Re: Reset with Victor Canera? What would you do?

I just wanted to pipe in and give you my experience with my VC Emilya- that style is so well-known and hyped on PS that I was expecting it to solve world peace, shoot rainbows out of its pave, and make a gourmet dinner to boot :angel: I will admit to opening the box and being a little underwhelmed a...

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. Like you, I have an office job where I'm mostly at a computer all day long, so nothing hazardous to my ring's health. I do commute using public transportation and when I have to hold onto a metal pol...

Gorgeous set, Lisa1802!

Here's my cathedral Emilya. I alternate between a plain 1.5mm band and a 2mm ruby/diamond band.

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.

Re: What to do with smoky quartz brooch?

It's a beautiful brooch -- what a gorgeous way to remember your grandmother. Are there any markings on the back? There's a hallmark that looks like a police officer-shaped badge.

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.

What to do with smoky quartz brooch?

This piece came from my grandmother (who's long been deceased). It's a brooch that doubles as a pendant, but would be incredibly heavy to wear as such. 1. Is it worth getting appraised to see if it's real? 2. Is it normal to have such a large window? I've worn it as a brooch on a wool coat for many ...

I have a quote from Victor for the matching band and am waiting to hear about his engraved one. The pave is perfection so I can only imagine what a full eternity pave band from him is like.

Re: Mom's With 2 or more under 5 - what ring do you wear?

Congratulations, Circe!

Mine are a little older than what you asked for (4 and 6), but I wore a three stone trellis and a channel set band all the time with no issues. I recently switched to a halo so not sure how durable that would've been had I owned it when the kids were younger.
