These Victorian diamond knots took 2 years to match. They are not a perfect match but close to it. They are 3 dimensional and beautifully made with repousseé work. These are great everyday diamond studs.
These knots were converted from stickpins and had the pins removed and the posts recently soldered on. These earrings include 14k rose gold posts and friction backs.
Differences: I am noting what makes this not identical so there are no surprises. Both repoussé knots have a swirl design but they are not identical. One earring is pinker than the other, every so slightly. One diamond is set in a four prong and the other is in a five prong head. One earring is slightly larger, please refer to measurements.

Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
