    Great size. They're beautiful on your ears, Enjoy wearing them. I wear studs almost daily!

    Perfect size for your ear lobes. And beautiful.
    Sadly I have the “big meaty” variety and would need 3 carat each ear to achieve decent coverage.

    PERFECTLY sized for your ears!!! And they look really beautiful. :appl:

    ETA: Are they a 4 prong basket setting? Martini settings look the same to me in photos. Thanks

    Btw, @Starfacet - Where did you get these?! I am thinking about a five-stone AVR/AVC for an anniversary band this year and I haven’t seen them in smaller carat weights (matched, especially!).

    Really hard, and I look ridiculous doing it, to boot!

    Thank you for the compliments! Us, they are in a generic 4-prong basket... I was too excited to get them to fuss with a new setting! The prongs are fine when seem from the ear, but I do love the 6- and 8- prong settings some ladies are getting to accentuate the round shape.

    Thank you! They felt a little big for about 5 seconds, lol. I love this size!

    From @Rhino at August Vintage. I lucked out with the matching pair. He has a nice pair of .7+ ct. I color AVCs that I was considering using for an AVC 3-stone along with an I or J color center. I ended up with a 1.7 J AV round instead, but I still would love to have an August Vintage 3 or 5 stone one day! A 5 stone would be nothing short of amazing!!!

    Help, PS friends! How much larger do you think I can get away with for everyday wear? These are .50 each. I’ve been browsing .60-.70ish. Would it make that much of a difference? One of my piercings is lower than the other. I don’t feel as though others notice the asymmetry, but that may change with larger studs?

    Maybe I should just have these reset into a classic six-prong setting? Just thinking out loud here. I wear studs everyday. I sleep in them. I have worn .10 ctw, .40ctw, .60ctw, and now 1.01ctw. My entire adult life! :lol: I just love them. This project has been on my mind since the last upgrade. This next one will probably be my last. I know everyone says that, but I have small lobes! :P2

    @msop04 @Austina @SimoneDi and all others—

    These were my upgrades last year... thinking of going up just a bit more ! (See above post). Should I do it? Or just reset this pair? :wavey:

    I mean, I think they look great... but I'll almost always stand behind the decision to upgrade! ;-)
