How to Find the Perfect Diamond Earrings for Your Wife on Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner; you may not only be thinking about what to do for your own mom on her special day, but also the best way to show your gratitude to another important woman in your life - your wife. Read on for tips on finding the perfect pair of earrings for her!

How to Find the Perfect Diamond Earrings for Your Wife on Mother's Day

While the kids may very well be able to skate on by with presentations of quaint, homemade cards and macaroni art from school, as the head of the household, the standards for your token of appreciation may in fact be a bit higher. One type of gift that delights almost universally? Diamonds, cold, hard, and timeless, specifically in the form of a pair of diamond earrings, which are very chic right now. If you're located in the city of Virginia Beach seeking a supplier of fine wares and want only the best for your partner in life, look no further than Long Jewelers; our extremely diverse catalog of diamond earrings for sale is unlike any other in the area, so you'll be sure to find the right fit for your wife.

Now, again, the husband's traditional role in a marriage is not generally to be the fashion-forward one of the couple; luckily for you, Long Jewelers is here to guide you through the madness, just in time to surprise her for the holiday. The following are several things to keep in mind when making your selection and ensuring you choose something she's going to love for decades. The first step? Selecting the pair of diamonds from an authorized vendor, or scrutinizing the diamonds already present in a pair of diamond earrings found already made.

There are four important characteristics of a diamond that are the main contributing factors to its brilliance and value - these are cut, color, clarity, and carat, otherwise known as the four C's. It's a handy mnemonic device to keep in mind when setting out on your journey.

The cut of a diamond describes the ratio between the physical measures of its width, depth, and table, more commonly recognized as the flat part on top of most commercially sold diamonds. These attributes and angles intersect and are what allow a diamond to sparkle and shimmer, arguably the most desirable quality to most women in a pair of diamond earrings. There are many ways to cut a diamond, the most common of which are princess cut diamonds, emerald cut diamonds, round and oval cut diamonds, and cushion cut diamonds, among many more. The next time your wife is out at the store, sneak a peek at what she owns; this will give you a better idea of what she likes already.

Diamond color, the next topic of contention, is simply a matter of taste. Diamond color-coding may be a mystery to the layman, but once you get familiar with the terminology, understanding the scale becomes more intuitive. A D grade diamond is the most highly-prized, valued for its almost completely colorless quality; these are the fantasy diamonds seen glimmering dimly in Hollywood movies from the days of old. 

Finding the perfect pair of diamond earrings for Mother's Day

E and F diamonds appear identically pure to the average consumer, with diamonds graded G-J following suit, albeit slightly imperfectly; these are usually set against white gold or platinum to make their tint less noticeable. K-M diamonds, while visibly warm, can usually be bought for nearly half of what comparable diamonds of finer color can be purchased for. In the case of diamond earrings, it is essential to choose two diamonds that are identical in color. If you're buying earrings that have been pre-manufactured, you will not have to worry about this.

Clarity is exactly what it sounds like; valuable diamonds in this category are distinctive in their lack of visible knicks and other physical flaws, which can mar the piece's luster. Your dealer should be frank and honest about any imperfections present in his or her diamonds for sale.

Carat, the final C, is almost certainly the one you're most familiar with; one diamond carat is equal to exactly 200 milligrams, the international, metric standard. While some may argue that the size of your love is equal to the number of carats in each ear, this is a somewhat pedestrian way of going about the matter - bigger is not always better. Some cuts and settings may exaggerate the size of even a very modest diamond, and, aesthetically, it makes no sense to overwhelm an already beautiful composition unnecessarily.

So, you've taken the crash course on the diamonds themselves; what next? Once you're properly educated purely in terms of the stones themselves, it all comes down to a matter of personal style when selecting the diamond earrings of your wife's dreams. Stud earrings are an option that will rarely disappoint - cherished by women of all looks, backgrounds, and cultures, a classic stud look is one that will fit happily into any lifestyle. Diamond drop earrings and chandelier earrings can either be worn in tandem with everyday attire or dressed up for more formal occasions, lending an air of elegance and luxury no matter what style you select. Hoops and huggies offer the same, with varieties that range from playful to dignified and chic.

With over thirty years of experience in the business, Long Jewelers is the most trusted source of diamond earrings of all kinds in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and the Greater Hampton Roads area, with offerings from acclaimed designers such as Kattan, Lazare, Steven Douglas, and many more. With our lifetime guarantee and financing options as low as 0%, your experience with us will be worry-free, enabling you to make a selection that will enchant your wife for years to come. From our home to yours, we at Long Jewelers sincerely wish you and your family a wonderful Mother's Day.
