Hi all,

I'm a novice to diamonds and would appreciate any input.. I'm planning to buy a pair of loose diamonds online to make diamond stud earrings..unfortunately there are no actual pics of it online. After much hours of analyzing, I came up with these two (total ~$9,800) and just wanted to ask if they are a good match in appearance and a good purchase in general... thanks in advance

diamond #1 (gia)
0.91 ct, G, VS1, 3EX
table 57%
depth 62%
crown 35
pavilion 40.8
cutlet none

diamond #2 (gia)
0.91 ct, G, VS1, 3EX
table 57%
depth 61%
crown 33
pavilion 40.8
cutlet none
measurements 6.22 x 6.25 x 3.80 mm

I'd want a closer crown angle match.

Me, too. At least 34 on the crown angle for the second stone. The first one has good numbers.

It's fine for an earring. I'd just want the match to be better. But then again, I'm picky with matches. And you won't wear them next to each other. If there is a good return policy (that includes return shipping) get them and see them in person for yourself and see what you think.
