Round and Chloe 18KY collections of silver diamond studs earrings.
A more contemporary diamond setting is the rub-over style. Here the metal securing the diamond is literally rubbed over it to hold it in place and is used in the Emily Round and Emily 18k Collections of round diamond stud earrings. It is an attractive modern setting which can make the diamond appear bigger, although it does not allow as much light to enter into the diamond thereby reducing the amount of sparkle.
Interesting Facts About Diamond Studs Earrings......
As diamond stud earrings are such a timeless piece of jewellery it is worth investing in some good quality diamonds. The Diamond Store recommend that the absolute minimum quality of diamonds you buy should be of colour H or I and clarity I1-2.
On the colour scale a diamond rated as H or I is a white diamond with no easily noticeable colour tint to the naked eye. A clarity of between I1-2 means any imperfections in the diamond can only be noticed if looking at very closely, within 6 inches. Obviously the smaller the stone, the harder it is to see any inclusions anyway.
Brilliant round diamonds are the most popular choice for diamond stud earrings in the UK, but if you want something a little different you can go for shapes like the princess cut diamond stud earrings. The earring attachment you choose is also important; screw back stud earrings offer the most secure fitting over a butterfly back or clip on earrings.
