Diamond Earring Buying Guide

Are you looking for a gift for someone special. If so, one option to consider is a pair of  earrings. No matter whether you are looking for something for your partner, friend, mother or  sibling. A pair of diamond earnings will never fail. Not only do diamonds have the wow factor. They are easier to buy for someone else than say a bracelet, which may fall off their wrist. We will take you through the different points to consider when purchasing earrings. You can be sure you end up with the perfect pair of diamond earrings.

Diamond earring styles

STYLE – One of the key factors to consider is the style of the earrings. This will depend on the style of the person you are purchasing for. Are they someone who loves to stand out with the clothes they wear. If so, you could go for something bold and unique, like a pair of hoop earrings. Are they elegant and do they prefer classic clothing. If so, drop earrings could be the way to go.

If you are feeling unsure, or the person in question prefers subtle jewellery, you can’t go wrong with stud earrings. Diamond studs are simple yet stunning, and they are subtle for all occasions. Everyone needs a pair and don’t be fooled into thinking  stud earrings are all the same. There are so many different styles to select from. Princess cut diamonds are exceptionally popular for their modern appearance. While many people also love Martini style diamond stud earrings too.

 Diamond earring metal

METAL – The next point to consider is the metal used. You should choose from the following if you want supreme quality – 18K white gold, 18k yellow gold and platinum jewellery. Needless to say, platinum is the more expensive option of the three. Yet, if you are buying for someone special, it’s worth it. Not only does quality dictate the metal you are going to select. It also reflects the recipient’s taste. Pay attention to the jewellery they usually wear to determine what type of metal they would prefer.

Choosing your diamonds

DIAMOND – Of course, you need to carefully consider the diamonds used. While you may not need to scrutinise the diamond as critically as you would if you were buying an engagement ring . You will still want to make sure you select a quality diamond. After all, if you go for something with a very low colour grading. It will show, as the diamond will appear yellow. Moreover, if the cut is poor, the earrings won’t sparkle, which defeats the purpose of buying diamonds. You also need to consider the carat weight, with everything from 0.15ct to 10ct available. Also, make sure that both diamonds have similar measurements, table size, depth, clarity, and colour, so that they look the same.

Carol Woolton launches capsule jewellery collection

Audrey HepburnYou probably know her best as the jewellery editor for Vogue, but Carol Woolton has shown she has talent when it comes to designing jewellery too, with the recent release of her capsule jewellery collection on QVC.

Simple elegance

Her pieces are designed to be beautiful, elegant and simple – as she says herself, they are “The jewellery equivalent of a white t-shirt, blazer or little black dress.” In essence, she has crated staple pieces which can dress any outfit up or down.

Day to night

Her gold-plated hoop earrings are perfect for everyday wear, whether you’re going for drinks with friends or a romantic meal for two, and we love the modern twist of her Black and White Agate Diamond Ring. Add a touch of glamour to your outfit with the Sterling Silver Black Spinel and Moonstone Circle Drop Earrings; they’re perfect to add just the right amount of sparkle, taking a work outfit into something suitable for an evening function.

Classic style

Carol’s range focuses on timeless elegance yet many of her designs are distinctly modern. Her Pearl and Black Spinel necklace is a classic string of pearls which would look simply stunning teamed with an Audrey Hepburn inspired shift dress for a day at the office, or the races!

Made in Chelsea star unveils new jewellery collection

GeckoMade in Chelsea’s most expressive star, 23 year old Lucy Watson, has just released her new animal-inspired jewellery range. Lucy, who is currently in New York filming for the reality TV show, has created a 15-piece collection, ‘Creature’, inspired by her childhood growing up on a rural farm in Surrey.

Previous success stories

Lucy is the latest of a number of Made in Chelsea stars to dip her toe into the competitive world of jewellery design; Rosie Fortescue and Amber Atherton are a couple of other co-stars who have already released their own successful ranges.

Animal magic

In the past, Lucy has campaigned for PETA and with her passion for animals, it’s no surprise that they have become the theme of her new jewellery collection. The range consists of sterling silver and gold plate pieces, ranging in price from £40 – £150, so there’s something for all budgets. Creature’s Shark Jaw Earrings are set to be a popular choice (they’re Lucy’s favourites), whilst the vampy Snake Fang Ring will also be flying off the shelves. The range is designed and manufactured in London, home to the famous jewellery street of Hatton Garden.

First smartphones, now smart jewellery

At CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week, the emphasis was firmly on wearable technology – but CSR, a UK company based in Cambridge, have taken the concept one step further than most. Their Bluetooth jewellery is not only incredibly functional, it’s stylish too.

Designer credentials

Designed in collaboration with boutique jewellery brand Cellini, the Bluetooth Smart Jewellery range features pieces which can alert the wearer to smartphone notifications, emit perfume at a set time of day or even change colour to suit the wearer’s mood!

With 72% of people surveyed by CSR insisting they needed wearable technology to look stylish, it seems the firm have filled a gap in the market, creating beautiful, cutting-edge designs which complement the wearer’s personal style.

One piece fits all

Some of the pieces on show in Las Vegas allowed the wearer the ability to alter the jewellery’s colour or brightness to match their outfit or mood, and the entire range is designed to work seamlessly with Apple technology, although some functions will also work with Android phones.

Paul Williamson of CSR commented: “We wanted to give our customers a glimpse of what they could do with this technology. The possibility for truly wearable technology devices is endless and we’re looking forward to seeing what they develop with it in the future.”

Dancing Diamonds – the latest craze

The purpose of diamond jewellery is to create a stunning, noticeable sparkle that helps you to stand out in a crowd, so it’s no surprise that Japanese jewellery designer Hidetaka Dobashi’s latest innovation, known as the Twinkle Setting, is proving such a hit across the globe.


Launched in Hong Kong last week, the setting suspends the stone with two fine points which hold it away from the wearer’s body. This means the stone is continually moving and the swinging motion creates constant sparkle.

Something different

The concept is totally different from any other diamond jewellery currently available on the market, and Dobashi has been working on the idea since September 2010. His patented design, which makes the stone appear to “dance”, was a huge hit at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair recently.

Manufactured in China and Vietnam, Dobashi’s jewellery company Crossfor has applied for international patents in the US and Europe, which means this innovative, stylish jewellery could soon be available to buy in the UK.

Innovative company

This is not the first time Dobashi’s company has come up with new ideas – in 1999 he invented the “Crossfor Cut”, a brilliant cut diamond with 46 facets which he claims “achieves a unique cross-shaped sparkle.”

For now it seems those in the UK will have to be happy with videos of the “dancing stone” jewellery until it is available to buy in Europe.
