Hi all! I''m so happy to have finally finished my diamond leverback earring project! I had originally wanted studs, but realized that I almost always wear leverbacks. That switch to leverbacks made it difficult to find the diamonds and leverback settings stock online, so I went ahead and bought the diamonds on their own from Blue Nile (thread here) while I figured out the settings. I sent the .55 back and kept the two .56''s (so 1.12ctw and diameters of 5.30mm and 5.32mm).

I ended up going back to my engagement ring jeweler (Laura Pearce LTD), and asked them to set the diamonds in a 3 prong/martini style drop/dangle leverback in white gold. They exceeded my expectations...I love their minimal and invisible design! The settings were a little more expensive than stock settings at other jewelers I visited (how I agonized over that additional cost!) but now am so thankful to have spent the extra to get exactly what was in my mind''s eye.

Let me know if you have questions! Here are the pics

And the rest are from hanging on my birdfeeder! I was wearing navy, and the sky is so freaking blue today!

Does anyone think we could convince someone like Whiteflash to add these to their listings. I LOVE that the martini baskets are handmade for the stones, just little jump rings with the three prongs. Less is more!!
