There are many different styles of diamond earrings, and one of the most popular is the stud. Often quite small by design, the diamond stud is favored by those that are looking for a pair of earrings that are simple yet elegant and feminine.
Despite being the smallest type of earrings, a diamond stud can be worn again and again, in part due to its size, in part due to its design. Diminutive they may be, diamond studs are highly prized and can, surprisingly enough, run into many thousands of dollars due to the size, cut and carat of the diamond.

Surprisingly enough it’s not unknown for the rich and the famous to walk around with a whole lot of carat pinned onto their ears.
For those that are interested in buying a pair, the two most favored diamond shapes are the round and the princess cut. Both are classic designs, relying on the diamonds beauty and the facets as opposed to a larger, more pretentious stone or setting.
Happily, yo don’t need a huge bank balance in order to purchase a pair, as there are plenty of budget-friendly pairs on the market. A good way to purchase a pair that won’t blow a massive whole in your finances is to opt for something classy yet inexpensive.
