So I'm thinking of upgrading my studs. My first ones were 60/60 J/SI2s that were very bright. I then upgraded to Tolk ideals H/SI2s that seem to get dirty and lose sparkle quicker that first studs. I'm tired of constantly cleaning the studs. I remember there was a thread where Gary recommended 60/60 stones for earrings because they tend to retain their performance better as gunk has a lesser effect on shallower stones plus there's no head obstruction for earrings. Should I switch to shallow stones again? Thoughts? Suggestions?
