My local jeweler found 2 sets of loose diamond for my earing stud.
1st set : 0.71 cw, H,VS1, VG cut, VG polish and Ex sym measurement is 5.84 s 5.80 x 3.49 depth: 60 and table: 57
0.73 cw ,H,VS1, VG cut, VG polish and Ex sym measurement is 5.88 s 5.85 x 3.55 depth: 60.5 and table: 56
total price is $4850

2nd set: 0.64 cw, H,VS1, VG cut, VG polish and VG sym measurement is 5.50 s 5.46 x 3.44 depth: 62.8 and table: 59
0.60 cw ,H,VS2, Ex cut, VG polish and Ex sym measurement is 5.48 s 5.45 x 3.28 depth: 60.1 and table: 61
total price is $3400

which pair is a better choice? For the earing, should I RESTRICT with 3EX?

You would need to give us a little more information in order to give feedback. Can you get the crown angle and pavillion angle information for each stone? GIA Triple Ex will only take you so far. I’d suggest you read this great article and you’ll be able to see how cut proportions are extremely important in how a diamond looks.

I like the numbers on the larger earrings a bit better. I know many buyers here relax their preferred parameters for earrings so I don’t think you have to limit yourself to 3Ex as long as you’re comfortable with the trade offs.
