    Has anyone had earrings made from Starsgem? I’m about to have bezel studs made but I’m a bit hesitant because I haven’t seen any earrings by them

    I am looking to make antique cushion cut earrings from SG in 14k yellow gold. I want them to be colourless, will GH do?

    @chunkyfacetlover , @swaye2010 any inputs from your experience would help? I am not too colour sensitive, not sure if I should go for GH or stick to EF...

    DHL notification is showing my ring will arrive on 12/26. I will be happy to post pics and videos. I haven't seen a Stargems OMC in real life yet, but from all the photos and videos, it appears to face up very white. I personally find EF to be too white of a color for antique cuts (OEC and OMC), I prefer antique white color (GH) for my ACCs and IJ for my OEC, but that is personal preference. You can get away with a lot of color is you're planning on setting in yellow gold. My advice...go with GH color.

    Merry Christmas! Please post the CAD of your earrings because I really would like a pair of OMC earrings too!

    I had an ACC just done in G/H and compared it to my emerald, which is also G/H and the ACC is very white in that cut. I would stick with the G/H. If it was an emerald, I would probably say go for the E/F

    Thank you so much @chunkyfacetlover and @swaye2010, my gut feel was right but just needed some confirmation. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. I will definitely post the cads once I get them, at this stage I am waiting for Cherry to send me a quote for the same.

    @chunkyfacetlover I am waiting for your pics before I pull the trigger on my ring. At the moment thinking of something very like yours I am weighing up yellow gold as most of my things are yellow gold or at least mixed gold (white prongs/head and yellow band) I have read if your stone has some colour then a yellow band is a better bet. Anyone have thoughts on this as the stone would be a G/H colour.

    Also (sorry for the questions) could I ask roughly what your ring cost? Sorry don’t answer if you would prefer not too. I am just trying to ensure my quote is ok as I am using my Christmas present $$ to pay for it.

    My G/H stone is very white, even when tilted or looking from the side. Next to my E/F colored diamond 2 row band, I can see a difference, but not when worn alone.

    My ring was $500 including shipping. I paid via Alibaba, so no PayPal fee. I wouldn't hesitate to get the OMC. It's really gorgeous, especially with the claw prongs.

    I received my ring! It's so beautiful! It's really hard to capture it's beauty through pics and videos, especially because it's been so overcast in my area. I plan on taking more when it brightens up out there.

    Sorry it's so blurry, my camera had a hard time focusing. Please note that pics and video make the ring look much bigger than it really is. I'm going to to take some comparison pics with other rings I own.

    Two row ideal cut diamond band E/F color VS from Ivy and Rose Vintage. The stone looks really warm next to my band but the light in my dining room is very yellow. The stone is picking up the chandelier lightbulb color big time. The stone is VERY white in real life.

    Next pics shown with my 1.22 VVS E color Amora Gem Ultra in diamond halo. Hopefully you will be able to get a sense of proportion.

    Yes, I love it! It performs well in all lighting, even when there's very little light. My Amora Gem Ultra can go almost black in some low light which really bugs me sometimes but the OMC doesn't do that. It doesn't sparkle like a round. It's hard to describe. The facets remind me of a mirror, but liquidy. Also, I don't know why the pics show the 4 facetssl as black when they don't look black in real life.

    Thank you, they're beautiful! I don't know why they look black in the pictures. In real life the facets look like mercury, really hard to describe.

    I think the cut is like you said, they're like mirrors. And I agree that it looks great in all the lighting. I love that the G-H color for the OMC cut stills look great so I didn't have to pay the extra money for the colorless version. It's really hard to capture the beauty of it because it just looks much better in person for sure:D

    @chunkyfacetlover it is absolutely gorgeous and it looks amazing on your hand. I agree once seen next to another piece it does not seem massive (just super impressive)

    Nice sleep in @chunkyfacetlover no such luck here!

    I ordered a clone of your ring (I hope you don't mind) except in Yellow Gold. I was worried my nickel allergy might play up otherwise. I hope it turns out as beautifully as yours

    Just so you can see how completely I ripped off your design @chunkyfacetlover :kiss2:

    I am wondering if I should do the prongs in white and the rest yellow? What do people think? cad.jpg

    Thanks @maredith I have gone to Mona and asked her thoughts. If it was Single prongs I would but with double I am worried they will detract too much. Arghhhh and I thought copying someone’s design would mean I wouldn’t have to make any decisions :lol:

    Hi all,

    I've been lurking a long time and have fallen in love with the Rachel dupe some of you have recreated. I am going to be engaged soon and interested in ordering my engagement ring through Stargems.

    I am worried about the melee, I've heard that pave bands are prone to more damage, lost stones etc How are you planning to get that fixed, local jeweler? There aren't too many moissanite jewelers, so I'm worried. I thought perhaps a bright cut pave band woukd be a better choice.

    I've found the following image online and am in love with the style. Do you think Stargems is capable of pulling it off?

    r7622-3-wy.jpg
    I want a shank that tapers from the stone from small to large with one side of pave not 3.

    Thank you so much for all your help. I'm so astonished how helpful this community is.
