Here are my .75ctw princess cut diamond studs in an open four-prong basket setting.  They are F-G color, VS1 and measure appx. 4mm each.

They are currently in yellow gold, which I was not wearing when I received them, so they have been collecting dust in a jewelry box for several years.  They were a gift from an ex-boyfriend, so I was pretty much just thrilled to be receiving diamonds at all!  They are from Sexty''s Jewelers in Boise, Idaho.

Do you think I could have them rhodium plated???  Image

And now that I''ve mastered my ring picture taking, I have been slammed back to earth with my extremely crappy earring picture taking skills.  Please forgive the bad photos! Image

It''s fun to see some other shapes, Harleigh and Po!

Harleigh, I would definitely have them rhodium plated!!! Earrings won''t have the wear and tear a ring does, so I''ll bet the rhodium would hold up well on the part that the stone sits in.  It may wear off on the post, but you can''t even see that. But I''d definitely do it.
When in doubt....don't.

You''re probably right, diamondseeker!  When I take my ring back in next week I''ll take the earrings and see what my jeweler says about it.  I was thinking white gold might help them look a bit larger, too!  Hopefully it won''t cost too much...I need to focus on wedding costs first!  Image

Rhodium plating will work really well on earrings.  Should cost around $40, at most, from what I''ve read.

I am not sure if this is the ideal forum for a request such as this, but here it goes:

I''m looking to get my long time girlfriend a pair of diamond earrings for Christmas, but unfortunately only came to this conclusion roughly a week ago. I''ve been trying to educate myself as fast as I can, but it turns out I will need to fly out of the country on business mid next week, and, well, that kind of puts me into a nice little time crunch. I''m hoping that posting on the forum might help me to find what I''m looking for and save me the mistake of getting something that isn''t right for me because of my need to move quickly. 

CTW of between .70 and 1.00
Price between $1000 and $1600

Is this even doable? I''ve been shopping around on Blue Nile, WF, etc. but am just not sure exctly what to look for in a set of good earrning stones as far as which C''s are most important and which you can let slip, if table matters, etc.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You might want to start your own thread over in Rocky Talky, as people will be happy to help you.  This thread is for showing the finished product, so it may not be as helpful.

And yes, it is doable...probably not 1ctw but definitely .7-.8+.

I should add mine to this thread too, now that it''s topped and reminded me.  It was most helpful to have all these in one place!

If you won''t need to worry about upgrading, these would be a good choice:

http://www.whiteflash.com/Fine-jewelry/Diamond_Studs/Three-Prong--Martini---READY-SET-TO-GO_950.htm
.70 ctw are $1135; .80 ctw are $1425.

If you do want the option to upgrade down the line, then one of these two pairs will do the trick:

http://www.whiteflash.com/diamonds/Compare_Diamonds.aspx?idnos=540852,540850
    approximately $1390 or so without settings (ps price)

http://www.whiteflash.com/diamonds/Compare_Diamonds.aspx?idnos=540853,540854
    $1554 without settings (ps price).

And this is what happens when you''re inexperienced and try to buy some diamond studs.

These are 1.02 tcw, supposedly I, SI1s, but are really poorly cut, and face up at just 4.5 mm.  And, they don''t even come close to matching!  One has potential, one just looks awful under macro, but they have a decent amount of sparkle, and for what I spent on them, they don''t perform too terribly. 

I need some WF ACAs in a martini setting pronto!
