Studs are sold by carat weight. Carat weight is the weight of a diamond. Typically, the larger the carat weight, the larger the stud. Studs are also sold in pairs by carat total weight meaning both studs combined equals that carat total weight. For example, if you have a pair of 1 carat total weight studs, each stud is a ½ carat making the pair a full 1 carat.  

Now, what does that look like? We took our top selling classic Anita Diamond Studs to show you what they look like in the ear as well as next to a dime to help you get an idea of size.  

Our classic Anita collection begins at 1/4 carat total weight:
