I am looking for round studs , in the .6-.8 ttw area. I have learned gia is more desirable, that ex cut, is better- i dont know anything about where the measurements though

how about this?

Diamond Cut: Round
Diamond Color: I
Diamond Clarity: VS2
Diamond Carat Weight: 0.33
Laboratory: GIA
More Information
SKU: RSD-32745915

Measurements: 4.41-4.43x2.76
Depth: 62.6
Table: 56.00%
Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Excellent
Fluorescence: None

I can get this for under $700.. good? I am looking at blue nile for price comparisons and i see that their ideal range is slightly cheaper.. (maybe $50-100) but i dont know how ideal compares to ex?

We need a little more information on the stones. Can you post he crown and pavilion angles for each stone?

Edit - is that the stats on just one stone? What about the other stone? Is it $700 for 1 stone? I can already tell you that
stone is a little deep.

That is just one. I am looking through their inventory and would have to find a close match.

There are no other specs listed then what is posted but the GIA # 6137588963 I dont know how to link it to the page.

I would say pass on the first one. I couldnt even get the report to come up but its too deep and the cost is too high.

Have you looked at Jamess Allen? Here is an AGS 0 stone, H&A, bigger than what you are looking at for $630.
Even this stone may be overkill for an earring. (and one to match). These are just for example. Seems like
you can get a better deal than what you listed above. I would also consider going down to eye-clean SI1/SI2 for
earrings if that doesnt bother you.

I don't think the title would bother me as long as eye clean is eye clean. That's why I am looking- After spending time on here I realize what crap my current round studs are. Thanks for your help.

Gypsy thanks-
The site I found mine on is a vendor my employer uses (insurance claims) where we are supposed to get a discount- Does not seem very discounted when I am seeing the prices you are able to find on better stones.
Why pay more is right, esp when I should be paying-- nothing lol.
