Naturally, many individuals have an assortment of questions in regards to diamonds earrings. To help you make a little more sense of it all we have come up with some of the most frequently asked questions about diamonds earrings.

1. How big do diamond earrings need to be?

Diamond earring sizes depend on one's budget, taste, and stature. They do not “need” to be any size; just the right size for you. Even if your budget is quite large, big earrings may not be the way to go if you are a petite person. One may prefer extraordinary diamond and gemstone earrings, or elegant studs. It really all depends on the taste, and keeping in mind the size of the earlobes. If they are really petite, large stones can potentially be a little uncomfortable on the earlobe and may hang off quite heavily.

2. Will earrings with big diamonds be too heavy for my ears?

This is another question that is rather individual. Some people have very sensitive ears while others do not. Some have an earring hole positioned very low on the earlobe making even light earrings hang. Heavy earrings would only make matters worse. If you are an avid earring wearer you should know how much weight your ears can handle. In cases where you are indeed sensitive to heavy weight, you should steer away from larger earrings styles, even if you can afford it and have been eyeing them for a while. Consider an elegant pair of studs, perhaps in a really unique color.

5. What metals are generally used for diamond earrings?

Like most other jewelry pieces, diamond earrings are usually set in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. Though platinum is a terrific choice, it can be costly. Since earrings do not have the downside of constantly being rubbed like rings, causing them to need re-polishing every so often, a platinum setting is unnecessary. White gold can most definitely suffice, and at a lower cost.
