    thumbnail.jpeg thumbnail-1.jpeg I have been wanting a 3 or 5 stone emerald stone ring for such a long time and bought this one: https://www.berricle.com/sterling-s...conia-cz-3-stone-engagement-ring-r1209-01.htm
    I have large hands, size 8 ring finger and I feel that it is a bit much for me. I do love the proportions of the ring but I am thinking of returning it. I think it is the clear color of the stones that I am not loving. Any opinions?

    I also bought this one and love it: https://www.berricle.com/sterling-silver-swarovski-zirconia-cz-7-stone-ring-r1217-01.htm

    I purchased this bar bracelet and it looks like I could pass it off as real diamonds. It is very dainty and does not flip around much. I also like the idea that I can put it on myself. I can take a pic, if anyone wants to see it.

    My husband bought me this set from Berricle a few years ago. I have never worn it out because it is huge. But soooo pretty.

    Just got these today. I can't recommend their emerald cuts enough. This is my second and I'll be getting the one with baguettes on the side too. This also looks amazing with a plain band and my 18k yellow gold tiffany metro!

    soxfan, your ring looks awesome!

    mom2dolls, I also feel that my ring is huge. I am def not used to that feeling.

    I think I am keeping it, even for a travel ring since the price was great.

    That emerald cut ring is in my cart waiting for the next 40% off sale! :lol: It looks AMAZING on you! :love:

    I think that 8mm round is retired. LOVE the setting.

    Thanks! I do wish the EC were a tad larger but it is very believable. The round sits really low so it’s very comfortable. I love both but I’m LIVING for that floral halo round. They don’t have a 5.5 tho

    I just returned a 5.5 so you might want to check their site daily.

    I've never clicked on any of the Berricle threads before today - am I reading correctly that that is a CZ?? :shock:

    If so, that looks amazing :o I would never have expected that!

    All the CZs I see are horrible dead things in cheap kids or fashion jewellery, so I am very surprised at the performance!

    OoohShiny, I was also impressed with how realistic they look and such a great price. I would not feel guilty if it does not get worn often, either.

    Bubbalah and Emmy. I don't wear Emmy but if I wanted to I could. She looks good. Look at her next to Bubbalah.

    Just ordered that giant emerald cut ring. I’ll never have a diamond that big so this is a fun option when when I want to swap out my Ering.

    Ooh, is that the 8mm / '3ct' Asscher?

    How do you find it performs?

    I'm thinking of getting that one for the good lady - she doesn't wear necklaces very often but I think I would like to stare at it from across the table if it performs well ;-) lol

    Hi @OoohShiny :wavey: it’s this one
    https://www.berricle.com/sterling-s...ia-cz-solitaire-pendant-necklace-n1400-01.htm
    It’s the Swarovski ZC, I’ll try add more photos for you would like? I think it’s really pretty and certainly sparkles well, it’s only 1.25 ct, perfect size to wear every day.

    My first Berricle purchase just arrived. Really pretty, I would definitely buy again for a fun alternative to my diamond e-ring. Added pics in two different lights.

    Nice!

    What is the performance like?

    It looks like a honker - people will think you are very comfortably off financially! :D lol

    Adding mine here. I've ordered a band to wear with it so I'll post that too once I get it.

    I have to say, the faceting on the stepcut versions really does look very good in terms of contrast patterning and lack of tilt-windowing!

    Do they perform as well as diamond?? (I know they won't perform exactly like a diamond :razz: but do they have good scintillation/fire/brilliance/light performance in different environments?)

    They almost look too good to be true, if you know what I mean :D lol

    I would say they don’t perform like a diamond but I caught a couple of Glimpses of fire or rainbows in the direct sunshine while driving.

    I truly wish Berricle offered a better option for yg and rg than this 'gold flashed' nonsense.

    It's even less thick than gold plated which already is not sufficient imo.

    I really would love to purchase a tennis bracelet but it seems silly to spend $100 on something that might lose its color within days to weeks.

    If they offered gold filled, that would give the pieces a chance to last for years with the right care.

    I totally agree- I really want good items also. Such limited options.
