I am planning to get the following for my wife for our 10th anniversary:

1) 3-stone Diamond Ring/band
2) 3-Stone Diamond Necklace/pendant
3) Diamond Stud earrings.

My budget is about $1500.00. But may stretch to 2000.00.

The gold is 18K, diamonds: Round, Good/Very good cut, Color: H/I/J, Clarity: SI1-2

I am unable to find diamond sets (i.e all three together) online. Not even sure if, I could make it in 2000.00. Couldn''t really find all of these in one store either - one that met my budget. If not, I may just do the ring & studs and buy the necklace later.

Any advice will be much appreciated.

I agree with Julie. I think you should pick one of the three and go with better quality (cut) diamonds.

For example Whiteflash has Expert Selection Ready Set Go 3-prong martini stud earrings that are I color SI clarity .80 total carat weight for $1,425.00 or you could call them and have them select a couple of diamonds for you.

unless you want some *really* small/poor quality diamonds in the 3stone pieces, you are better off looking at studs with that budget. focus on quality, not quantity.

I would go with the Earrings, the reason being is you can get high quality and earrings can only be so big? at least as far as this guy is concerned

I agree you would probably be better off just focusing on one of the 3 things. You might also want to check out Pearlmans Whisper Collection which are very affordable already put together peices that are all eligable for trade-up and come with 1 year insurance. They have 3 stone rings but if you're going to just do one thing I love these bezel earrings that start at $448 for G VS2..
