Pick the Perfect Precious Metal

The first step in choosing a set of earrings is to pick the materials used to create it. If you are purchasing the earrings to maximize the value of your fine jewelry collection, you may want to look at metals like platinum or gold, which will be more likely to retain and increase in price over time. However, many people choose a set of earrings for specific occasions or style preferences, in which cases it might be best to focus on the personality of the piece or choose a metal that best goes with the season or current fashion trends instead.  

Choose the Right Gemstone

Again, there is no right or wrong gemstone choice. Whether you want a flawless diamond, Tahitian pearls or a stunning ruby, the perfect earring will vary depending on the owner’s preferences and needs. Always keep in mind that when purchasing fine jewelry with gemstones, that you inspect the stones for flaws to ensure you are getting a worthwhile investment. Factors like clarity, number of carats and rarity of the variety of gem should all be weighed against the cost of the piece to guarantee you are getting the best return on your investment. Always buy fine jewelry from a reputable and knowledgeable jeweler, to avoid fraud. 

Decide on a Style

Stud – Stud earrings are small earrings that sit on the lobe. They are the most basic form of earring and often contain a large, single gemstone. They can also be made of a single pearl or a precious metal that is formed into an attractive shape, such as a heart or Celtic knot. 

Drop – Drop earrings are long and elegant, reaching anywhere from an inch below the earlobe to grazing the shoulder. They generally feature multiple gemstones or beautifully intricate designs. 

Chandelier – Chandelier earrings are a form of drop earrings, but are multi-stranded and usually complex in their design. They get their name from the crystal chandeliers that often grace ballrooms and sophisticated homes across the world. It’s for this reason that chandelier earrings are commonly worn during formal or special occasions. 

Hoops – hoop earrings also come in an array of sizes and forms. Some are set with a line of diamonds or gemstones. Many are made from a single strand of silver, gold or platinum in various thicknesses. While still more showcase styles that showcase several woven strands with gemstones as accents. Hoops tend to be considered a more casual earring, the perfect set of earrings for the office or a dinner party with friends.
