    Hello kind PSers. I am getting married in a month and it occurred to me how much I would love a pair of diamond earrings to have for the wedding. I am looking for something that is a stud and vintage/deco in feel, around 1/2 tcw or more, with good earlobe coverage (so pretty clusters are great), and less than $2000 (ideally closer to $1000). Here are a couple options I have come across:

    I LOVE these, but unfortunately they are definitely out of my price range https://www.jamesallen.com/mobile/e...k-white-gold-lotus-flower-earrings-item-61980

    These are a definite contender, but I am not sure how much they will sparkle/flash https://www.brilliantearth.com/Bagu..._greKQ.0&utm_referrer=https://www.google.com/

    I very much like the style of these, and the price, but the I1 clarity and the one customer review is definitely putting me off. Last night those were also 15% off, not sure they would honor that today https://www.bluenile.com/diamond-st...-9xKtnWKoQKZBoCv90QAvD_BwE&click_id=737617982

    So, I realized I should maybe ask the helpful folks on here to see if there is something pretty on the internet that meets my criteria that you could recommend. I did think about using the money for a small starter pair of studs from Whiteflash, but really would like to have earrings with a bit more design and coverage for the wedding. Thank you in advance!!

    Thank you all! I was all set to buy something from IDJ, but was just given a surprise bonus at work in the form of a $3700 Elite Visa gift card. I believe this can be used at a few places that carry jewelry (Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, possibly even Amazon?). I would never think to buy jewelry at these places as I expect it to be marked up like crazy, but given that this is essentially free money- does this change anyone’s recommendations?

    Use that money for a honeymoon wardrobe and spend less than a $1000 on quality earrings that you can wear forever. That's my advice. OK, maybe not spend it all on the wardrobe! My point is that I would use that money for another purpose- unless one of the places you can use the card is Tiffanys, VCA or Cartier :)

    I like it! Here are the ones I have narrowed it down to. Ungraded and I don’t even know the total carat weight, but the stones look super bright and clear and the size is really nice (9 mm) and I have a diamond tester. What does everyone think, too risky and should stick with IDJ (nothing I like is below 1000) or take the plunge with these? https://www.etsy.com/listing/667121999/14k-gold-baguette-round-diamond-stud
