The metal is sloppy in areas, is not a high end setting with inconsistent polishing. Thinkness varies. The off colored mined diamonds at the second level are such poor quality they appear DIRTY!!! The design to mask poor quality dirty yellowed diamonds with a surround of white gold looks cheap. I have to say, pricing these at $1200 is robbery. No one should ever pay for anything but the 14kt gold setting. They also stand out higher from the ears and seeing they do not have the sparkle of a quality diamond, they look like a mole! Lol. The price of $299 is about right for an all-season price. Even so, this price would be for somone wanting to say they are wearing real diamonds and can’t afford anything better. Cz’a and Moissonite are a much better buy in 14kt gold. We laughed when the sterling silver sets for a sale price of $30 look much better than these on the ear! It’s too bad. I will post photos later! I wanted to warn people asap!
