Hello everyone,
I am a new member and this is my first post. I absolutely love diamonds. I am especially attracted to the Leo, although I shop different stores to find the best certs on them. They are priced the same, although one may be VS and the other SI2. I know the visual is not that much different, but of course I like to get the best I can for the price. I have the three stone 1.48ctw Leo engagement ring, the five stone .70ctw anniversary band and the 1/3 ctw Leo studs. I am wanting to purchase another pair of Leo studs, as I have two piercings in my earlobe and want another pair. Please help me with my decison of what size to get for the price. I have $600 of certificates to use towards my purchase at JBR jewelers. Should I get another 1/3ctw pair @ $599 and wear the same size in each piercing, or should I buy the 1/2 ctw @ $1299???? On either purchase I would be able to use my certificates for half the purchase price. Do you guys think the difference in the size is worth the difference in the price? I have looked at both together, but can''t make up my mind!!! Please give me your opinion. Thank you in advance!!!

I would buy the larger pair. My daughter wears two pair of studs about those sizes and it looks great! I prefer the larger one in the main hole with the little one in the second hole. I''m just a single hole girl myself!

I''m with diamondseeker, buy the larger pair and put those in your first hole. Then put your existing studs in your second hole

Hi and welcome!

YES, I agree that you should go for the 1/2ctw. I Think the larger will look nicer with the smaller than having 2 the same size. I think that will be a significant size difference. Each diamond would be 1/4 ct as opposed to 1/6 ct. Thats almost twice the size.

And your wedding rings sound beautiful. I would love to see photos of them! I love 3 stone rings and wedding diamond bands.

Thank you for the advice! I''m new to all this, but will try to make pic of my wedding set soon. I love this site, lots of friendly people who have very interesting ideas and seem to be as crazy over diamonds as I am. (My husband thinks I''m nuts!)

Psst, here is a secret . I don''t discuss diamonds or jewelry in my offline life because I don''t want to appear materialistic. Which I am NOT. I just enjoy diamonds. Nothing wrong with that, just that people can take it the wrong way. And here people "get" it!
