      My favorite piece of diamond jewlery is the Pink Amethyst, White & Chocolate Diamond™ Ring. it’s simply stunning!
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=452876&pCatg=11663

      My diamond jewlery memory would be when my husband gave me for xmas, 5 years ago, a necklace that he had custom made for me representing our (then) three daughters. The design is of a three-leaf clover, one leaf for each child encrusted with little diamonds. When our 4th daughter was born, the plan was to have the design altered to create a four-leaf clover. It’s still a plan…as soon as possible it will be done.

      thank you for an amazing giveaway and happy holidays to all!

      When my wife and I were looking at some rings in Niwaka, a japanese jewelry store in manhattan, she found a ring she liked and I purchased it in front of her and we were engaged right there in the store. Afterwards, when paying, I realized my debit card was maxed, so my wife had to end up putting the purchase on her amex. It was funny – she purchased her own engagement ring and wedding band until I later reimbursed her with a check.

      my favorite on sams club is this:

      the 7 ct. total weight necklace under the fashion link on the page – its elegant, classy and very unique.

      I have never owned a piece of diamond jewelry. Every year I have at the top of my Christmas list a pair of diamond earrings. I know that it’s wishful thinking, but you never know when your wish might come true. I’m a 30-year-old single gal, and I have pretty much decided that it might be time to buy myself those earrings! When I saw this post, I thought I’d enter just in case this year was my lucky year! The earrings that I like are the classic ones, but I think the diamond knot earrings are fabulous as well.

      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=455824&pCatg=11666

      So, my wish this year is this elegant diamond knot necklace, and I will start saving for those earrings that hopefully I will be able to purchase in 2010!

      What an amazing giveaway. My diamond story revolves around receiving the diamond studs I got for my college graduation from my dad. They are so special to me, and I was completely surprised to receive them! He gave me them to me over a celebratory dinner with Moet Champagne. It was magical!

      My fave item at Sam’s club is this ring- http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=426266. So unique and chic!

      The first time I ever received a “real” diamond ring was when I got engaged. It was in the middle of the night at 3 AM with just the two of us – nothing could’ve been more romantic than that!

      I absolutely love my diamonds, and completely heart Sam’s Club’s princess-cut stud earrings. Those are definitely a girl’s best friend! And, of course, I would love to add this necklace to my nice collection of high heels. ;)

      I really like this one: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=343591&pCatg=11672

      My grandma got me a really pretty ring that has 3 tiny diamonds in a tension setting. It is very timeless and classic. I would like to get some earrings and a necklace to be able to have great everyday but super classy pieces.

    10. Deirdre  |  10 December 2009 at 8:22 AM

      I received my first diamond in high school, from my mother. She gifted to me a beautiful, yet simple necklace that featured a solitary diamond chip, which she had received from her high school boyfriend. It was her first diamond necklace, so she felt that it best to pass along to me — so as to come full circle.

      I look forward to the day that I can pass it along to my new baby girl.

      I love the circluar shape, so these .50 carat studs from Sam’s Club are my favorite. http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=437457&pCatg=12129

      If I had to pick another piece (if my arm was twisted, haha), this gorgeous necklace would make a great set:

      wow, fab giveaway! well, my very favorite diamond story is my engagement, of course…my husband could hardly wait until we got home from the proposal to start giving me my diamond’s “stats.” but i inherited my grandmother’s diamond earrings when she passed in september, so those are my favorites right now.

      good luck, all! xo

    12. Lara  |  10 December 2009 at 8:25 AM

      what a great giveaway! to be honest, i have not stopped thinking about the gorgeous studs you featured yesterday – http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=410389&pCatg=12129#reviews. they are incredible! so far my list-topping diamond story is receiving my engagement ring in the pouring rain six months ago. it’s my favorite piece of diamond jewelry and i will treasure it always.

      I’d like the 12ct Riviera diamond necklace! (In my wildest dreams… like when I win millions.)
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=438185&pCatg=9666

      My very first “diamond” was the ring my husband gave me when we were dating. It was a gold and silver band with 5 miniscule diamond chips set in it. We used it as my wedding ring because we couldn’t afford furniture, much less diamonds! Ahh to be young and broke…

    15. Anna/quilted giraffe  |  10 December 2009 at 8:47 AM

      Oooh, I love the stud earring!

