WILL PRINCESS CUT DIAMOND EARRINGS MATCH A ROUND CUT RING? THE DO’S AND DON’TS OF COORDINATING DIAMONDS

PrincessMatchRoundSo you’ve been given a round cut diamond engagement ring, but you still love the princess cut diamond earrings that you’ve had for a couple of years. Is it okay to wear both at the same time? As with any type of jewelry or fashion accessory, there are do’s and don’ts when it comes to coordinating diamonds. But with a little bit of help, we can make sure you don’t commit any fashion faux pas as you wear your most precious jewels.

In the simplest of terms, there is nothing inherently wrong with mixing and matching various types of diamonds. Most people do not have a keen enough eye to spot the difference between cuts without a close inspection. And even if they do notice that the diamonds you are wearing are of dissimilar design, they probably won’t give it much thought. The elegance and sparkle of the diamonds is the only thing that should match.  However, some pieces of jewelry will carry more value—both sentimental and monetary—and you’ll want to accentuate those pieces above all else.

For a sample scenario, let’s say you’ve received a pair of .75 D-FL princess cut diamond stud earrings as a holiday gift. These dazzling earrings are going to draw quite a bit of attention. However, you’ve recently become engaged to the man of your dreams, and he proposed with a 1.75 ct D-I3 round cut classic basket 3-stone ring. More than likely, you’re going to want to focus all the attention of others to the ring, as it has a higher level of sentimental value and also represents a major milestone in your life. While the engagement ring will spur conversation and interest regardless of whatever other jewelry you may be wearing, it wouldn’t hurt to avoid any potential distractions that could stem from wearing a pair of princess cut diamond earrings.

With every piece of diamond jewelry you purchase from Dara’s Diamonds—whether it be a round cut diamond engagement ring or princess cut diamond earrings—you can rest easy in knowing that you are receiving the highest level of quality available. We take so much pride in our line of diamond jewelry that we warranty your purchase for the entirety of its existence. Not only that, but when you make a purchase from our catalogue, we also offer an appraisal from a 3rd party jeweler, so you will know that your new diamond earrings or engagement ring meets and exceeds all industry standards.  Please feel free to browse our wide selection of rings, earrings, and pendants to find the perfect combination for any occasion.

JEWELRY ISN’T JUST FOR WOMEN: MEN’S DIAMOND EARRINGS AND MORE

mens diamond earIs looking great exclusively a woman’s prerogative? In today’s fast-changing modern culture, the answer, happily, is no. Today, modern men are discovering the incredible masculine appeal of staying fit, dressing well and wearing well-chosen, beautifully designed jewelry, specifically men’s diamond earrings–and more!

Why should women have all the fun? Today, it’s an open secret that men enjoy spiffing themselves up and looking good just as much as women do. If looking great involves adding a little extra sparkle with the addition of some fashionable jewelry, like men’s diamond earrings, for example, so much the better! Let’s take a look at some of the earring styles available today that work especially well for men.

Earrings for Men, Pierced and All

Years ago, only the most exotic and unusual men indulged in ear piercing. Today, this once far-out style has been welcomed in society as a way for men to assert their individuality and to accommodate a range of jewelry styles—including earrings.

Today, men’s diamond earrings are seen as an understated way to add a touch of elegance and some definite dazzle to a formal suit or casual ensemble. The look of a gold stud diamond earring on a man is definitely dazzling, while also slightly exotic. It’s a can’t-miss detail that adds extra interest to his overall look and gives him a real dose of sartorial flair.

Let’s take a look at some of the styles in earrings he may want to choose to heighten the look of a new suit or sweater ensemble.

The Masculine Appeal of Gold Stud Diamond Earrings

There are many ways for men to wear jewelry, from gold rings to chains to pendants, but earrings create an especially eye-catching and intriguing look for a man.

The gold diamond stud earring is a truly classic accessory that offers a sense of understated elegance; it offers a touch of dazzle without being over the top in any way.

Diamond stud earrings come in various cuts and styles, ranging from princess cut diamond earrings in a square setting to earrings with round cut diamonds. Both of these styles offer plenty of dazzle and lots of interest, and can be worn in your choice of yellow gold, white gold or platinum settings. The shimmer of these gems will give him a definite sparkle at any social occasion, whether it’s an upscale cocktail party, wedding, or an intimate dinner at a favorite restaurant.

Mixing and Matching

Once a man has taken the leap and decided on the right choice of diamond earrings, he may want to play on this added bit of sparkle by wearing diamond cuff links, in a similar style, as well as a ring. He may also want to stay consistent with the choice of metals in all his jewelry, say in all yellow or white gold, to give his look real impact. Ultimately, it’s all about choosing jewelry that highlights his masculinity and embraces his inner sense of style with an extra bit of dazzle.
