    I finally committed to a second pair of staple earrings. For four years I’ve primarily (98% of the time) worn my diamond studs. I have wanted a second pair of earrings but I find those very hard for me to buy. I’m ridiculously picky and OCD about so many earring issues, unlike bracelets where I could probably buy those by the dozen.
    I thought I wanted something with more presence but it turns out I just love these tiny sweet studs. I needed them to be light, secure, blingy, and suitable for everyday wear. The mini pave frivole are beautiful and more eye-catching but I just love the Alhambra motif more. Thank you to @yssie for being a second set of eyes for me, and everyone who has given me suggestions and opinions. Each piece of advice has helped me become certain of this choice. And also, these look like @m-2-b ‘s Magic earrings had babies.:mrgreen2:

    Happy 22nd anniversary to me!!

    It was such a pleasure spending the day with you @LLJsmom !! :kiss2::cool2: And on your anniversary no less!

    And I’m so happy you’re finally final happy with your choice!! So many glorious options - I totally see the difficulty committing to just one... being able to say “I’ve tried them all and I like this best” is such a awesome feeling :cool2: And really, with VCA, well, it’s more “just one for now” :mrgreen2:

    They’re similar in size to your studs but a very different look. You’ll have to tell us how they share eartime :kiss2:

    Thank you @kipari ! :wavey:

    Thank you so much @arkieb1 :mrgreen2:

    Thank you @yennyfire ! I love wearing them everyday.

    Thank you @m-2-b ! Yes! We’ve got to start scheming to make it happen! I’m game to come out to the east coast!!


    Thank you @yssie ! I was so happy that you had time to see me. I had been looking forward to your visit for weeks. Thanks for letting me take so long at VCA and just letting me babble on and on. And btw, the pics you took are really great, especially all the perspective and distance shots. I definitely feel more certain of earrings after your visit and some other pieces I may be adding. My studs have been banished for the near future. Gotta figure out what to do with that situation. o_O

    Your OPAL masterpieces are just breath taking IRL. :kiss2: Words seem to fail me. And it gives me ideas. And your RDG. :shock: I really should not have worn my multifocal contacts to see it. I need my regular glasses, or rather NO glasses with a loupe. And geez. YOUR STUDS. AND YOUR ERING. Thanks for allowing me to stare at your ears for at least the first hour of our acquaintance. :lol-2:

    Thank you @ac117 :wavey: This collection seems to grow on its own. Gotta slow it down somehow. o_O

    Thank you @D&T :mrgreen2: I just seem to love the Alhambra motif more and more over time, even at this tiny size.

    Yeah... I was sneaking glances at your wrist so I wasn't paying attention to that ear attention :mrgreen2:

    Keep the studs in the box for a bit!! I think you'll come back to them regularly once you've figured out your new rotation :kiss2:

    These earrings stand out SO much against your skin!! Much more than solitaire studs, even though size-wise they're similar... And I have to say, most of the Sweet pieces do look sweet in the "youthful" sense to me, but not those with pave! Pave turns them into #JewelsForGrownUps so effortlessly :cool2:
