My Brian Gavin .9 ctw K/SI1 in the handmade bezels in 18k white gold. I LOVE them! I was worried about the K color being too warm, but they face up really white. I've received so many compliments already!

Kat, those are so pretty! I thought you might like to see something I have that would go so well with those studs that I also got from BGD. They're either J's or K's (I forget which), and .8something ctw.

Oh wow Andelain, those are so pretty! Do you find you wear them a lot? I've actually been thinking about contacting Pearl Paradise and getting some pearl drops made. But diamonds are even better! :love: I'm also thinking about getting the famous IDJ 3pter jackets for my studs. Can you imagine? Jackets and drops? Or both at the same time? droool!

I wear them some, not all the time. Right now I'm on a kick of just wearing my largest pair of studs by themselves.

Oh, and the 'both' idea sounds great! :appl: :appl:

Angietime- you have a lucky mom!

Andelain- I love the new bling you've got! SO pretty! And LOVE the drops!

Kat- I think bezeled studs are my favorites!

I've jumped on the stud bandwagon in the last few months. I had 2 little OEC's that had been sitting around and finally got them set in some old fashioned yellow gold buttercup studs.

Before: .41ctw of OEC

After: Sweet petite-

Earshot:

And with a pair of clover shaped studs also new (to me).

This thread was so helpful when I started looking for studs. Kat and Andelain, I love your bezels and drops!

I was able to get these second hand a while back, courtesy of D&T. Thank you!!! .50ctw, 5.18mm including the bezel, G-H, VS & SI, 18k, and I loooove them.

Sorry I don't have a better photo. I am unclear of the specs on these, as they were last year's Christmas gift from my SO. :) They have a larger center stone and then 8 smaller stones circulating them, giving them almost the appearance of jackets.

From your picture, it looks like the halo gives your earrings the appearance of HUGE! Beautiful!

Here are my princess(es) :P
0.5ct E SI and 0.52ct E SI.

Originally, i had the concern about the "claws" of the basket that the princess was sitting in, but once i had them in my ear, i soon forgot about them :-)

I'd like to thank the PS community for the valuable information and support shared through this site. I first found my way here when I was trying to learn about the diamonds in my engagement ring and soon I got totally hooked. So after a year of self-education, I decided to celebrate my 30th birthday by giving myself a gift that would have lasting value :love: This thread was a wonderful aid for comparing styles etc. So, to thank the previous posters I wish to show my gift - perhaps my pics will in turn help someone else <3

To mark my 30th birthday, I gave myself these .30 studs:

studs1_www.jpg
studs1_www.jpg (76.18 KiB) Viewed 2103 times


The other one is GIA .30 I SI2 XXX and the other AGS .30 I SI2 000. They came from Bluenile and I chose the babies myself from the inventory. I was certain I wanted the cut and symmetry to be as good as possible and I also used the GIA AGS proportion table pdf as a guide. In my experience AGS graded diamonds are relatively rare in BN and I did not initially look for one, but this one was there when I finally decided it was time to bite the bullet and place the order. I was curious, just wanted to see if there would be any difference. Well, of course I can't tell any nor can I say which one is which without using a loupe and looking for the small crystal inclusion in the AGS one. Both perform just wonderfully. I also think I got the size right in proportion to my earlobes. Although my SO commented "Well they could be bigger.." - I took that as a promise!! :naughty: (Please excuse the wrinkly blouse, I took this picture for another purpose.. )

The only problem is that soon its my 31st bday and I kinda think it would be a good excuse for another sparkling gift! ;))

Nice pics! Studs are so classic. I actually turned mine into side stones for a ring. Now I sort of with I had another pair because you can do a lot with them and they're a good basic.
Someday.
