I'm looking for 2 diamonds to have put in yellow gold stud earrings.
.75-.90 total weight with fairly evenly matched stones. These don't have to be certified stones.
Color no less than I-J depending on how conservative the grading is.
Clarity no less than SI2 again I don't want a generous evaluation of what others might call I1 stones.
I'm basically looking for something that's going to look nice in a set of studs. I know diamonds in earrings don't have to be perfect since nobody will be looking at them that closely but I also don't want the I1-I3 stones that you so often find in studs from some places like what you would find at a mall store.
If you just want to tell me a price range of what I'm looking at then that will help or if you want to recommend a good merchant then that will be great also. I'm just starting to look around.email [email protected] or post reply to boardTHanks!

Hi,Where are you in SC? I can recommend Steve Livingston at Dems Jewelers in Columbia. www.demsjewelers.com . Take a trip there and then you can see what you like. He can try to find matched pairs that meet your request.Don't forget, diamond cut is the most important factor in terms of beauty whether the diamonds are for a ring, pendant or earrings. Happy shopping

My husband traveled 3 hours from the coast to buy from Steve L and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thank you Garry.
My husband is actually a giant with a very slow heart rate.
Also a pilot and major aviation fanatic. We cheat and fly to Columbia, so the trip is really only 1-1 1/2 hours total travel time.
