Diamond Earring

Diamond earrings look great on you, whether they are for a wedding, formal occasion, or just to add sparkle to your ensemble. There are many types of earrings to choose from, so you can pick your favorite style! You can achieve many different kinds of effects with these shimmering gems. In today’s blog, Preusser Jewelers discusses the different styles of diamond earrings available.

Studded Diamond Earrings

Studded diamond earrings are a model of simplicity. Studs often feature a single gem set in precious metal for each earring. They fit neatly against your ear and don’t get in the way. Stud earrings are perfect if you have an active lifestyle or you want to wear diamond earrings every day. Stud diamond earrings, also called solitaires, are the ideal gift for all ages, face shapes, and skin tones. They create a classic yet subtle effect that looks great for every style. Don’t believe that studs mean smaller gems! You can find studded earrings up to 2 or more carats in weight.

Halo Diamond Earrings

Halo diamond earrings have a large central gem surrounded by a circle of smaller diamonds. They look like an angel’s halo! These earrings are a step above studs in that they have more than one gem in them. They are more sparkly than studs. Halos are also an excellent choice for jewelry to wear every day at work. They may also dangle below the ear. Try a halo with a diamond in the middle surrounded by colored gemstones, or the other way around for something different.

Drop Diamond Earrings  

Drop earrings are also called dangles. These types of diamond earrings are more elaborate than studs as you could find two, three, or even four or more diamonds lined up in a row dropping down the design. How many diamonds dangle depends on the size of the gems. Drop earrings are perfect for formal occasions as well as a night out on the town! Think dressing up to attend a theatrical performance, symphony concert, or a wedding. Drop earrings with diamonds make a statement.

Hoop Diamond Earrings  

Hoop diamond earrings are a classic, and you have two basic choices here. Small hoops add a bit of glimmer to your ensemble and work perfectly for everyday wear. Larger hoops have a row of 10 or more gems and give your accessories extra sparkle. Diamond earrings in a hoop shape can have multiple hoops, asymmetrical designs, or two or more hoops side-by-side.
