If you are looking to wow your loved one with the gift of diamonds, but don’t necessarily want to spend a fortune, consider the beautiful, yet affordable, gift of diamond earrings. Diamond earrings are not only a classic and timeless piece that will never go out of style, because of their generally smaller size than rings or necklaces, they tend to be available at much lower price points for consumers on a tighter budget. Diamond earrings are also appropriate for nearly any age group and come in several sizes and shapes to suite anyone’s taste.
The most classic of all diamond earring styles are solitaire diamond earrings. Solitaire earrings are basically a single stone, set in precious metal, meant to be worn in pierced ears. Solitaire earrings come in a range of carat sizes which makes finding a smaller size appropriate for your daughter or a larger carat weight for your wife simple as can be. They are also available in nearly any shape imaginable. A pair of heart shaped solitaire diamond earrings make a perfect Valentine’s gift or an extra special ‘just because I love you’ present that is guaranteed to melt her heart without breaking your bank account. Princess cut solitaire diamond earrings are also very popular, as are classic round cuts.
The other beauty of diamond earrings lies in the fact that they are suitable for everyday wear. Unlike more extravagant diamond pieces, they don’t necessarily have to sit in a jewelry box collecting dust, only to be worn for special or formal occasions. A simple pair of diamond solitaire earrings is appropriate for the workplace, where a professional appearance is expected, but also perfect for a night out, where just a bit of sparkle and shine is all you need.
