Men’s earrings are a popular purchase and you don’t get much better than diamond earrings for men. As there are plenty of fabulous designs around we thought we’d highlight some of the best that we’ve seen.

For a man who’s got his ear(s) pierced, diamond earrings have got to be one of the perfect gift ideas. 

Singles or Pairs?

Many diamond earrings for men come as a single earring – although there are lots of options for men’s earrings sold in pairs. If you particularly want a pair of men’s earrings, do check the description carefully to see if that’s what you’ll be buying.

If you’re struggling to find something you like, even from our fabulous list below, and you want a pair of earrings for men instead of a single try looking in the ladies earrings section. There are many styles to chose from there that aren’t too frilly or fussy. 

Diamond Earrings for Men

Whether it be a stud, a dangle or a hoop, jewelry designers recognise that men value their style too and often want to wear the real thing when it comes to gemstones and not just a cubic zirconia (which, of course, look great and have their place and are a fabulous starting point). 

But if you want to push the boat out, feel a little more affluent, don’t worry there are now plenty of men’s earrings that have been set with real diamonds. 

Lab-Grown Diamonds

And don’t forget the new kid on the block, lab-grown diamonds – chemically identical, only having the advantage of also being flawless and colourless (which is the most desirable achievement in natural diamonds and incredibly rare – and expensive!). Lab-grown diamonds are often a fraction of the price of mined diamonds. 

The Best Diamond Earrings for Men

Here’s what we think are currently the best diamond earrings for men. Some we’ve displayed in white gold but they can be purchased in yellow gold or even silver.
