Re: Tacori 2620 owners... show me your e-ring with wedding b

I have the 2620 and opted for the ID Jewelry eternity band. No pics as I haven't received it yet but do a search for luvmyhalo to view the same band (the one i ordered is all diamonds). I might stack with a matching Tacori band.


LOVE it.  Congrats on the birth of your son and the ring! 


Going to take a trip to ID either this Friday or next week to view the all diamond version of this eternity.  Keeping fingers crossed that it pairs nicely with my e-ring (AVC Tacori 2620).

I totally agree with asking and trusting WF about the eye-clean inclusion evaluation.  I purchased a D SI2 from GOG.  I was initially intimidated by the SI2 grading but Jon and the independent appraiser assured me that although there were inclusions, the stone was eye-clean. I opted to no...

Congrats! I have the same setting (ordered thru GOG as well) and LOVE it.  I am the most indecisive person but have NO regrets about the setting.  I was involved in the stone and setting selection but once the setting was ordered, I took a back-seat and FF took the reins (proposa...

I have the 2620 and purchased from GOG as well (AVC center).  The prongs are such a minute detail of the setting that I actually had to look to confirm (and yes, double prongs).  The setting is so gorgeous and delicate with SO many special suprise details.  I promise yo...

I enjoyed my stay but can you remove me from the list?  Somewhat ironic as I am currently #67 and was proposed to with a 1.67ct AVC.   Proposal date was 3/27/10.  

Thanks for all your hard work, MissKitty and sending all the LIW lots of proposal dust!

Not a cushion but Luvmyhalo''s eternity (all diamonds).

Was hoping for a ~2ct cushion but due to time constraints, we purchased the 1.67ct. If a ~2ct, I would have selected this LM setting (1061).

Your info is totally secure (at least mine was the two times I placed a diamond on reserve with GOG).  When the reserve or order information is submitted and received you will receive an order confirmation page. 

I agree with the PPs in re: to calling Jon.

I am a little biased since we selected a D colored AVC and the Tacori 2620 setting.  Also a HUGE fan of Leon''s Adrianna and a HW inspired halo setting.  Total personal opinion, but I am not a fan of yellow stones.  I prefer colorless to near colorless (I is my cut-off).

If unable to view IRL, I agree with DD's suggestion of sending the stone to an independent appraiser who is experienced with cushion cut stones.  Make sure to get the return policy in writing prior to having the diamond sent to the appraiser.
