Re: Need your precious help for my oval halo ring.

Sounds to me the ring isn't the problem, the jeweler is.

You should not work with that jeweler again.

Re: Do you own an electric kettle? Do you use it?

Love mine. And it's glass. It's boils super fast. And its safe. No overboiling. No metal taste. No rust. No need for a burner. I use it every day. I should probably explain that for me part of it is cultural. Persians usually have a Samovar. Complete waste in our household, but at my grandparent's ...

Re: What is customary for a funeral?

It depends on how close you are and also culture I think. If its close family or friends we do flowers. If it's not, I send the family edible arrangements. Or a plant. Like an Orchid or something. I have never sent or given money for a funeral. And if its someone I'm not close to, or something I'll ...

Re: New home construction companies? Pulte, KB, Ryland etc?

I swear, I don't know how anyone buys a home. So overwhelming. I have analysis paralysis already.

I am on getting the best home inspector I can, no matter what we chose to do.

I am reading all your posts. And I appreciate them. Please keep them coming. I will share with DH too.

Re: New home construction companies? Pulte, KB, Ryland etc?

Oy. I have to say, I'm filled with anxiety now at the thought of dealing with that stuff.

It might be better just to buy an older home and rennovate things slowly.

Re: Help me find the perfect cushion diamond

I'm confused.
You say you do not want a crushed ice look. But the picture you post of a stone you like the faceting of IS a crushed ice look cushion.

It's early days yet. Granted. But I'm a research monkey. But we are looking to move to TX this year. And we have a decent (for Texas) budget for a home. A lot of the areas we are looking in have new homes construction available. And we like the thought of having a home that's newly built, with a hom...

Re: Calling me "Hon." Is there a protocol?

I was surprised Gypsy used it. Womens Lib ladies. As someone said. It's just a way of being nice. And there's nothing anti-feminist about being nice. Yes, I can see that for some it has negative connotations. But for many, like it, it's the intent that matters and most people. And most of the time ...

Re: Why does my cushion cut have shadows?

It's the cut. It's probably not well cut. I've never seen a well cut fancy stone in a Shane Co.

Cut is king. That's what determines a diamond's beauty. Not color. Not clarity.

And no, a well cut cushion wouldn't do that.
