I rely heavily on customer reviews when making a purchase and I normally don't create my own review unless I have something add that others missed or if I had a different experience from the common trends. I thought I knew what I was getting from this purchase but I was wrong.
First, the stones did not match! One was a brilliant, near colorless gem. I was actually very surprised how nice it looked even though I had ordered an I-J color diamond. The second, not so nice. It was clearly yellow and not even a close match. It makes you wonder how someone could even pair the two together it was that obvious. If that wasn't bad enough, upon closer inspection you could see that the cut/design did not match either. The pattern was again, clearly different. To top it all off, we had to take a pressure backing from another earring and use it on this pair since the one that came with the diamonds did not have enough friction to hold on to the stud! This could have been a disaster considering that the reason I bought these was to replace the other stud that my wife lost due to a poor backing.
I give this a two star rating because the first diamond exceeded my expectations for color and clarity. This makes me hopeful that their can be someone out there that will be the happy recipient of a stunning pair of diamond studs.
All in all, my experience was horrible. I've never had any issues with items from Amazon and don't think I will in the future, however, this is probably my first and last jewelry purchase from Amazon.
