What I really wanted was Little Rivers gorgeous halo studs but the vendor she used is not a preferred vendor. They are the perfect size and price but no go.

Choices: find other earrings similar( can go up to $1500 right now , hers ran $750), get the best possible loose diamond to save for my son to upgrade later when he proposes in a year or two (which I would use now for something, G-H, SI1 ok) , or split the money for my dil and daughter to each get something nice for themselves.

What would you do? Other ideas???

I just checked WF's selection and while they don't have anything just like BGD's halo earrings they have some very pretty earrings and they do have halo's that you purchase separately from the studs. If you have studs you can add the halos. Here is their list of earrings just in case you're interested:

I would get a 100% upgradable diamond which you could trade out for any future larger diamond, then have it sent in one of daniel M's $50 sterling pendants. Makes the most financial sense to me.

ETA- Congratulations you Lucky McLuckerson!

Looked at Whiteflash and they have some really gorgeous "A Cut Above" earrings that are mighty tempting. Also some some pretty halos at Mark Broumand. Anyone have a suggestion for a loose stone?

I say get something for yourself-you're worth it, and you won fair and square! Your son can buy his own e-ring stone! :cheeky:

I like the Blue Nile earrings Circe posted, and Blue Nile does coupon codes for 10% off pretty often. I just searched and it looks like you can get 10% off select jewelry purchases with the code BNACC11. http://www.retailmenot.com/view/bluenile.com

WF ACA studs with their jackets would be gorgeous, too!

I can't wait to see what you get!

Go on Leon Mege's site and take a look around. He does work for H. Winston and makes the closest rings to the actual Winston.

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong thread.

April, get yourself something. I agree that your son can get his own engagement ring.

Congrats AprilBaby! BGD's website says the earrings are supplied by an outside vendor. Wonder if IDJ could get them for you?

Definitely treat yourself! The earrings are lovely, and I think I'd do the WF ones because you could switch the jackets out and use them with colored stone earrings.

AprilBaby, I hope you will find something that you love!

But I just wanted to say that I am also a mother and I delight in giving jewelry to my daughters! I would certainly be happy to help my son with a diamond as well. So I just wanted to tell you that I get it!

You earned it, get yourself something! IF you love those studs, I am sure one of the other vendors can come through for you.
