Q&A: Help Finding a Pair of Round Cut Earrings for Around $5k Budget

The following is a real email conversation between The Diamond Pro and a reader just like you who contacted us. Personal information is always removed. Learn from these posts, or contact us yourself to get free personalized help.

I was wondering if you would mind helping me look for some diamond earrings? I am looking to be in the range of $4-5k, hopefully a bit closer to 4k.

Just to be sure we are on the same page, are you looking for round cut studs? What setting style do you prefer? Then I’ll gladly send you some recommendations.

I bought my wife a round 2.4 carat a couple of years ago. So, I’m looking for something that would match nicely.

I ordered with Blue Nile before and really liked them.

Thank you for the additional info. Here are my recommendations:

Blue Nile LD13173250
Blue Nile LD11874863

Here are the settings you can choose from:

Thanks for taking the time to put this together for me.

Also, do you think .70 carat size is a good size? Or would it be worth it to go larger (and also increase my budget a bit)?

I am thinking three-prong Martini for the setting…

Well, the size is a matter of personal style and preference. In my opinion, they are big enough, but that’s very subjective.

I also found this pair that is slightly larger (while not being much more expensive):
Blue Nile LD13113108 (This stone has a little bit larger table than we usually recommend but the cut is still perfect)
Blue Nile LD12892980

Great, thanks so much. I am going to think on this and will likely make my decision tomorrow. I’ll be in touch.

I just ordered the bigger ones. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your help.

I’m glad I could help.
