Longtime lurker, infrequent poster here.

I wanted to share my very positive experience with IDJ and Yekutiel and my pretty new sparkles. I had originally thought about lower color at this size for studs, but I saw these stones in person before buying and thought they were both lovely (and under budget!)

1.26 ct four prong martini studs, both GIA XXX

0.63 G SI2 with faint flour and HCA 0.7
0.63 H SI1 with no flour and HCA 0.7

Thank you all! :D :D
It's fun to see the collective excitement, even over what is a modest purchase compared to so many of the other beautiful pieces on PS.

Thanks for sharing! They look great on you! If it's not too much trouble, would you mind taking photos of the back and sides of the post, and the underside of the friction backs please? TIA!

Sure! A bit of fun with the macro lens:
I think they are great simplistic settings, and IDJ's bench did a great job on the prongs

Thank you so much for the macro photos, tuckie!! I love the prongs, too! Are you able to see the color and clarity differences between the two diamonds? Did you decide to go with their standard 14K white gold for the settings?

Yes, these are the standard IDJ 14k white gold settings. I did ask Yekutiel if he would ask the bench to take care with the prongs, and they surely did.

As for the color/clarity - I don't think I'm very color sensitive. I just don't see color in these stones in person - let alone between them. Maybe you can see some color in the photos, but I haven't white balanced the backgrounds so who knows how accurate that is. For example, the prongs photo above shows color, but that is not what I see. My hand was just out of frame and could have influenced the color.

Through a loupe, I can see the inclusions. The SI2 is more apparent given there is a little carbon dot. With my own eyes I can't see anything, even though I now know where to look.

For me personally, I'm not interested in paying for things I cannot see, so I'm very comfortable with the clarity of these stones - and the color too. I think I mentioned before that I was originally thinking of I/J range, but these were available, gorgeous, and under-budget.

Ermagherd the prongs are ridiculously insanely perfect kitty cat claws!

The claws are great. It's nice to see the size I am thinking about for my someday upgrade of my studs.
