Caution: What follows is VERY HIGH praise!!!




Now that I have received my ring and that the appraisal has been completed, I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank those who have made my search so much easier. First and foremost I would like to thank Bill Pearlman at Pearlman’s Fine Jewelry. My experience with him was first class. With minimal guidance from myself, Bill picked out the most GORGEOUS and MOST BRILLIANT round diamond that I have ever seen. Its fire is amazing and the colored light that emanates from the diamond is mesmerizing. It is flawless to the naked eye. In actuality, the only thing that the naked eye can see is the diamonds beauty, fire, and arrows! In Bill I have not only found a lifetime jeweler, but also a lifetime friend. There is no one else I would buy jewelry from. Not only was Bill extremely prompt in replying to my HUNDREDS of questions, he was professional, courteous, and friendly to boot. He was interested in me, my family, and my dream. He didn’t just want to sell me a diamond, he wanted my new ring to be the most spectacular ring I had ever seen. Mission accomplished. Thanks Bill! 5 STAR RATING





The second part of the diamond buying process, the appraisal, was amazing as well. I chose to drive 6 hours round trip so that my husband and I could meet with the illustrious Richard Sherwood in Sarasota. Rich is a class act! We stayed with him during the entire appraisal (which was very comprehensive and lasted 2 hours). My ring is pretty detailed and contains 100 diamonds including the center stone. Rich looked at each of these stones and determined the color and clarity grade of the stones. He took idealscope pictures (the idealscope image was amazing, very minimal light leakage), he took all sorts of measurements and imputed all this information into Diamcalc and ran the analysis. The stone scored off the charts. Rich also provided us with three different appraisals (low, medium, and high). He appraised the stone and the setting separately. Rich was extremely professional. He showed me my diamond under the microscope, and answered all my questions while he was doing his analysis. All and all it was a fantastic experience, worth the drive and the expense!! I highly recommend Richard Sherwood and Sarasota Gem Lab for your appraisal needs!! 5 STAR RATING!

Edited to add: 11 Jan 05 - After having problems with my insurance, Rich has sent me another appraisal in Canadian dollars! That is service!

Here is a hand shot (sorry, I didn't realize it was on crooked LOL!) -- Upon seeing this shot, my husband said.... Man, it looks tiny on there, it is SO much bigger on your hand in real life -- God Bless him!!!

You must be so thrilled! I''ve got to figure out how to set my own 1.5 carat H/VS2 RB and your setting is making it even harder to decide!! Congratulations and enjoy!!

Forgive me for asking (if you''ve already answered this in another posting) but will you wear your beautiful ring alone or with the matching wedding band?

Hi Youngster:

Eventually, I will get the matching band, for now, however, I will enjoy the beauty on its own!!!

I''m very glad that you found a great local jeweler to work with. Thanks for the info on the illustrious Richard Sherwood.

Now if I could find someone like that in Wisconsin...

Thanks everyone for their compliments. I really LOVE the ring!!!

Perry: Although Pearlman''s is a local jeweler in Battle Creek Michigan who has been in business for 75 years, I worked with him through internet and phone! So I highly recommend him as another online vendor with a storefront!!!

Good Luck with finding your appraiser!!!!

Have no idea. It''s a surprise. I hope soon. He did divulge that its platinum and three-sided and the width is two rows. I like it a bit wide. He is having it custom made though, so we shall see. Your ring is the flat right. I tried it on at Michael c fina. Loved it. Stack a few single rings above and below it. I was a rock star.

Just wanted to say I never tire of seeing your ring! I too am a member of the "cult" following of Michael B!
