After coming to Pricescope 11 years ago and 50k posts later, Andrey generously surprised me with a $1k gift to be used with any PS sponsor for being the first person to reach 50k posts! I thought about it for a couple of months, and I decided to do one final, but small upgrade to my Whiteflash diamond stud earrings! My upgrade 2 years ago was intended to be my last, but at that time, they didn't have a matched pair of ACAs in exactly the size and specs I wanted, but I went ahead anyway and upgraded from .80 cts each to 1.15 cts each. After getting the PS gift, I thought that maybe I should see if my ideal pair of ACAs was available, and it was! I was hoping to get close to 1.3 cts each (7mm) and H VS2. (I have room on my ears to wear 2+ cts each, but in my world even 1 ct each is huge!) They had a great pair around 1.28 each (2.55 ctw), which was perfect for me!

The Pricescope gift gave me the (guilt-free) opportunity to upgrade my settings to Whiteflash custom crown settings in platinum! I chose them over the 6 prong martinis because they have a wider base which helps them to not tilt, yet they look almost just like the 6 prong martinis looking at the earrings on the ear. I asked them to set the stones low. Even though prongs look big in magnified photos, they are small and delicate in person!

My earrings came yesterday and I could not be more pleased! They are perfect! I want to thank Sheerah for her patience through my many upgrades and the entire Whiteflash team who make buyng there such a pleasure! They have a super upgrade policy, and I should be the poster child for upgrade policies! :lol:

Thanks so much to Andrey and Pricescope for the generous gift! I clearly love this forum and especially the many wonderful PS people I have had the pleasure of meeting over the years! :appl:

First, I will show you pictures taken by Whiteflash. My stones have almost the same diameters and lgfs. Then there's an image of the setting CADs. Last, a WF glamour shot! More pics to follow....

They are gorgeous DS! I love that the settings have a flat base so they sit flat with no droop. The diamonds are scrumptious and I am so happy that you got something that you love with your gift. You have helped many here; the gift was well deserved! Thanks so much for sharing these with us - enjoy them for years to come!!

Gorgeous, DS!!!

They look right at home on your ears - the size is lovely! I pulled up your old thread and y'know, I can really see the difference, even in photos :love: the diamonds are scrumptious and white metal is just the perfect push-up bra for white diamonds on the ears!!

I love this setting! The flat "base" keeps the stone nice and perky without having to jam the back on and the open gallery makes cleaning a breeze - and we all know I'm a sucker for 6/8 prongs :love:

Congratulations, and thank you for so many years and so many contributions to this community! PS wouldn't be the same without you ::)

They look beautiful Diamondseeker. The also look like the perfect size. Diamond earrings always look so pretty with dark hair. They really pop.

Aww, thank you all for the sweet comments! Such a great community of people with a common hobby! These studs are one of my main staple pieces that I wear often, so I really feel relieved to finally have my final pair!

@yssie, I am pretty sure you were the originator of the crown settings, and I am sorry I neglected to mention that! I love the 6 prongs and am happy I made the change this time! I love 8, too but these are a good size for 6, I think. These are babies compared to yours and m2b's studs, but I do love them in every size!

@Calliecake, I hope when I decide to stop being a brunette that my studs still show up! Platinum and diamonds look good with silver hair, too, right? :lol:

So perfect, DS! I love the size on you! Although you *could* fit 2ct stones, I think they'd look 'flashy' and I know you're not a flashy sort of woman. These look just right...while still being super gorgeous! Congratulations on your gift, and many thanks for your years of contributions. :wavey:
