Did you get your Royal Jewellers semi-mount yet?

No sorry. I only ordered it last week and I'm having it modified so I don't think it'll be here for a week or two. It hasn't even been shipped yet. *taps fingers in anticipation"

I emailed Royal Jeweller last night and apparently it's already been shipped! :-o So, hopefully it'll be here next week. Will let you know!

Crikey - it's already in the UK! It'll either be delivered tomorrow (hopeful) or Tuesday (more likely)!

Well I've had that many modifications that if I show you what I've bought you'll think I'm mad. So, I'm going to wait until it arrives and then I'll post the auction photo, what I wanted and what I get! That way you'll be able to judge if he's done a good/bad job. I'm a bit worried to be honest because the original auction photo was yuck but we'll see!

Yeah, their photos kinda blow, don't they? I'm still thinking I'm going to go with them, but I really am waiting for your review.

Online tracking says delivery will be tomorrow so I'll update at some point this week (dependent on delivery etc)! :appl:

I may just go ahead and bite the bullet on the setting I'm oogling. I just got my Lanbo setting from ebay. To me it's delicate, but some people's delicate is another person's flimsy.

Ok - well it was delivered today.

I asked for the ring to be in white gold (the auction was for yellow gold), to upgrade to VS diamonds and for the shank to be modified to fit my stone.

The good news is that it has been modified to fit my stone and is the right size.

The bad news is that it is in yellow gold and it most definitely doesn't contain VS diamonds. They are sparkly enough but they are included (despite being small) so not what I would call VS at all.

I've contacted them and said I'm going to return, expect a full refund and also expect NOT to have the $40 modification fee deducted as this is their fault. I'm waiting for their reply.

It's such a shame as initial discussions with them were very hopeful. :((

Hope that helps with your decision.

Crap. Yeah, it makes me definitely not want to use them.

Thank you so much for the info. I'm sorry it turned out so sucky for you.

No worries. I'm disappointed but in all honesty didn't hold out much hope. You never know though, some things you have no confidence in sometimes turn out brilliantly - just not in this case!

I really hoped they would be good TL - it would have been great to have another semi-mount seller to recommend.

After reading the other thread on Diamondmounts I'm wondering whether Royal Jewellers are affiliated. I asked him direct if he had any other Ebay stores and he didn't answer - so who knows!
