    Pixley are you out there?

    Hiya, :wavey: Sorry I missed this! Have been off PS for a bit since the new format. Your stone is glorious! I think it would look beautiful with a french cut eternity band. I still love my set very much and think the two rings suit one another. I tried my solitaire next to other wedding bands...

    #TBT My E-Ring Dream Come True: Leon Mege and AVC

    It's glorious, Charmy! A complete confection of a ring. Perfect curves, perfect prongs and an AMAZING stone! I also love how the "O" part (finger bezel?) is suspended below the split shank; so elegant, ladylike and original. If it were a movie star, it would be Grace Kelly. So happy to see...

    3 Ct Cushion Cut Diamond - with Pictures and GIA! Help!?!?!

    Re: 3 Ct Cushion Cut Diamond - with Pictures and GIA! Help!? Wallawalla, I would give her a chance to see the stone before you go to the trouble of exchanging it for the vendor's stone. I rarely see people downsizing their diamonds around here. I'm sure it happens, but nothing comes to mind...

    Custom Engagement Ring: Hand Carved vs. CAD?

    Your design and your sketches are lovely, Pauleroni! Neil's given you a fantastic tip sheet (see above) to consider if you decide to go with your local jeweler. If you're open to going with an on-line vendor, I would suggest taking a look at Brian Gavin Diamonds' website. Here's a link to...

    Custom Engagement Ring: Hand Carved vs. CAD?

    Hi pauleroni, Have you had a chance to look at each jeweler''s body of work? Often they''ll have photo books to showcase their custom work. In my experience - no jeweler ever ever says they can''t do something, but if you don''t see examples of the kind of details you are looking for in their...

    Which platinum band would you get? Help.

    Ah, I see - that's different. 1.7 - 1.8 does sound like a good depth for a ring and I would agree with Shimmer that a "comfort fit" band is worth it! I wish mine were comfort fit. There's an immediate, noticeable difference.

    Which platinum band would you get? Help.

    I would go with the 2 mm for an every day wedding band. It's plenty sleek looking, but will have a little more substance and strength. 1.1 sounds a little scary, not to mention uncomfortable. Are you near a place that you can try on different wedding bands of varying thicknesses? I did this...

    Head for cushion cut

    Ditto the others' sage advice. An experienced benchman can create a custom setting that will securely hold your cushion. Stock settings don't always fit all stones - especially "in between" carat weights, so they have to order up or down a size, and try to work that around your stone. I...

    Cushion Experts: Helpity Help Help!!!

    Your ring is going to be spectacular. The stone is beautiful, and while it may not be an AV firecracker, it has a unique and beautiful charm all on its own and lovely, elegant facets. So happy to hear that you passed on the D/IF. That E/VS2 in a Leon setting is going to be heavenly.
