Re: Choosing between 2 emerald cuts...

VS1 is not a sacrifice, it is totally clean. G should be fine. Emerald cuts are on the deep side so they face up small. I'd 1000 times rather have a 1.5 G VS1 than a 1.2 F VVS1! Are you talking about white gold? If so, I am going to recommend platinum. If yellow gold, then a platinum head and 18k ye...

Re: Choosing between 2 emerald cuts...

Have you posted here to get help narrowing them down? Because honestly, there are people here who are far more selective and knowledgeable than a phone sales associate. I don't think the 1.20 is going to be a good choice. I'd surely try hard to go to VS1 and get a larger stone, but seeing that cut i...

Re: Travel Jewelry Case Recommendations?

PB, I have a Wolf jewelry box or two. Check out ebay, too. Sometimes Wolf sells their sample models (new) there.

Re: Leasing Vehicles vs Buying New and Selling

Toyotas are going to have far less maintenance costs long term than Volvo. I could say ditto to many of the posts in this thread! We use Consumer Reports and only buy highly reliable cars, pay cash, and keep them several years (8+). Aside from my husband's Porsches, we have a Toyota Tundra truck, Co...

Re: Pulled the trigger. Was this a good deal?

The time to ask about the diamond is preferably before it is purchased. Is the diamond good? Yes, there are many worse! Could we have recommended better cut stones? Yes. If it were bad, we'd recommend returning, but it's not. Since you already have bought the diamond, I would definitely get the jewe...

Re: Replacing a stolen ring -Concerns about I color - Though

Just so you know, Victor's diamonds are top cut, hearts and arrows, too. His Emilya halo is absolutely gorgeous! It is also a more classic and timeless setting. I think the big decision is do you want the I color one which is largest, a smaller H VS1, or Victor's G SI1 which is in the middle in term...

I think a 1.9 ct stone is perfect! The 1.84 is great, too, but I personally would rather VS clarity. Gosh, I love Whiteflash and Victor. Victor sometimes sets outside stones and sometimes he doesn't if he is full with his own stones being set. Steven Kirsch is the other option for the setting. You n...

Re: Seeking Advice: Sydney Jeweler, Garry Holloway or Import

These are measurements to help you stay in ideal cut territory with a GIA excellent cut stone. table: 54-58 depth: 60-62.3 crown angle: 34-35.0 (up to 35.5 crown angle can sometimes work with a 40.6 pav angle) pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9 (sometimes 41.0 if the crown angle is close to 34) The James All...

Re: H vs. I for 2 ct RB, which would you pick?

I'd take the GIA I color over the other. But SI1's in stones this large are risky, so one could be more clean than the other. The color could vary as well. I honestly would go for VS2 clarity in a stone that size and go just a little smaller. It's too hard to have regrets with BN because of their tr...
