Per request by DiamondSeeker2006 and Missy a quick thread on my favorite studs.
This summer I was pretty upset when I lost a stud while training to scuba dive. My own fault, but still. Grrr. Anyway I thought about replacing one of the earrings because they were purchased as a reward for taking a big step career wise. In the end I decided to reset the remaining stone into a five stone diamond and ruby ring and purchase a new pair of studs. I know one of our fellow Pricescopers in real life, Virgina, and she had purchased from James Allen in the past and had a good experience.
After much thought and internal debate I decided I was okay with going for a lower color and clarity in studs than I would be for an engagement ring. To be honest I do not see the tint once my earrings are on. Both stones scored well on the HCA and after confirming that the folks at JA thought they would make a good match I placed my order.

One of the things I quite like about my new studs from JA vs my old ones from BGD is the setting. One of the three wires making up the basket is tilted upward to make sure that studs of this size don’t drop down in your ear.

And this is me you can see that though they sound like fairly large studs when you look at the mm size they actually look quite normal on my ears.

I always thought that size sounded crazy huge until I saw m2b's, and while they were large, they were stunning! Yours are, too! :love: :appl: Fabulous!!!

But whoa...your E color studs were larger than these!!!

Diamondseeker20006 thank you, I wear them daily. :angel: You are correct the E's are larger but they are a little heavier and sometimes catch on my bluetooth headphones....life is about practicality...except on those days it isn't. :naughty:

I do wear the larger studs on occasion, but running around in scrubs or a Gryffindor cardigan they are just a bit much. I think part of it may be the setting. For daily wear I prefer the martini setting, though I have seen both look very nice on others.
