Overall the earrings are excellent. They are worth the money. I asked my friends what they think about the earrings and it is unanimous that the earrings are pretty.
The size is perfect. About 0.38cm by 0.38cm plus minus 0.03cm.
The diamonds I received are darker than that in the picture. This is not necessary a bad thing as natural blue diamonds are more expensive when the color blue is darker. These diamond, on the other hand, are real but have been processed to look blue (like most blue diamonds you can find). Natural blue diamonds are much more expensive and can easily reach 10000USD++.
Both the diamonds I received have few inclusions/flaws. For one of the earring, I notice a TINY scratch on the table of the diamond. Thus the clarity of that diamond is probably only I1. The other earring also has a scratch but I barely notice the scratch. The clarity of that diamond is probably SI2.
The diamonds sparkle under dim light and that is the most important element for me. I am very satisfied but I think the cut is only "good" and not "very good" as stated because a very good cut diamond would have reflected more light.
I am not sure whether this is the best purchase. If you like diamonds with sparkle, read the reviews from "1/2 ct. Blue - I1 Round Brilliant Cut Diamond Earring Studs" from Katarina. But beware, the clarity of those diamonds are only I1, expect more inclusions/flaws on those diamond.