    16. Miranda  |  10 December 2009 at 8:53 AM

      beautiful.

      Story: my mom gave me one of her two wedding bands (that were made to go on either side of he wedding/engagement ring). I wear it everyday so that I always feel close to her.

      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=447451&pCatg=12131. The Diamond Cluster Studs are beautiful, understated, and elegant. love them!

    17. Heidi  |  10 December 2009 at 8:55 AM

      Ah! that necklace is absolutely beautiful!! hm..looking at the website (Everlon™ Diamond Knot Earrings), http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=447489, the matching earrings to this necklace would be perfect!! I love how this piece of jewelry not only symbolizes love, but it also makes references to the Greek and Roman times! so romantic and magical!

      This ring is an ideal right hand pice. i love the darker metal and slightly edgy design. While I wait patiently for my engagement ring, this right hand would go great with my style…very girly with just a touch of edge!

    19. Virginia  |  10 December 2009 at 9:06 AM

      I love the classic round studs. Would LOVE the 1 carat, but think these are more practical

      love these studs… and they would look perfect with the neckalce!

    21. mineola  |  10 December 2009 at 9:09 AM

      I love the high elegant setting of the .80 ct. t.w. Love Always Diamond Ring- the design is commanding & feminine all at once. Hopefully my diamond story has one of these in my future!

      While I’d love to wax poetic about my diamond story, truth be told I’m merely an aspiring diamond owner at the moment!

    22. Lucy  |  10 December 2009 at 9:16 AM

      I love the look of this ring! So elegant but simple!

    25. Danielle  |  10 December 2009 at 9:58 AM

      This story is about a ring my mom passed down to me. When my mom got her first job in her last year of high school, she decided to use some of her money to buy this beautiful, but understated ring that had rubies and diamonds in it. It almost looked like a flower, but not quite.
      Since I was born, we have never had that much money. My mother is a single parent and works like crazy to give me the best of everything. She gave the ring to me when I graduated from high school because I was around the same age of when she bought it and I had accomplished much more in my life then she had at my age. It’s the only really nice piece of jewelry I own, and I cherish it more than anything.

      The jewelry I picked from Sam’s Club are beautiful because they are feminine and sparkly, but not overdone. They are very sassy and classy at the same time.

      Great for a holiday party:
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=442752&pCatg=11666

      I got a pair of tiny (microscopic) diamond solitaire earrings last year when a local jewelry store was closing down. Boring but true.

      My pick:

    28. Jacqueline  |  10 December 2009 at 11:20 AM

      My favorite memory is actually a lot about my parents, who have been married for 37 years this February. When my parents got married, they were just out of college and didn’t have a lot of money, so the solitaire was relatively small. On their 10th wedding anniversary, they went to Italy (where my mom was born) and saw a beautiful, ornate setting, which my dad bought and had the original diamond set in it. A few years ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. After watching my mom fight, fight, fight through surgery, radiation, and aggressive chemotherapy, my father wanted to do something to commemorate her fight and the remission. He took me, knowing my interest in diamonds, to our favorite jeweler and we toiled for HOURS picking out the perfect new solitaire for my mom’s new ring. I refused to have any flaw- after all, a small flaw on some cellular level led to the cancer to begin with, right? We finally found the perfect (1.5ct) diamond, and he surprised her with it over a candlelit dinner later that week. A beautiful, perfect ring for my beautiful, perfect mother :).

      My favorite piece from the Sam’s Collection is this gorgeous ring:

    29. Laura  |  10 December 2009 at 12:24 PM

      I love this double-circle pendant! http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=417084&pCatg=11668

      My favorite diamond memory is from when I was in middle school and my mom got diamond earrings. She doesn’t have pierced ears, so she promised me that I’d get her earrings if I pierced my ears when I got older. It made me feel so grown up!

    30. Holly  |  10 December 2009 at 1:15 PM

      This ring has always been a favorite of mine. Reminds me of Kate Hudson in that yellow dress in HTLAGITD.
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=387506&pCatg=11663

      My diamond story is too long for a comment so here are the highlights:
      -Picked out perfect engagement ring in platinum with matching wedding band.
      -When sold to us, jeweler did a bait and switch replacing our platinum right with white gold.
      -Noticed something was fishy when we had it upraised and it was WG, not platinum.
      -Confronted jeweler about it. When realized they were caught they came forward with right ring and wedding band.
      -Wanted diamond replaced with canary yellow diamond to offset gold filigree.
      -When picked up, diamond had been replaced with dark yellow sapphire. The sales lady and all the paperwork were never to be found.
      -Since then have gotten many many compliments on beautiful yellow ring. Not what we started with, but it has grown on me and now I love it.

