Two new pairs of earrings!
« on: November 24, 2013, 05:59:58 PM »
So I recently sold my diamonds studs, .70 cttw and a few other rings. I used the money to satisfy my craving for yellow diamonds and old cuts :)

My yellow diamond dangles. .80 cttw Y-Z and SI2. I have been wearing these non stop since I got them. They are perfect and I can't wait to expand my yellow gold jewelry now, these earrings have inspired me to branch out!

Aaannnnnddddd my new studs! I went in a different direction on these ones. I found them on eBay from a vendor with a good return policy and actually won the auction! I don't have much luck with auctions so I'm really hoping these work out. They have an EGL USA certification card but it was done as they were mounted so I know I can't put to much weight in it. They are 1.28 cttw, quite a size upgrade, H-I color and VS2-SI1 clarity. I hate screw back earrings and I love bezels so these will definitely be getting a re-set eventually. When I have them reset I will send them to GIA for proper certs. I should be getting them tomorrow and I can't wait!

It's David's fault I fell in love with old cuts. He supplied my wonky little OMC that I have on my three stone bezel pedant. Modern RB's just don't hold my heart the way these do.

Nice cut on the OECs. I like them much more than super-duper-ideal modern cuts.

And the bezel wire on the yellows is scrumptious.

Congratulations!

They sound marvelous.  Hope they meet your expectations, Sanchica.  We'll be waiting for an earshot or two, in the interim.  I love D's yellow gold with ANY diamond, but yellow on yellow is just to die for.

The OEC's are here! They are just what I was craving! I can't wait to be able to re-set them into bezels! I'll try to take good pics on Friday since I'll be off from work.

Yum!  They are lovely now, and should be fantastic when bezel set.  (I love my light blue sapphires that are bezelled.)  How long do you have to wait to have them reset or are they going home to D soon?

I don't know if D will do the settings since I bought the diamonds on eBay. Either way I've blown my funds on TWO pairs of earrings so maybe the re-set will be for next year's Birthday/Christmas.

Boy howdy, do I know that call.  I hate to wait,  but it will be worth it  - plus, you can wear them as is until you're ready to reset.  That is, once you decide to take off the yellow dangles.  Hard choices.  LOL
