Timeless Diamond Stud Earrings from Brian Gavin Diamonds

Simple, elegant, and always beautiful – diamond stud earrings are a classic gift choice for any occasion. With many options and styles to choose from, such as different colors, settings, and shapes, diamond stud earrings truly remain a timeless staple piece of any wardrobe.  

Whether you’re attending a formal dinner, a dress-up party, or heading to the mall, diamond studs made from Brian Gavin Signature diamonds will complete your look.

We follow the four Cs of diamonds, which stands for a diamond’s cut, clarity, color, and carat. Brian Gavin has high parameters for each of these attributes to ensure the diamond offers maximum light performance. When you buy a pair of diamond studs set with Brian Gavin diamonds, you get a piece of jewelry that lasts forever in your collection.

How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Diamond Earrings

Finding the right pair of diamond studs can be difficult because there are so many styles and information when it comes to buying diamonds. Here are some tips to help make your purchase easier.

Selecting the Size and Shape of your Diamonds

Round or cushion cut diamond stud earrings feature soft curves and complement many face shapes. The princess-cut diamond's square shape is also a popular choice among our customers. While you should consider how well the size and shape of your diamond studs fit your earlobes, the decision is ultimately yours. Any pair of diamond earrings from Brian Gavin Diamonds will have the greatest brilliance and sparkle – and the best value.

Metal Type

Brian Gavin Diamonds has a curated selection of white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and platinum diamond studs. The type of metal you choose should blend well with your skin color and tone. Yellow gold is a favorite for people with warmer skin tones, while white gold or platinum are great choices for neutral and cooler tones. We have 14k gold and 18k gold depending on your desired gold content and budget.

Earring Settings

Diamond stud earring settings should fit snugly against your earlobe. Three- and four-prong martini diamond studs and basket-style settings work well with many styles and have an elegant look. The minimalistic metal shows more of the beauty of your Brian Gavin Signature diamonds. We craft each pair of diamond stud earrings to the high, strict standards of Brian Gavin Diamonds.

Different Types of Earring Backs

There are different types of earring backs to keep the earring secured. 

Friction backs are one of the most common. They are convenient and easy to put on and take off. You can compare friction backs to screw back diamond earrings, which function like typical screws and might keep the earrings in place better. Another option is La Poussette locking backs which feature a special groove that the diamond earrings latch on to.

A variety of Brilliant Diamond Earring Choices

Browse our site to find a curated selection of custom lab-grown diamonds set in different diamond stud earring settings and mounts. From princess basket setting studs to bezel drop earrings and martini diamond studs, there’s an option for everyone. 

Brian Gavin Signature diamonds are crafted with care, precision, and quality to ensure you get the most sparkle and reflection out of your jewelry. 

Diamond Stud Earrings FAQ

How much should you pay for diamond studs?

You should have a budget in mind based on your finances and how much you want to spend. The price depends mainly on the carat weight of your diamond earrings. Common diamond sizes include half-carat total weight, three-quarters total carat weight, one-carat total weight, etc. Larger-carat diamonds will be more expensive than smaller-carat diamonds.

What are the best settings for diamond stud earrings?

Martini diamond studs and basket-style earrings are common settings for diamond earrings. People prefer martini earring settings because the three-prong design allows the earrings to fit better on the ear. Basket-style settings have a flat bottom, and the diamonds are set further from the ear than martini settings.

What are the 4 Cs for diamond earrings?

The four Cs of diamonds are:

At Brian Gavin Diamonds, we also include a fifth C, Cut performance, for our top-quality diamonds. Cut performance refers to the quality and light performance of the diamond. All diamonds at Brian Gavin Diamonds are carefully assessed and graded based on the diamond attributes to ensure the quality of each pair of diamond earrings.

What is considered a good size diamond for stud earrings?

When you’re picking diamond stud earrings, you should consider a size that suits your face and preference. Also consider the occasion you’re wearing them for. Everyday diamond earrings should be between 0.25 and 1 ct, but bigger diamonds might be the way to go for a formal event like a wedding! 

3 prong vs. 4 prong earrings

Diamond studs have metal prongs that hold the diamond in place. When comparing a 3 prong martini vs. a 4 prong basket style diamond stud earring, there are a few things to know. 

First, the three-prong martini setting is popular and many of our clients report that they are very comfortable to wear. These earrings come with La Pousette earring backs. Four-prong basket style earrings are one of the most popular earrings you typically find in stores, and they typically come with friction backs or screw backs.

What is the best color for diamond stud earrings?

Deciding the best color for diamond stud earrings depends on your preference. You can get bright white colorless diamonds, colorless diamonds with warm yellow tones, or fancy-colored diamonds like blue, green, orange, and red. 

What is the best clarity for diamond earrings?

Diamond clarity measures the diamond’s quality based on its internal characteristics’ visual appearance, blemishes, and inclusions. Most diamond stud earrings are I-1 clarity, which means any flaws are visible without magnification from 9 to 12 inches away. We also use other clarity levels of diamonds, so choose the best clarity for diamond earrings based on your budget and the quality of the diamonds you want.

Can I wear my diamond studs all the time?

Yes, you can wear your diamond studs all the time if you want. High-quality diamond stud earrings won’t lose their shine even if you wear them daily and are versatile for a simple or more dressed-up or elevated look. Whether it’s going to work, attending a formal event, playing a sport, or even going to sleep, your earrings will hold their shine and durability. 

Can I wear my diamond earrings in the shower?

The setting, polish, and overall quality of diamonds can decrease with prolonged exposure to water. The soaps, lotions, and body oils might reduce the sparkle factor of your diamond. It’s best to take them off and place them in a safe area when you shower.
