What Makes a Good Quality Diamond Stud?diamond earrings boca raton

This may come as a surprise but it’s not how much the diamond cost or if the diamond is certified that makes it a quality diamond. We’ll get into diamond certification a little bit later in the article. For now, we’re going to talk about how to find a good quality diamond. What things you need to look for, how those things can differ, and we’ll show you some of our favorite products along the way.

The Four C’s

Now that you’ve got your budget all figured out and you know how to find a good quality diamond, it’s time to take a look at the four C’s. These are the cut, color, clarity, and carat of a diamond. Each of the four C’s will ultimately determine the overall quality of a diamond by a grader or retailer. Read more about the four C’s here.

The Clarity

What we call birthmarks, diamonds call inclusions. These imperfections or inclusions found on a diamond are measured using a clarity chart. The clarity of a diamond refers to the degree in which inclusions are present on the surface of the diamond. This could be a chip or a dent in the surface or some sort of discoloration. 

Though it’s rare for a diamond to have a perfect clarity, most of the diamonds that are sold have little to no noticeable flaws. So even if the clarity level of a diamond is rated high, you may not be able to notice the imperfection. In fact, most if not all diamond flaws can only be seen through a loupe tool that magnifies to 10x.

The Color

For those of you who are looking to purchase a more nontraditional pair of studs, you might want to consider a pair of colored diamond studs. Many diamonds occur naturally in a range of colors. Some of these are rarer and more valuable than others. And some diamonds are graded using a letter system. Each letter serves as a different color grade and just as the size of a carat can vary in price.pearl stud earrings

The Carat

Carats are an important component to consider when it comes to picking out the perfect diamond stud. This is the biggest factor when it comes to pricing. While carats do refer to a diamond’s weight, most people use them to refer to the size of it. Diamonds with higher carat weights can often appear to be (and are) larger than a one with a smaller carat weight. However, proportions can and will also affect its appearance. If a diamond is cut too deep will hold more of its mass at the bottom of the stone, where it can’t be seen. But if that same diamond were to be cut too shallow instead it will then hold more mass at the top, where it can be seen. 

Featuring 1.43 ctw round cut diamonds, this pair of stud earrings is simply gorgeous. They are set in a beautifully crafted white gold setting which makes them elegant and sophisticated. With these earrings in your ear, you’ll catch the eye of everyone that walks past you.

Diamond Certification

A diamond certification is basically a report card. It’s a report card for the diamond that reflects each of the four C’s we talked about above along with other details like its measurements and unique traits like symmetry and fluorescence. As a result, diamonds get certified by sending them to a third party grading lab like the Gemological Institute of America, the world’s largest grading laboratory.

After the diamond goes through a grading process and receives a unique identification number it gets sent back to the retailer with a report. However, it’s important to note that grading labs often vary in their grading structure criteria. Their quality control, standards, and grading criteria can all differ. They are not held to any objective standard.

Because it’s like comparing apples to oranges, having a certificate does not denote a better quality diamond from one that is not certified. Certificates can, however, be a useful tool when it comes to shopping for diamonds. You really just want to take your time when shopping for diamonds. And don’t buy a diamond without doing your homework.
