Re: Help me Help me Help me!!!!!

Sorry, read the measurements of your stone wrong and thought it was 8mm...so you might be able to get away with the .5mm difference then. I would ask a jeweller or maybe someone on here will chime in. I also had a thought; if you have any second hand jewellers near you then it might be worth checkin...

Re: Help me Help me Help me!!!!!

I found a 8×12mm emerald diamond halo setting on Lord of the gems or something (one of the recommended vendors from the list),? Would this work? My measurements are 7x12mm so does that 1mm make a difference? You could tell them the measurements of your stone, since they will alter the mount to fit ...

Re: Help me Help me Help me!!!!!

If you are in London then you're spoiled for choice since you have Hatton Garden! :) I don't know anyone there personally, but I went with a jeweller friend a few weeks ago and met a guy in the entrance of the Hatton Garden Arcade who she knows that can do reasonably priced commissions with CAD if y...

Re: Help me Help me Help me!!!!!

Pleeeeease! I've gone from telling myself I'd never buy a unset stone because it's just so much hassle and I have no idea who would set it for me in the UK , to buying TWO loose gems last night! Where abouts roughly in the UK are you? I had the same problem when I first wanted to set stones, but no...

Re: Two Vintage Green Tourmaline Rings

Does anyone know the identifying characteristics of a Paraiba? Should it come up 1.62 on the refractometer like a regular tourmaline? The difference between a Paraiba and other Tourmalines is not the RI - it's the chemical make up. Paraibas have to be copper bearing. HOWEVER, just because a Tourmal...

Re: Poll: One $3k stone, 3 x $1k stones or 30 x $100 stones?

I voted for option 2 but really, I'm all over the place. I've bought some cheap stones that I love, and some expensive ones that I didn't. The most expensive stone I ever bought was awful in person, which made me realize even more that spending lots of money doesn't necessarily mean you're getting n...

Re: wow. how big is to big?

I agree with TL. This vendor makes me laugh with their stupid/weird backstories about millionaires wanting to flog their jewellery with them on ebay. I think in one of the videos there is even a shot of a tray of rings which are obviously plastic. They do however, have some lovely jewellery that I w...

Re: 1.03 carat tsavorite

Such a beautiful tsavorite! You can definitely see that the colour is a bright, glowing green, I bet its stunning in real life. Dont worry about not having a 'huge' stone. I think when it comes to tsavorites, you're not going to have a very big one unless you're extremely rich, and even then you nee...

Re: Yellow, Rose, or White Gold for blue green tourmaline?

I agree that setting it in rose gold will definitely make the stone 'pop', but unless you go two-tone, the rest of the necklace could end up disappearing on the neckline, and I think in that case, white gold/platinum would look better. Love the colour of your tourmaline by the way, I'm sure it will ...

Sorry to hear about your problems with this Etsy vendor. It's annoying that you cant leave a review since it's been so long.
