I recently got diamond studs from Whiteflash (who have been wonderful BTW). I started out looking at 1ctw and decided that wasn't big enough so I got 80 points each ear. When looking at earrings in the stores, this size was substantially bigger than the 50 points each ear I had started out looking at and I thought I'd be quite happy with them and maybe never want an upgrade. In order to get the bigger size, I went down to K in color. They are well cut and clarity is good. But I am a bit disappointed that no one has commented on them. A couple of friends who knew I was shopping for them did say something like "Oh nice!" but no one has noticed on their own. I know diamond earrings are a basic and many people (including guys) are wearing them nowadays in all sizes, and qualities and some CZs. But I'm kind of wondering if by going down in color, my earrings are not popping against my fair skin. I'm almost tempted to go to a jewelry store and try on some whiter ones to see if there is much difference. But when I was shopping, I looked at different colored stores and didn't seem to be color sensitive. Am I just being horriby neurotic?