      My grandmother in Thailand hand picked 6 small diamonds and a gorgeous ruby to custom make a ring for my 18th birthday. It means a lot to me because I haven’t had the chance to see her since she has given it to me to thank her.

      I love the simplicity of these princess cut solitaire earrings. http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=351243

    32. Cheryl  |  10 December 2009 at 3:04 PM

      My favorite diamond moment was when my husband gave our daughter some solitaire diamond earrings on the day she graduated from college. I love this necklace from Sam’s:

      I don’t have a diamond story but I love the Diamond Cluster Stud earrings. Thank you Sam’s Club and The Daily Obsession for an exciting giveaway.

    34. Julia  |  10 December 2009 at 5:03 PM

      My first diamonds were beautiful 1ct total weight diamond stud earrings that I received as a college graduation present. No matter what I’m wearing or where I am going, I wear these earrings every single day. They represent classic style and I love the way they bring light and sparkle to my face.

      If I could pick an item for my next diamonds, it would be this amazing three stone ring, which I’d wear as a right-hand ring. Why wait for my boyfriend to give me diamonds, right??

    35. Lauren  |  10 December 2009 at 5:06 PM

      My favorite diamond moment was buying a pair of diamond studs with my first bonus. They go with every outfit and are so beautifully understated and classy.

      My dream piece right now is this Diamond lariat necklace from Sam’s Club.
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=455910&pCatg=11673

      It would look gorgeous with jeans or a ballgown

    36. Erika  |  10 December 2009 at 6:44 PM

      My favorite piece is this ring to match the necklace. It’s stunning.

      My favorite diamond moment was last Christmas. My husband bought me 1/2 ct platinum diamond earrings. He wrapped them in a box inside of another box inside of another box down 5 boxes. I was so surprised! He even got the screw backs on them to ensure they didn’t get lost. I went to get them cleaned a few months later and the lady looked up the purchase as we have to have them “checked” every 6 months to keep the warranty. She smiled and got really excited stating she was the one who sold him the earrings. She said he had spent hours looking at different diamonds and had come in a couple times to make sure he found “the perfect” ones. So sweet!

    37. CherieAnne  |  10 December 2009 at 7:20 PM

      I also like this ring — http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=420565
      My favorite memory is while I was looking for a new wedding band. I lost 65 pounds and rewarded myself with an eternity ring. My husband was happy that I was happy. He wouldn’t dare buy me jewelry.

    38. Caitlin  |  11 December 2009 at 7:24 AM

      My favorite diamond story is about my parents. When they first got married, they were too poor to afford real wedding rings. Instead, they used a pair of cheap rings they had bought at an Indian reservation in Nevada. My mother’s ring had orange glass stones and cost approximately $25. (My father’s ring, also with orange glass stones, cost two dollars more, which prompted constant teasing from my mother.) After twenty years of marriage and two daughters, my mother’s cheap ring started to turn her finger green. My father hadn’t gotten the hint to replace her ring with a diamond at any point in the previous two decades, so my mother decided to “help” him along…by wearing the diamond wedding ring from her first marriage!

      My father brought home a gorgeous diamond wedding ring the very next day…

      My favorite Sam’s Club diamond piece is definitely these earrings (which, coincidentally, match the necklace).

    39. magpie247  |  11 December 2009 at 9:27 AM

      Love this contest.
      My best diamond story is when my parents got divorced. Yeah I know depressing, but what they did made it a little bit better. My mother took her old rings and my great grandmothers diamonds (on my father’s side) and made my sister and me matching necklaces. Each diamond is different and tells a different story. Its a diamond flower and it signifies to me that out of every bad situation something good can come of it. Every time I wear it I am reminded to appreciate everything in life.

