Re: Help on making decision on 5-stone ring setting

I too like 4 prongs per stone!

How about this one from Unique Settings (similar to Stuller)? A lot of jewelry stores and online vendors can order from Unique.

Re: Whiteflash studs, 1.6 ctw, keep or go bigger now?

I just don't want you to talk yourself into something you will regret. In my experience, if you don't absolutely love a purchase from day one, you're not going to like it later. I don't understand why setting your original e-ring stone into an earring is disrespectful? If anything, won't it be a goo...

Re: Whiteflash studs, 1.6 ctw, keep or go bigger now?

I was rooting for you to get the E I1 to pair with your original e-ring stone, personally. You said in your original thread: "Today I went to my jeweler and really focused and tried on different sizes. No question about it. 1.6 ctw is NOT gonna cut it. They just did not have the presence that I...

Re: How would you react to lack of gifting?

Have you done the 5 Love Languages test? My husband and I haven't exchanged gifts in at least 5 years (since we got married), but when we took that test, gifts were our absolute lowest category. We will try to go on trips for special occasions but we don't do any gifts, not even for Christmas. I su...

He would $#*! the proverbial brick if I asked him for a 5K gift fund. VL, you know that I'm a self gifter. After all, a girl has to take care of herself. For him, it's about "disposing" of income in a way that is not practical. He doesn't buy for himself either. Well that's actually good,...

Re: How would you react to lack of gifting?

Well I personally wouldn't care. Gifts and flowers and cards were soooo important to me when I was dating, but now that I'm married I just don't really want any gifts from DH and I told him so. I'd rather he save the money! But if gifts are important *to you* which it sounds like they are, then I th...

Re: would you reconsider an engagement

Yes, I would. I don't think love is enough, IMO you need to have similar goals, values, spending/saving habits, etc. This would be a dealbreaker to me.

Re: How Long Do You Go Between Major Diamond Purchases? a ra

Now that I have the rings I love, I don't buy any other diamond jewelry. I don't really have any desire or need to and the recent price hikes are silly.

I'm much more into necklaces from Tiffany and Co. Now that I need to stop! How many necklaces does anyone really need?!

Re: New diamond concerned about h showing vanilla in certain

I had an H color diamond (AGS graded) and it had a noticeable vanilla/pinkish/tan tint to it in certain lights. I have owned a J and an I that looked much whiter. Perhaps your diamond has a brown or yellow undertone that is showing though.

Re: Next step??

They look gorgeous!

I have a 9 stone band but the diamonds are only 7 pointers each, and that provides a lot of sparkle, so I can only imagine how blingy yours will be!!

Re: Here comes more price manipulation.........

Re: James Allen PS Discount

When I bought my diamond in November from them, they told me every diamond was different and there was no set percentage off that everyone receives. Kind of annoying; I'd like it better if they extended the same discount for every diamond.

Re: Best I can get - No ASET and no Ideal-scope

Those numbers are about as safe as you can get! I do not think you would be able to see a difference between this stone and a H&A. I really don't. This diamond is cut better than probably 98% of stones out there for sale.

Re: 20 Stabbed at Pittsburgh area high school

I don't understand why we can't have metal detectors and armed guards at schools. Who cares if it's expensive? What is more important than protecting our children?! It's not a matter of expense for me. It's a matter of living in a police state. It's about what you are willing to give up for safety....
