I am interested in buying a tennis bracelet with largish diamonds - probably in the 0.4ct to 0.5ct range. Does anyone have any pictures of bracelets with diamonds of this size ?

Which vendors do you recommend for bracelets - my preference is to get ACA stones from whiteflash but my wife is not entirely happy with the designs on their website. Also do you think that I should downsize the diamonds - ie will 0.5ct look gawdy and over the top ?

All advice appreciated.

Thanks

You''re welcome! And I doubt cflutist will mind someone admiring her bracelet.

Again, I would ask WF if they can do it, I bet they could/would.

I''m sure they can do it. They can either hand-make the setting or they can order almost anything. Just ask.

Ok thanks.

Most 0.4-0.5 ct ACA''s orAGS0''s seem to come with a GIA orAGS report. Given that I dont want to end up with 30 or so reports with no idea which diamond each report applies to, wouldnt it be substantially cheaper to go for ungraded stones and trusting a good vendor such as WF to give you stones that meet your specs ? Surely if a 0.4ct stone costs say $900, a substantial portion of that would be the costof getting it graded by a lab and the associated shipping.

I will look up Wink in the new year - probably unwise to go into detail now given the upcoming holidays.

My wife already has two bangles with 20 cent diamonds but they are in a yellow gold setting. So we are thinking of one bracelet in white gold.

You are absolutely correct. If you go for unpapered stones from a good vendor, you will get the value you want without the added expense of a paper on each stone. At a hundred or so dollars per stone you are talking a pretty fair amount for the bracelet.

In my opinion, a bracelet with diamonds that size will look like there''s a lot of bling.. pretty rock star I think. If you have a big budget, how about downsizing the diamonds on the bracelet (even 0.20 ct each looks like a lot of bling) and put the remainder of the budget on a bigger diamond set into a pendant or ring?
