Tips For Choosing Everyday Skydiamond Earrings

Tips For Choosing Everyday Skydiamond Earrings

Skydiamond stud earrings are a classic staple in any jewellery collection. They add a touch of sophistication and glamour to any outfit and can be worn day to night. We’re here to help you choose a pair of studs that will never go out of style, to be loved and cherished through generations. Whether you’re buying earrings for yourself or as a gift for a special someone, here’s our guide to choosing Skydiamond earrings that you can wear everyday.


Setting a Budget for Diamond Earrings


Budget is often the first thought when considering purchasing Skydiamond earrings. Common questions can be, “Are they worth it?” and “How often will I wear them?”. We always like to remind customers that purchasing Skydiamond studs is an investment, they are a timeless option that will never go out of style.  

That being said, your budget is personal and comes down to what you feel comfortable spending, so we offer various products at different price points. Your overall budget will determine the size and quality of the Skydiamonds; however, no matter what design you choose, you can be confident that they will elevate your everyday look with added sparkle. 

Choosing a Diamond Shape for Earrings


At Skydiamond, we offer 5 different shapes, Asscher, Emerald, Oval, Pear, and Round Brilliant. 

If you are looking for something more classic and popular for your everyday earrings, the round shape could be for you. They let the most amount of light enter the diamond meaning they are sure to catch your loved ones eyes. 

If a modern, unique style appeals to you, then Oval or Pear could be the perfect choice. The Oval shape is an elongated version of the round shape, whereas the Pear (sometimes referred to as “Teardrop”) has an elegant and bold feel. 

The Asscher and Emerald shapes are perfect for giving a “Vintage'' feel to your everyday look. The Asscher is easily recognised for its distinctive square shape with edged corners, whereas the Emerald is a step cut, and looks almost like an elongated Asscher. It doesn’t have quite the same sparkle as an Asscher, but it does appear to look bigger. 

Choosing your Earring setting


Style and durability are the key things to consider when choosing the setting for your everyday Skydiamond earrings. Despite the Skydiamond being the centrepiece of the earring, the setting will not only hold the Skydiamond in place, but will compliment or limit how it is displayed.


3-Prong Setting 

With the least amount of metal, the 3-prong setting allows a strong eye-catching sparkle. Typically a V-shape that resembles a pear, this style allows for the diamond to sit lower and allows the light to hit the Skydiamond from every angle, meaning you can experience the maximum light and sparkle. 

4-Prong Setting 

The most classic setting for Skydiamond stud earrings, the 4-prongs secure the Skydiamond like a basket pulling the setting towards the earlobe. With slightly more metal than the 3-Prong, you can still be sure to experience maximum light from this setting. Due to their flat base, a 4-prong can often be more comfortable than the 3-prong, meaning a great alternative for everyday wear. 


Bezel settings hold the Skydiamond in place with a metal band that completely surrounds the Skydiamond. It’s modern style and safe setting means the bezel is often a favourite. It is classed as the safest setting for your everyday wear, however it does limit light exposure and doesn’t showcase the full Skydiamond.

At Skydiamond, all of our earrings are handcrafted to the highest quality to ensure the diamond is at limited risk of damage or falling, and in the event this does so, we offer warranty on our products. 

Choosing a metal type for your Diamond Earrings

Once you have chosen your shape and setting of your earrings, it’s time to explore the metal choice. This is often the easiest decision to make as many people already have a preferred metal, but if you're unsure about which metal to choose, we have explored your options below. 

Recycled Yellow gold

Add a touch of luxury and tradition to your every day uniform with yellow gold, one of the most traditional metals to give you a classic look. Complimenting classic / vintage dressers. 

Recycled White gold 

Sophisticated and modern, whilst cooler in tone, a white gold metal will complement the modern and contemporary dressers. 

Recycled platinum

Looking very similar to white gold, platinum is harder and more durable, whilst hypoallergenic. From a practicality angle, the recycled platinum metal could be an excellent, allergy-friendly choice for your new everyday Skydiamond earrings. 

Now you understand more about the shape, setting and metal, you are in the right place to start looking for your new everyday treasures that you can love for a lifetime.
