Ladies, of course more is always possible, but the question is whether bigger would still look good or just overkill?
I think they look spectacular

I think that depends on you and how comfortable you feel. Your studs look great and balanced on your ear and sizeable so you don’t need to go any bigger. But if you do want to go bigger, you could. I think you could carry it off!

I am so excited to show off my brand new studs. These have been a dream for a long time, but finally a reality.

They are from JannPaul, who as always are so great to work with, and absolutely worth the price and the wait.

Both are 0.4 carat, D-F, VS1-VVS1
One Decagon 10 Hearts and Arrows, one Emerald 2.0

They are incredibly bright - as I am sure we all know they are hard to do justice to with photos.

I found this forum very helpful when I was trying to decide on the size, but my advice is there is no substitute for trying on in person. I went to a few shops in my city, and was very surprised that I did not like anything above 0.5 carats on me, despite loving how larger earrings look on others. IMG_0774.JPG

I hate that you lost one, that sucks, but glad your remaining lovely will soon have a new friend!

Picking up my diamond stud tonight. So excited and nervous! .53 carat RB. Will post a pic of new one, beside remaining stud. I've missed wearing my earrings. It's funny how jewelry can make us feel.

Haha. I keep trying not to and not to continue doing frenzied searches but …

I'll play!! Not as impressive as those 10caraters (be careful you don't tip over in those beauties @teslagirl1234 :mrgreen2:) Mine are much more modest but so far DSS hasn't caused me to need bigger. Wear them everyday, all day, love to mix up the order from time to time. They are comfy and perfect whether casual or dressy. Diamonds are a girl's best friend!! 20220227_170911.jpg

Gorgeous @000Ed more and more I wana grow my collection too... all the PS eye candy is corrupting me lol. Keep thinking the best solution is more ear piercings (wish I still had the guts like when I was a teen and did the 3 on each side :mrgreen2:)

thank you so much!! I have 2nd and 3rd done 4 years ago and had them measured and spaced. the bottom 2 are 13mm and 6mm CZ in a implant grade stainless from my piercer. while my 3rd one is the 14kt white gold diamond. I would love to upgrade them to like 15mm-6mm 14kt white gold diamond setup but I just cant afford that now. I am getting into more fine jewelry and classy looking setup as my style is say more alt but I do really enjoy a dressy look as well. I ended up actually wearing this stack to a wedding with my hair in a bun. got lots of complements I think most thought they were all real. which got me thinking do I need real ones? I do want more real ones though

They look fabulous @000Ed , the settings really give them a "real" look. Mine are 14kt, like you I previously wore nice CZ studs. Finally I got the bug and ordered 3 sets. Wasn't sure what size, so planned to try them and keep only one set LOL! Once they were in my greedy little hands I was hooked. Loved the stack and couldn't send back such sparklers! I get so much joy every day wearing them, cost per wear keeps getting lower, well worth it. If you do switch to diamonds the PS experts could seek out the perfect stones for you! If (eh hem, when, haha) I decide to go larger, I'm definitely gonna ask for them to find the perfect ones for me!

thank you so much! I have been more focused on my ear project then more diamonds though but my friends have been enabling me (how do you have more earrings then I do but you dont even had diamond earrings) so now I am hooked when the time is right I did find a place that can make me a pair. if I am going this far I want nice sizing and spacing. so glad I was measured and had them done right. but I still need to finish my other ear 1st I am thinking unless I find an extra deal/score we will see what happens. I too love seeing others ear candy cause its way better then real candy
