Hello, sorry to be such a pain as I still havent made up mind about which studs I will be buying. :confused: I have been talking to WF/ BGD so far WF has the best service so far! They actually rang me within minutes of emailing an enquiry to Australia! Thats what I call service! I hope to finalise everything by early next week. Came across James Allen with their hearts and arrows collection. How do they match up with WF ACAs? I have choosen 3 to compare from JA, which looks pretty fine to me and the price is a little lower then WF (and I can get a bit more carat from JA). But are they worth it? Please give me your 2 cents worth and help me get my very first pair of diamond studs!

Woooo, yay for you s_s, I have a pair of studs from WF about to embark on the long journey home to mamma here in Aus too! :appl: The JA stones look fine, but WF has a better return policy than most, which is one reason I went with WF, as it is imperative that the ability to upgrade my studs is in my future :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

And them yummy WF ACAs are deeeelicious!! :lickout:

I've ordered studs from WF twice. The ability to trade-in is a major plus to me. Of those 3 JA stones, I'd eliminate #918 because the crown angle goes below 34 and it is not as good of a match as the other two as far as consistency of specs. However, my WF ones are usually a closer match than these because they are cutting their stones to a more narrow set of specs, usually.

I think they would all match fine for studs, the diameters overlap and specs look similar enough. The hearts don't look perfect but I think they would make an excellent pair of studs. I would call JA and ask which 2 would make the best matching pair
