Honestly the more I compare I'm leaning towards the larger ones too! It is so white and sparkly and you're right, just has more presence. It just feels "extra" which is a little wonderful considering everything right now. Opens up a can of worms though as it's almost the same size as my pendant and I would prefer a little more contrast. Maybe the next project!
If you decide to keep the .75s and would be willing to sell on the .5’s rather than return them I would definitely be interested in buying as I missed out on the sale! No bother if you have other plans!

Thanks for the offer! I actually kept the 0.5ctw pair and sent the other back! The piercing in my other ear (not the one I posted pics of) is even closer to the bottom of my lobe, and I just didn't like how close the bigger stone came to the edge of my ear. It just didn't look symmetrical and it bugged me. Wish I could go back in time to when I was 7 and ask that mall jewelry store girl to center the piercing! I think the smaller size is actually plenty of bling for my jeans and t-shirt life (especially these days). The small set feels like a great value!

Also, the bigger pair actually had crooked posts and I knew they would bug me and I didn't want to deal with the quoted 4-6 week repair time frame.

The 0.5ctw pairs I ordered as gifts arrived today. Overall I’m really happy with them — excellent value! My estimated shipping was August 10 but they shipped early. I wish there had been a bit better communication from JA about delivery. I wasn’t expecting them this early so when I got an alert on July 28 that they’d be delivered the following day I called to let them know I wouldn’t be available until August 3 (today). They said that wouldn’t be a problem but I still got slips showing that FedEx had attempted delivery. I hate to waste people’s time, so I wish I’d had a bit more notice that they were coming to make arrangements or that JA would have communicated with FedEx to delay delivery. In any case, lovely earrings from JA and great service from FedEx for handling the repeated delivery attempts.

Thanks for the reply. Probably looking at 2 CT. Mile stone birthday for my wife. Any recommendations where to look?
It depends on a combination of your budget, the level of ease you’re looking for as a shopper, and the quality that’s important to you. I think the Lightbox route is a great option on a limited budget. Would you be open to starting a new thread? I think lots of people here could help!
