Dazzling Gems For the Diva In You!
on March 4, 2010
These are beyond gorgeous . . . I bought them for several reasons: I wanted a pair of diamond earrings with exceptional color and clarity, in a princess cut--set only in platinum, and 1/4 ctw is ideal, because the one carats I have are set in screw-backs, and though I wear them for work or going out, they are laborious and time-consuming to put in and out. These are simple push-backs, but fear not: they are not flimsy or light. The platinum is solid and has good heft to it, such that they feel secure. They're a breeze to get in and out and I wear them almost daily with everything. The stones are clean, bright, and scintillating, especially in light. The quality is unmistakable and far superior than larger stones with lesser color. I'm ridiculously happy with these, and though you can buy 1/4 ctw diamond studs for a fraction of the price here, the quality is so bad, it's not worth it. The point of a diamond is to sparkle . . . these fit the bill perfectly--they're tiny little dots on the ear lobe, sparkling and scintillating like nobody's business :-)
I'm rarely motivated to write a review, but these earrings warrant gushing and then some. If you're on the fence and dithering about whether or not to buy these, get off the fence already, quit your dithering, and put them in your cart--you will not regret the purchase :-)
Before you buy them, be clear about the obvious: the 1/4 ctw is exactly as the term states: TOTAL carat weight, e.g. each earring is 1/8 carat, so expect them to be tiny, perhaps suitable for a child or teenager. I love them because I'm petite, and already have a pair of 1/2 ctw and 1 ctw studs . . . so these round out my diamond collection nicely :-) As long as you expect small earrings, you'll be blown away by the stunning quality and dazzle of these, and you'll wear them to death--that's a guarantee!
