    Have You Watched The House Impeachment Hearings? If So, What Do You Think?

    @Matata If you were charged with a crime, would you allow yourself AND ‘your’ witnesses to testify knowing your attorney could present NO defense, ask NO questions, and you’d all essentially be gagged with the tattered shreds of fabric the opposing side was clinging to in order to make their...

    Have You Watched The House Impeachment Hearings? If So, What Do You Think?

    @Calliecake What exactly & specifically has been ‘compelling’ about any of the testimony? To remove ANY sitting president from office, it needs to be clear & convincing; not woven like a blanket from leftover yarn.

    Have You Watched The House Impeachment Hearings? If So, What Do You Think?

    @AGBF I said ‘illegal/impeachable’ ... IOW ‘either or’. Also, note the word ‘allegedly’ is absent from your post stating he committed extortion ... or do you have evidence of and plans to testify before Congress to what you appear to know as fact? :confused: @Maria D Not sure what makes you...

    Where to get the diamond set?!

    Thank you! But to clarify/alleviate confusion, my new (temp) setting is from Stuller, and the new diamond is an ACA. Just FYI for @rockysalamander if you go looking in my recent threads for pics/deets. ;)2 I love the Stuller setting and plan to reset it with a CD once I settle on a permanent...

    Have You Watched The House Impeachment Hearings? If So, What Do You Think?

    Is it an actual impeachment inquiry or an episode of “candid camera” being portrayed as one? It’s a sham of a process run by a sham of an elected official with no evidence nor witness testimony that I’ve seen/heard/read that there was any actual quid pro quo, bribery, or anything else “illegal”...

    Personal Freedom, personal responsibility and social control.

    I won’t flame you, but if you allow one right to be further legislated, why not your child’s drink pouch? Why not the big gulp? Why not the portion size a restaurant may serve?

    Personal Freedom, personal responsibility and social control.

    I agree with your latter bolded statement; the problem is the slippery slope created with your first bolded statement. It becomes easier and easier to legislate the ‘big gulp‘ when politicians legislate individual liberties “for the common good”. ‘Common good’ is subjective, and is sadly abused...

    Last two ring projects

    Here’s a mock-up of one I found with your sapphire. I used the ‘bezel’ of this ring, if helpful: https://www.langantiques.com/vintage-engagement-rings/art-deco-1-19-carat-diamond-platinum-engagement-ring.html

    Last two ring projects

    :wavey: @Rfisher I stumbled upon a round stone in round faux bezel that I thought I’d shared if you are still hunting for visuals. https://vonbargensjewelry.com/product/diamond-succession-ring-in-platinum/

    @Rfisher I LOVE that CvB ring with the round in a cushion outline, and have been trying to find other views of it. Do you by chance have a link to where it was posted, or more pictures of that ring? My thought on the addition of a ‘thin’ sapphire halo surrounding the center sapphire was due to...

    @Rfisher Just throwing another ‘option’ at you. I am sitting at the dealership waiting on my car with time to burn so ... :shifty:

    You’re welcome; happy to help! :wavey:

    Last two ring projects

    @Rfisher Here is something to start with; feel free to note things you like/don’t like, would want to see different, etc. This is as ‘to-scale’ as I can get with the stone sizes & design, but I can make the sapphire bezel smaller/thinner, move the prongs to the outer edge, change them up, etc...

    Thank you; and last question (for now), do you by chance have a link to the original picture of that halo?

    Do you happen to know the mm sizes of the halo diamonds? Assuming they are OECs?

    :wavey: Good morning; and no worries on commenting on my other thread ... I don’t mind at all! I just read your entire thread/journey here, and good golly what a roller coaster! So I’m clear: - round or octagonal faux bezel? - single claw prongs - how many - 4, 6? - did you want it inside the...

    Cleaning Between Diamond + Prongs

    It may depend on how ‘particular’ one is, but FWIW - unless I’m taking macro-shots of my diamond - my hair dryer does the job just fine, though it’s a high-power unit and I use the concentrator that came with it to really blow the liquid off vs. spread it out/about as described above.

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    What type/cut of stone are you thinking about (MRB, OEC, etc), what size (in mm) is it, and what sort of ‘prong’ are you thinking would hold the stone inside the faux bezel (claws, single, double, tabs, dots, etc)? I’d be happy to mock something up for you.
  19. the_mother_thing

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    I don’t recall specifically, but I’d be happy to do a quick mock up for you to visualize if you have a round bezel example you like.

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    Thank you! I use the Adobe Sketch app on my iPad Pro to draw out my ideas and mock things up - either on the fly or more detailed like the one I shared above. If I had to do that with actual paper & pencil, it’d NEVER look like that. :lol:

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    Thank you everyone for sharing more beautiful examples; I so appreciate the extra inspiration as I continue to doodle ideas in the limited spare time I have these days. Work & life has been quite busy and chaotic lately that I’m having a hard time finding time to simply enjoy my new ACA even in...

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    It is an example of of the ‘look’ I am trying to find examples of ... round diamonds in a cushion-outline ‘head’. I am not set of a bezel, non-bezel, etc. Really just trying to find different examples of those two elements.

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    Thank you so much everyone; lots of great examples posted so far.:appl: @rockysalamander I have that CvB one saved as well; it’s stunning and I love the graceful curvature of the outline. @CHRISTY-DANIELLE That’s a great faux-bezel example from SS; gorgeous! @mrs-b I love those earrings of yours!

    Looking for Examples of MRB in Cushion Bezel (true or faux)

    If you happen to currently have or previously owned, or have perhaps saved examples of MRBs set in a cushion-shaped head, can you please post pictures or a link to your thread with pictures if you have/had one? I’m looking for visual examples and potential inspiration ideas in my quest to decide...

    What mistake will you never make again?

    To never say ‘never’ :lol: I have said “I’ll never ...” so many times in life, only to be later faced with a similar yet different set of circumstances, or a change in priorities, different viewpoint or perspective, and that previous ‘never’ went right out the window. For example, I said...

    WF’s ‘A Cut Above’ Service with my not-so-typical upgrade

    Thank you so much for the kind comments @rainydaze @Skhii @KKJohnson @Dmndsr4evr11 @redwood66 @Slick1 @KristyDarling @marcy I am so glad I have a place to share her with others who appreciate our shared love of bling. Peeps IRL (in my circle) just don’t get it.
