    After deciding that I wanted to upgrade my 80 point studs, I spent many hours searching through the pricescope site to try and decide what to get. I ended up getting a 1.6 ctw J VS2 ideal cut pair from blue nile. I decided on the GIA certs so that I could upgrade at a later date if I wanted. I also decided to prioritize the cut over the color. The J is plenty white for me, and I figured there was a good chance that a GIA J was probably just as white as a non-certed G or H. I was torn between those and a preset pair from ID Jewelry. I really wanted 2 ctw, but I totally love the earrings that I ended up with. I got platinum bezel settings.

    These earrings are much livelier (and bigger!) than my previous pair. :love:

    Reeniebeanie, for comparison's sake, could I ask for a shot of your previous 80 pt studs?

    Here they are! Please excuse the dust. The smaller earring was cleaned before being put in the box, the larger one was just taken out of my ear.

    Thanks! I picked the bezel for two reasons: 1) I thought they might make the earrings look closer to the 2 ctw I wanted, and 2) I wanted the earrings to stand up a little more. I probably could have gotten that result with some basket settings. I like the martini setting, but it seemed like the earrings were less visible from the front with the lower setting.

    When I started shopping, I thought I would get square diamonds. I went to a store and tried on the squares and thought the round earrings looked better on me. I have a round face and I'd read that squares look better with round faces. Not true in my case!
