    these came earlier this week, they are darling! Today I'm wearing them paired with my 18k yellow gold Gabriella Kiss snake hoops (large).

    Awesome! Are pastes faceted like antique cushion diamonds? How does their performance compare to diamonds? Your snake hoops are really cute!

    I mean, they are pretty awesome for 4ct paste earrings but you can see the comparison between my real 4ct plus antique cushion diamond on that account.

    @minimountains Are you still happy with these earrings? I’m thinking of getting a similar pair.

    @kgizo I have a pair and since then, I think prices have gone up a bit. I like them and like that they are handcrafted by a person, but they are a little expensive still for what they are.

    I thought they were a little expensive when I bought them, but I wanted them! I went with stones that I think are too big. I think smaller stones, like 6 or 6.5 mm each are better. I think mine are 8 mm.

    I really wanted a pair with real diamonds that were about 6.5mmish each and that was just not in the budget at the time. The stones behave differently than diamonds, but are still pretty.

    I never wear mine, but should. I sill add that Shannon is lovely to work with, cares about her product and couldn't be a nicer lady.

    Thanks, @elizat. I am intrigued by the antique emerald cuts, but it is a lot of money for “fun” jewelry as you pointed out.