      My favorite piece is the princess cut earrings the 3 carat ones obviously :)

      My mother has a really beautiful white gold ring with a tiny diamond in the middle that my grandfather gave her when he was still alive. I grew up seeing it on her finger everyday and it’s probably what I base every ring I own on in terms of aesthetic. She has promised to pass it on to me later and I hope to be able to do the same when I am old~

    41. Kate Rogers  |  11 December 2009 at 11:52 AM

      My favorite diamond story is how my husband bought me diamond earrings for Christmas and told his daughter I had “hit the jackpot!” From then on, these earrings were known as “jackpots!!!”

    42. hofken  |  11 December 2009 at 12:17 PM

      My favorite piece of diamond jewelry from Sam’s Club is the .25 ct. Everlon™ Diamond Solitaire Ring in rose gold (http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=455766&pCatg=11663). I don’t have a favorite diamond story – maybe winning this giveaway could be it!

      Definitely these earrings! http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=442772&pCatg=11666

      My favorite diamond story definitely is when I tried on my mom’s diamond engagement ring when I was about 13. I was trying to see how many fingers I could get it on and ended up shoving it onto my thumb and then spending about an hour crying trying to get it off….it took an entire 24 hours for me to admit to my mom that it wasn’t lost and that it was on my finger the entire time. Moral of the story? Soap and water can accomplish wonders!

    44. Zara K.  |  11 December 2009 at 6:28 PM

      I was really touched when my mother gave me her diamond anniversary ring. She was married to my father for 50 years
      and the ring was the last present he gave her before he passed away. She wanted me to have it to remember him by and I will treasure it always! It’s a sentimental piece
      that makes me think of both my parents when I look at it!

      My favorite piece of diamond jewelry from Sam’s Club is
      the .24 ct. t.w. Pave Diamond Heart Bracelet

      My first diamond memory was as a second grader visiting my neighborhood friend. My neighbor’s mom was in her yard raking leaves. From the corner of her eye, she saw the diamond solitaire fall out of her wedding ring. But she didn’t see where it went. She called out to us kids who were inside the house. We all came running and helped her search her yard for nearly an hour. Miracle of all miracles, we actually found her diamond. To this day (32 years ago), I remember the utter joy on her face when we reunited her with her lost diamond. Yes, happy endings are not just in movies. They happen in real life, too.

      My favorite piece of diamond jewelry from Sam’s club is the princess cut diamond solitaire earrings, http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=351244.

    46. mj  |  11 December 2009 at 9:51 PM

      My favorite diamond memory is my husband’s proposal. He had designed the ring himself, and his cousin, a jeweler, had made it for him. He was worried that it wouldn’t arrive from out-of-state in time for our one-year anniversary of our first date (when he planned to propose), so he had his cousin ship the ring to my house (unknown to me). He was even more worried when the big day came but the ring hadn’t arrived yet! He played it cool, though. We headed out for breakfast, and as we reached the car, the mail truck pulled up, and the postal worker handed us the package. The proposal went down on schedule, and the ring turned out stunning!

      I love these earrings: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=416869

      When I was 16, my mom surprised me with her diamond earrings that my dad gave her for their first wedding anniversary. I was so happy and excited. My parents divorced when I was 4, so it was nice to get to wear a piece of jewelry from the time that they were together. The earrings always remind me that both of my parents love me even though they aren’t together, and they are still friends even now.
      I am in love with this pendant from Sam’s Club!

      Regardless of the size, a diamond is always a timeless and treasured gift to any female. My husband finally learned this after 22 years of marriage and my disappointment that showed with his practical gift of a crock pot and a gadget that melted a stick of margarine our first Christmas. I remind him every year no small appliances please! No one would ever put a diamond in a yard sale to get rid of it! He plans to replace those first year gifts with a diamond necklace finally this year. Would also love to have a treasured ring from Sam’s like the three stone beauty at

      When I was little, I would visit my grandma in Florida about once a year. My favorite part of these trips was always going into my grandma’s closet and trying on her jewelry. She has beautiful vintage diamond necklaces, rights and bracelets. We’d spend at least one evening of every visit sitting on her bed, looking at all her diamond jewelry over the years. Every year, she would give me a special piece of jewelry, sometimes with a diamond or two. I still have and wear all of the jewelry my grandma ever gave me.

      My favorite necklace is http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=447487

      I love this necklace! Sam’s has great jewelry.

      I love this gold Etruscan ring! Looks like you bought it on the Pont de Vecchio in Florenc, IT. Very Elegant.

