Here''s the thread with the story: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/conundrum-i-got-my-studs-and-im-kind-of-underwhelmed.110951/

I was underwhelmed at first. And now.... now.... well.... y''all are making me second guess myself. I saved for these suckers for a long time, and they WOULD get worn, daily. In my second piercing, rather than in the first as intended.

But - they were expensive. And my intial reaction was underwhelmed. But - DH thinks they look awesome in the second hole, and I have no idea what I would spend the money on instead, LOL!

So - vote all you bling loving enablers!

For some scale. DH wanted in on the modeling action too.


ETA: No, he will NOT be allowed to wear them if they stay.

Um. I save up for bigger ones I guess. Or get scattered diamond hoops? I dunno, I''m at a loss, LOL.

.25cttw studs are never going to look huge...but your pair is lovely and they certainly do the job! I think you should follow your gut, whatever it is telling you to do! If it were me, I''d keep them!

( I like them in the second hole )

But, if you don't want to wear them there, send them back!

Also, the look GINORMOUS on your DH's itty bitty lobes.

Gecko how much are we talking about here, ballpark? I think they look great, but not 100''s and 100''s great.

I have .80 ctw in platinum and while I love them, if I had to do it over again I would have spent the money on something else. I guess I''m not that much of an earring person and they get dirty so darn fast.

Dani, I say if you dont "love" them, then dont keep them!!! Yes, they are pretty and they look lovely on you, but dont settle if you are not 100% about it!!! You can return them and get something else you adore....Good luck with your decision!!!! love, Dani

Well, I think they look REALLY good in your second hole, but, I don''t want to make you want them. Yanno? If you''ve got any kind of niggling feeling, I''d send them back, they''re too expensive not to love.

I wasn''t much help, was I??

TGal - These are the WF RSG in .25tcw. They were $450. I''ve been saving since November.

A lot of my indecision is based on the fact that I spent all day trying to think of something I''d rather spend the money on. And I was coming up blank, LOL.

I really like them.

Personally they are a bargain at 450. Prices tend to go up so this size may not be that cheap again.

So I vote keepsies!

Afterthought: Did you consider a jacket?

You don''t spend it. Save it. Put it away. And keep saving until you get what you want. Doesn''t mean instant gratification, but hey...that''s good for you anyway.

I like them, but you have to feel happy with them.

Sad to say, but I voted to send ''em back. If you don''t love ''em a fair bit today you are likely not going to love ''em any more tomorrow...

Been there, done that, Dee!

I think they are super cute, especially in the second piercing but if they are uncomfortable to put on then you''ll never wear them and that''s the kiss of death.

I think I just solved that problem - I swapped out the backs and they''re not nearly as hard to get on now. Interesting.

If they are now comfortable to put on, I''m changing my vote to keep ''em. There''s just something about the size and the style and your haircut (at least what I can see of it) that seems just right to me.

I would keep them, they look so cute even in your first hole! I love wearing tiny studs, so maybe I''m biased.

BUT, if you are not all cant-stop-staring-at-them-in-the-mirror-and-jumping-off-the-walls-happy, then I''d say send ''em away and save a few more months for a bigger version.

I agree with your hubby that they look great in the second hole, they are a great size for that!


I voted to keep them, but wanted to add that if you are not in love with them you should send them back and perhaps keep adding to your money to get something later... all depends on how much you would wear them and how much joy you will get out of them

They are adorable, but since you are underwhelmed and they were a big expense I vote send them back.

Ditto! If you need to make a poll on PS to decide, I think that means you don''t need them! Plus they hurt your ears which is another good reason to send them back.
