Understanding Carat Total Weight

If you are looking at a pair 1 ctw solitaire studs, each diamond within the pair will weigh 0.50ctw. When shopping for diamond studs, it is important to know the carat weight of each diamond.

Think about where you want to wear your studs

You should think about where your studs will be worn when you choose your size for diamond studs. You might prefer smaller studs if you are looking for everyday diamond earrings. For everyday studs, a good rule of thumb is to keep the ctw between 0.25 and 1. If you are looking for a pair that you will wear on special occasions, then you might want to choose diamonds with a greater weight.

These are only guidelines. You can always go beyond them if it suits you better. You might choose larger diamonds for everyday studs if you are a glamorous person. You might choose smaller diamonds if you prefer delicate, understated accessories for special occasions.

Quality is important - It impacts visual presence

The 4Cs of diamonds are the carat weight and can provide a good indication of the size of a diamond. The larger a diamond will be, the heavier it is. Carat weight is not the only factor that will affect how big your diamond studs look. The visual size of a diamond can be affected by its cut, color, and clarity. A whiter, brighter diamond will appear larger to the eye.

The grade of your diamond's cut has a huge impact on the size of your diamond. People perceive shiny or reflective objects as larger. A well-cut diamond will look brighter and larger. A poorly cut diamond will look smaller and less brilliant than it really is. We recommend that you only select diamonds with an Excellent or Very Good cut grade. Diamonds that are cut to the Good grade or below can look less bright, making diamond jewelry appear smaller and less beautiful.
