Art of the Craft – Diamond Earrings
Classic. Beautiful. Artfully made.
Diamond earrings are a definitive part of a woman’s jewelry wardrobe.
Each of the diamonds in this set weigh an impressive 1.25 carats. With diamonds this large, they become the focal point and simple stud posts allow the eye to be drawn to the diamonds and the person wearing them.
Fine jewelry, like fine food, begins with the highest quality ingredients. The ingredients before you include 18kt white gold Protektor back studs, two 1.25 carat round diamonds, and highly skilled craftsmanship.
The craftsmanship and the art thereof is integral yet almost never seen. We start with the ‘anything but basic’ ingredients, the diamonds, and studs waiting to be mounted.
If you read our recent blog post ‘Keeping Your Earring Where They Belong’, you’ll know why we recommend Protektor back studs.
As for the qualities of the diamonds, that is a matter of personal choice. Only you can know what is best for you, but we can help to advise you so that you can have the confidence of a master jeweler backing you.
While setting the diamonds might look simple, don’t be fooled by the seemingly effortless nature of the task. It’s only the skill of our jeweler that makes it appear so. The setting must be exceedingly precise to ensure that a maximum of light enters the stone, if it is not, even the highest quality diamond will seem flat and lifeless.
- First, the diamond is placed and centered in the setting.
- Second, the prongs are tightened.
- Lastly, the prongs are polished down and rounded off to ensure both the security of the diamond, but also that nothing will catch on the setting.
