Thank you all who watched this crazy journey. I am very very excited with my studs. They far exceeded my expectations and were within my exact budget. I'm a lucky girl .

WOW! Did you have to special order/ask for them? Their website doesn't seem to carry anything warmer than J with any regularity...

I didn't buy the stones from Brian Gavin. I just sent them the stones to have the custom setting made for them.

This is sorta interesting. Left is .72 carat F color SI1, excellent cut (not graded). Right is 1.13 carat H color SI1, triple X (GIA). The larger pair was double the cost of the smaller pair. Yikes!

Thank you for this. I'm looking at my first pair at 1.4ctw which I will have for a very long time. I have to be creative if I want an upgrade in size from that ... 1.4ctw is as far as my price comfort zone at the moment :)

Eeeks my ears look terrible but my earrings make them look so much better! A little over 1ctw in the first piercing while the princess cut is around .62 and a small biggie in between 9E77CB10-DA51-4F36-B912-98E83D156059.jpeg

Typo - I meant huggie in between haha

Wow pear shape those are stunners. I don't think I have ever seen pear shape studs

Thank you. I’m a big fan of styles that are atypical. While I love my round Aca studs there is something special and different about those pear studs. Not something you see every day. And that’s whAt I like.

My studs have arrived and I'm very pleasantly surprised, I love them on my huge ears. Which is great because I will have them for a very long time. The cost of an upgrade where I will notice a difference in size is making my eyes water :) My daily wear is complete for now, studs are the same size as my bezel sliding pendant.

They're 1.48ctw, M coloured 0.75ct and 0.73 ct, GIA XXX, HCA Excellent (.8 & 1.7), AGS 0 proportions, SI2 and VS2 (I can't tell which one is which) set in James Allen yellow gold martinis. The sparkle of these stones doesn't look out of place from my CBI 3 stone ER through my untrained eyes and even though I would love to upgrade to some super ideal stones later (much) on the track, these are making me smile at the moment.

Wowza, apologies everyone for the huge pics! Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to make them attach smaller? Sorry everyone, they're so "in your face".
