Re: Whiteflash studs, 1.6 ctw, keep or go bigger now?

I also think that these look large on your dainty earlobes, I'd say they look like 1ct each. However, performance wise, didn't one stone have an HCA of more than 2? But hey what do I know?! The folks at WF must have thought that they were good enough to be given the ES designation. I'd personally se...

Re: Options for 2.656ct H Si2 BGD stone

that the clarity on my stone is closer to an Si1 , as the inclusions are on the edge of the stone and it's very hard to see them even with a loupe. This 2.625ct is $33k vs mine at $30k, so about $10k discount for this branded/ superideal cut diamond, which I thought was fair. [ Indeed, your stone l...

Save it till this time next year and I'll buy it off you!

Hi Phoenix, I have been thinking about a large step cut on and off for a while now as well and have been drooling at a number of Antique ones, it is on my one day list if the right thing comes along.....

Re: Options for 2.656ct H Si2 BGD stone

So many CHOICES! I would love love love a chubby emerald cut. With bullets. But I'd want a huge one too. Gorgeous. I am partial to a split shank halo - that's how I reset Gladys. Classic style. But I think with Holly, you would be disappointed with a halo. Even a pink one. A three stone is a great ...

Oh Phoenix I have missed you my fellow big bling sister! Well first I should say that I'm a HUGE fan of instant gratification, but that usually gets me in trouble down the road. It typically also equals regrets as well. Would you wear a large EC as an ering or a RHR? Would you wear a 3 stone or the...

Eeek, excuse the typos in the post above! I also want to add: eyebrows are a must - they add definition to your face and "finish" the look. I personally don't like the "embroidered" eyebrows that seem so popular in Asia these days, preferring instead to draw them everyday. I use ...

You've gotten some great advice. I just wanted to add that you'll really need to try different things on your skin to see how YOU like them.

Re: Looking for 1.1 match. What do you think of this one?

I really think you should wait. Wait until either you've saved enough money to buy at match for your 1.1ct stone; a G SI1-Si2 would suffice, or alternatively buy another matching pair (smaller and/ or lower in colour, but I wouldn't buy I1 for various reasons other posters have already mentioned on ...
