Three down, one left to go. Adam really is the best! 3.43 ctw, M VS1/VS2, ~7.7x7.5 mm diameter. They sparkle beautifully and I am mercifully color insensitive, so they look perfectly white to me (all of my OECs are lower color, and I love the subtle warmth). I upgraded from 7.1 mm studs, and the size difference really was noticeable! I told DH that I think I am done. :roll2:

WOW!!!! How gorgeous and perfect are these earrings?! Fantastic cut on them and they look really white. I have been thinking about finding a match for my rhr oec diamond (my avatar) which is 7.5x7.7mm and making earrings, it's fun to see what that exact size will look like!

Here are mine!

I have to tell you all, I got these because seeing your pictures made me crave studs so badly! :kiss2: That was almost 5 years ago, back when I was just a lurker.

5 years makes them eligible for a size upgrade from my jeweler, yay! Does anyone here have a deal like this? How has it worked for you?

Specs: these are .38 ctw, in a martini setting, and this is what they look like with their jackets on. I chose to have a slight gap to accomodate the prongs so they wouldn't become too scratched.

They're Ideal Cuts from Lazare Kaplan. I do think they cost way more than any other regular .19 diamond, BUT they do face up a lot larger. 5mm with their setting.

Those are so pretty! Honestly, I would not trade those in. I'd keep them as they are or maybe later use them for side stones for a ring, or something. You'll drastically overpay at a regular jeweler for branded round diamonds. I'd recommend looking a the popular superideal cut vendors here when you are ready to buy new studs (Whiteflash and High Performance Diamonds), because they have much better upgrade policies and better pricing than most brick and mortar jewelry stores.

I am in love with these, alone and on your ears they are perfect. Enjoy! PS: They show so white, I would have never assumed an "M".

My CBI studs come tomorrow!! E VS1 0.45 each (.90 ctw). I have tiny ears so this is plenty of coverage for me. I’ll post war shots once I have them

Perfect specs. I've oogled those stones for a while.

cheers--Sharon

Here are my J’s. They are .61 each H&A’s. VS1 and VVS1.

Thanks for liking them. I haven’t wore them since I had a “shrinkage” issue and couldn’t budget for 1 carats. So, I went w 1 carat mossy’s instead. But, seeing them now, I am going to get them back out of my safe. They also are not as heavy on my ears.

Me E-ring is a G. The bezel bracelet is an E.

It’s so hard to take a good pic of these on my ears! So frustrating. Okay. Here are my studs. I’ve posted before but keep trying to get a better photo. Posted next to my ring for perspective. The ring is 6.33 carat center and the earrings are 5ctw.

MrsKBP, those earrings are wonderful! If I might inquire, what type of backs do you use? Do they need a more substantial back because of the size?

Large earring backs. I haven’t had any issues with the backs. The earrings are 2.5 carats each. Not huge but not tiny. Just perfect. The size fits well with my ring.

After a minor mixup with the setting, I finally have my CBI diamond studs from HPD! They are 0.45ct each (0.9ctw) and they are beautiful in their rose gold, 4 prong basket setting.i have relatively small ears so I don’t see me going any bigger than these in the future, but who knows... ‍♀
Photos do not do them justice but here they are...
