Hi, can anyone help me to find some beautiful diamond earrings for my mum''s 60th birthday? I have seen the perfect pair, but I feel they are over priced for what they are. It is a very small (4pt) diamond in the centre (bezel setting) with a surround of small diamonds in another bezel all set in white gold. They are only about .18ct total weight so they really are quite light on, but they are asking $750 (apparently best price - reduced from $825, even though I just spent $2750 on an engagement ring remodel there) AUD. I have searched on a couple of US sites for diamond earrings but they all seem to have larger, much more expensive diamonds. I don''t particularly want solitaires as we could only afford small diamonds. My mother has very simple taste and fairly short hair so she only wants something quite dainty, but she would love diamond earrings as she''s never had a pair. She is not married and therefore noone else is going to buy them for her. The thing for me is that I am a stay at home mum, so I can''t really justify spending a lot of money as her birthday celebration will already be costing a decent amount. I do also have a price of $800 for .30tcw solitaires which might be better value however the look might be a bit smaller than the double bezel setting I''ve seen.

So, if you can point me in any direction it would be very much appreciated. Everything I can find around the $500 - $600 mark is from a mall type jeweller and I feel the quality will be lacking ...

Thanks a tonne.

These are great suggestions, and whiteflash ACA stones are definitely very sparkly!! You can't go wrong with any of these, but I think the flower clusters and the bezels are my favs of the bunch.
