What girl in her right mind wouldn't want a pair of diamond earrings? Even if diamonds aren't really your thing, I'm sure opening a little black box and finding a pair of diamonds staring at you wouldn't hurt. I don't think you'd hurl it across the room. Take me for example. Diamonds, jewelry really, aren't my main interest. I like to know about diamonds so that I can understand how to look at them and how they are categorized, but it's not a big deal if I have them on my ears or fingers.
However, just a little whiff that someone might be purchasing Diamond Earrings for me and I get this girlish feeling of luxury and beauty. What do you do when that hits? Let's say you have decided to get a pair for yourself, or you are getting a gift for someone. You need to know how to buy, what to look for and what questions to ask. Even if you are extremely wealthy and can afford the very best, you still have the possibility of being ripped off.
Deciding on Diamond Earrings
One of the things you will need to decide is the shape of the diamond. This is not the cut, which refers to how the light is refracted and reflected. With shape, you can choose from round, heart, pear, square, oval and others. Some will be more flattering to your face, but it's really just about personal preference.
Have your dealer show you all the shapes of diamond earrings that are available. That way, you know you are getting what you want. You will then need to choose a metal. White gold and platinum are very popular. They also look better on fairer skin. For people on a budget, go with white gold. It's about half as expensive as platinum and looks just as good.
