From my reading, the 25% website sale on James Allen specifically excludes certified diamonds and gemstones... or maybe you have a special discount code or something?

Aversion to punctuation?

LOL I have been up since 5 cooking after working my 3 jobs this week. so yeah...oh and the shower water was getting hot and wanted to get in quickly. So I just dashed off my thread without punctuation. Sorry.

So lets modify. I guess the setting was on sale as it looked at check out like there was a discount.

Okay without any discount. Thoughts on these stones. I know that they go against everything we strive for, however, I would be able to get my daughter close to .80 with these.

Please give me your recommendations. 3x with ideal proporations or just excellent cut so I can go bigger. I am willing to up the budget slightly but chime in please on size and quality.

I wear 2.41 studs everyday so I think it is hard for me to picture her in just .50 tcw. What do you guys think.

I know all the talk about Whiteflash ACA and other great companies and deals. I just keep going back to I want her to have pretty studs but not tiny ones. I think .50 is going to look so small....

Discount applies to their uncertified preset studs. These are $1500

I would buy them then talk to JA on Friday. I would ask them if they are going to be eye-clean and bright stones. Then if they come
and you really dont like them, you can send them back. If you're not looking for perfection and you dont think she will want to
trade up at any point then this option may work.

You could order the above then order a pair of the ones below and keep the ones you want.

Other pair options...not perfect but hopefully good enough and if she wants to trade up someday she could...
.72 ctw $1050 total for stones + $285 setting = $1335

http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut/0.36-carat-d-color-si2-clarity-excellent-cut-sku-687733

A little larger at .8 ctw $590 + $630 + $285 = $1505
