    I would buy the studs from Blue Nile and then look into purchasing jackets from another store. That way, you would have the option of wearing them in a halo so they have more bling when you want it, but you can also wear them for everyday wear without them. That way, you still have the larger, better quality diamonds with the possibility to upgrade later on, but then you have the choice of wearing them with more bling, too.

    Something like these:

    Jackets are a great idea! I would contact Brian Gavin or whiteflash for jackets.

    @goldfish2308:  Generally, the jackets are sold for certain sizes – you can buy them to fit .25 ct studs or 2.00 ct studs and anywhere larger, smaller or in between. So you would just have to check that the jacket is designed to fit the size studs you buy.

    Go with the stud and the jacket idea.  I think it will give you the look you are going for, but also allow you to have a simple stud when you want it.

    I’m biased b/c I don’t like the look of most clusters. I’m tempted to say go for the jacket, but I don’t know how long it would take to come in and then be set. I voted for buying from Blue Nile b/c you’d know when the earrings would be in your hands
