Keeping all that in mind, this article is going to cover you need to consider when buying a diamond stud earring.
KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE DIAMOND STUDS
A lot of people actually wonder about tis as diamond studs are items made for both men and women, so sometimes, it might be a bit hard to distinguish which is for which. The main feature to look out for when trying to spot the difference is the size and the color. In most cases, the male diamond studs are often bigger than the female diamond studs but per adventure you still can’t tell the difference then you should check out the color. When it comes to the color, seeing a stud with a metal such as rose gold used for the setting would most likely be for females since it is not really a metal used for men’s studs.
DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN WEAR DIAMOND STUDS
There are different ways one can wear a diamond stud as it all depends on your style and sense of fashion plus your personal taste. There is simply no right or wrong way. Just go with your own flow. But just in case you are looking for suggestions, check out what tips we have to offer below
Single studs can also be referred to as Solitaire and this is basically used if you are new to wearing diamond studs and feel like starting slowly. This stud comes with no form of side diamonds or embellishments. It is the perfect choice to go with if you are looking for an understated style plus it is a really popular style in the male fashion trend.
Even though single studs are a more popular option when it comes to male diamond stud trends, the double studs’ option is fast becoming a number one trend. This is a situation whereby you have both ears pierced and have a stud fitted in each. But let’s say you decide to go an extra mile, you could get multiple piercings in the same ear. When you go to a retailer shop and decide to go for the double, they often tend to offer you two single studs instead of a pair which actually costs less. This way, if you get one ear pierced today and decide to pierce the other the coming month, you’ll know you already have a matched pair waiting for you. But this isn’t a must as you can still opt for the single stud if your planned earring budget is lower than the price of the double diamond studs.
KNOWING WHAT DIAMOND STUD TO GO WITH
Remember how we listed various differences between the female and male diamond stud. Well, the most significant difference which wasn’t listed above would be the cut and the carat. Just in case you have no idea what those are, don’t worry, we are here to guide you.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT DIAMOND CUT
When we say cut, we are basically referring to the shape of the diamond and when it comes to male diamonds, the two most popular are the round and the square cuts. Reason why these two cuts are the most popular is simply because they are relatively unisex, and they look good whether worn as a pair or solo. When it comes to picking a cut, the first thing you need to consider is your own taste and also the shape of your face as the shape of a stud can do a lot in complimenting one’s face. If you’re someone who has a round face, then the emerald cut also known as the square cut should be your first option but if it is the other way around which is you having a sort of square like face, then the round cut should be your first option. When you put these things behind your mind, you would most likely end up choosing a diamond stud that not only looks good but also compliments your face.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT DIAMOND CARAT
Picking of a carat is another race of its own. Most people often confuse the term carat as meaning the size of the diamond. You probably did too but carat is simply the weight of the diamond. With that in mind, you should know that the bigger the carat, the more expensive the diamond would be. There is a simple way to know and pick your perfect carat size, but it might sound a bit weird but here goes – your ear lobe.
You need to consider the size of your earlobe before considering what carat size to get as getting a large carat on a small ear lobe would drastically weigh down your ear and as well, getting a small carat on a large ear lobe would not exactly compliment your looks except you are going the almost invincible carat on my ear look. Your taste is also another factor to consider when it comes to making this choice.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT METAL COLOR
It is worth knowing that diamonds compliment any sort of metal they end up on. Keeping that in mind, you should look back at your taste and see what you already own as this would give you a sense of direction. Another strategy to use is the metal color of your wrist watch. Getting a complimentary color as your watch would make your jewelry fashion look more stylish to the public eye.
