I was just wondering if anyone has any stud earrings from Blue Nile. I’m looking at their quarter carat total weight earrings In platinum. They’re H VS2 but it doesn’t say anything about cut so I called them. They said that they range from good to very good cut but that they’re very sparkly. Do you think that they could be with that cut? Does anyone have any and could give me their opinion?

It’s hard to say whether they’ll be ‘very sparkly’ since it’s so subjective. To someone who hasn’t seen an ideal cut diamond before, I’m sure they’ll be sparkly to them. But considering those earrings are most likely graded by Blue Nile themselves (so their probably not a true H VS2) and they only rate it good to very good cut, I have serious doubts. There are definitely more sparkly ones out there, but it may take some searching since the majority of vendors don’t focus on cut quality, especially in studs.
All that being said… if you live in the US and decide on buying it, I came across this deal for a $200 credit at Blue Nile for $100:

I just ordered a pair of .78 ctw princess studs from Blue Nile last month for my mother as a Birthday gift, I should have taken a picture but I did not. They were I color VS2 clarity and they were gorgeous, very sparkly! Each stone came with its own GIA certificate, all of Blue Niles stones are either GIA or AGS certified to my knowledge. I have also ordered my wedding ring from them and my engagement ring which we recently upgraded through them, I will be ordering a pair of studs hopefully in the near future. I should also note the return process was fast and easy, they have excellent customer service, I highly recommend Blue Nile.

DH recently gifted me a pair of 1ctw round diamond earrings in platinum that were VS2, J color, ideal cut. They are very sparkly, came with their own GIA certs and appraised (at an independent jewler) for more than he purchased them for.
