I like very simple things.
I recently went to my dealer & noticed he had a really nice set of diamond studs on the table ( by dealer i mean my coin dealer) He had just showed them to a person who decided not to purchase them , they were both 4C 65 points brilliant cut on white gold posts.
Is this what you mean by simple ?
I got them for just under $400.00, I gave them to my girlfriend, just because it wasn't any holiday/birthday/occassion I just wanted to do something nice for her.
She was quite thrilled & I would get phone calls like "I'm doing laundry wearing diamonds in my ears lol"
She then went & had the damn things appraised at a jewelery store & was told they're value to be in excess of $1000.00 ... now she doesn't wear them, because she might lose one !
These earings have twist on backs...like they're threaded.
Anyway FYI , if you're looking for a good deal on jewelry try your local coin store, they will often sell you peices based solely on the bullion value of the precious metal & IME what they charge for jewels is below any price you'll pay at a jewelry store.
