    I've been a PS lurker for about 9 months, learning as much as I can after a chain jeweler cracked (yep, cracked) my original emerald cut diamond given to me 13 years before by my DH and which was not purchased from that chain jeweler. The original EC was 1.18 cts G-VS2 with a really great spread (only 61% depth!). Fortunately, after much research on our part, and 4 months of haggling with the corporate giant, we were provided with an acceptable replacement that faced up quite similar in spread to my old stone. Because I wasn't sentimentally attached to the new diamond, I decided to newly set the EC as a RHR and also proceed with a fresh start/upgrade for my left hand. I worked with a local jeweler on sourcing a pair of emerald cut tsavorites to flank the EC, after we determined it would be very difficult to get trapezoid cut tsavs. Originally, I wanted double claw prongs, but this EC has such teeny corners that my jeweler felt wouldn't accommodate the claws. Also, I wanted to keep costs down so I could spend more later on the left hand upgrade, so I went with a modified Stuller setting in 14k white gold. The jeweler had the side baskets of one of the Stuller stock settings enlarged to accommodate the 6x4 calibrated tsavorites. Stats on the EC center: 1.52 ct I-VS2 diamond (64% depth). RH middle finger size: 7.75. I'm really happy with how it all turned out. I've learned so much from PS, I hope this helps someone else turn an unfortunate saga into something wonderful. Thanks all.

    I'm working with GOG for my left hand upgrade - more on that to come in the future!
    For now, here are some pics of my RHR (please ignore my middle aged hands):

    Welcome on PS :wavey:

    Your ring is stunning! What a great idea to pair the EC cut diamond with EC cut tsavs. The ring looks beautiful on your hand and I can see why you are thrilled with it. Enjoy wearing the ring and thank you for sharing your story that turned out so positive for you.

    It is a beautiful ring! So sorry you lost your original the way you did but the replacement ring turned out great. Can't wait to see what you get from GOG!

    Thanks everyone for the compliments!

    @Niel, I'll post it over there in the CS forum shortly!

    @tyty333, yep, I learned my lesson to never-ever let a "maul" jeweler offer to clean your ring or tighten your prongs. Ugh. Sad. I do have future CS plans for my original setting. Once I've got my GOG project done, I'll move on to that project. I've caught the jewelry project bug after reading too much pricescope. :shhh: Shh, don't tell my DH!

    Thank you all so much! I'm enjoying wearing it every day while I wait for progress on my left hand project.

    I can hardly wait to hear from GOG. Oy! In the meantime I'll just chant: I must be patient, I must be patient, I must be patient . . .
