Ok, so I've been lusting after some of the gorgeous stud earrings you all have posted, especially the ones from Kamoka.
I'm trying to narrow down what I really like. I know my earlobes have a weight limit, so I'm thinking around 8.5 to 9.5 mm for a stud.
What do you think of these?
PETITE GREEN DREAM TAHITIAN PEARL STUD EARRINGS 8.5 mm shiny green with pink centers for $490
BLACK & WHITE TAHITIAN PEARL STUD EARRINGS 9.3 mm aubergine aqua pearl and silver blue white pearl for $490
PINK-GREEN PEACOCK TAHITIAN PEARL STUD EARRINGS 9.4 pink green peacock for $540
But I'm also tempted by these drops:
BRIGHT TAHITIAN GOLDEN GREEN PEACOCK LEVER BACKS 9 mm asymmetrical super green cherry drops for $585
SILVER BRONZE-PINK LEVER BACKS 9.5 mm bronze pink drops for $520
But I have to keep reminding myself that I already have these 11 x 13 mm beauties from Kojima, but they can get a little heavy by the end of the day.
P.S. I'm not sure how to post a link to the vendor photos, so I just gave the description.
I love them all but my favourites are the black and white pair, the bright green golden drops and petite green dream.
The black and white ones are gorgeous and unique. The drops look like they'd be the brightest, flashiest pair and the petite studs look brighter than the larger peacock pair.
Number 3 looks amazing! I have Tahitian drops, but no studs, so a fab pair is on my want list also! Estimate that size earring would be slightly less than 2 grams, making it fairly light. Over 4 grams per ear is getting into the heavier range for many women. (per fine jewelry designer, Judith Ripka.
I like the #1 and #3 the best. I'm a bit indifferent to the black and white...I feel like I'd rather buy a white pair and a black pair of the same size and have 3 options...lol I like the sharpness of #1 tho they are a bit smallish and I tend to like closer to 10mm . I agree that I'd definitely go for round as you already have drop Tahitians ... and those drops are also a bit mismatched for me. Very pretty colours on both of the round studs. ...
