Diamond earrings make a fabulous gift for any occasion.
Whether paired with other diamonds, a strand of pearls, a ruby bracelet or a gold necklace, diamond earrings do not clash with other jewellery. Because diamonds match perfectly with every coloured stone and precious metal they make for a truly versatile addition to every sophisticated lady's collection.
Diamond earrings do not need to be sized and can be worn during the day and for more glamorous evening occasions. They are also highly visible.
Pobjoy offers an eclectic variety of superior styles, settings, shapes and diamond grades. From classical solitaire diamond studs to expressive drop earrings we have something to perfectly suit your requirements.
HUGS & STUDS
Sometimes called the 'little black dress' of diamond jewellery everyone should have them in their essentials collection.They pair well with the classic little black dress, but can also be dressed down by wearing them with jeans or shorts.Whichever shape and size you choose, they are sure to please!
Diamond hoop earrings are generally larger than 'huggies' and allow for space between the ear lobe and the earring itself. Designs that display the diamonds front facing along the rear of each hoop ensure maximum visual impact, rather than those diamonds being partly hidden when worn.
Diamond drop earrings come in all kinds of styles and sizes with an accent upon animation and glamour. They are particularly appealing to ladies with smaller ear lobes and for hairstyles worn over rather than above the ear. This style allows for an added degree of design creativity and flair and make a great statement item.
CERTIFIED DIAMOND GRADES
Our diamond earrings contain the highest quality natural diamonds of at least H colour and Si1 clarity. Diamond set earrings over 0.25 carat weight in total are provided with an HGDL certificate. Larger carat weights are GIA or IGI certified. Bespoke solitaire diamond earrings are GIA certified as per grading specified. We only sell diamonds certified by industry recognised institutions due to the integrity of their grading.
Diamonds of D and E colour on the grading scale are extremely clear and white and are at the top of the colour chart. The clarity grade of VS signifies Very Slight inclusions such that to the naked eye the natural 'birthmarks' of the diamond cannot be seen. Indeed, even under ten times maagnification they are hardly visible to the human eye.
Diamonds of F and G colour are very clear and white as the diamonds we use tennis bracelets are without fluorescence they are full of life. The clarity grade of VS signifies Very Slight inclusions such that to the naked eye the natural 'birthmarks' of the diamond cannot be seen. Indeed, even under ten times maagnification they are hardly visible to the human eye.
Diamonds of G and H colour are also clear and white as the diamonds we use in our tennis bracelets are without fluorescence. The Si1 clarity denotes slightly included. While such inclusions will be slightly more visible than VS graded diamonds under ten times magnification the human eye would find it exteremely difficult to notice such marks until clarity Si2.
TYPES OF DIAMOND
Princess Cut Diamonds
Princess cut diamonds of a high quality such as those used in all Pobjoy diamond jewellery display significant sparkle and light reflection properties. The difference between the princess and round brilliant cut diamond 'performance' tends to becomes more apparent when comparing larger single-set stones, for example solitaire rings.
Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds
Round brilliant cut diamonds tend to reflect slightly more light entering the stone than the princess cut shape. They are also generally more expensive carat for carat although the face up size of a round brilliant cut appears marginally smaller. The difference in price is due to the fact that a rough diamond is essentially square to start with such that less of the diamond is lost in the cutting process.
Baguette & Shaped Diamonds
More unusual shaped designs and hug earrings may alternatively feature baguette shape, oval or pear shape diamonds. Where the earring setting is of a shaped design the diamonds used may appear curved but this effect can be created by using several small stones also referred to as melee set. Heart shape diamonds have also become popular in recent years.
PRECIOUS METAL SETTINGS
9K or 18K Gold
9K gold is 'softer' than 18K gold but visually they are hard to tell aprt from one another. In 9K gold the intrinsic gold used is 37.5% while in 18K gold it is 75%, the remaining constituents made up with other durable alloys such as silver and zinc. White and rose gold employ a finishing effect such that the colour does not continue below the surface of the finishe jewellery. If the jewellery is to be worn on a very regular basis-or up against other jewellery- the softer the gold the more vulnerable it is to abrasions. These can be however be professionally polished out.
950 platinum enjoys enduring popularity primarily due to it's hardness and resiliance. Pobjoy platinum jewellery uses 95% platinum mixed with other alloys which lend the precious metal additional ductality in the design and production process. Platinum does not tarnish and is hypoallergenic thus appealing to those with sensitive skin. It's appearnce is essentially similar to white gold. Where an item of jewellery is expected to be worn regularly and by those with very active lifestyles 950 platinum is particularly appealing.
Like 950 platinum, 950 palladium is extremely hard and robust and is blended with 5% of other alloys to assist in the jewellery production and finishing process. It is also hypoallergenic and slightly lighter than platinum. It's appearance is maginally whiter than other precious metals and extremely easy to maintain, resilient to scratching and pitting. It is also the most expensive of the precious metals based on current market prices..
Why not add some bold radiant colours to your diamond earrings? Our coloured gemstone and diamond earrings contrast the bright white sparkle of the natural diamond with premium grade red rubies, green emeralds and blue sapphires to create uplifting jewellery of distinction.
