Re: Do friends or family ask to try on your e-ring?

Yes, people have asked to try on my e-ring and other rings and I let them.

Sometimes my twin sister will borrow my stuff for a week or a special event. Once I lent her my e-ring all day and she was freaked out b/c it wasn't insured specifically (though it was under my umbrella policy).

Re: Meeting with Victor C today... and SingleStone... OMG

I know Miss Got Rocks in real life and believe me when I tell you that she is the fountain of wisdom in all things- jewelry and life. I've told her before I wish I could hire her as my life mentor. Anyway, congratulations on making a decision! Can't wait to see- what kind of timeline did he give you...

Making a ring using my own 24kt gold?

I have several small 24kt gold bars that are 10g each. Would that typically be enough to make a thin ring (say 1.5 or 2mm) in a size 3.75 or 4? I know Raven's Refuge allows customers to supply their own gold- are there any other vendors who do the same? Onbviously the gold would have to be alloyed w...

Re: Victor Canera cathedral Emilya is here!

Hi LoganSapphire :wavey: I wondered what you did with your three stone ring after you re-set this stone? IIRC, you had a 3-stone with a smaller center, then replaced it with the 1.25 (the VC is gorgeous!), then had the 1.25 halo'd. So what became of the 3 stone? It's like an evolving story, and I w...

Re: Calling Victor Canera Halo owners! Still love and wear

My opinion probably doesn't mean much since I've only had my ring since August, but so far, so good.

I do commute using public transportation and when I have to hold onto a metal pol...

Re: To halo or not to halo?

I've had, or currently have, a solitaire, a three stone, a five stone, and a halo. My five stone center has a 5.3mm spread, so that may be the most similar to your stone. To be fair, the center in the three stone is smaller than my halo, though not by much. My husband thinks the three stone has the ...

Re: Car seat placement

No one rides in the middle seat in our cars. Everyone is right by a door. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Btw, my son RFd for a long time (at least until he was 43"), which may or may not have looked ridiculous ;) but he fit and could've kept going size-wise.

Re: Victor Canera cathedral Emilya is here!

Thanks, ladies! I love the slope of the cathedral; I had a three stone trellis before and its slope was like child's play compared to the Emilya's.

Re: Reset ideas for 1 ct round diamond?

I recently got an Emilya for a stone that's not too much bigger than yours (1.35). I've been wearing it solo while I try to figure out what to do about a band. The only person who asked if I was engaged worked in a jewelry store. It does look very engagement-y, but I seem to like the look of it alone.

I am impressed by how sharp all the facet junctions are, since it is an older piece that has been used and quartz isn't the hardest stuff around. That's why I'm wondering if it's fake.
