Gorgeous and look great on you - perfect proportions.
I don’t wear earrings to bed or showering.

Your studs are simply gorgeous. They look perfect size on your ears. My two pairs of martini set studs I remove nightly if I’m wearing them as they are large and uncomfortable to sleep in. My small 4 prong studs that I wear in my second hole I don’t take out until unless I’m switching to wear my Martinis.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

I’ve only worn them once since I’ve had them now for a week. I definitely haven’t worn them to bed or to shower. I think the jumbo backs don’t feel too comfortable when I roll around.

I think I’ll just stick to wearing them during the day. Since we’re all wearing masks and my hair is long, they are very hidden.

It kind of gave me the lift I needed during this dreary time.

It was in celebration of our 15th anniversary and other holidays rolled into one. Lol

What I’m thinking about now is a Tacori or similar designed eternity band ( not sure what the collection is, I don’t think it’s the RoyalT one since it doesn’t have diamonds on the platinum curves ) but I just thought it was so well made and the stones well protected, but pricey for the diamond ctw.

Do any of you have a Tacori eternity band that is 2-3 tctw to share pics?
Thanks

@idealw2boys Can you share profile shots so I can get a better look at the setting? I am working with IDJ on my first pair of diamond studs and am contemplating 3 prong martini or 4 prong basket. Your claw prongs look great!
Hi LK,

Here are some detailed pics of the setting and the jumbo backs. Hope it gives you enough perspective.

Gorgeous and a perfect size on you!!

I usually take mine out before showering. Once every few weeks I might forget and shower with them on, but that’s not the norm. I never sleep with mine in. I find it uncomfortable.

Hello all,
I’m happy to finally have my earrings.

I’ve been planning this for months and admiring all of the posts on the Diamond Studs....

First I thought I was going to go for .60-.75 ct ea stones , but then the presence just wasn’t enough in my mind for me, so I debated and then finally went to DH and asked for his approval to use my original engagement ring center for one of the earrings . To me, it just made sense. My original engagement ring sits in a box and is kept at the bank, so I just thought it should see the light and get some wear.

So, with DH’s approval, I set out to find a mate for the stone. The original was bought from Jonathan at GOG 15 years ago. While she is a beauty with lots of fire, she wasn’t in the right setting and I always wanted to upgrade, which I did about 4 years ago, so she has been sitting alone.

She is a GIA 1.06 FVS2 EX VG about 6.56 mm I believe. Now her mate is 1.09 FSI 1 XxX JA True Hearts.

They are both set in a platinum 4 prong basket setting with a low profile with large pushbacks and thin claw prongs. They have a nice size presence on my earlobes.

Thanks for all those that helped me decide on whether I should go with a 4 or 6 prong setting and whether platform white gold in Rocky Talky.

I went with 4 prongs since the original was in a Vatche 6 prong setting and all of the metal just seemed to always bother me.

For those that have diamond studs, do you wear them all the time? i.e. to shower, to bed etc?

Let me know what you think!!
I love your studs so much!! This is exactly the look I am hoping to achieve - F color and the same ratio of stud size to earlobe size. Yours look absolutely perfect! I have one quick question if you don't mind - are you able to tell a difference in light performance between the two studs?

Hi Sandy,
They are both very well match that I can detect tan ever so slight difference. My original stone, the 1.06 has slightly better scintillation than the 1.09. I know this because I took them to our local jeweler here to verify that my stones matched up with the certificates.

Going into the review, I mentally made a note as to which one was which and I was right. I think because my original one was worn daily for over 10 years, so you just get to recognize every nuance about it like your birthmarks or reading a person’s body language after being around them every day for 10 years.

The 1.09 has a lot of fire too, but more so in bright mall lighting.

So just to be consistent, I just make it a point to put the original stone on the left side of the box every time and that’s how I put them on and take them off.

Thank you! And congrats again on your beautiful studs!

These are just lovely, @idealw2boys. Can I ask who did the setting pls? The prong work on these and on your e-ring is terrific!

Congratulations on a perfect acquisition! :wavey:

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Now my dilemma is do I wear them while working from home? Which I have done on days that I feel like I need a pick me up. =)2

But I noticed that when my kids’ tutor comes over she is staring at my earlobes and not really looking at me when I’m talking. Lol

@mrs-b , that is such a great compliment, thank you for your discerning eye.

Yekutiel from IDJ made them for me. It seems like there are different kinds of settings here on PS, so what I did was I sent pictures of the ones I adored and also of ones that I liked and didn’t know who they were made by, just that I liked them.

I think he was ready to let me go since I had to be convinced that I should get 4 prongs low setting with fine claw prongs with a flat back so my earlobes wouldn’t droop or sag or expand based on what other PSers had commented on. So I was just dead set on 6 claw prongs because I equated it with keeping with a rounded solitaire ring, but these are earrings, so with more prongs, it would just make it look like all you could see was metal.

But with these on my earlobes, all you see are the sparkling stones.

I changed my my mind and had to call him right in the morning as they were opening up, and not a minute later since with their service and turnaround that he’s known for, he had already ordered the 6 prong settings! , so I had to tell him he was right I should have listened to him from the beginning!

What I learned from this is, go with a 6 prong stud earring setting if each stone is at least 2.5 ct like m2b’s. They look magnificent and the 6 prongs won’t detract from the stones since they have such a presence, but if your stones are smaller, it’s safer to go with a 4 prong. Just my opinion....
