I am thinking to get a pair of small diamond studs (0.5 ctw) for now, and get another larger pair later ( ~2.0 ctw).

I wonder If you have a larger pair, do you still wear the small pair?

Shoud I just get one pair only -- somewhere between 0.8-1.5 ctw?

Thanks.

I'd go for a 2 ct pair, and a pair of pearl studs (8 or 9 mm) in lieu of a .5 ctw.

That way, I can always feel like a rich b!tch.

I have a pair of 1.16 ctw that I can wear everywhere, dressy or not.

It''s really a matter of personal preference. There are some who have 2 ctw and over that wear them everyday.

I have four piercings and have four matched studs which are .40 ct each. Just another option which works for me. I also have diamond hoops, which I wear with one set of studs for variety. Doesn't mean I won't go bigger some day

I wear my 1.5 ctw daily. I have a smaller pair- 1ctw and never wear them since I got my larger ones.

My diamond studs are 2.5 carats total and I wear them daily with everything. When I upgraded I gave my old studs (1/3 carat each) to my daughter because I knew that I would never wear them again. I would get only one larger pair if it were me.

Thanks, Ladies.


After I upgraded my ring and made a pendant, I feel I need a pair of studs to match them.
But I also feel guilty myself to spend $$ for a pair of larger studs too soon -- maybe wait for next bonus time.


For now I may just get a small pair that can be upgraded later.
Or I get a small pair of WF ready set go which can be given to my daughter later like what Sundial and diamondseeker2006 did.
My daughter does not have ear pierced yet -- never thought above this option before. Thanks.

The price difference between .5 tcw and 2 tcw is HUGE! I am about to get earrings from Whiteflash, if you get GIA or AGS certed stones from them (such as their A Cut Above line) you can upgrade at any time. This way you could get something now and trade up as your budget permits! This is what I am doing since I may want to go bigger in the future.
