Re: 3-stone ring Girls - are you out there?

I've had my ring for over two years now, and am just getting around to posting pictures. Better late than never, I suppose!! I apologize for the iPhone quality hand shot, but we lost our camera and haven't replaced it yet, so that and the glam shot are all I have. The stats are: .83ct H S1 ACA cente...

Re: Bling fest! My two new engagement rings and bands

Laila! I remember your quest to make your original engagement ring *right* for you, and I felt for what you were going through. I am so happy that you finally found a ring (...well two rings) that you love! :appl: They are both gorgeous BTW.

Re: Do we have any PERFUME LOVERS on PS?

You're right about eBay missy, but I have found a couple of reputable sellers on there that I trust. There are definitely other avenues to get samples especially if you don't mind decants.

Re: what brand of coffee do you drink at home/office?

I usually buy whatever blend of whole beans that catch my eye at Whole Foods, but if I don't have the time to get to Whole Foods. Lately though, I have been enjoying Starbucks Veranda blend. It's from their "Blonde" line, which is supposed to be lighter than their other varieties.

Re: Need to buy an engagement ring, but overwhelmed !

Thanks for the feedback. I really wanted an AGS stone, and the guy said he could get one if I so desired, but that he trusted GIA as did most of the industry. I also don't want to get anything that's just 'very good', and if there's anything I won't compromise on, it is the cut. I also plugged the ...

Re: 2.7c cushion in rose gold milgrain bezel setting from ER

I LOVE your ring! The setting, the rose gold, the stone (especially the crown height...wow), all of it is perfection!
Re: Opinion on 3 stone CAD from BGD

Your CADs look much better than the original. The split shank (which I like) is what struck me the most. I agree with you, Enerchi, I'd raise the center stone also just to get some distinction between it and the side stones. Your new ring is going to be a beauty!!

Re: Which has more hand presence...3 stone or halo?

I am going to have to agree with the many others on this thread: a three stone seems to have more finger presence to me.
