First of all, even though this was a purchase on a much smaller scale than most on PS, I just want to thank everyone who was helping me sort out the options in this thread: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/small-diamond-studs-couple-questions.78233/

I am SO happy with these! They''re 1/3 total ctw from ERD - rbs in 4-prong baskets ( linky ). Mark was great to work with and WOW were they quick to arrive! He mentioned that he''ll be raising prices before July, so if you''re thinking about purchasing a small pair of studs, I recommend doing it quickly!

And here''s the photos! :)

I should mention that they''re going back in the box after this afternoon and will remain in DH''s custody until our anniversary...It''s going to be a long month!

In the small diamond studs thread, there was a LOT of discussion about 3 prong, 4 prong, bezel and then screw back/friction. I went back and forth SO many times, but I''m really happy with the 4-prong screw back. They''re comfy, stay put, and the 4-prong gives them a nice presence, sturdy, but they don''t take away from the stone.

Thanks Jen! I''m hoping it will be a "short" month - but DH is adamant that he will not be talked into letting me have them early. We''ll see ;-) Regardless, I think it will be worth the wait. :)

Last one - the obligatory ear shot (ugh, these are truly awful to take, btw!! I now totally understand why everyone complains about ears being photographed in macro on the show me your diamond studs thread!)

Haha, I was posting it right when you were, Cristy :) Thank you, btw!! This photo is horrible because the diamonds are blurry (I swear they do NOT look dull IRL)...I couldn't get the macro to focus on the right place on my ear for the life of me. I really like the size - they're my first diamond studs (well...I've had chips from Kohls, but I don't think those count) and they're plenty noticeable while still remaining casual and understated.

That''s too funny..... we were on the same wavelength!


I think they look perfect in your ears... exactly as stated... "plenty noticeable while still remaining casual and understated"! That''s about what the look I have been thinking of going with! Thank you so much for posting that, I am starting early to direct my DH for gifts for Bday and anniversary! They are really beautiful! Thanks again!

Thank you Coati, Addy, Bee, Gwen, Siamese Kitty, Dana, Michelle, Tuckins, Chiquitapet!

DH bought me a daisy plant at a farmer''s market and so far I haven''t killed them, so I''m glad y''all liked the flower pics!! Diamonds and daisies are pretty much my favorite combination in the whole world.

Elmorton,

Your earrings are beautiful. I hope your hubby doesn''t make you wait a whole month. I love the flower shots too.

The earrings look beautiful on your ears. You have cute little ears by the way.

Love the shots; they really are VERY sparkly! I have been thinking about getting some small studs, but can''t decide between sapphires or diamonds. Thanks for posting about them