      I inherited my grandmother’s diamond earrings. Everytime I wear them I remember her. Of course I would rather have my Grandmother than her earrings any day! I will always miss her.

      I love the 1.33 ct Diamond Fashion Ring here
      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=426267

      It’s so pretty!! I’d feel like a princess wearing that. :)

      My husband traded in a diamond ring given to him by his father for an engagement ring for me. It was a total surprise and I was floored that he would do such an unselfish thing. Sadly, he is no longer with us but that ring means as much to me now as it did when he first gave it to me.

      http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=447756 The bright blue topaz and diamonds just glow! On my diamond story, I’m still waiting for it to be told.

    54. Catherine  |  12 December 2009 at 12:09 PM

      My boyfriend and I have been dating for a while..and although marriage isn’t something that’s going to happen in the near future, it has been a subject that we “danced” around with uncertainty because our lives/careers have just begun. But one day, I’m hoping I’d be the recipient of something as pretty as this: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=411427

      A girl can dream, right? But until then, my favorite diamond story is one that consists of my mom surprising me with a heart pendant for my 16th birthday. I wear it all the time and receive compliments for its daintiness. I absolutely love it and my mommy! :)

    55. Jennifer  |  12 December 2009 at 6:21 PM

      I have been fortunate enough to be the oldest granddaughter on both my mother and father’s sides of the family. I was told from the time I knew what jewelry was that I would inherit my maternal grandmother’s engagement ring. I was her namesake and have been told I am a lot like her. My mother held onto the ring after her passing and promised it to be for my 21st birthday. I decided to have it reset into a pendant. I never take it off now and I like to think I keep my grandmother close to my heart.
      From my paternal grandmother, I received my great-grandmother’s engagement ring. I put it into my parent’s care, so my future husband would have to get their blessings in order to get the family stone. I do know my boyfriend has it in his possession and I am so anxious to see how it turns out. We decided to make it our own and have it reset.
      I hope to have plenty of heirlooms to pass onto my own granddaughters. I love jewelry with a story behind it!
      After looking at the Sam’s Club website, it was a tough choice, but my favorite are these earrings:

      I love traditional timeless pieces :)

    56. Nicole  |  12 December 2009 at 10:21 PM

      my favorite memory was when my sisters and I surprized my mom with these diamond earrings for her birthday she was so happy!!

      I love htis ring!!

    57. Ann Marie  |  13 December 2009 at 10:33 AM

      My favorite diamond memory was my third Christmas with my boyfriend. He always buys me goofy gifts but saves a really good one for last and hides it somewhere I won’t expect. Well that Christmas after I opened up all of the other gifts, he didn’t seem to be hinting that he had anything else for me. So we snuggled up on the couch and he asked me to go get his cell phone out of his coat pocket. I did, and also in his pocket was a cute little box wrapped really pretty. I opened it and it was a 14kt white gold 1/2 ct. journey diamond necklace. It was so beautiful! I was very happy that Christmas that I have such a perfect boyfriend!

      I’m crazy about this necklace! I’ve had my eye on it for a while now. It looks vintage (just a little more sparkly!) and reminds me of a necklace my great aunt wore in her wedding photographs in the 1950’s.

      my favorite piece of jewelry is the diamond ring wrap http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=147834&pCatg=11630

      Hubby and I were both married previously and were going through difficult times with our exes when we met. We became friends through a mutual friend, and spent many long hours talking long distance about our problems. After my divorce, we began to realize that things went beyond friendship. He began pursuing a divorce as well, however it took a little longer since she was in Central America. We were both scared about going into another relationship so soon, but took things slowly. One day he solemnly told me that I made him cry, but not tears of sadness, tears of happiness and to prove it he would show me… I was pretty upset until he pulled out a small box from his pocket and in it was a teardrop shaped diamond. That made ME cry, lol. We have been together since, and have been looking at anniversary bands/wraps to celebrate 10+ years of marriage.

      my favourite diamond peice is a diamond necklace that my mom gave me!

    60. Rachael W  |  15 December 2009 at 9:12 AM

      The only diamonds I have are truly special to me. The first is my grandmothers wedding ring, she passed away several years ago and whenever I want to feel close to her, I wear it. The second are from my man. We’ve been dating for 3 years and in casual conversation I mentioned that I had never owned a pair of diamond earrings. I was woken up on my birthday to a pair of beautiful diamond studs!
      Thanks for the giveaway, happy holidays!
      Rachael

    61. Sue  |  17 December 2009 at 8:49 AM

      I would wear that necklace with a black strapless dress, knee high boots and a lovely leopard print wrap. It almost looks vintage!

