Soo, I went through diamonseeker2006's wonderful "Show me your diamond studs" thread (gorgeous studs, ladies on there, BTW) and got it in my head that I was going to aim for something in the .60 ctw. Then I took a little trip to Birks and tried on some .32 martini set studs (for $1600 - GAH!
So I'm looking for something in the .40s ctw., martini set in platinum. Can someone explain the cut/performance difference and setting quality difference between the H&A martini studs at GOG and the ACAs in martini settings from WF and why so many more PSrs go for the ACA studs over the GOG H&As? Will I even get to choose individual stones in that small a size? I'm thinking G-H/VS quality is sufficient, but do want the best possible cut to make them dazzling.
If anyone can direct me to a good thread on this topic, please do. My searches haven't been very fruitful.
