Diamond Stud Earrings

A pair of Diamond Stud Earrings will make her smile. Diamond Earrings became popular during the Eighteenth Century thanks to the French court of Louis XVI. Women have been in love with them ever since because they add vibrancy to every woman’s eyes. Diamond Stud Earrings are timeless and they are always in style.

What separates a Charleston Alexander pair of Diamond Stud Earrings from other earrings you will see in the Washington, D.C.-metro area is the hours we spend matching pairs of stones. Just like a relationship, a perfect pair is essential for success.

Just like people, every diamond is unique. Each stone has its own cut, clarity, color and carat weight. Known as the 4C’s, these are the industry standard for categorizing and grading diamonds. However, this is only the beginning when it comes to creating a perfect pair of earrings and unfortunately, this is where most quality jewelers will stop. However, this isn’t enough to create a magical pair. Just as every 5.6, 25-year-old brunette with blue eyes is different from every other woman with these same attributes, every diamond is similarly unique.

As diamond earrings sit so close to the eyes, there is no margin for error. If the stones are flawed or they don’t pair well together, the overall beauty of the earrings is somewhat lost. The purpose of diamond earrings is to enhance and accentuate the sparkle of a woman’s eyes; they should be seen and appreciated but not necessarily noticed. Improperly paired earrings can draw a viewer’s eyes away from the woman to the earrings themselves. The human eye finds symmetry naturally pleasing and when faced with asymmetry there is a natural tendency to study the differences, defeating the purpose of the earrings.

At Charleston Alexander, we import hundreds of the highest quality diamonds at a time. We then sit at our jeweler's bench and spend hours creating perfect pairs of diamonds for our Diamond Stud Earrings. The work is intense and we take it personally. To us this is a match that will last a lifetime…
