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!
Thanks for the reply. Somehow I missed your post while looking on my phone. I was about to buy 2 CT total weight studs on James Allen with 25% coupon, until I looked at Lightbox. Wow! That is still a big difference in price.
Unfortunately Lightbox is out of stock on clear diamonds, but the James Allen earings would not have arrived in time for my wifes birthday anyways.
Are 2 CT total weight the biggest I can get in man made diamonds? My wife doesn't really have an opinion one way or the other on man made versus mined diamonds, but personally even if prices were equal- I would still go the man made route. The fact that man made is significantly cheaper is fantastic

Have you checked out New World Diamonds? They’ve got an even better price on 1 carat tw studs than Lightbox, and a 10% discount on the first order. They’ve also got bigger white diamond studs available, plus a rainbow of colored MM diamonds.

Yeah, the pricing is strange. Lightbox is $800/ct across the board, while JA is more expensive the larger you go. So the JA sale prices is a better deal on smaller stones, LB price is better on larger ones. JA is also 14k vs 10k for LB, if that matters to you.

Thank you I did see that. Does the red box come in the larger white box like their rings?
Yes, my .5ctw studs came in the red box inside of the larger white box (with the paperwork and a cleaning cloth). I had never ordered from JA before, so I was surprised with the presentation for $250 studs.

I haven’t ordered a ring from them so I can’t compare, but I ordered two pairs of earrings and both red boxes came together in a larger white box with paperwork. Hope this is clear! Sorry I don’t have a picture of that.

No worries! I created a new thread to discuss options for you. Some places will have preset earrings larger than 2ctw (New World Diamonds has some options listed) and you could always work with a vendor to find a matching pair of larger stones and have them set, but I think price will start to significantly increase and ease will decrease once you get much larger than the 2ctw mark. Also, 2ctw is plenty large for most women so you’d want to talk with your wife and maybe have her test drive some CZ sizes first if you’re thinking of going really big. Here’s the new thread I started for this:

I’m new to lab grown diamonds (and diamonds in general) and I just purchased the 0.5ct lab diamond studs in martini setting. I’m so excited! This will be my first pair of diamond earrings.

The 25% off code was still working as of yesterday. I wanted to get the earth-grown ones too just to compare but the code didn’t work on them

I love your multiple piercings... it makes me want to open mine up again! Is that a blue diamond stud in the conch piercing? If so, is it from NWD?
Thanks! The conch earring is a blue opal. I'm going to switch it out to a ring soon now that it is healed.

It’s here! This is the 2 ct bracelet it feels delicate on my not so delicate wrist. Excuse the blue bracelet, I was too excited and lazy to take it off. When I cover the blue bracelet to look at the tennis bracelet, I just love it so much! It adds so much sparkle without being overwhelming for my very casual lifestyle. I can’t figure out how to add a video to show the but here’s a couple of perspective shots

Also it looks tight, but it isn’t I just pulled it up and away from the other bracelet for pics It’s plenty roomy for me without being too loose

Ok here’s another not great perspective shot lol. You can see the size in proportion to me, I am not petite. It is thinner looking on me, but with every move it just shines! It’s not the size of the diamond it’s the sparkle I say!! Lol

I love this bracelet. Here are other shots of the 2ct tennis bracelet for those who are contemplating during this sale. I shared this over the SMTB thread but here we go.

Please post pics when they arrive! I ordered the 0.5ctw but I’m considering getting the 0.25ctw for my second and third ear holes as well so I’m curious as to how they’re gonna look like together
Will do! I actually thought about getting a second pair of 0.25 ct for my third holes but wasn't sure how they would look in both second and third hole. Now I may have to get another pair while they're on sale lol.

Eta I really want a pair of 0.75 or 1 ct for my first holes so I can wear the 0.5 in the second and 0.25 in the third. Don't know that I can justify the money on them atm since I've purchased a lot recently. Also considering giving my two adult daughters a pair of 0.25 ct each for Christmas.

Received my 0.50 JA studs today. The stones are nice, but the setting is minimal. Maybe i was expecting too much for earrings that were in that price range. :(2 Unfortunately they will be sent back!

What settings did you get? I actually prefer minimal settings usually so for me that's a good thing.

I like minimal as well, but these are very very light weight. I don't think it would take much to bend the post. I really wanted to Love them......

My package also arrived without any paper work. I saw where others posted they received the paperwork and a jewelry cloth?
