Re: What is Mothers Day like for you?

MayK- I didn't know you were adopted; so was I (and so was one of my kids). :wavey: I'm actually very close to finding my birth family (they think they've identified them, but we're awaiting DNA results from both sides).

Re: Needing some PS opinions...on which way to go

I have a graduated 5 stone OEC and the center is 5.5mm, so smaller than you're considering. It's blingy (I don't mind!) but what helps keep the bling factor from going overboard is that I feel like I have a pretty sharp graduation in size.

Re: What is Mothers Day like for you?

Mine was nothing particularly special. but we're low-key about such holidays in my house. There was nothing in particular that I wanted to do. My 5 year old woke up at 6, but my husband fended him off until around 8 to let me sleep in. Unfortunately, he underestimated the 7 year old, whom he forgot ...

Re: At this moment..how many carats of diamond are you sport

Zero (just wearing a plain Trinity ring).

When I leave the house, I usually have erring, wedding ring, RHR, and studs. Sometimes a diamond pendant, but usually not. That would be 4.61ct total.

Wow, I've never thought about carrying keys separately from a bag. Good idea. I'm not into purses and I try to carry the smallest, non-leather one I can get away with.

Re: POLL: three stone OR graduated five stone and which sett

I'm going to second the suggestion of seeing if one of the old cut vendors can source you stones. I sent pictures of my center OEC to Grace and she found 4 matching stones (2 pairs ) to complete my 5 stone. It was ridiculously easy on my end!

Re: Help - Which setting for my half carat RHR?

Actually, ERD made my five stone! I haven't had any issues but it's a very simple setting. I got it when my ering was a three stone halo so that's why I chose octagonal frames as I wanted a different look than my then-ering.

Re: When sizing up--what is realistic?

Just to give you an idea of price- I recently took my 3mm gold band at tiffany to be sized up 1/2 size and they were going to charge $150. In the end, they stretched it ever so slightly and that worked.

I'm afraid I don't know how large the pave are; I just sent the stone to VC and asked for a delicate halo with no set specifications. Sorry I can't be more helpful. ETA: I looked at my appraisal. It doesn't give a breakdown for the pave in the halo vs the the shank, but it does say .43ctw for 56 sto...

Re: Victor Canera cathedral Emilya is here!

Logan, Did you request a thinner halo on your ring? I noticed yours is much more delicate, with a total of 24 melee diamonds. Most of the other smaller halos have 16-20. Even Frankie's 3CT halo only has 24 and her original was only 20. I'm having an Emilya done by Victor (probably 1.08CT) and I'm t...

Re: Spacer - where did you order?

I have two from Le Cubicule, who's in Montreal. I have a 14kt rose gold .8mm and a platinum .8mm. The only downside is that it seems shipping is higher because it's coming from Canada.

I also have a 22kt band from Raven's Refuge and I love it. They were very easy to work with.
