So I''ve been having an itch for dangling earrings for several months now (I need help, I am seriously a diamond addict!
). Been waiting for David from DBL to source a pair of intense yellow pears for me. In the meantime, that itch needs to be seriously scratched
, and I''ve been trying on several pairs of drop earrings at local B&M stores (I know I know, I should have gone online, but it is soooo hard to judge how they will look on you unless you can try them on in person,and I swear most of the ones I tried on look horrible on me, except only for these ones). So today, I dragged my poor DH to this local B&M store that has been very highlly recommended by a GF to get him to buy these earrings for me. You should have seen the look on his face when they first told him the price
, poor thing! Somehow, in the end, he ended up buying them for me and even said they look "gorgeous on me".
.

So here they are:

Ugh!! This is so frustrating
... i will keep trying....apparently my files are too large....

Anyway, here is a description: there are micro-pave diamond hoops at the top, with detachable drops (always useful if or rather when I want to alternate with different drops, he he
). These drops are several micro-pave / eternity-style oval-shaped loops. There are 2 RB 0.60 tcwt diamonds inside these loops. The diamonds are apparently E-F, VVS-VS quality, I did a very thorough examination, on several visits, with my own 10x and 20x loupes and am very happy with them. Sorry I am not very good at describing them. They are very blingy and are going to look soooo great with my evening dresses

It sure is frustrating!!! Can''t wait to see them!!


Did you try to resize them in your photo-editing program? 200-400 pixels is a good size. Can admin help??

I hope you are not giving up on posting your pictures.


I, for one, am waiting patiently (well, maybe not so patiently!)
So keep on trying or email them to admin and have them post for you.

Whatever you do, don't keep us hangin' !
You've gotta find a way to post some pictures!!


ETA: Try renaming them. Sometimes that helps.

First of all, PROFUSE APOLOGIES for having kept you all waiting, particularly to Irina for not having responded to yr kind offer to post the pics for me. It's been really crazy...I've been working on this really stressful assignment and just didn't have time to breathe.

Anyway, I've just posted the pics to Irina. Hopefully, we'll have them soon. In one of the pics, I've placed the earrings directly below my stud earrings of over 2carat tcwt, just to give you an idea of how magnificient these earrings are (at least IMHO, I think they are beautiful, he he.
).

Thank you, Ellen. I do very much enjoy my new bling. It''s funny, i am constantly looking at myself in the mirror when I am working out in the gym (yes, I am shameless, he he
) and even when i''m supposed to be working, I find myself staring at my hand, LOL...very distracting!!
.

I wonder if anyone else does this too?

SanDiegoLady, thank you. I got them from a local B&M store. A GF highly recommended them. She''s bought her entire diamond collection from them (and believe me, she has plenty), so I thought I''d try them out. I was not disappointed, he he!!
.

Skippy, thank you. (Btw, good luck with yr CPA exams! They''re a pain in the b..... but so worth it).

Kohdy, thank you. Yes, I am. David has emailed me a couple of pairs but they were a little too small. I''ve asked him to searh again. Hopefully, he''ll come through soon.
