And a pair of diamond studs looks good with anything. Their versatility means they can be worn equally well with a smart business suit for a high powered presentation, a casual outfit for a home bake sale, a little black dress for evening or a bikini at the beach! So if you are looking to buy someone special a pair of diamond earrings, diamond studs must be your first choice!

But what if the lady in question already owns some diamond stud earrings? What other choices do you have?

Colored Diamonds

One of the first alternatives is to buy another pair of diamond studs, but set with a colored diamond instead. Fancy diamonds are increasingly popular and many different hues and colors can be found at relatively affordable prices. For instance, black diamond studs look sensational as they add elegance and sophistication to an outfit yet retain the classic diamond sparkle. Blue, green and yellow diamond studs are also wonderful choices.

Dangle Drop Earrings

Another style of diamond earring is the dangle or drop style. Here the diamonds can be as discrete or flashy as you like. For example a simple teardrop earring in which a diamond briolette hangs delicately from a gold or platinum post is a beautiful piece which any woman would be thrilled to receive.

Another version of the teardrop design sees a small round diamond suspended from a fine trace of precious metal. This is especially stunning because the longer length means that such an earring can be worn easily by women with longer hair.

Diamond Chandeliers

This is probably the absolute ultimate in diamond bling and is best worn confidently with the hair up for maximum impact. This design, inspired by celebrities attending Red Carpet ceremonies is the height of ostentatious glamor. Large numbers of small, very clean diamonds are arranged along swirls or fingers of precious metal which are articulated to allow maximum movement. The resultant fiery flash of diamond chandelier earrings surely makes any woman feel like a true celebrity!

But remember, whatever you choose, if you want her to love them, make sure you consider her personal tastes when selecting a pair of diamond earrings!
