What would you do? Wonky OEC's
So during the black Friday deals I got a pair of Classic OEC moissy's 5.5mm for a screaming good deal.  We are talking I got the PAIR for way less then the cost of just one OEC!!  I wanted to have them made into a pair of studs.  The color is great actually BUT they are the cuts are a bit wonky and the culets are different sizes. Sometimes I look at them and they really do look like old cut OEC diamonds, but then the perfectionist in me comes out.    I have until the end of the month to return them, but I keep going back and forth, keep them, return them.  I could never set them in a ring together, that would drive me CRAZY!! But as earrings you don't see both together...why am I trying to find an excuse to keep these stones! UGHHHH!! 

The pictures I took aren't any better then the quick video so here it is (remember to adjust the quality to 1080):





What would you do????

Ugh.  I'm sorry, but that would drive me nuts.  I couldn't keep them. The one with the large culet is really pretty though!  Would they let you exchange the other for the same price, on the off-chance you get a better one?

I would not send them back because of the 5.5mm size and they are in stud earrings. You got a great deal.

The cut, color and sparkle are pretty on both, but one has a large culet (my preference). Is it really that obvious in 5.5mm? on a close up video, the cut is difference is clearly visible. For larger stones I would def. return and would want a pair that matches better. But for 5.5mm, I may keep. It would depend what they look like from a distance. Do you have a distance shot?

Yeah that! On the ear, who'll notice? I wouldn't and I'm sure no one else is as obsessed as we are anyway!  Crackup

For earrings they are ok. If they were to be sidestones heck no.

I love the large culet on the right stone- just lovely!

I get distracted by shiny things

I like them both and think they would make great earrings! It's not going to be noticeable from a distance in earrings that they are not cut exactly the same, esp in the small size that they are. I say go for it and make earrings! Smile

My 6mm OEC diamond studs are different from each other, cut-wise. One has a larger culet, and a weensy carbon spot. The other is VS, w/ a tiny culet. The differences would be very obvious with a loupe (10x), yet on the ear, all that's visible is sparkle-sparkle-fire!

I think the slight difference makes your OECs more old-cut diamond-like. If it were me, I'd keep 'em and do the studs. There is no way they can seen at the same time—your face separates them.  Tongue

Yup, I'd go for it since they will be earrings and nobody will ever notice the cutlet differences.  Also agree that in diamond pec earrings that is probably not super uncommon.
