I just wanted to post this and share it with anyone who might be interested. The Costco shared prong hoops are currently marked down from 1999 to 1699. I've read/heard good things about Costco jewelry/diamonds in general and these hoops in particular. Sadly, it's not the right time for me to buy them but I hope someone will take advantage! The tcw is 1.45 and they are 5/8ths of an inch and have 5 stones in each hoop. The price is good until 11/30, but supplies are limited (they were out of these hoops a couple months ago)

I could kiss you right now, wildcat03!!!

I've been wanting hoops like these, and was hoping they would go on sale at Costci! $1500 is about what I paid a few years ago for 1.5ctw for my mom, but no PS vendor is selling them that low anymore! Costco was my best chance at getting them at a lower pricepoint. I can take advantage of buying online, and returning in store, and it will be nice to compare them to my mom's from IDJ.

Can't wait to see ear pics of these earrings. I recently purchased 2 carat total weight huggies from local jeweler and love them. I am sure the Costco pair will be beautiful. Always admire their jewelry when I go to shop. And I know they have a great reputation for their stones. I was not aware that they sold huggie style earrings.

I had a pair of these years ago and ended up returning them to Costco. Not because they weren't beautiful, but because I used the money to get my hubby a gift instead. Ever since then, I've stalked then online thinking one day I would get them again. Just FYI, I priced out a 2 ct pair from IDJ (PS quality) and the price was around $1000 more than the 1.45 ct Costco pair is so this is a good buy. I love Costco!

Oh I wish they had the diamond hoops I am looking for because these are great prices and a great return policy just in case.

We need pics in this thread!

I'm eagerly waiting for the pics too!

I had no idea Costco sold earring jackets...

http://www.costco.com/.product.11492204.html?cm_sp=RichRelevance-_-categorypageHorizontalTop-_-PersonalizedClickCPInCategory&cm_vc=categorypageHorizontalTop%7CPersonalizedClickCPInCategory

They have a pretty wide range of sizes available and the price seems decent. If only they sold these on the Canadian Costco site ;(

ETA - they sell jackets on the Canadian site! :appl:

What do you think of the diamonds?

I am running out the door, so can't type too much. The diamonds are clean and very sparkly to me. I will openly admit that I do not own any ACA/CBI/BGD diamonds. I have a pair of GIA G color studs and next to those, the diamonds seem just as white. I had them delivered to my local UPS as I was at work all day. When I picked them up I opened them in the car and they threw off colors left and right despite the fact that it was fairly dark in the car. I will loupe them tomorrow and report. Here is my quick ear shot (it is semi-dark in the room - lights are recessed and on dimmers).

Hard to tell now because it's night time and my high hats in the kitchen are LEDs so they definitely sparkled lolol.
