    Honestly, I don''t think we could TAKE "sun pix". It would be TOO MUCH BLING. Better to
    ease us in this way, overcast.

    Ummmm *tamales* -- even in the face of BLINDING BLING-AGE ... salivation intrudes.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yes, hunger called. Now my shower is calling even more loudly! (even rabid diamond-lovers have their limits, right? Wouldn''t be cool to have a super-clean and sparkly diamond and schlep around with greasy hair!)

    Ahhh, yes. Today is a good day, I received 3 of my favorite things in the mail: the ring, my first-ever pair of Charlotte beach pants, and my THIRD-hand Balenciaga bag (gotta love a good deal)!

    Congrats, it''s absolutely stunning!!!!!!!
    This is my first post, but I had to jump in. I have been waiting anxiously for you to post your new beauty. I too am going to have a Leon Mege 3 stone in approx 3 weeks. However, it will pale in comparison to yours. My center stone will be a GIA Ex, Ex 1.76 G SI1 (eyeclean) with approx .50 tcw pear sidestones.
    KristyDarling, I was hoping to wear a 2mm band with it, do you think that is possible? YOu mentioned that you will be wearing your new ring alone, is it a preference or does a band not sit right? (If this is too personal you don''t have to respond)
    Your ring is fantastic and has gotten me even more excited about mine. It is so great to see what the ring on his website looks like at different angles!

    Cannuck - welcome to PS!

    Your ring sounds like it''s going to be a stunner! Both of my bands actually DO sit quite well next to the ring (one is 2.5mm plain platinum, another is a 2.2mm eternity band), but aesthetically, I prefer it without. I''ve always thought that 3-stone rings look most scrumptious on their own, and you could always wear your w-band on your right hand.

    If you do end up wearing a band with it, go to Tiffany''s and do a test-drive with one of their 2mm knife edge plain bands. It seems that would be the best match since Leon''s ring has the pinched shank/knife edge thing going on. Good luck! I can''t wait to see your ring!

    I just realized that with how low the center stone is set in the basket, it will make cleaning (with a brush) nearly impossible. Thank goodness I have my SI ultrasonic! I also just bought a Jewel Jet off eBay. I figure that the combo of both cleaner types will keep this ring super fiery!

    KristyDarling your ring is just breathtaking, stunning, and blindingly beautiful!!! You simply must wear it as much as possible and tell all your friends and family that it is real. You have nothing to be embarassed about and you should be proud of what you have girl!

    Thanks Kristy Darling, I will be sure to post pictures when its done. I am fortunate to live so close to NYC that I actually saw LM about making my ring. I will be going to back to LM office next Wed to view side stones, i''m seeing stones between .50 and .64 TCW.
    The knife edge band sounds like a great idea, I will be sure to go to Tiffanys and try it on. This ring is an upgrade from my original .74 F VS2 pear ER. My wedding band did not match my ER, so I wore it on my right hand which drove me nuts (I have young kids and it always got in the way). So this time I swore I would get a ER that could be worn with wedding band, but....I went and picked a 3 stone setting-not a great choice, eh? Anyhoo, I don''t mind if it doesn''t sit flush, the non-matchy, matchy look has grown on me.

    Thanks, Marvel and Virginia. [​IMG]

    Cannuck -- the great thing about this ring is that he set the stones fairly low, so I''ll be less likely to give my kids a black eye or knock it against something and set the prongs loose (something which happened a few times with my old ring)...or god forbid, chip the stone! Leon has the ability to create the perfect compromise between setting the stones JUST high enough to showcase the diamonds, but JUST low enough to make the ring comfortable and practical for every day wear. I''m jealous that you were able to visit LM in person! Not the warm and fuzzy type, is he? He is all business! [​IMG] But I took that to mean that he is experienced enough in working with customers to know the most efficient way to communicate. Re: wedding bands, I don''t like matchy-matchy either (my original band and e-ring have a gap and came from different designers), so since you''re the same way, you''ll probably be just fine with a plain band and small gap!

    DH and I conferred and we''re scrapping our idea of a getaway with the kids this weekend! My daughter just had her 15-month shots yesterday and hasn''t been feeling well. And we''re just plain too tired to drive the 2 1/2 hours down to Monterey!

    But, this does mean I''ll be able to take more pics of blingetty-bling this weekend! [​IMG] Praying for some sunny weather.....

    It is a sunny-not-a-cloud-in-the-sky 88 degrees here in San Jose...I was just out for a walk and I think I got a tan!! But I'm not complaining after all the rain we had previously!!

    Kristydarling-

    Your ring is beautiful! LM did a great job on the setting. I looove the double-claw prongs. Now you don''t have to worry about your prongs being lose again! I also like that fact that the shank is somewhat skinny and tapers off on the bottom (like a knife edge). Also, I read your other posts in regards to telling your friends that your diamond is a "moissanite." You shouldn''t be embarassed to show off your gorgeous ring!! Wear it in great health! :)

    It''s ginourmous and beautiful and I LOVE the delicate little claw prongs. Leon''s platinum always looks so gorgeous and shiny in all his pictures too, more than any other platinum rings I''ve seen.

    Can I ask you about the process of getting your James Allen stone? Is there any way to converse outside of the forum?

    Thanks!

    Being partial to the three-stone as I am, it is fabulous!
    I am on my 2nd three-stone compilation and neither time have I worn it with a band -- just doesn''t look "right" to me. I like how a three-stone gives a banded look, anyhow. I personally find wearing two rings to be cumbersome.
    ENJOY!

    Oh, my, it is just stunning! I knew it would be. I am so glad that you went with the larger pear sidestones. The lesser ones would have looked lost! He angled those sidestones so well - they are a beautiful accent but in no way overpower the center stone. The setting itself is fabulous - just love those claw prongs!

    Please wear this ring with pride and enjoy it. You are very fortunate to have it but in no way have to feel that you don''t deserve it.

    I am so pleased that you are happy with this ring. Please take as many pictures as you can - you know this is an insatiable bunch!
