The more beautiful a diamond is, the more expensive it is. However, it is possible to find a pair of good diamond stud earrings at a ridiculously low price. Here’s how: buy a well-cut diamond, G-H in color and of “eye-clean” clarity. Though moderately priced, these earrings will give the same dazzle as the outrageously expensive ones.
First, see that the diamond earrings you buy have an excellent cut as this alone brings a dazzle and beauty to the stone. Then, if you invest in diamonds of the G-H color, it will seem opaque when mounted, so you will get the same effect as colorless D-E-F diamond earrings, without paying as much. Third, these diamonds of SI2 clarity are usually “eye-clean” or flawless to the naked eye and cost much lesser than higher clarity diamond earrings. So, if you are willing to compromise just a little in beauty, you can get the diamond earrings of your dreams.
And if you are on a budget, don’t feel embarrassed to invest in diamond earrings of a lower grade. Finally, when you do wear them, they will sparkle on your ears, so why shy away from something good?
How to choose diamonds: Though the best quality of diamond earrings is usually colorless, very rare and expensive, the color of diamonds does not come in the way of their luster or sparkle. So you could buy diamond earrings in the “G-H” range that appear colorless than the “D-F” stones that are more expensive.
Choosing diamond earrings based on clarity: Diamonds with fewer flaws (inclusions) are rare and therefore more highly prized.
