Re: My ruby has been lost/stolen? - steps to take?

I am so glad to read you have your gem back safe and sound. So frustrating that the deposit is this difficult to get back, but I'm glad you're persevering through the negotiations. I feel for this disillusionment experience and I am also glad you've shared it. I think it encourages everyone who gets...

Re: Big Gene violet sapphire, in Elle W/DK setting

I'm so late to this thread, I've been swooning over this ring on Instagram. This is one of my all time favorites! The design and that pear diamond, combined with the sapphire. It just gives me beauty goosebumps. I love your collection NKOTB.

Re: Deposit for custom made ring by Sally (Heart of Water)

I have paid a deposit to Sally in many cases, also a gem hunt and I trust her fully. She is also tireless in looking for the perfect gem that you will love. I think about half of my jewelry collection is designed by her through the past ten years.

Re: My ruby has been lost/stolen? - steps to take?

I'm so sorry that your love for gems and jewelry has taken a hit from this vendor's abysmal manipulations, during a hard year when that love could have brought much needed strength. As an artist in another genre, my heart warms at your compassion and understanding of the many challenges that artists...

Thanks, it's 22 x 7 mm, so yes, it will be a challenge to set. I hope I don't have to go custom.

Re: Pretend you have 80-100k to spend...

Maybe this one? :D Green does not leave me alone right now. 5.1 carat Russian Ural demantoid, encircled by a single row of six white and six fancy colored old cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 1.80 ct. Would take that vivid green diamond any day.
