Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

I think the new cads look 100% better! I also agree with others on the N/S marquise. I think that the actual ring will be much more delicate than the cads are showing it, but good for you for standing up for what you want. With a purchase of this magnitude, I think no one should have to settle! Tha...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Thanks for replying Gypsy! Think I'm going to go ahead & get a cad incorporating the marquise done, see what it looks like & then make a decision! How do you feel about the new CADs? Any reservations?

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

I would go with the N/S marquise...but I like cleaner/simpler designs. I'm sure GOG can put this in a CAD for you so you can visualize it. I am wondering if the overall ring is going to be too thick between the fingers? Hey SlG, the n/s marquise definitely sounds interesting! As for the thickness, ...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Personally I like the tulip shape (I know Verragio calls it a crown, but GOG's rendition looks a lot more tulip-y to me!). I'd probably, were it for me, go with the existing design *or* Gypsy's suggestion of a bezeled marquise. I suspect the marquise would look more unique, ornate and cool than a r...

Guys! I return, had to go away for a few days with a family engagement, sorry for the lack of replies! However I have returned today, and in my inbox are the new CADs! I'm really happy, I think they look really nice. Any opinions? The only thing I am thinking of changing is the bezel setting for the...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Brilliant. I totally agree. You need that altered. Hey, I said this at the very top. Can I be brilliant too? LOL ;)) I think once they tweak this, it will look way less bulky. Laila!

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Punto - I'm from the UK too and there are places that you can get CADs and settings made. I've used the same people for years to make settings for me. If you search under my name for Chamelon diamond, they made that setting and also for my brownish/yellow Asscher - so you can see first hand their w...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

From what I have seen on PS, the CAD is usually approved before the wax mould is made. This is an important ring so being a bit more picky is absolutely acceptable. Going the route of custom entitles you to make the ring exactly the way you want. See ... my hubby is not the type to nit pick with ve...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

I think I would be honest and tell them that you feel rushed. You want your changes acknowledged and made - honestly, everytime someone told me it will be ok and to trust them ... it never turned out that way. I am wondering if a simple round shape around the surprise diamond would be nicer and mor...

lol I actually didn't know it was meant to represent a crown! I saw the Verragio setting when in NYC earlier this year, and it actually looks quite nice in real life. I'm not too sure what I'd change it to? I like the surprise diamond being set there, and wouldnt know what other shape to set it in! ...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Thanks for that feedback LovingDiamonds, Charmypoo and Gypsy, I completely agree. Being honest, from the CAD through to the Wax pictures, I kept emailing 'it looks so bulky' compared to the original and kept getting told that it's the same! So I ended up thinking it was just my eyes and called in a ...

Re: First CADs are in...opinions please! :)

Another image! Looks a lot larger from the side compared to the original verragio, I assume that's down to the fact that it's in wax?

Single claw prongs do look pretty, shall search the forums for some examples to send across :D

Thanks for all the feedback guys.
