I just ordered some 14k yellow gold stud earrings with the 5mm Chinese white rounds to replace my earrings that were lost. This set is very very close to matching the lost pair, so I am a happy gal!

I'm so happy I grabbed some CZs in that color before they are gone, too! grin



I will post pictures when they come in...

I joined right around the time Wink announced they were no longer getting the CW. Can someone explain the color to me ? On Winks site they look just like the colorless stones.

I thought the CW and the colorless looked the same on the web site too, but I've never seen a stone by stone comparison.

The colorless stones are the equivalent to a D/E color diamond, the Chinese white stone is equivalent to an I/J diamond, ie nearly colorless.

If it was such a big seller why did it get discontinued?

The best way I can say how they differ is think of looking into a diamond and it looks really really WHITE..... that would be a colorless..... with a chinese white when you would look into it it would be more metallic looking with blue red orange sparks instead of just the white/bright light reflecting... I would have to say color wise it was as close to a real diamond look you could get with a sim.... But I do have to say that the baking is helping with colorless stones... I highly recommend it.... smile
