    What else are you all into?

    I love ballet - specifically going to the ballet. I love learning about it, reading reviews, and talking to my best friend about it. My dream is to have an apartment in NYC and to be able to go to the ballet almost every night. I have so much admiration for these dancers who dedicate their...

    Communication with David Klass?

    Glad to hear things worked out with DK and you, @The Stig. They are a good group of people. I am not sure your specific design, etc. but I feel they will take good care of you. However, that is a pretty good amount to be higher than IDJ. Makes me think one of them quoted something very...

    Communication with David Klass?

    The design of the setting is very basic. Something that looks like the link below that will fit a 1.93 carat cushion center stone in Platinum with diamonds also on the sides of the Polo. I.D.J. quoted me around 1.5k but then increased it to approx. 2k for PS quality. David Klass quoted me 2.75k...

    #JOTW 2.22ct Colombian emerald & diamond ring (art deco inspired)

    Finally, my beautiful Colombian emerald and diamond ring from Yvonne Raley is on my finger! :dance: :love: This ring was a long and intensive project for me. It took almost exactly 6 months after choosing the center stone to receiving the finished ring on my finger. This has been the longest...

    Help with Cadd Reviews for custom ring

    I am working with my local jeweler to make ring that blends a few styles (Sholdt Vashon Pave, Erika Winters Jin, and Caleb Meyers Ring). This is my first ring using CADD for design and am out of my depth. I've scoured PS for info. Married 16 years. Lost my first e-ring in graduate school (family...

    Review of The Gem Trader, via eBay

    For me, one of the most useful functions of PS has been the availability of many, many reviews of all kinds of vendors/lapidaries/appraisers/etc., positive, negative and neutral. In that vein, I'd like to write up my own experience with a vendor to possibly help anybody else doing research later...

    Diamond Upgrade: My Personal Story

    Custom jewelry, especially engagement rings, are an incredibly personal endeavor. It requires a commitment of varied resources – monetary, time, and partnership – and when done right, your custom piece becomes an extension of you, representative of the inner-workings of your personality that...

    Found the setting for my e-ring...now what?

    Gypsy - Incredibly helpful, thank you. It was actually one of your posts that really struck a chord with me...about how we're buying art and even though every single jewelry shop around town will try and convince you they're perfectly capable of doing custom work, we shouldn't just be trusting...

    Leon Mege: IS images are BS?

    Leon Mege: IS images are BS?

    This. If you have great stones and can give your customers proof, why wouldn't you do so? Seems to me that if you have great stones then you have nothing to hide. Frankly, I am suspicious of jewelers who refuse to use technology that can be utilized so easily to back up their claims.

    Specifications for vendors to remain on recommended list

    The new title would be "List of vendors for reference." How does this look? It really makes me feel less responsible for what's on the list. I don't know about anyone else though.

    Winding up 2014....Wishing for 2015

    I'll play! I bought more than I thought in 2014. Actually, when I looked back at receipts some of these were from 2013. :p I didn't set any stones in 2014, though there were jewelry projects. Purchased in 2014 (all grouped to make it easy): 0.27 carat honey-colored opal (5.31 x 5.27 mm...

    OK, I found this post of Gypsy's, which may or may not be applicable to you. Were you thinking of buying a "stock" setting from the available inventory at a B&M, or having a setting custom-made for your diamond? The post below is about the pitfalls of choosing a vendor for a custom-made ring...

    Vintage E-ring Setting advice

    This thread is upsetting in that a jewelry store that has been around for 80 years and has positive reviews and feedback should know what they are selling; whether a setting is a repro or original. I would love to find an original art deco setting, but I would not know how to tell the...
