Hi I am the lucky owner of the ring Valeria posted photos of . It was made in platinum by Garry Holloway (Precious Metals in Melbourne Australia) and the diamond was from MDX. I needed a very sturdy ring with low set diamond, as it is rarely off my hand, but I wanted the stone to be the main feature...

Hi Matatora
There may be a risk of damaging mechanical mechanisms (husband was advised not to play golf or tennis with his) and it may risk leakage internally if not a diving watch. For such expensive purchases IMO not worth the chance.

Hi Jade That EC looks heavenly. I adore east west settings. As a fan of simple design to showcase a stone, I love your current setting too, so enjoy it until it is reset. Congratualtions on your new house project too. Building is almost as much fun as diamonds. http://www.pricescope.com/idealbb/imag...
