I almost shed a tear over that chocolate brown halo!
Me, too sistagrl Isn't it sweet?

Honestly...as a colored stone nut, I've always thought it best to try to find my own, but after looking at Leon's colored stone choices (Pokey's tsav and the ones shown here), I think it might be smarter to let him source the stones!

Thanks for the link Widget. It looks like he''s added quite a bit lately. Gorgeous stuff.

Don''t you think selling pre-made pave rings that are only sizeable within 1/2 or 1 size is taking a huge risk? First you have to find someone who loves the ring. They have to have approximately the correct finger size. And they have to have the cash to pony up. LM''s stuff is big money. Seems like a lot of conditions need to be met.

Well, I guess he''ll find out!

One big advantage with these is now customers can return them if they decide they don''t like them in real life...

Along those lines, if I were him I''d make up some "dummy" mountings, perhaps mounted with CZs, that could be sent out to prospective clients (with some kind of deposit, of course) so that they could better "see" what they''d be getting before launching a custom project...

I''m wondering if the one''s he''s selling were returns, not just some random settings he decided to make and sell. that way he''s not out any $ and might even be taking a consignment fee.

Who knows?! But honestly, I don''t think he''ll have a hard time selling any of it!

For some reason I don''t think so... I think it says on the site to stay tuned...more coming.

This is really a nice change. Love the option of buying something that''s not custom from him.

The few things I really liked didn''t have a price tho. Guess that means I need to start saving my pennies.

Oh my word, those aquamarine earrings are to die for. They won''t be for sale for long.
