I''m guessing that the one that Brian posted is the Bombe shank with a peg head, medium height. My Solstice looks quite similar. I don''t have any pics, or I would post one. The quality of Stuller items is quite solid. Their split prong head is called the "Octet". I personally like the lines of the medium head the most, but if you''re a fan of the old school Tiffany I would recommend the low peg head. I don''t think the type of head (built in versus peg) will affect the durability of your ring. When I was putting my ring together I got to look at all of the pieces with my jeweler. Stuller''s catalog leaves something to be desired in terms of illustrative photos.Date: 1/12/2005 12:42:14 PM
What about the quality? Any comments on that?
Is it better to have the mounting on the ''Peg'' like sevens one''s picture or is it better to have it all molded together like her last picture?
The last pictures that Brian posted were nice too. What''s the name of that Stuller setting?
Anybody with real actual pictures of the one with double 4 prongs or is it called the split 4 prongs? I think I like that one better because it offers the best of both worlds, security of more prongs but also the ability to see the diamond.
We purchased a really excellent cut that has a lot of fire and brilliance to it and I want to be able to showcase the fine quality diamond that we have.
Also, should you set it med or low? I like the way that the original Tiffany & Co.''s diamond is set in their rings. Is that the most practical for everyday wear so that it doesn''t get caught in things and so that you don''t end up banging the stone around a lot?
Thanks.'');'' height=15 alt=""Insert smilie'' src="http://www.pricescope.com/idealbb/images/smilies/1.gif" width=15 border=0>
