Diamond earrings are like punctuation marks for your wardrobe. They are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Being a timeless classic they add brilliance to any outfit. Diamond earrings make the perfect gift because they are always the right fit.

The shape of stone can be round, princess, emerald, asscher, cushion, marquise, radiant, oval, pear, heart. And the key points are cut, color, clarity and carat weight. Cut is the most important characteristic because it has the greatest influence on a diamond's sparkle. Color is the second most important characteristic because the human eye detects sparkle first (diamond cut) and color second.
Clarity is the third most important characteristic because most imperfections cannot be seen unless under professional magnification. Carat weight is the most well-known and misunderstood characteristic. Smaller carat weight diamonds will appear larger with higher cut grades. No matter what the occasion, diamond earrings look and feel amazing!
