Did you know that we have a Diamond Stud Earring Trade Up Program?
It’s a great way to add diamond studs to your wardrobe. Start with any size diamonds by buying from our in-stock inventory and we will take them in as trade when you’re ready to upgrade to the next size – just pay the difference!
What size diamond studs should you buy?
Buy the diamond size that best fits your budget. Keep in mind that when talking about diamond studs we often refer to carat total weight, so if we’re talking about a pair that is 1.0ct then each diamond is 0.50ct.
My recommendation is to try and get into the 1ct total size – this is a great everyday diamond stud that isn’t too small but can also be worn with almost anything. However, if your budget doesn’t allow for it then studs in the 0.40 – 0.50ct total range still look great.
What quality diamond studs should you buy?
We want you to get the biggest size diamonds in your ear without sacrificing the quality too much. On the other hand, there’s no need to go as fine as you would with a diamond engagement ring. My biggest recommendation would be to find diamonds that are really well cut giving you the maximum brilliance. So even if the color and clarity are average, they still have lots of sparkle! Our best selling studs are in the I-J-K color range and SI1-I1 clarity range.
How much do diamond studs cost?
This is a typical range of pricing in our standard qualities (I-J-K color / SI1-I1 clarity), pricing will vary. Contact us for exact pricing and availability.
|Diamond Studs Size||Price Range|
|0.66ct total||$1,500 – $2,000|
|1.0ct total||$3,500 – $4,000|
|1.5ct total||$6,000 – $8,000|
|2.0ct total*||$12k +|
*It’s very hard to find diamond studs in the 2ct+ range. This is because most decent diamonds in that size are graded by a lab (GIA, AGS, etc) and are priced at a premium. Therefore at this size we usually have to find matched graded diamonds.
What’s the fine print?
There’s no required action at the time of buying your first diamond studs. At the time of trading up, we require the original diamond studs with the receipt. The new studs must be the next benchmark size. For example, if your first pair were 0.50ct total, then the new pair must be 0.66ct total or bigger (increasing from 0.25ct each to a 0.33ct each).
