Re: Happy Birthday Gypsy!

Aww... thanks so much everyone! I was on my phone earlier and couldn't really type on the tiny screen. d I am so lucky in my PS family and friends. You guys rock. No bling for me, and probably not any for a long time. We are really trying very hard to move out of CA and buy a house. So big expenses ...

Re: Searching for 8 main Cushion

It's going to look very different. The faceting is exactly like a round to the naked eye, but in a square shape.

I love this stone so far. Let's wait to see what the ASET looks like. But I really like this one.

Re: So upset. Neighbor came on to me.

Very sorry to hear this! You have done the best you can by letting your local police know about this. 'I' would find his wife's number and have her on speed dial for next time.

Re: Advice on engagement ring settings

The entire purpose of faceting a diamond is to reflect light. How well or how poorly a diamond does this determines how beautiful it is. How well a diamond performs is determined by the angles and cutting. This is why we say cut is king. No other factor: not color, not clarity has as much of an impa...

Re: Advice on engagement ring settings

Engagement Rings direct can. But it will cost you. Your best bet is to find something as close as possible to what she want with a designer that customizes like Beverly K or Gabriel. Also look at Brian Gavin. Does she like this one: http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/engagement-rings/pave-and-side-st...

Re: Advice choosing a cushion cut diamond!

Biggest difference is price. Blue Niles H&A are much less expensive and still have amazing performance and all of them are guaranteed eyeclean. And the Blue Nile stones are more 'cushion' shaped. The other two are much more square with straight sides. I'd buy one from them and then send it to ER...

Re: Searching for 8 main Cushion

Okay so here's what I'd do. Contact JA. Buy the I stone. But tell them and make sure they understand, that they cannot ship it until you give the OK. Ask them to just hold it for now.

How that's surprising. I expected them to have different facet plots given the videos. But they don't. Okay so here's my order of preference. #1 E 1.6 ERD stone It's 7x7 mm. Pros: It has lovely faceting under the table that I can really see on the video and it's E color. It's a lovely size (spread) ...

Re: Buyer's Remorse?

A) you are welcome. B) Neil is right. It's like wedding dresses. You commit to one, and never look at another.

I think the ring will knock your socks off. And you have a nice upgrade policy. If sometime down the road you decide you want to upgrade you can exercise it.
