Hi there! I'm looking to purchase some pretty small diamond studs on a budget. My mom wants some new studs but doesn't want to put a lot of money in to them. I've been quoted $695 for .50 ctw pricescope quality diamonds with a four prong setting at ID Jewelry. I've purchase from ID Jewelry before and I trust them to pick out great cut stones, even though they're not certed. I have a 7 stone with from them and it's amazing. So I'm happy to go with them. However, before I do...I just want to ask if there is anywhere else I should consider? My mom has studs from Blue Nile now and honestly, we're not impressed with them so I'd rather not go with them again. I was hoping to get a little bigger than .50 but I know that she's not wanting to spend over $1,000. Lower, if possible. BGD has pre-set bezel studs in .75 ctw for $850 but they're in white gold. She wants yellow gold and doesn't like the bezel setting. I don't know if they offer any other pre-set studs? I haven't contacted them about it. Anyway....before I pull the trigger, I just wanted to make sure that I'm looking at the best place. I know that they will be small but I want them cut as well as possible. Thank you!
