Hi all! I already have a pair of 2.5 tcw studs that I used to wear when I was working but now that I'm chasing kids around and wearing lululemon daily, I want a smaller pair. My jeweler went out of business so I am trying to find a pair on line. I checked Whiteflash but Bluenile seems to have better prices, but I noticed that pricescopers seem to prefer Whiteflash. I was thinking of spending around 3-3.5k with a platinum martini setting. Can you please let me know what you think of these, I am open to other suggestions as well and have a flexible budget. Thanks for your expert opinions!

I can't help with the diamond selection, but I can offer this: If you're looking for earrings for every day wear, I highly recommend getting 6- or 8-prong martini settings. My everyday earrings (~.48 total) are set in WF's 8-prong martinis. I find them far more comfortable for every day wear than 3-prong martinis.

All of my studs have come from WF, so I will always recommend them because I think it is very valuable to be able to upgrade later if desired.

If you are sure that is the size you want, I think the Whiteflash J pair is a perfect match!

You can bump to I color and ACA's for just a little more:

I always get platinum 4 prong baskets, so I can't speak to the comfort of the martinis.

I would definitely go with the Whiteflash ACAs. ACAs are just gorgeous stones!

VR, may I ask why you find the 3-prong martinis uncomfortable? That's what I was going to get from BGD. Thanks!
