Diamond accents are tiny diamonds that weigh less than one-fourth of a carat. These types of diamonds are commonly used in jewelry pieces to accentuate larger diamonds or other kinds of precious or semi-precious stones.

Jewelry designers generally create necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets with diamond accents to add more value and shine to the pieces. On the other hand, some jewelry designers create jewelry pieces with numerous diamond accents in an effort to provide consumers with more affordable versions of genuine diamond jewelry. These types of jewelry pieces usually incorporate semi-precious stones, such as amethysts or opals, with the diamond accents to create jewelry pieces that appeal to traditional or modern jewelry enthusiasts.
