    I think the comparison might be slightly different. The one I listed was probably near colorless and it was a 5 stone in white gold with 4 mm. With 5 pieces, it would probably be under $1000. The biggest problem right now is the trade war has pushed the gold prices and then tariff’s on precious metals.

    If you are going to get a 5 stone, I would consider looking at preloved. Just a quick look at Loupe Troupe and I find this one. You can see if she will take offers. I am sure there is even more. I see a sapphire and old mine one too that is like $450. I would go preloved for something like this. I think I paid $540 for a diamond one on ebay. Until the gold prices change, it is not a great time to buy right now and in September and October, it is only going to get worse.

    I heard she's leaving SG soon, perhaps her mind is elsewhere already.

    Like Swaye said maybe it's best to wait until gold prices drop. Thanks for the suggestions on looking at preloved. I think it makes more sense to wait for now. I recently discovered customization and I just couldn't stop working on one project after next.

    I thought since you are in Europe you could check with my stepson’s company just for a price comparison. I know he is getting the CVD lab diamonds. I have no idea if it is cheaper but it might be worth checking as an additional quote. His email is [email protected]

    I thought the nl on your user name might indicate that. Both my parents are from Holland and they have NL stickers on their cars here...

    Awesome thanks for you help. Would you be able to help me pick out the Centre stone?

    I asked for the 8 H&A cut this is the stone they have sent through. What are your guys thoughts?

    That's so cool. Can you speak Dutch?
    People are still driving with those stickers on their cars :)
    At this moment i'm waiting for a ring that Mona is making. She just messaged me that she's in the hospital and the delivery will be delayed with a couple of days. At this moment she's having problems with her VPN, Etsy account too and can't reply the messages. She is afraid people might think she runs away.
    I send her a message back but i think she didn't receive it yet.
    I will definitely message your stepson for my next project. Thank you!

    It’s terrible that our parents didn’t teach us although we have a huge family that all still lives there. We are the only ones in the US. I lived in Sweden for many years and my mother could read everything but not understand them. It would have helped to have known Dutch to get by when I lived there. Everyone wants to practice their English though so it became too easy to get by!

    Poor Mona! I hope she is ok because it is hard to know what is causing these communication problems based on what is going on in the world. I would think that the WhatsApp texting would work. I wonder if she has an Alibaba shop because the chat system there would probably still work.

    If I blow up Michelle’s latest picture from her stone, you can see the distinct arrows that go all the way to the outer edges. The picture they sent you looks a bit like the transitional cut again with these really fat arrows. Can you send this this pic and say you want the standard H&A cut like this one. Did you ask for fat or thick arrows?

    At least the culet isn’t half the size of the table! I still can’t figure out why they’re so confused though. No one that I’m aware of has requested this weird transitional cut, so I don’t know why they can’t get it right the first time. :confused2:

    Thanks for that, yes I already sent through Michelle’s photo. They have sent back this picture it still looks the same to me though? She said it’s the ‘thick’ hearts and arrows, I’ve just sent back again Michelle’s photo and said I want the standard cut. Hopefully this time they get the correct cut.

    Haha thanks I’ve sent your picture through about 5 times now, and asked for the same cut as your stone so hopefully this time is the charm . Maybe they need to rename it the “Michelle cut” so they don’t get confused anymore. Who was your rep by the way I’ll maybe ask mine to ask her.

    I was using Lucy, and she’s only there for a few more days from what I understand. The stone she sent me wasn’t even a custom cut! I’m pretty sure she just grabbed it out of their inventory because she told me she was “going to stock” and a while later I had pics. I told her it was what I wanted, and she sent me a tracking number that same night. So definitely not cut custom by the factory. I’ll definitely post pics when they get here. I’m getting IJ so definitely not the norm, and I’ve got a pair of 5mm side stones coming so I’m curious to see if the cut is the same on them as the 6.5mm center stone.

    I still wouldn’t object to having anything named after me. Just sayin’ :P2

    It's hard to start a new life in another country. I think your parents wants you to speak english well. English is a required course here at school and maybe that's why they didn't teach you Dutch. Dutch is just a tiny language in the world unlike English. Have you every been to Holland?

    I don't think Mona is selling through Alibaba but i can ask her later. I don't want to bother her now, i think she is still in the hospital.
    Her Whatsapp is still working but she needs the VPN to see the pictures we sent to her.
    She told me she can't post or answer the messages through Etsy and Instagram.
    Mona is afraid people might think she run away so i offer to post on her behalf.

    My hydrothermal emerald/OEC ring is done! I ended up going with WG for the heads/YG for the band. The video Sue sent me was better quality than this, but I think you can get the picture. Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    I love it when the sides are the same size as the center. This is really beautiful! I am sure you can’t wait to receive it!

    I feel bad for Mona. That must be very frustrating. I am not sure why she is in the hospital but I hope she is ok.

    Yes, I have been to Holland many times. I was so close when I lived in Europe so I was in Amsterdam s lot and also stayed with my family in different cities. I have a huge family there....

    Thank you! I’m excited to get it. I’ve been wanting an emerald ring for some time. In fact, I bought an emerald target setting from Ivy&Rose, but I didn’t keep it. I think Starsgem did a great job. Hopefully it will be able to get to me sometime next week. Sue said were having bad weather and the ring was delayed getting from the factory to her. Fingers crossed it will be smooth sailing getting from China to the US.

    Have you received your ring yet? I actually just submitted a request for a ring very similar to this one and was curious how yours came out!
    Thank you!

    I know it’s been a while since you posted but I just put in for a band very similar to the one you had made!
    Do you have any pictures of it on? Is it comfortable to wear? I am trying to decide if I want to go with 4.5mm or 5mm for my larger stones. Thank you!

    It’s crazy the difference! The D color CZs are almost blue gray compared to the warmer IJ Moissanite.

    Ignore the set rings. I was just playing around comparing to my other CZ rings and my princess cut F diamond.

    I prefer the warmer color, personally. It gives it more depth and contrast, and it’s also more “believable” IMO. Just my opinion!

    Jocie posted this on her Instagram page today, not sure what the promotion is. Btw Tianyu Emily posted yesterday a promotion on her Instagram too.
