Re: Now I really did it :((

Hi All, Going to be posting under a different name from now on. I am retiring my Prosumer name. I am going do some social media posts for some vendors, annoymously. It's not a full time gig or anything close, so I am still doing very serious job hunting. But it was worth the opportunity to go over t...

Re: Anyone do voice work?

a-s-80, az-stone and sarah thank you, that was very helpful!

I am having trouble with PS so can't see past posts to see all your names. But I have sent this thread to my husband (he is on PS rarely under MisterGypsy).

Re: Ebay engagement ring??

Hi, I've been buying on eBay for nearly 12 years and I mostly buy jewellery. My tip is to stick with established business sellers. Many of these also have a bricks and mortar store and use eBay to expand their clientele. Buying from a private buyer can be fraught with trouble. You generally won't g...

Re: Not sure where to start with Diamond Pendant Necklace

http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/img_1837_1.JPG This is my pendant. Set in platinum milligrain. The stone is a 1.0 carat mrb. Does not move on my neck and I am not super slim, just average. I happen to like the fixed pendant and wear it daily. That sucker is GORGEOUS. And the double bezel set...

Re: Ebay engagement ring??

I'm sorry, this post makes me just laugh. Somewhat hysterically. YES. You could write a book as thick as the bible with things to look out for. Buying an engagement ring is already a hard process. You want to take the Double Black Diamond route. The question is WHY? WHY do you want to shop on ebay? ...

Re: Have to ask you guys Asscher vs OEC

In your case? You had a GLORIOUS step cut.

If you aren't head over heels, definitely try an OEC.

Re: Not sure where to start with Diamond Pendant Necklace

Agree with Pinto Bean. I am a size 16 and small delicate pieces are easily overwhelmed. I would make sure you try on a number of pieces before spending any money. You can do it pretty easily. Just go to Tiffany. Or any place that has a number of solitaire pendants, and maybe some halo ones and go fr...

Re: What type of gifts do you like to receive?

I rarely get presents, except from my husband, unless cash or gift cards. Don't get me wrong, I love giftcards and cash, and appreciate them very much. But it's just fun to have the tactile experience of actually opening gifts and since I rarely get them, I think it is more fun. So this is a list of...

Re: 3 stone ring: oval with round sides??

Depends on the stones and the cutting. If you do OEC sides, what is the cut on the round gemstone in the center? If you do an oval gemstone... is it a poor native cut with a window?

Re: 3 stone ring: oval with round sides??

What size are the stones? Dimensions not weight.

Do you have the center already?


And yes, I think ovals with round sidestones look nice, provided the proportions work.

Re: Opinions please! To match or not to match?

I would also go for a plain shank. Personally, BGD has some of my favorite all time solitaires. It's just depends on your style.

I like diamonds for the wedding band to pair with it. Classic look, IMO.

Re: Help me evaluate a cushion ASET

Then all three should be fine, in terms of spread (the F is 6.22x6.67), color and clarity. There's nothing I'd worry about with any of them. It's just a matter of relative performance. Yes, the original stone I posted (the H Vs2) is an A in performance. Definitely. Unless someone asks me to, or forc...

Re: Help me evaluate a cushion ASET

Ask for an ASET if you like any of these (or ask GOG or other vendor if they can get the stone in for you, they often can, and I personally wouldn't buy a stone from a drop shipper if I had another option, even if it meant paying a bit more). https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/cushion-cut/1.8...

Re: Help me evaluate a cushion ASET

It's square, but yes at the edge of truly square. But cushions aren't princesses. They aren't supposed to be square. So there is no l/w ration "ideal". And frankly slightly elongated looks better on most fingers when set N/S. Table is fine, absolutely fine. What we really worry about with ...

Re: Help me evaluate a cushion ASET

To met is a pass. Why is that? Too much light leakage? The dispersion of colours seems okay to me, just wish there was more red and less green.. A number of reasons. Yes, it does have some leakage.
