Reputable online diamond sources

I am making my first visit to Rockytalky-- I usually post in colored stones. Hi all! ;) My sister is shopping for a diamond engagement ring and her fiance is most comfortable purchasing online. Since I am completely green regarding diamonds, can you suggest reputable online vendors where she could p...

Re: Looking for a Pink Sapphire

I forgot to add-- she is most interested in squarish cushions, likes halos more than sidestones for this particular ring, and if possible hopes to be able to pair it with a wedding band. I know that really depends on how the stone is set.....

Re: Looking for a Pink Sapphire

Sorry I haven't been on in over a day-- life was calling. I appreciate all the links everyone sent! I have talked to my sister and she said she can go as high as 15 for the entire rig-- so that jewels by grace is a wonderful option! I am looking at the links and doing my best not to be tempted mysel...

Re: Looking for a Pink Sapphire

Niel--

Thanks so much for the link. I have talked to her more and she was looking at a Morganite, if that gives you the idea of color she likes. I was steering her towards sapphires or even spinels.

Re: Looking for a Pink Sapphire

MJO-- thank you so much for the heads up. I don't think she wants a vivid one, even though I know those can be amazing. Niel-- I would say around 10 grand max for the ring and setting. I guess I shouldn't have said healthy as its easy to get a 50 g pink sapphire rink. I don't think she is concerned ...

Re: My holy grail chrysoberyl search, finally done!

I have seen the first chryso in person and it definitely is not windowed. It is a beautiful stone!!! I have a really pretty one myself and this one stood up to it really well! I was tempted to keep it myself but I am on a strict ban :boohoo:

Re: Afterbirth

I saw mine-- the midwife showed it to me which was thoughtful. I would have been much more interested in viewing it if I wasn't so wiped out from delivery. I wasn't grossed out by it but I really didn't pay any attention to it and I wish I had now. My mom had my sister at home and she placed it unde...

Re: HIMYM - The Ending

I thought the last 15-20 minutes or so of the finale were horrible. I don't have a problem with Ted ending up with Robin. He is an incredibly milquetoast character who envisioned himself a lot more romantic/interesting than he really is, and with that in mind, I don't see him having the imagination ...

I think everyone who has not had their titres checked in the last three years is just as culpable as the villain moms in Brooklyn. Not that I would get a straight answer from posters on that one.

Have you tried Natural Calm? It is pretty sour but is in powder form so you can take as little or as much as you would like. I must be magnesium deficient because I feel a definite sense of well being half an hour after drinking it. There is a version that is straight magnesium and one that is a cal...
