Diamond Earrings for Valentines or Your Special Anniversary

RB 2.24 tcw-3If you are looking for an exceptional gift for Valentine’s Day or a Special Anniversary, consider diamond earrings.  We find that our clients who have round diamond stud earrings wear them every day as they look great in the office, at a party, shopping and running errands, or when wearing jeans at home.


RB 2.11 tcw 3-prong-2The secret to beautiful diamond earrings is to get diamonds with the best cut possible to maximize their brilliance, fire and sparkle.  We seek round GIA graded diamonds with Excellent GIA cut grade and Excellent HCA (Holloway Cut Advisor) ratings to provide dazzling diamonds seldom every seen in a jewelry store.


To keep the focus on the diamond we recommend three-prong “Martini (cocktail) style” mountings and for security we recommend Versa posts and Guardian™ clutch backs.  Most lost earrings are due to faulty friction or screw backs so the clutch style of backs is superior.

Ready for a change for your engagement ring?

We have many clients who purchased their engagement rings from us years ago who come back to us wanting an upgrade for their ring.  Often getting a larger diamond is just not economical in terms of making a noticeable change.  Changing the mounting style can provide a new look for those ready for a change.

RA 1.13 w .60 tcw Traps white 1.33 ratio - 1smFor example, in 2005 one of our clients purchased the three-stone diamond engagement ring pictured below.  The ring had a beautiful 1.13 carat radiant cut center diamond and brilliant-cut trapezoid side diamonds.


See more “before” pictures and description.

This year they came back to looking for suggestions on how to update the look of the ring.  We suggested a new mounting with Blaze Cut diamonds on the shank and a modified basket style that accommodates a flush fitting wedding band.  They added a matching Blaze Cut diamond band for a great new look using their original radiant and trapezoid diamonds.
