    @JPie I agree with this. I would do them as a short earring- I think it is period appropriate!

    I like the short version, but if you did the one accent diamond, I think that works too. It doesn't turn them into a "long" earring and is balanced. I like both versions of that, but it is up to you- do you want the small diamond at the top?

    I don't care for the two diamond in the center personally.

    @KKJohnson thank you!

    @elizat we're on the same page about keeping them period appropriate! The seller is going to have her bench weigh in as well, but thanks to this thread I've decided it will either be with only one accent diamond or none at all.

    Update: I heard back from the seller last week and this is what her bench did:

    Luckily the seller was completely behind doing this conversion right and let her bench know that the diamond accent needed to be rose cut, collet set in silver, and right above the cluster.

    Today I got these first photos from her bench:
    948C4065-3EFD-486D-BB44-3F65B64AF904.jpeg FE292FA2-71F3-4DEC-9F91-A4CFD105A596.jpeg 5082C54A-9B0A-457C-A73E-97B9890CD4C3.jpeg

    Sure, the accent is bezeled and not collet set, but close enough frankly. Given the first pass, I think that’d push this bench beyond what he can do. I asked for it to be oxidized a little more to match the clusters.

    More pics to come once I get them from the seller!

    I'm glad they fixed them. Not exactly right, but still really pretty! Hopefully you will be happy with them in person.

    Thanks, me too! I think once they oxidize the little diamonds more, they'll blend in more with the rest of the earrings. I'm counting on those giant foiled rosies in the centers to grab all the attention. :razz:

    I don’t know why I didn’t get the alerts to this! I almost had a heart attack when I saw the first one! I really like them after her bench fixed them! Are you happy with them now?

    Who knew a collet setting could be such a challenge? :whistle::doh:

    Thanks! I think the re-do looks fine. Unless I know for sure that a jeweler can knock a collet setting out of the park, I suspect I'd do well to leave it as is.

    I’m excited for you! I know you wanted the collet setting but I really like the little bezel. I can’t wait to see an ear shot! :appl:

    Thank you! It's definitely a huge improvement over that spikey prong job from his first try!

    It’s amazing that so few know how to make them. It took two tries and three weeks of stress for mine. I’m so glad yours didn’t make you crazy!
