    When I found out I'd be going to Los Angeles for a graduation, I decided that I HAD to go visit some of the rings that I've been drooling over for some time. I managed to hit up Platt Boutique on Saturday, then JBG, Singlestone, David Klass, and Infinity Line on Monday.
    First stop: Platt Boutique. Larry Platt is super nice and accommodating, and his shop is so cute and Art Deco.
    2 ct. I-J Asscher in an Edwardian platinum setting:

    3 ct emerald cut, can't remember the color. The price is around $39K:

    Huge OEC:

    Fabulous brooch. The shield-shaped diamonds on each side of the top are 2.5 cts. each!!

    I stopped in to say hi to Amy at DK. David was in Hong Kong. There were so many cool things, I didn't take any photos. But here is the front of the shop:

    I also made an impromptu visit to Alex Rogan at Infinity Line. He makes antique reproductions. Although they are wholesale, Alex said I could order directly from him.

    What a great thread! The pictures are awesome. I almost feel like I went there with you! Thank you for sharing. Anytime anyone mentions going somewhere, the first thing I think about is what possible gem/jewelry venues are in that area. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that way!

    Yeah, it was way too short! Once I got home, I remembered some rings I had wanted to try on at JBG, but forgot to.
