Fashion Math: Are Diamond Studs Really Worth Rent Money?

As they say, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and a sparkling pair of diamond stud earrings are no exception. Who wouldn’t be completely elated to pop open a little velvet jewelry box and find two dazzling studs? Diamonds don’t come cheap, though, and the bigger and better quality they are, the more cash you can expect to shell out for them. The 1.00 ct. t.w. studs shown here are set in white gold and retail for $1,695. Not many earrings are worth more than one month’s rent, but these are. Let us break it down:

fashion math

Diamond studs are the original statement earrings-people always notice them and they instantly up the glam factor. So, all you have to do is wear these studs every day for the next 5 years (that’s 365 times 5 which equals 1,825) and you’ll have paid less than $1 per day for them. Continue wearing them after the five year mark and you’ll knock that price down even further. We guarantee you won’t have a problem keeping these studs in for that long: they will never go out of style and they’ll look great no matter what outfit you have on.

Bonus: These earrings are currently 30% off, which reduces the price to $1,186.50. That means just $0.65 per wear!

Shop more great earrings, plus cheap jewelry if the real thing just isn’t in your budget right now.
