Soooo I just picked up my new studs from IDJ and I couldn't be happier!!!!! As some of you know I was originally planning to go with WF but after a trip to see Yekutiel at IDJ (I live in Manhattan) I was converted. He found me a pair of STUNNING sparklers right on budget which he set in the MOST delicate 4-prong WG settings. The process was also very quick: I called him last Sunday (04/10) just before my birthday and the studs were ready exactly a week later (birthday present to myself! a girl's gotta treat herself well sometimes). In a nutshell I'm thrilled with IDJ and will definitely be back on 47th St. when I am ready to start my next project. :dance: Many thanks to those who offered their advice in the process (and of course to PS which set me on this road to begin with).

The studs are 1.4 ctw: J VS1, 1.4 HCA score with beautiful hearts and arrows. I previously had .82 ctw Tiffany studs which I sold to my sister (I gave her a crazy deal). These feel MUCH bigger and I love them (I'd even say the sparkle is superior), although I made sure I can upgrade once the dreaded DSS sets in. :lol:

...and here they are:

*I have no idea why the pictures are appearing sideways...

Wow! Those are awesome!

I've always found the IDJ had the best prices of all the PS vendors. I bought a pair of 1/2 ctw for DD (VS, I color, from their ebay stock) for less than Costco! She and I think they're awesome and she has worn them every. single. day. since her birthday last fall.

Your studs look sooooo big on your ears! :shock:

Gorgeous and sparkly!

I'm not sure how yours are J's they are so white and bright!

Your new studs are abolutely beautiful Fulvia, and I have yet to figure that out with our photos either. Sometimes they just appear sideways and it bugs me too.

Every time I see a pair in your size I think "I have to start my search for bigger stones". I love mine and I have two pair of diamond jackets to wear with them but I have always wanted bigger stones. Wear them in good health and with a big ole' smile.

I've had beautiful custom jewelry made by four or five different Pricescope vendors but since then, the good folks at I.D. have become my "go to" vendor. I think it's a combination of being able to see what I want (by visiting in person) and also definitely - the price. Yekutiel has always been very reasonable with me price-wise. He'll also always does whatever I ask for. They're a great family and really nice people. I've bought or done projects for a dozen pieces with them already. They're making me two more now.

Thanks to everyone for all the love! Attached are two outdoor pictures (ear pic taken after a run, so excuse my gross hair).

My engagement ring is currently 'on ice' until my very obliging BF has saved up what we need to get me exactly what I want (a 2+ c. k-m OEC in an octagon bezel like Dreamer's) so I needed something to tide me over for the next 6-8 (?) months. This is my first purchase since becoming a PSer, so I am thrilled people approve! Many thanks again for all your help.
