Hello all,

Sorry that this has taken so long. I wasn't sure if I wanted to post the pics, as I was comtemplating returning the stone to the vendor and still am. However, I've contacted WF, GOG and Mark at ERD and not one of them has come back to me with a suitable alternative. I didn't want to return the stone and have nothing left to wear on my finger (as my original e-ring has already been converted to an earring).

Anyway, I am keeping this baby for the time being. I tell ya, I think I was being OTT, saying that I could see a tinge and all. I can't see anything at all now, nada!! In one of my photos - which I've asked Irina to kindly post for me - I've tried to capture the side profile to show this. Was I out of my mind or what?


Stay tuned....pics a..coming....


(PS. I am still waiting for an "alternative" - a bigger stone, sigh!! DSS has unfortunately set in!!
).

sorry, Harriet. It''s been a crazy few weeks. I was working on this assignment, thought I''d end up being an expert witness, finally backed out....it just wasn''t worth it... didn''t believe in the cause.

I''ve read abt yr recent projects, can''t wait to see the recycling project
. and for what it''s worth, I totally think you shoudl go for yr NY condo, if the price is right.

Oh btw, this baby is still in its temporary setting (you may be able to see how cr***py the setting is - LOL). I am still waiting for another upgrade (I know I know!! rather frivolous!! but what can I say, DSS has already set in and all you PS''ers are to blame!! he he
) but for the time being, I''d really like to put it in a more permanent home. I''ve read Harriet''s re-setting thread and whilst I generally agree that a new setting should wait until the stone is finalised, I just really LOOVEEE the setting a la "Lynn B" or alternatively the Leon Mege''s that Harriet posted on "Eye candy".

Assuming I am ok (or rather poor dear hubby is ok) with a new setting whilst waiting for another upgrade (which may take another few yrs anyway), which of those should I go for? I love them both.

Oh sorry, Irina. Those are my new dangling earrings and belong to the other thread. It''s my fault, I''ve sent you two separate emails at about the same time...confusing!! so sorry.

Whee another huge stone for me to drool over. These are my favorite kinda threads, being an absolute shameless size whore, haha.

The ring looks beautiful and I love the simplicity of the setting! What size is your finger? As usual the 3c looks massive...why oh why did I end up with man-hands?!!

Mara,

Thank you. I just looooveee yr ring and btw, I hope you don't mind, I looked up yr threads and may I say how gorgeously stunning you are!! Yr DH is not so bad looking either, he he (actually, he is very good looking too). You make a really beautiful couple, very well matched. I love my DH but I am so small (5'2' ) and dear hubby is so tall (6'4'), I don't like pictures of us standing next to each other. I know I know....silly me!!
. Doesn't mean I love him any less, or vice versa.
.

My ring size is about 4.25. I am not sure 'cos it really depends on the ring. The temporary setting that the ring is in at the moment I think is about size 4. It is really tight and is quite horrid. I only meant to have it for abt a month or so, but alas, after several months, it's still there [sigh].
