    IMG_20190318_154925~2.jpg ugh, my hands are so terribly dry. My ring came in today. The milgrain is nice and fine, not rough at all.

    Really nice! How's its brightness in indirect daylight /shade?

    I read that you might revise the prongs, I'll you tell us what the issue is and what you originally had in mind?

    In shade it is very white. I bought DEF I don't see any color to it.

    Ugh, I hit post too soon. I originally wanted thinner more claw like prongs. My local jeweler doesn't think it's the best idea to thin them out. I might get a second opinion.

    These arrived today and I’m obsessed. I want all of the bands in all of the colors! I love low profile rings and you can’t get much more low profile than that. And for glam, just add a solitaire, too. I need a faux emerald and moissanite band stat! And each “gemstone” in both yellow gold and platinum. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to stop. :P2

    Hi ladies!

    For those of you who have h&a from provence, how is the quality of the stone? I am considering having them do my ring, but a few people on Wedding Bee said that their center stones aren't the best quality. Anyone have any opinions? They gave me the best quote so I really hope they have good quality stones..

    are you pleased with the quality of your stone? I'm getting a 7.5mm GH h&a from them, but I have heard mixed reviews about their center stones :/

    It hasn’t chipped or anything. I was expecting a lot more fire because people kept talking about how it’s a dead giveaway. I don’t notice the obnoxious fire. I actually love when it throws rainbows and sparkles like crazy. It only does that In certain lighting.

    Oooh, I think we need to see some pics!!I still really want to get a moissanite/ruby band myself. And one in white gold, too. It is hard to have just one...or three... :P2

    I succumbed to peer pressure. :) Here is a family pic (three bands from Provence) although I don’t wear them together. And a couple of solo shots of the new ones.

    We want all the bands! :lol-2:

    Talking to AC74D997-F6C7-4802-960A-4BE717331A77.jpeg Flora right now about an OEC earring, 8mm, 10k in yellow gold. This is the stone sue showed me and it is waaaayyyy better than the first stock photo she showed me. The petals are much prettier vs the bluntly cut (like a pizza pie rather than flower petals) stock photo she showed before. Trying to upload the video...

    IMG_20190430_110451~2.jpg I received a new stone from Provence and it's much better then the first stone I had. Maybe the sun will eventually come out here in the Northeast and I can take some pictures

    @jrzgrl1119 I love your OEC! It looks better than the first one you had. Do you know if Provence will be updating their cuts? I have hesitated buying from them because they don't use Paypal and I don't like their cuts as much as Tianyu or Starsgem. :(2 But if their OEC looks like this, it might be something I'll consider.

    Also, did you have to return your old OEC? I was reading on the Zhengyong thread that a sales rep refused to pay for return shipping, so there is that, too.

    This makes me feel MUCH better! I asked for a quote today and for a stone with a tiny culet because the few I'd seen had culets larger than I would want. This is perfect!

    I did not have to ship the old stone back. Provence gem took care of everything, I didn't pay anything. Flora was wonderful and made sure I was happy with their product:) I don't know if they will be updating their cuts but I did tell Flora that this cut is much better, hopefully they will!

    I appreciate that Provence was so accommodating. Good on them! =)2 And hopefully they will continue to cut their OECs like this!

    Just an FYI. They send that same exact video to everyone. I ordered a GH OEC and they sent me that video. They also sent it to at least one other person over on WB.

    Here is an actual picture of my GH

    Oh okay, I thought that video was taken especially for me.

    Anyhoot, how do you like your stone? Still contemplating one GH or IJ OEC for a pair of earrings and a pendant.

    The stone is really pretty. Definitely warmer than GH though. The table is a little larger than I like, but it’s not a dealbreaker.

    DCB604C8-0AB6-4496-9215-0A7378CCC816.png Finally got a photo and video of my OEC solitaire earrings and pendant from Provence. These are 7mm, IJ color, rose gold. I dont like the petals so much....they look more like pizza pie slices. Am I being too nitpicky?

    Not nit picky at all. I feel the same way about mine, which is why I haven’t set it. I might sell it, actually.

    If i had your stone i’d actually be very happy...your petals look more dainty. Mine looks sharp and blunt. I dont know what to do.
