I bought these babies in Hong Kong from a diamond broker about 10 yrs ago. They''re both set in 18k yellow gold, not hearts and arrows but the cut is excellent, their color is I, the clarity is VVS1. One is 3.46 carats and the other is 3.41 carats..Total carat weight 7.87 ^_^ not bad huh? I just took them out of my safety deposit becuase one of my daughters just got married. You know how weddings are. I just HAD to take my best bling-blings out hehe. I haven''t seen these in a long time because I hardly wear them. They''re not exactly for everyday wear. I''m getting them reset. One as a pendant and the other as a new engagement ring that I''m having my jeweler custom make for me. I cannot wait to get the final results! These are probably the last time they''ll be seen as earrings so here you go.

I dont know why it didn''t finish my topic but the complete one is....

My daughter nicknamed these "THE PLATES"

It''s because she says they''re big enough to eat off of ^_^ Yeah that one''s got a sense of humour. Probably inherited from yours truly ^_~

Thanks to everybody who replied ^_^. These babies are the pride and joy of my collection. I'm quite proud of them ^_^ hehe even though I know some you guys have bigger rocks than these. I just really adore them.

I bought these way back when I hardly knew anything about diamonds. Only thing I was concerned with was clarity. Since I've learned more about diamonds (mostly from reading posts on this site hehe ^_^ Go RockyT's!) I probably would have gone higher in color and lower in clarity. Still...I'm in love with my "plates"
. No regrets.

They are very beautiful!!! Looking forward to seeing them reset as your new pendant and ring!!! (Especially if that means you'll wear them more...life's too short to have them sit in a safety deposit box all the time!!!)

Aww thanks for the support guyz ^_^. I will definitely put up pictures of them when they're reset already hehe. It's too bad my jeweler is insanely busy because of the holidays. Otherwise he could've done then pretty much in a week or 2. But I will keep you guys posted promise. And I totally agree with Firegoddess..life really is too short to not enjoy 'em while I can. Besides...LOL everytime I wear them out people think they're fakes. Cuz aside from popstars & movie stars nobody wears larger rocks as earrings...leastwise that's what I keep hearing

Wow is all I can say! But I agree with making them into a ring and pendant. They are a little large for everyday wear...and I seem to recall you recently got some beautiful new studs just over a carat each, right? You''ll have the best of everything!!!

MerLine, I think it''s great you''re resetting, kind of a two for one deal!

And I just have to say, from the photos, your skin looks far too young to have a child marrying!

oh merline please say it ain''t so! i absolutely love those studs. they are just the right size for me. i have always yearned for studs that large. i would so wear them nearly everyday. i don''t think that i am going to get any studs that large but i truly desire them.

enjoy what you end up with but in the meantime wear those gorgeous plates as much as you can.

Those are some beautiful diamonds!!! I think making a ring is a great idea! I can''t wait to see it on your finger.

My 10 year old daughter has named H&A diamonds as compass roses, LOL, she say''s I need to get one so that I will always know what direction I am going!! LOL I yearn for a compass rose plate!!

. jayrenay9, aww its really cute what our kids call diamonds eh? We should start a new topic..."Diamond nicknames!" hehe. Kaleigh, thats why I started thinking about getting them reset because I had just bought the new earrings from BN with H&A...and I''m quite happy with them so...now I can wear all of them at once
