    Can anyone recommend a custom cutter for a unique shape?

    I have my heart set on an elongated hexagon diamond, and finding the right stone has been a challenge. Thinking I will need to start looking into custom. Bigger sites like Whiteflash can't accommodate shapes like this. Any recommendations? Thank you!

    Help me pick a setting

    Happy Friday, PSers. I am in the process of creating a RHR with a 6.4mm +/- center diamond and have narrowed it down to these options. I am leaning toward 121999 since I generally prefer thinner bands, but I'm not in love with the diamonds down the sides of the band. My jeweler is able to...

    Sizing a diamond ring

    Hey guys, I found the ring that I love but they have it in size 6.5. My ring size is 5.25. It’s a split shank. Is it safe to have the ring resized to my finger size? Is it dangerous for the diamonds to be loose in the future? Thanks

    So I walked into a pawnshop and found a 1.26

    It was so beautiful and eye-clean. Plenty of fire. They would give it to me for 1500 out the door. Loupe found a nasty feather or two reaching the table. Ugh. It's so pretty...and cheap...; 6.8mm...and that feather. Would you be tempted too?
