There is something so classy about 1 carat diamond stud earrings. They can be worn anywhere and with anything.

Whether you have 200 pairs of earrings or one, you should have a good pair of diamond ones.
If you have wanted to purchase 1 Carat Diamond Stud Earrings, but don't have much diamond knowledge, there is help available. You just have to remember the Four Cs. These are cut, clarity, color and carat weight. As long as you familiarize yourself with these traits, you will be fine. You can even make a cheat-sheet or a checklist to take with you when shopping.
The Size of 1 Carat Diamond Stud Earrings
Even though you are reading "one carat," you may not be able to visualize that. It may sound small. It may sound huge. I'd say it's about the size of a pencil eraser. However, one carat refers to the total weight. Each earring will be half a carat, thus, a little smaller than a pencil eraser. Earrings, however, don't need to be as big as rings. Just a small diamond will stand out beautifully.
1 carat diamond stud earrings must have good clarity. Clarity of a diamond refers to inner and outer flaws. Flawless or Internally Flawless is virtually perfect and very expensive. However, you don't need a perfect diamond. There are many categories of clarity where the flaws are not visible to the naked eye. For quick shopping, you should not go below SI (slightly included). Anything after that and you can start to see the flaws without a microscope.
