    Hello out there in PS land! It's been YEARS, but we're on the hunt for a pair of diamond studs. Whiteflash has a pair I'm interested in (with the w-prong setting) but want to see what you guys would recommend. Like I said, it's been awhile and my diamond knowledge is a little dusty. Someone pick out some beauties, no bigger than ~1ctw (.40-.50). TIA :mrgreen:

    Hi!! You guys are awesome. I totally miss this place! Thanks, DS!! I was wondering if I was better off picking out my own 2 diamonds versus selecting a pair they've already selected, just wasn't sure if there was a better value one way or another? Not really a budget, just thought around .4-.5 would look best on my lobes, but I could do a smidge bigger if peer-pressured :mrgreen: :saint:

    DS, I'm checking out your "Show Me Your Diamond Studs" thread...such a great reference!

    I remember you, too, by the way! Yes, that is a loooong thread and was started because I was looking for studs and didn't know what size!

    I think the main advantage of ordering individual stones is that they can be upgraded later if you want. The pre-set ones are not. I searched .40-.49 G-H-I color and VS2-SI1 clarity and there just weren't many pairs in that range. The prices jump up at .50 but I think there will be many more choices.

    DS, thank you! Is it worth the jump to .50? We're still looking and perusing the ~.50cts...what would you recommend from those? That's nice to be able to upgrade, good to know.

    ETA: I shouldn't be asking you if it's worth it, hehe...any good-lookin' .50ish???

    Okay, there are plenty of G VS2 stones around $2000 each in the low .50 range. I am not seeing any great ACA matches in H or I color, VS2-SI1. Any 2 of these three are fine together.

    Also, here are some .42 G stones, Expert Selection, that might work:

    I think these won't really show the difference in the fatness of the arrows in stones this small.

    You're awesome, DS! Yeah, I think I like your original 2 the best. I would just rather put the money for best spread of carat size and not color/inclusions, stinks there's not an H/I SI1/2 combo somewhere. What do you think of this one? I don't think he had a nice buddy to go with though...http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2813876.htm

    maybe this one? http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2813871.htm
    but is that .20ish difference in size really going to make a difference?

    Regarding the first one, yes, the other I color diamonds were .40-.42 and I couldn't handle two different sizes!

    The closest stone to the second one is this:

    http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2728080.htm

    You could ask them to take a picture of the two stones to make sure you can't see a size difference. It is very slight but I try to match stones that have at least one number of overlap on the diameter. These might be close enough.

    Ok, I agree, I don't want that big of a difference either. Now comes the choosing part...eek! :eek: I'll email Debi in regards to the .456 I and the .431 H stone to see how they look together. But in the meantime, what would you guys pick from these 3 pairings...just for fun :mrgreen: Thanks, DS (where's the saint smiley)

    I would never get an H and and I in a pair, personally, but some people do.

    The H pair looks really good. As I said, I usually get pairs whose diameters overlap, but I might choose that pair if they'd provide me a picture of the two stones together to make sure they look the same size. I would prefer H color over I with AGS stones.

    I'd recommend getting in touch with Traci or another one of the sales people. Debi is the CEO and doesn't normally do sales.

    Hey KBerly - I just got this BN email with 30% off selected items. The code is SUMMER32 and here is a link for 1ctw cushion studs, basket setting, I colour, SI2. http://www.bluenile.com/diamond-14k-white-gold-studs_24004

    These are RB's, 1ctw, basket setting, I/ I1, 14K wg http://www.bluenile.com/diamond-14k-white-gold-stud-earrings_27767

    Again, lesser quality than your WF options.... so may not be of any interest....but just thought I'd pass it along for you to browse!