    62. Laura D  |  17 December 2009 at 9:09 AM

      i would wear that necklace with loose curls, a navy cashmere dress, ankle boots, and my engagement ring!

    63. Elaine  |  17 December 2009 at 1:50 PM

      I would wear that necklace with a black dress (of course), my hair up, a baby on my arm (because that’s where she always is) and gold earrings…

    64. Lindsay  |  17 December 2009 at 2:09 PM

      Stunning…I’d wear with a little black dress!

    65. Anna Levin  |  17 December 2009 at 2:54 PM

      I’d wear it with jeans and a nice black top and black boots!

    66. Alexandra  |  17 December 2009 at 5:16 PM

      I would wear this with a black dress, my hair up, and pumps.

    67. Casie  |  17 December 2009 at 6:35 PM

      This would be worn with my strapless dark purple dress with black booties, this new years eve.

    68. Cherie  |  17 December 2009 at 7:00 PM

      I would wear it with everything! I need a new signature piece ;).

    69. Lola  |  17 December 2009 at 8:00 PM

      I would give it to my mom to wear for her annual February winter party. She has planned to wear a cream dress with black and red piping accents with a gauzy gold wrap.

      My mom is the best!

    70. Erin  |  18 December 2009 at 5:51 AM

      I would wear it with everything. My style is simple and classic with a twist, and that is exactly what this beautiful necklace is! Thanks and Merry Christmas, TDO :)

    71. juliana  |  19 December 2009 at 4:12 PM

      I would wear this beauty with a t shirt and jeans….simple..to show off the sparkle

    72. Ulla  |  19 December 2009 at 6:46 PM

      I would wear it with something red. Maybe a nice satin dress!

    73. teresa  |  19 December 2009 at 6:51 PM

      I’d wear this with a black strapless dress to my office holiday party! Would be beautiful…

    74. lizzy  |  21 December 2009 at 8:54 AM

      I’d wear these earrings with the Herve Leger bandage dress I’m planning to treat myself to (and fit into!) for my fast-approaching 40th birthday!

    75. stacy  |  21 December 2009 at 9:08 AM

      Black cashmere turtleneck, dark JBrand jeans, hair swept back in a ponytail, brown leather boots. I would wear them out shopping for an entire day and then wrap them and give them to my Mom on Christmas Day!

    76. Lisa  |  21 December 2009 at 9:12 AM

      I would wear those beautiful earrings with EVERYTHING… But specifically with my cream colored sweater dress and black pumps. I would also wear them on New Years with my simple V neck, V back mid thigh length black dress. With earrings like those, one would not need a necklace.

    77. Joely  |  21 December 2009 at 9:16 AM

      I think these are so classic and beautiful! I would wear these studs everyday but they would look especially great with a simple black cashmere sweater and black skirt with gold sparkles!

    78. GT  |  21 December 2009 at 9:30 AM

      I found this little black dress in a small shop on 8th Ave & 35st (NYC) two years ago. I’ve been waiting for the perfect night to wear it and I will be doing so on Christmas since it’s my turn to host. These pair of studs would look fabulous with it! I need something positive to happen before the year ends so crossing fingers!!

    79. Ashley  |  21 December 2009 at 9:32 AM

      I would wear these earrings with everything! I have a pair of pearl studs that I wear almost every day, and my husband always teases me about needing something new to mix it up. We just got married last summer and are still paying off our wedding, though, so I won’t be getting any diamonds from him! We’ll be down South with family for the holidays, so I’d wear these gorgeous studs with a sundress, my favorite strappy Manolos, and a lightweight cashmere cardigan. Hopefully I’ll come back home with a tan, which would make the earrings look even better! :)

    80. Jenny  |  21 December 2009 at 9:33 AM

      i would wear these running….

    81. Heather  |  21 December 2009 at 9:49 AM

      I would wear these with EVERYTHING. They are amazing.

    82. Abigail Harmon  |  21 December 2009 at 10:05 AM

      I’d wear these with my classic long green J. crew coat and leather boots! Truth me told, i’d probably never take them out…

    83. Patti  |  21 December 2009 at 10:42 AM

      I would wear them with a black velvet dress for a special night out. Heck-I would just WEAR them!

