Stud earrings

#1:

.32 RB TCW
4.41 x 4.38 x2.71
61.7 Depth, 55 table, 34.5 Crown angle, 40.8 pavillion angle

#2

.34 RB TCW
4.53 x 4.51 x 2.8
61.9 depth, 55 table, 34.5 crown angle, 40.6 pavillion angle

I am concerned about the different size (.32 vs. .43), what do you think?
thank you.

I think the difference (4.39 vs. 4.52 diameter) will definitely be noticeable at this size. (is it .34 or .43, you've put both)

Thanks for pointing that out.
It is supposed to be a .32 and .34 (not .43)

Going by the diameter, table, crown, and depth, etc. they would probably match up pretty well. I would check the GIA certs to be sure.

Ok, just checking. Not that it really matters though, if you've posted the diameters correctly. In this small of a stone, where slight diameter differences can really show, this would just be too much. And in looking further, make sure you check those, not just ct. weight, as 2 of the same weight can vary greatly. You want to keep them pretty close.

Dumb quesiton: Can someone tell me what those 3 numbers mean? I guess one of them is the diameter, what are the others and how do they interact with each other?

The first two numbers are the width a.k.a. diameter (at the smallest and largest points) and the last is the total height. Divide the last number by the average of the first two to get the depth percentage.

They''ll probably look ok, but I think you could do better in matching size. Have you seen them in person? My studs are just a little bigger and their numbers are pretty close:

4.64-4.70x2.72
4.63-4.68x2.76
