Hiya diamond gurus!
My gorgeous hubby has promised me diamond studs for my 30th b-day. We have a budget of about $5000 US. I''ve been lurking on these forums for a bit trying to decide a number of questions and thought I''d put it to you all.
I have a yellow gold ering and plain band. The ering is set with 60 points in a platinum setting on a yellow gold band. I pretty much only wear yellow gold.
My questions are:
1. I''m thinking 1.2-1.4 ctw RB for the earrings. Should I get them set in yellow gold to go with my other jewelry or is it not as important for the ears?
2. Is that carat TW going to look okay with my ering? I''ve looked at the ''show me'' pics but it''s still hard to tell how it will look on my ears. (I may get an upgrade/eternity in the future!)
3. I''ve got a claw setting on the ering and my RHR-I really like this but I''ve noticed on the ears it can be a bit droopy. I''ve also seen a bezel set (platinum mount surrouded by YG) that I like but might look a bit big with these stones and I don''t think it would go with my engagement ring. Suggestions? Comments?
4. There have been multiple threads suggesting SI clarity is okay for ears-can anyone go into this in a bit more detail?
I know, I know personal choice etc. But I''m hoping people can give me a bit of advice on what they''ve tried and even some pics.....Thanks in advance!!