    84. Megan  |  21 December 2009 at 10:45 AM

      I have a favorite little black BCBG dress with a sparkly neckline. I think that these earring would go perfectly with it!

    85. Kelly  |  21 December 2009 at 10:58 AM

      I’d wear these with my sequin top and black pants for New Years Eve. Gorgeous!

    86. Annie  |  21 December 2009 at 11:11 AM

      Those earrings go perfectly with my new engagement ring! I mean, let’s be honest, those earrings would go perfectly with any outfit!

    87. shoppingsmycardio  |  21 December 2009 at 11:42 AM

      i’d wear these beautiful studs with pajamas on christmas day…i’m thinking diamonds are the perfect way to make my PJs acceptable for all-day wear, at least for one day!

    88. Hallie  |  21 December 2009 at 11:44 AM

      I would wear these with a black pencil skirt, a sparkly tank, and some Louboutin very prive pumps! Actually, I would pretty much wear them with anything!

    89. Char C  |  21 December 2009 at 11:51 AM

      I would wear these .96 ct. t.w. Round Diamond Studs along with a diamond pendant and my new form fitting black dress (http://secondcitystyle.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/11/03/ysl_dress.jpg).

    90. casey k  |  21 December 2009 at 12:23 PM

      … with my favorite christmas pj’s, sipping on a cup of tea :)

    91. Shannon  |  21 December 2009 at 12:32 PM

      Wow, these earrings would go great with anything. My holidays are pretty casual. I would wear them with black cords and a gray cashmere sweater. These would make my outfit sparkly and special!

    92. Susan Outlaw  |  21 December 2009 at 12:51 PM

      So gorgeous! I’d wear these with a LBD and my favorite diamond- my engagement ring. These are perfect!

    93. Malorie Kaye  |  21 December 2009 at 12:51 PM

      Those chic stunners are definitely every day earrings, you can never go wrong with diamond studs! But for the holidays I would totally pair them with a classic black velvet, long sleeve, mini party dress, killer molten silver Louboutin Robot ankle booties and a giant black satin bow headband, maybe a couple of cocktail rings. The final touch would have to be Minx metallic nails. Very few jewels, diamonds speak for themselves.

    94. Denise  |  21 December 2009 at 1:36 PM

      I’ve had a busy year with grad school and working full time. All I want to do this Christmas is relax in bed wearing my favorite pajamas and these earrings. Nothing is more luxurious than free time, well diamonds of course!

    95. Susie  |  21 December 2009 at 3:30 PM

      These beauties would look good with anything and on anyone. Hopefully that anyone is me!

      texmvp03@att.net

    96. Lauren  |  21 December 2009 at 3:31 PM

      I’m loving these earrings!These would look great with any holiday look.

      Sadly, I do not have a memorable diamond moment yet, but hopefully I will sometime soon!

    97. Ashley  |  21 December 2009 at 3:34 PM

      I think these earrings are gorgeous and would wear them with my LBD (a new silk one from Ann Taylor). However, since I rarely have occasion to wear that dress, I would probably wear them with jeans and a sweater as well!

    98. Elaine  |  21 December 2009 at 6:49 PM

      I would wear these to church on Christmas Eve!

    99. Sherry B.  |  21 December 2009 at 10:15 PM

      The red velvet dress that I’m wearing to a very special Christmas dinner!

    100. katy  |  22 December 2009 at 3:50 AM

      What girl couldn’t use more diamonds I would love to win these so I could give them to my stepmom!

    101. Sue C  |  22 December 2009 at 4:00 AM

      I think these earrings are stunning and would look fantastic with a black cashmere turtleneck sweater.

    102. Rara  |  22 December 2009 at 4:22 AM

      I just gave birth and really couldn’t ask for anything more but these earrings would be a really nice ‘push’ gift for myself. It’ll look great with everything!

    103. liz  |  22 December 2009 at 6:25 AM

      I’d probably leave these on for the entire holiday season :)

    104. ann  |  22 December 2009 at 6:26 AM

      I would wear them on New Year’s Eve!

    105. Micquella  |  22 December 2009 at 7:58 AM

      I would wear these with a full, high-waisted silver skirt, a white tank with ruffles around the neck, and black patent flats!

