Hey guys!! I'm completely new to this diamond thing, and this is why I need your help. I'm saving up to buy a pair of diamond studs. However, as much as I've been reading and memorizing, the whole grade and colour thing still confuses me. I fell in love with a pair at Tiffany's, but anything sparkly there is waaaay above my means. So I was wondering if y'all could point me in the right direction. What should I be looking for? Where? Is it possible to find sparkly diamonds that won't have sky-high pricetags? I live in Mexico, and I make a fair salary compared to most of the people here, but I don't think I could afford a pair of earrings worth more than a thousand dollars. And even that would be a huge blow to my pockets. I'm also very close to the US border, so checking out jewelery shops in Texas isn't a problem. Is this even possible?? Or am I dreaming too much??
