Sorry for the cheesy title but I’m so excited as my Lightbox 3/4 ct Princess pendants are coming tomorrow!

I’ve been looking for a nice pair of studs for a long time and I thought I wanted round. But then I fell in love with Princess stud from Costco but 2k was too much.

I’m hoping these will sparkle beautifully since they advertise the cut will be very good. :bigsmile:

They’re here!

Here they are next to my current princess stud 1ctw VS I color from Costco. I can tell the cut is a lot prettier since one of my Costco is a big mush. They are a lot whiter too.

I’ll post more detail photo when I have a chance later.

Those are beautiful! I considered the 3 stone 0.75 tcw pendant. Still want it. Just trying to curb spending lol.

Will you help me pick a setting? I’m between these two v prong but leaning toward the simple one. However, I’m afraid the thick setting might obstruct the light. What do you think? 2E7CDB74-2F13-47F5-BFBA-C944126FF3F1.jpeg 2A013895-8834-40BC-83BA-E589FA46BB15.jpeg

I like simple clean lines the best..but the second one looks very thick and chunky. I would pick the first one because the prongs are thinner and lighter...Your princess diamonds are very pretty!

Yes. It was on sale at Bloomingdale's. Unfortunately I already bought the 1ct solitaire necklace, the 1 ct pierced earrings, the blue and pink studs and couldn't buy anything else. Maybe in a few months...

Here they are! I’m so in love. The setting is nice and substantial. The backing is a lot thicker than I expected which is great. They’re nice and balance. I think the local jeweler did a good job. They’re so sparkly, I have been wearing them nonstop.
@pearaffair They are 5x5mm consistently across.
Overall I’m very happy with this $700 for the stones and $400 for setting. I’m looking forward to future sale lol.
