Kimberly Zerkel | January 13, 2023

When building your diamond jewelry collection, one of the most essential designs you can purchase are earrings. And by selecting styles that highlight a 1 carat VRAI created diamond, you’re ensuring that you have a timeless staple that also stands out.

Many earring styles feature one or multiple diamonds in smaller sizes. Solitaire Studs, for example, start at ¼ carat sizes while more dramatic Mixed Drop Earrings highlight an array of both ¼ and ½ carat diamond shapes. So often a 1 carat diamond earring will garner attention for its larger size.

What Are 1 Carat Diamond Earrings?

1 carat diamond earrings are generally stud earrings featuring a single 1 carat VRAI created diamond (this means that the pair of earrings would weigh 2 carats). Variations occur, of course. 1 carat diamond drop earrings for example might feature a 1 carat diamond that dangles from a smaller diamond. The majority of these styles however highlight one solitaire diamond.

How Do You Purchase 1 Carat Diamond Earrings?

1 carat diamond earrings may be purchased entirely online, in person, or through a virtual appointment. For Solitaire Diamond Stud Earrings featuring VRAI created diamonds, for example, you may book an appointment in-store or online with our diamond experts for personalized guidance. Or you may select your favorite style in 1 carat, then customize by choosing your preferred diamond shape and metal color.

What Are 1 Carat Diamond Earrings’ Price?

1 carat diamond earrings featuring a VRAI created diamond can range between $1000-$2000 USD depending on the style and on if you select a single earring or pair.

1 carat earrings featuring mined diamonds can be two to five times more expensive. This has nothing to do with quality or the diamonds being labeled as “natural,” since lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds, as well. Because VRAI controls its diamond inventory and each diamond passes through fewer hands from creation to final product, our 1 carat diamond earrings feature no markups.

1 Carat Diamond Stud Earrings By Style

The top 3 styles of 1 carat diamond earrings are Solitaire studs, Bezel Solitaire Studs, and Halo studs. But which of these looks is right for you?

1 Carat Solitaire Diamond Earrings

For those with the most timeless taste, a pair of 1 carat solitaire diamond earrings is a must. The beauty of Solitaire Studs is in their simplicity — a minimal 14k gold setting secures your 1 carat diamond in place, allowing its distinctive shape and brilliance to shine. Studs featuring Round Brilliant, Oval, or Emerald cut diamonds are often considered staples. But select your favorite shape for a look that’s true to you.

1 Carat Bezel Diamond Earrings

Vintage-inspired meets modern when it comes to 1 carat Solitaire Bezel Studs! The clean lines created by each 14k gold bezel setting — available in white, yellow, or rose gold — is a combination of Art Deco, mid-century modern, and contemporary style. Highlight the perfect geometry of your chosen diamond shape in your favorite metal color for studs that are uniquely yours. Princess cut earrings are a great choice for 1 carat bezel styles.

1 Carat Halo Diamond Earrings

Named for the halo of pavé set VRAI created diamonds that gently circle around your chosen diamond shape, 1 carat Halo diamond earrings are for those who know that, when it comes to diamonds, more is more. The added halo not only enhances each stud’s overall brilliance, but actually makes them appear larger than their carat weight. The Art-Deco inspired design is also perfect as an heirloom in the making.

Are There Other 1 Carat Diamond Earring Styles?

While most 1 carat diamond earrings are studs that feature a solitaire 1 carat diamond, there are certain other styles that spotlights a 1 carat diamond. Duo Pear Drop Earrings, for example, highlight a 1 carat Pear shaped VRAI created diamond that dangles gently from a Round Brilliant stud. Solitaire Drop Ear Jackets are also available in 1 carat and are the perfect (and dramatic!) addition to any Solitaire Stud.
