    For you? For a gift? Do you know what size you want?

    $500 won't go very for at a chain store. Have you considered moissanite instead of diamonds?

    Assuming you a planning to use these in someone's ears, realize you can get away with a much lower quality diamond than you might buy for an engagement ring. Most people aren't willing to stick their nose in your shoulder to look at your earings.

    Also, depending on the color, your might want to select your mounting accordingly. Even diamonds with visible inclusions may be fine for earings.
