Good experience? Bad?

His photos are "glamour shots" which means that they show the stones in the best possible light, but he states that they aren't photoshopped, and I believe him. He uses a professional photographer to show the stones in the best light. I had him send me some IRL shots of the aquamarine stone I bought from him and they were not very good (the photos), so I understand why he has them professionally photographed - lol. He warned me that he's not very good with photos.
I do need to state that I have become somewhat of a "friend" of the owner over time, so I wanted to disclose that. I bought my beautiful aquamarines from him and I couldn't be more pleased.

I fell in love with a cuprian of his, asked him a question. He promptly responded saying he would provide additional photos, but despite several followup emails, he never did. I guess I attribute it to his new business that you mentioned Colorluvr

I'm definitely setting the big one in a pendant to match my ring (someday - sigh) but I'm not sure what I'm doing with the oval. I'd thought about a RHR (I probably wouldn't wear the EC on my right hand because I'm right handed and have a tendency to bang that hand) but I haven't decided.
I'm sorry that he hasn't answered you..... I can try to contact him and see if he has any more that are similar to mine. I've been pretty busy myself moving across the country, so I haven't been in touch with him lately - I do know that all of his auctions are now on his UK site and the US ebay site only has BIN stones.
