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?
If you don’t mind, will you post a pic of the setting? I’ve been curious about this as well.

I know it's not the basket setting but you can see a pic of the 3 prong martini setting earlier in this thread. The posts were crooked on my 0.75ctw pair but the 0.5ctw pair were fine. I don't think they were crooked because they got bent though, I think they were just not attached properly in the first place. Overall, in my opinion they weren't flimsy.

I wonder if the martinis would be a better option :)

The stones themselves actually look quite substantial for being 0.5 tcw, I was expecting them to be smaller!
The stones are fine. I just wanted a more substantial setting.

Did you pull open the little drawer in the bottom front of the box? Thats where the paperwork and cloth are.

OMGOMGOMG MY STUDS CAME!!!!

I am FLOORED. They're BEAUTIFUL....and just the preset ones! They’re flashing all over the place and wayyyyy more than my cheapie ones I got at a b&m store.

I got the 0.50 ct for my first of three piercings. The 0.25 are for the second. When I opened the 0.50 I thought wow those look so large since I haven't ever had larger studs than 0.25 ct before. And I thought with my small lobes they would be great with the 0.25 and cover quite a bit.

Is it possible to have DSS right after purchasing???? These are the best studs I've ever owned and I actually caved and got a second set of 0.25 for my third piercing but they haven't come yet. Now I'm rethinking that. Like should I send them back and get 0.75 or even 1 ct??? Or keep and gift to one of my daughters for Christmas?

Fwiw the settings and posts are fine on mine. I dont feel like they're overly thin.

On to a few pics... 20200824_141819.jpg
So in this one I put the other 0.25 in the last piercing to see what it will look like when I get the other pair. 20200824_142108.jpg
Same here but it's a little fuzzy.

With my baby 0.10 ct bezels that are not good quality

Better one with both 0.25 in

I'll get more even better pics after work.

Thank you for posting the .25ctw!!! I am still undecided in getting these but I do like having a side by side between the .25 and .50. :)

And personally, if you were going to go bigger, I say go for 1.0 ctw!

After going back and forth between the 0.5 and 0.75 I opted for the larger ones. You can see my comparison shots earlier in this thread. There's also a different thread comparing 0.5 to 1.0 ctw studs. They aren't a ton bigger, but for me it felt like they were adult earrings while I felt like I was wearing kids earrings with the smaller ones. You have the room for them and nice symmetrical piercings so you can handle the bigger ones!

I’m so excited for you. I say go big! You might as well order the 1ctw now before sale end and you can decide from there.

Here's a better picture of the better spaced side. My right side is spaced better. My left got screwed up lol. I have the 0.25 in both second and third piercings to see how they'll look. I actually think I like the spacing and size of them as is....

I'll search out the post and the other thread later too. Thank you!

Wanted to see what it would look like with the 0.50 ctw in the second and 0.25 ctw in the third. Yep I think i have the ear space to pull it off. Still undecided on 0.75 or 1.0 though.

I think if you want the size difference to be proportionally similar to the other two, you might want to do the 1ctw. The difference between the 0.75 and 0.5 is a little more subtle.

Thanks....i saw your posts and I was thinking the same thing. I'll have to look at finances and if I can't swing it now I'll start saving and wait for another sale.
