Re: Birthday Studs - RBs set inverted...

Yes, would definitely consider rose cut or single cut diamonds - maybe in a milgrain bezel? Not sure whom to go to for those, though. I can be a little OCD as well, but wanted to have something that would tie us together (I'm sentimental like that). Another idea would be to differ the settings (1 pa...

Re: my 5.318ct H VS2 ideal-cut diamond

Stunning! Looks amazing, the light just dances all around it. Yay Perry, he's such a great guy.

Names? Hmmm... the "Phoenix?"
after all the Hope diamond was named after a banker who bought it, Henry Philip Hope.

or.. the "Star of Singapore" :wink2:

What setting for a Lucida?

I am considering getting a Tiffany Lucida. It would be over 3.5 ct, but likely in a lower color (H or I). I'm considering 3 of the settings it comes in. http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/Tiffany%20Lucida%20Comparisons.jpg I'm leaning towards the halo, but DH really likes the original setting. W...

Re: 7ct asscher

Phoenix - I definitely think you need to see the stone in person, if somehow you can arrange it. I did see an Asscher here - about 7 cts by the way - and it looked great on the finger. I do love the shape.