    106. Emily  |  22 December 2009 at 8:18 AM

      I would wear these with my dark skinny jeans and my cowl neck black cashmere sweater on Christmas day – but they would look just as good with my pajamas Christmas morning!

    107. Lu Lu  |  22 December 2009 at 10:43 AM

      I would wear these with my red sweater dress!

    108. Rosemarie  |  22 December 2009 at 11:10 AM

      I would wear these earrings with everything! That is what is so great about diamond studs, they work with anything and look timeless and classy. Happy Holidays!

    109. D Liu  |  22 December 2009 at 12:51 PM

      Damn son. I NEED THESE EARRINGS. I’ll wear them with my red shirt that says Bayside on it.

    110. Luci  |  22 December 2009 at 3:11 PM

      I would wear these EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE! They deserve to experience life with me! :)

      Diamonds go with everything, they’ll make the most basic jeans and tee special.

    111. Carolyn  |  22 December 2009 at 5:51 PM

      I would wear these with my mauve strapless dress and silver high heels. They’d make me feel special regardless of whether I had a date or not!

    112. Annie  |  22 December 2009 at 8:35 PM

      these are soo gorgeous! I have the perfect dress that would go with this and a purple bow headband. this is such an amazing give away! I would wear them all the time.

    113. Haina  |  23 December 2009 at 12:37 AM

      I would love these to wear with my purple sweater dress!

    114. Brooke  |  23 December 2009 at 5:59 AM

      I would wear these with a LBD and a sparkly blue clutch.

    115. Rosemary  |  23 December 2009 at 8:02 AM

      I would wear these fabulous sparkly earrings with my black strapless vintage dress. And with jeans and boots. And with
      absolutely nothing else on.

    116. Teresa  |  23 December 2009 at 8:11 AM

      I would wear these earrings with everything!

    117. faith  |  23 December 2009 at 11:09 AM

      ooh, so pretty! i think they would add just the right amount of sparkle to the brunch we usually host on christmas morning. this year i’m thinking striped shirt with a boatneck neckline and skinny jeans. & i would definitely find a way to wear them on nye!

    118. Jill Perry  |  23 December 2009 at 12:08 PM

      This are Gorgeous!!! Not only would I wear these earrings this holiday season, but I would probably wear them 5 times a week, if not 7!! I will also definatly be wearing them to my holiday party with my black long sleeve dress worn with knee high boots and a scarf, these earrings will add just the perfect amount of sparkle!!

    119. Joanna  |  23 December 2009 at 12:27 PM

      I’d wear these with a hot New Years Eve outfit!

    120. Melanie  |  23 December 2009 at 12:32 PM

      I would be over-the-moon happy to wear these on my wedding day this summer!

    121. Margaret  |  23 December 2009 at 1:18 PM

      Diamonds are def my best friend!

      I’d wear these with my hair halfway up, so they will sparkle in the light! I’d wear them with my new black dress on new years. Stunna LOL

    122. Haya  |  23 December 2009 at 8:23 PM

      This year is an “out-law” Christmas, which means my married siblings all go to their respective in-laws. That leaves the singles at home. The earrings would be a perfect gift that would sparkle against the fire and say it’s ok to still be single!

    123. Crystal  |  24 December 2009 at 10:24 AM

      I would wear these with absolutely everything!!

    124. Hui  |  24 December 2009 at 11:32 AM

      I would wear these with my little black dress! :)

    125. Heidi  |  24 December 2009 at 3:08 PM

      I would wear these with black jeans, white top, and a teal cardigan with below the knee boots! these earrings seem timeless yet perfect enough to glam up anything!

    126. Kohinoor  |  26 December 2009 at 9:03 AM

      I would definitely wear these with a sparkly, colorful sari. with my hands and feet covered in intricate henna designs. Those earrings would be the right touch to any glam outfit.

    127. Nicole  |  26 December 2009 at 10:19 AM

      I would wear these diamonds with everything :) I would especially wear them during the holidays when life is stressful. Diamonds can always put a smile on your face when too many calories have been eaten and too many relatives over. Best of all… they always fit after pumpkin pie.

    128. Virginia  |  28 December 2009 at 12:56 PM

      I adore these!! I would wear thme to jazz up an all-balck outfit. I’d also love a little sparkle for my NYE festivities.
