Hi I am wondering which of the 2 is better in terms of value for earrings. I can either do 2 of Brian Gavin, .24 carat, f color, vs2 for $529

OR

Zoara .24 E color SI1 GIA triple ex, considered eye clean and hearts and arrows by Zoara for $344.

If i go with Brian Gavin's, pair of quarter carat earrings would cost around $1200 whereas a pair from Zoara's would cost around $900.

Here are the specs for Brian Gavin's:

Is Brian Gavin's worth the $300 premium for a pair of earrings with total carat weight .5 carats? Do you think you can notice the sparkle with naked eye?

No I will just buy her a different bigger one if she ever wanted a bigger one later down the line. We will not be upgrading. quarter carat looks like a good size on her ears. These will be set on 3 prong martini setting

What is IDJ?
