Pretty settings, they're what I would pick too. Whiteflash has ACA melee that they use in their jewellery, I'm sure they could quote you a price for that carat weight if you asked. Someone on here bought baby bezels around 10 points each, I can't find the thread but they were very happy with them.

Call Whiteflash. I assume they will put ACA stones in them? I think cut really matters on small stones
(as well as big) because they are so small you definitly want good light return and lots of sparkle. Color and clarity (to some
extent) can be dropped for earrings IMO. Call WF and find out what kind of stones they put in that size. Try to get ACAs/ES.

Thank you! I just called and they'll email me a quote today :dance:

Great...It may be a tad more than the usual but people that have ACAs just swear by them. I unfortunately dont own one but
have seen them in person and they are really nice! Keep us posted!

I think WF uses hand-selected diamonds in their smaller pre-sets, but they're not necessarily ACA's Be sure to ask if that's important to you. I have a pair of .25ctw Whiteflash earrings, and they're lovely and very sparkly.

That's what I'd buy if I were getting a pair that size. You definitely want good diamonds in a small size so they will show up well! I have ACA studs and they are great!

Do you have pics or a tread anywhere we can see VRBeauty?

Thank you for coming back to update us and share! It's super helpful. Do you think you'll spring for the ACAs or shop around some more (maybe try Brian Gavin- they have their signature melee that should be quite comparable to ACA melee)?

Honestly, at that size, I think you are fine with either one. Any larger, I would definitely go with ACA, but I am not sure you can tell much difference at .12 each. I am sure they use excellent cut stones in the less expensive ones.

I am leaning towards the non-ACA studs. Wish someone had comparison pictures!!
