    Decision Making Help - Oval Diamond

    interesting because the Elyque oval by August Vintage are typically like 66+ depth and those have no bow tie. My oval now is 67 and has very minimal bow tie too but it isn’t AV (I actually don’t like those for some reason). My understanding was deeper gives less bow tie but also less spread.

    Jeweler set my diamond too high?

    How sure are you that it is custom other than what the jeweler says? Did they show you CADs? It is such a common setting (6 prong) solitaire that I am surprised a local jeweler would do much more then order a stock setting in the right size for the stone.

    Your advice on lost diamond: THIS replacement my insurer is offering or cash payout

    Don’t be shocked if they drop you after this. Expensive ring lost twice.. they likely won’t risk a third time. As for the 18k... exactly what sledge said. You can insure it for whatever you want but they only need to pay out what it actually cost to replace with like quality. Most jewelers will...

    New Stuller Setting

    you’d have to ask the vendor you are buying it from. A consumer can’t just order stuller settings themselves, you must be a Jewelry store. If the jewelry store accepts returns, that’s up to them,

    Different vendors selling the same stone?

    I mean, maybe I’m wrong but I just assumed if it happens with diamonds, it would happen with colored stones too. Probably not as frequent but likely

    Different vendors selling the same stone?

    Virtual inventory. Many sellers have access to the same inventory and when they sell it, they also buy it from the vendor. So they sell it and get a profit from the sale. Occasionally you’ll hear of somebody buying a store to be told shortly after that it isn’t available and that’s because...

    I would consider broadening your search to include vs1 and vs2. Once a stone is eye clean, you are not gaining much or anything by getting higher clarity

    Update.. Oct 5th: BE emails me to ask for a time when they can call me to discuss my review (which I had sent to BBB). I respond that I will only discuss the matter in writing so they may email me any comments they have. Oct 7 - still no reply. I’m guessing they don’t want their comments in...

    Oval Bow Tie Help

    Well cut round diamonds often go dark in the sun. The darkness is all over because well round cut diamonds reflect light all over. Ovals reflect light the best in the middle and sometimes the very tips of the oval so when you go in the sun, those are the areas most likely to look dark. Look for...

    My Grandmother’s pearls

    I don’t think real pearls peel. Natural pearls, as they age, may turn yellower, duller and crack but I don’t think they peel

    Stuller rose gold

    They are 14k rose and are marked as 14k. I compared them to an 18k I have from Tiffany and they are even a little yellower than those pieces

    Stuller rose gold

    yeah, the tips of the posts are rose and the closer your get to the diamond, the yellower it gets. Makes me think it was heating or a chemical or something. If it was the opposite (the basket being pink and the post being yellow), I could live with it. I’m beginning to think I was never meant to...

    Stuller rose gold

    Does anyone have any rose gold pieces in Stuller settings? Do you find their rose gold is particularly yellow or does it match nicely to other rose gold pieces you have? context: I just received some rose gold earrings and the setting appears yellow to me. Like a deeper brassy yellow but I do...

    Help: Advice needed. Brian Gavin Diamonds holding onto Refund

    On the same note, if the damage is so little that Wink didn’t notice it, whose to say it wasn’t damaged before it ever got to the OP when she first bought it? It went from BG to OP to HPD to OP to BG to AGS and the damage might have happened at any of those points, especially if it never got...

    There are 4 sides to the story and we will never know what to believe.

    How does a crown facet get damaged?

    I wonder how subjective it all is really. Is everything measured by lasers and calculated out to give an answer? Or does a gemologist look through a microscope and give their opinion of the polish grade? What if them gemologist next to them disagrees?

    Anyone have a combination ultrasonic-steamer machine?

    just lay a small cloth in the bottom. Or trim some of that grippy shelf liner to size. You can also get small silicone baskets meant for your dishwasher that would fit too. To empty the US part I just use a hand towel (like the size for drying dishes) and soak up the extra. The steamer I run...

    Possible Vintage Tiffany 18k Green enamel and sapphire Gold ring??

    I’d say it is more like to have been inspired by Tiffany if there is even any connection at all. A lot of jewelry companies try to make things similar to Tiffany and other iconic brands.
