    Went to Shreve Crump and Low in Boston and they....

    ...tested my diamonds to see if they were real. They offered to clean my ring and I thought "what the heck? May as well." But then they took it behind the counter and they sort of turned away a trifle, but...yeah. Basically in front of me, they tested my diamonds to see if they were fake...

    Alex T is coming to NY & Boston!

    @missy and @mrs-b ! This may not be something we can co-ordinate & actually pull off, but I would LOVE to pop over for a few days to say hi. Husband has given me the green light (but no green light to buy anything sparkly, though we can window shop, right?!) but I am pretty tied to school...

    USAA / stolen ring update

    Just wanted to update on here I recently had posted about my rings being stolen and then getting advice about recreating my ring or going with my original setting from my jeweler. I searched previously on Pricescope for threads regarding jewelry claims with USAA and found only a few but wanted...

    2.41 J SI1 ACA from Whiteflash. Upgrade round 2

    Congrats on your new stone, and finding the one that makes you happy. It looks gorgeous and I am very happy for you. In regards to the prongs, I would want the 6 prongs. Not only is it more secure, but IMO it also helps pronounce the round shape. Sometimes 4 prongs can give it a more...

    Baby ACA? Or should I save up for bigger?

    Your ring is beautiful!! I was looking at the Ritani solitaire setting at $245 as the one I really want is HPD’s Boston classic, but that’s nearly $2k so I’ll wait until I’m at 1ct+. That’s a much better idea using a peg head, I didn’t even think of it! Hope this upgrade train doesn’t get too...

    @IDtoTX - congratulations on your gorgeous ring! Is the setting a CBI design? I love it! And @Tekate - when do you go to Texas? Will you be in the Boston area before you leave? Would love to catch up again before you go! ox

    Hi PS'ers:) I have this CBI coming to me tomorrow: https://www.hpdiamonds.com/en-us/diamonddetail/HPD10050 I am going to see the diamond to make sure I am ok with the K color, and then send it back to be set. I want a simple, sturday solitaire that I can wear daily. HPD is offering a free...

    Well, another dig on the bank account. The Gesmer ring scheduled to land Tuesday morning in Boston. Good lord, what have I done? My kitchen renovation has just been delayed a year :errrr:

    Hi Lightbright, that's our Boston Classic, actually. It is a spin-off of the New York. The Boston has a smaller donut than the New York. And a shank that tapers from 2.5mm in the back to 1.9mm in the front. The back of the shank is also a comfort fit, so the knife edge is only at the top so the...

    Baby ACA? Or should I save up for bigger?

    It wouldn’t be competitive. It would be a mutual admiration society. I’ll probably switch to the NY solitaire when I get to where I’m going.

    I have questions about the ring that I am currently doing monthly payment.

    You're very welcome, and I am glad you made the adjustments I think you will be happy with the result and I know the stone will be more secure. Shortly after proposing, my (now) wife took a girl's trip to Boston. While there, she damaged a prong and didn't notice until later that night in the...

    #JOTW My new 2.12 K SI1 CBI

    Hello PS land! I just wanted to show off my new CBI! First up: stats: K color SI1 (100% eyeclean) 2.12 ct As most you know, I am not color sensitive and J/K/L is probably my sweet spot. I don't like super white diamonds- they remind me of CZ's. So when I saw this stone, it had everything I was...

    @redwood66 - If ever you're in the Boston area and would like to grab a coffee, or a little jewelry 'show and tell', feel free to drop me a line! But please be sure to bring that GORGEOUS DKJ rose gold ring that was made with your recycled wedding ring diamonds; I love that ring!

    Went to Shreve Crump and Low in Boston and they....

    Was this in the Chestnut Hill Location? They get a lot of "lookers" there and I am sure they were doing it to protect themselves. It should be noted that the Shreve of today is not the same coproration that it was. The name was sold. My brother purchased his wife's engagement ring at the...

    That would never work. I swear, you wouldn't get your rings BACK! I don't thnk I could be trusted around that emerald heart!! :kiss2: (...but if ever you're in the Boston area, let's arrange a g-2-g!)

    I'm going to tag @mrs-b as she lives outside Boston and she might know someone, although most of her pieces are modern but she is very knowledgeable about jewelry.

    Who wants to see my haul from today?

    I currently live in Chicago, IL although I lived in Oahu, Hawaii and Dublin, Ireland before that. I also had stints in London, Boston MA, NH, and western MA before that. We've moved around quite a bit. I've been to CT a few times. The user name itself comes from a long time favorite song.

    Techie - wondering what your resolution was. Did you keep or return the item? Did the vendor offer any repair assistance?

    Thank you so much, @junebug17! I can't wait to see it! @Winterinaustralia - we lived in NY for 13 years before we relocated to Boston, and I have to say, I think NYC is more spectacular for all the major holidays, for its sheer size, if nothing else. Boston, tho, is also very beautiful - in a...

    How do I get this setting?

    Thank you mrs-b and D&T for the your replies and especially mrs-b for the very extensive answer. I guess I was not prepared for how difficult this process might be, but once you explained the dimensions it makes sense of course. And yes, I am looking for the sleek, industrious look. No frills...

    Reshanking and repairing a crack on a vintage piece...help!

    Agree. And the chipped stones should have been mentioned in the listing, or at least on the appraisal on the website if not on the listing . I wouldn’t put the money in it unless you adore it. And cracks, abraded girdles, etc. are not unusual in antique pieces, but they should be disclosed. If...

    FWIW, a link to the thread when I designed my wife's e-ring: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/dk-bgd-custom-setting-the-home-stretch.240843 Looks like I started getting quotes around 5/15/18 (page 1, post #1). Finished pics & videos were sent to me on 6/29/18 (page 9, post #257)...
