    Thank you so much! :love:

    Thank you! :D I’m sorry you had a similar experience because I completely understand how frustrating it can be when it doesn’t turn out as planned. I’m lucky that DK took care of it no problem and it sounds like you were just as lucky. How great is that? :dance: Have you shared the project yet? I wanna see pics, :love:

    Thank you so much! DK was fantastic to work with (as usual) and was more than ready to help me fix it. Yay me! :mrgreen2: Now, it’s perfect and has the delicious side effect of finger coverage galore. :love:

    Thank you! This one was a struggle to figure out but it turned out pretty great imo. I’m glad you like it. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you so much! What a great compliment. :love: That straight up pink color took me a long time to find but it was definitely worth the wait. It’s a bright, happy, cotton candy pink...and I love it! :dance: I’m very happy with how the halo turned out. I agree that it changes the shape to something a little softer. It’s really beautiful to wear. :D

    Thank you! It was definitely a struggle to figure out how to set it, especially since emerald cuts aren’t exactly my go to. I really wanted the rose gold for the center stone and this seemed like a good time to try out a mixed metal ring. I think it all worked out beautifully. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you! :love:

    Thank you. It look a lot of searching (and a couple purchases / returns) to find a bright pink without the red tones. It was exactly the pink I’d been looking for. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you. It’s my first two tone ring but it definitely won’t be my last. :cool2:

    Oh man, nobody flips rings as fast as PSers. People in the real world would think we’re crazy. Well, maybe we are...but in the best ways possible. :lol: Thank you for the compliments on my new ring. I loved D&T’s former ring but wanted to change a couple things to make it my own. I must love it because I’ve been wearing it non stop. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you so much! :kiss2: PINKalicious....why does that feel like a song? If it isn’t, it totally should be. :lol:

    Girlllllll I am obsessed with this one. If you ever decide to part ways, I’ll be stalking pre-loved like nobody’s business

    The new ring is utter perfection in that pink color though!!!

    The stems were weird. Definitely not my style. I’m really grateful for David Klass and his team. They are wonderful! :kiss2: He went above and beyond to make sure I was happy...and I definitely am. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you! (And will do...that one has quite a few fans. :lol-2:).

    Thank you so much! It really is huge on my finger...and I’m totally ok with that. :cool2:

    Thank you! :love:

    I’m glad to hear that you love the setting...especially as an emerald cut lover. That means I did something right. :D

    Thank you. It’s one of those gems that sat in my favorites list for a long time too. But as soon as I saw it in person, I knew I needed to set it ASAP! :kiss2:

    Sorry for taking so long to write back to everyone. I’m slowly working my way through all the comments. Thank you all so much! :kiss2::love:

    Thank you. You are what my wonderful husband would call an enabler. :lol: But I agree with you...they are all different colors. Similar but definitely not the same....and I’m always looking for new pinks to add to my collection. :twisted2:

    My mint garnet ring actually came from Gilded Lane (@athenaworth ). Here’s my thread on it, in case your interested.
    https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/merelani-mint-garnet-ring.241740/

    Thank you! :D

    Thank you! I know you love a good mahenge. :P2 It seems like quite a few of us liked this emerald cut spinel. I’m glad we get to keep it in the PS family now. This ring was definitely outside my comfort zone and I worried quite frequently that it was “too much” but all the little elements all work together perfectly imo.

    Thank you! I’m pretty excited about it! :dance:

    Thank you, Suz! Cue to music...”I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it....” :lol:

    I’m very, very grateful to have slender fingers. I’m not as small as some of the PSers I’ve seen, but my size 4.75ish finger is small enough that I get excellent finger coverage from most of my rings. Plus, I have a thing for halos so that certainly bumps up the finger coverage (zero complaints here). :mrgreen2:

    Thank you. Cherry Bomb is definitely a popular ring around here. It’s good to know that if I ever need to sell, I’m pretty likely to find a buyer ASAP. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you! *Happy Dance* :dance:

    Thank you!! :love:

    I totally agree! Thank you! :wavey:

    Thank you! I’ve been wearing it every day since it came home. I love it!!! :kiss2:
