Re: Diamond selected please help choosing the Ring Cushion H

Platinum is the best metal for pave. The difference is about 300 bucks. To me, it's worth it. But I'm not you.

I would send her the Anita just to make sure she likes. It you are spending a LOT of money. It should be perfect.

Re: Diamond selected please help choosing the Ring Cushion H

OK. So the most likely reason it was 4k is that it was custom. You don't have to go custom. Because it looks like they turned that design into a standard catalog item with the Michelle.

Re: Diamond selected please help choosing the Ring Cushion H

OK. I'm sorry. I don't get what you are asking.

You like the setting from BGD. You want it made with your cushion. That shouldn't be a problem at all.

So why don't you want BGD to make it for you? I'm confused.

Re: Jewelry purchase that you love and have no desire to upg

Most of the pieces I have picked out myself that I still have.

1. My halo setting for my engagement ring from Steven Kirsch.
2. My diamond clover earrings from Pearlmans.
3. My Marguerite pendant from BGD
4. My emerald stacking ring (ebay).

I love them.

Re: Cushion Spread, Need help finding and selecting one

Oh my goodness no.

I have a VS1. I can't find my inclusions with a loupe. At VVS you are going to have fun hunting for that puppy even under magnification.

I promise there is no WAY you are ever going to see that even with the best human eyesight possible.

Re: question about si1 w cloud at certain magnification

I have a VS1. I can't find anything with a 10x loupe. So when I drop my ring off at jewelers for work (polishing, sizing...) I always ask for a 40x loupe and use that to plot my inclusions for the receipt/log. Beyond that, there is no reason to ever look at your diamond at high magnification. Ignora...

Re: Cushion Spread, Need help finding and selecting one

Thanks Gypsy, I saw the ASET on the first one and it looks really nice. The more red the better right? Question, the cut grade is "very good". should i be concerned? Also, she's pretty anti fluorescence. so the second two stones probably wouldn't fly. regarding the BN signature stones, ho...

Re: question about si1 w cloud at certain magnification

Grading is done at 10x. Whether it affects the brilliance of a particular diamond would be something the gemologist at the vendor would have to tell you while looking at the diamond. If it is the grade setting inclusion (first listed on the clarity plot) then it might be something to worry about. If...

Re: resizing Costco diamond ring

They won't give you a written warranty. And their sizing will void the Costco warranty. So for me, that's not a good deal. I've never been impressed by the Shane Company for the most part their in house (own brand) settings are nothing to write home about and their prices for their quality goods (la...

Re: What do you think of this band?

Ok. So to translate:

The sizing beads will be removed.

It's a platinum pave halo setting.

Who made it? And what is it listed for?

Re: Cushion Spread, Need help finding and selecting one

OK Good information. If she's okay with it, then great. I would stick to the BN Signature line then and go up to a 1.3 carat or so diamond in budget.
