Q&A: Looking for Diamond Earrings With a £1,250 Total Budget

I want to buy a pair of diamond earrings for my wife. I want a white gold setting, I’m not sure what would be the best grade and colour for diamond earrings. Also she does not like big earrings so I thought about studs but I’m not sure what size diamonds would be best.

Any information I could get would be really helpful.

Just to be sure we are on the same page, are you looking for round cut studs? What total carat size do you desire? Do you have a ballpark budget in mind? Then I’ll gladly send you some recommendations.

Yes, it is the round studs I’m looking at and probably about .6ct – 1ct for the pair.

My budget would be around 1,250 UK pounds.

I think I would like a better clarity of diamond.

I really like the second pair of diamonds. The problem I have is that when I add the diamonds to my cart I don’t get the option to set them in earrings, only rings or pendants.

You can contact BN via live chat or phone, they will be more than happy to help you and set those diamonds into studs. Let me know how it goes.

I called BN and bought those earrings.

Thank you for your help.

It was my pleasure helping you.
