Hi all!

I cleaned my best loupe today and thought I would check my tiny diamond studs and see if I could make out the facet pattern. They are vg cut, 0.1 ct h/g si-vs. Not really PS cut standard, but hey, they are so teeny tiny... I bought them 15 years ago, needless to say before I joined PS. I love them! They suit my lifestyle perfectly and I have worn them every day 24/7 since I bought them. Never taken them to check the prongs though, should probably do that!

Anyway, I took some pictures to share, just for fun.

All of them have a slightly different look/pattern I think, especially these two. Also, I really think these two haven't got the same spread! If they were larger I'm sure the difference would show more. The larger one seems to have more fire and the smaller one is more white.



Here are all four.



And well, yes, I should see a jeweler re the prongs....



Thanks for looking!

I absolutely love the look. And I agree that you took some amazing pictures. It makes me realize that a smaller carat weight is totally possible in earrings (edit to add: meaning that if I could easily learn to love them myself). :love:

Thanks junebug17, pinkgem2522, rayt2688, endless_summer, Ally66, bugbear and SparklySoprano!! :appl: :wavey:

I have rather small ears and I think the studs maybe look bigger in the picture than they do IRL. To me they look like small sparkly dots on the ear.

i love how they all look on your ears. I have been thinking of re-piecing mine. I used to have 2, but the second piercing closed and I am too scared to get it done again.

tyty333: thank you!!

Lovinggems: thank you! I agree, I think they work with any outfit! I always keep the top two stud on when I wear dangles, but I very rarely do that. Another great thing is that they are so comfortable, I never feel them on the ear.

himni: thank you! I have actually considered closing the top two piercings a couple if times to get a slightly more traditional look. My work is rather conservative. I've never done it though because I honestly prefer the ear with three piercings over the one with one, I adore the blingy look! I dont really think anyone even notices it at work anyway. I had the piercings done with my mother (she has the same) and so they have a sentimental value for me too.
If you want to have two piercings again I think you should make it a fun experience instead of focusing on the pain! Planning to buy a new earring or stud or celebrating in some other way can make the experience a lot easier. Be sure to post pics if you do! :))
