    @Mamabean I really like it! I don’t think it looks too big on you but, of course, we all have our own comfort zones! Beautiful stone too! I say rock it! :P2

    Thank you @Slick1! I don’t honk it’s too big...Haha..I realize what’s bothering me about it. The angles are too big. I should have gone with eight prongs and then the angles would be broken up and not so long. I also think the edges are kind of sharp looking. What do you think?

    @Mamabean, I think your octagon ring is fabulous, love everything about it, so much so that I would say if you ever decided to part with it to let me know except 8.5mm is too big for me lol!

    But YOU have to love it, maybe live with it a few days and if it's still not making your heart sing thing about any changes that could be made that might make it perfect.

    Sorry math teacher in me coming out :oops2: It’s actually a hexagon with six sides. Octagon has eight. At first glance I thought octagon too. I rather love it though either way. Six/eight it’s all delicious. :kiss2:

    @Slick1 thank you for correcting that, math was my worst subject! Thankfully I married a math wiz, just don't tell him I called and octagon a hexagon :shhh:

    Hi guys, hoping someone can help. I’ve read lots of reviews on Tianyu being really cheap. However, I’m looking for a 3ct solitaire oval on a plain yellow gold band and anything even close to that is well over $1500+ .... does that sound about right?

    It would depend on how much gold and the current price of gold but that sounds high. i did a 14k ring w/ a ~2.8ct center + sidestones not that long ago for under $1k. And that price was an increase of about 10% over what I'd been quoted a few months prior.

    You might get a quote from Starsgem also for comparison, and that might help you gauge it better. Sometimes their pricing has been a bit more competitive.

    Thank you @MeowMeow! I just got it today! It took me almost the whole day..but I warmed up to it and now I love it..It’s just so different from anything I have..It has great finger coverage! It looks just as good as an AV moissy. I have two from AV so I feel qualified to say that..:lol:

    @Slick1 I worry about myself...:confused2: I just emailed David to say I would like him to soften the sharpness of the points...It will affect the milgrain but I told him I would rather he remove it all around to match than keep the points. They’re just too sharp for me...:doh:

    :shifty: Well, you are definitely in good company with these things! I am sure he can do that for you as that’s what he offered me. I, on the other hand, want mine more pronounced. What a pair we are! :wall:
