Thank you all! Here are the earrings Dan made with OM stones. I love them! I'm thinking 1 more ring in white gold ;-) 20210206_104940.jpg

@jso72 , I saw your earrings and 8mm OEC that you had Daniel set, they are absolutely gorgeous! You've inspired me to buy a GH OEC from Shan and I've contacted Daniel to set it. I'm tempted to get started on some OEC earrings as well.

What do you think of Daniel's quality or craftsmanship, attention to detail, and so on? Is he comparable to David Klass, if you've worked with him too?

Thank you! I haven't worked with David. I'm very happy with Dan's work & I found him very easy to work with. I had him set a Shan oec in white gold that I'm very happy with. Not the best pics (I'll try to get some in the daylight but you can see his work) 20210408_222243.jpg 20210408_222238.jpg 20210408_222921.jpg

I don’t know, how well known Swarovski is in USA, but I live in Austria, and we have a shop in every mall, as this brand originates in Austria. Usually I don’t buy anything anymore from Swarovski, but this week something caught my eye. Usually they have only modern cut stones, but last time as I was passing a shop, I have seen old cut heart earrings. The color of the stones is rather GH, not glassy white. They are quite big, but sit exactly right on my earlobe.
The price was also right - only 59€ - so I had to buy it.
Here a few pictures:

Oh those are lovelly

Used to always buy something swarovski in duty free

I loved their oriments a lot more before they went coloured
Used to buy little bits and pieces from the nicer high street jewlery chain here (NZ)
i do like some of the jewlwry
Im especially vaunarable to it at Christmas
What puts me off is now its sold in its own store in Wellington it has almost aggressive salespeople
they pressure sell to a formula and are too young to make it authentic so i just stopped going in and just window shop now

Do you have any other pieces to show us ?

I have the rose gold, pink stones version of these and I love them! The white/rhodium plated is sadly sold out in the US, or else I would have picked up a pair of those too! :(2 I love that they’re simple and classic enough for everyday, but can be dressed up for a fancy night. The warm white ones look absolutely stunning on you :kiss2:

As I live in the country where it’s produced, we have here mainly their own stores, but the sales person’s are not pushy. I don’t really shop there anymore, but I had a lot. I sold a lot of the things in the last few months, but I still have a few pieces, and I’m going to make a few pictures for you.

I thought I'd post this real fast. I just got my lab sapphire ring from Stag and Finch. It's a round in their stormlight cut, 8mm I believe, in the arctic blue color. It's stunning, amazing looking. I seriously can't believe how pretty it is. The pic does not do it justice. I need to get more pics because it's kind of moody. Can look almost like an icy purple inside, whereas much more icy blue outside. I might make it its own thread once I get some better pics!

I had an absolutely awful day at work today so it was such a delight to come home to this stunner!

@Bunnie, would you tell me more about, and/or point me to threads about, all the lovely rings on your hands? Both sets are just the perfect example of elegance on you!

You are too kind! :kiss2:

No threads for these since they weren’t big projects for me, but I’ll share the details =)2

Left hand is all moissanite , 6.5mm OEC solitaire on a 2.5mm band & 2mm MRB eternity band, both in unplated white gold. Right hand is a spinel 3-stone (5x4 center + 3x2 sides) in rose gold + sterling, that I had made by DanielMJewelry (here’s the Etsy listing link) + an antique engraved yellow gold band! All on a size 5/5.25.

I picked this up off LT recently to try a larger diameter, up to this point the largest I’ve had is 7mm, this is 7.5mm.

I’ve had a Tianyu OEC before but the culet was smaller so this one has a different look since the culet is a little bigger. Big or little culet, I love them all :)

Oooo, the cut on this one is nice!

Thanks! I actually sold this one because, well I thought I’d like to go bigger but it was a super pretty stone. It’s funny how
the optics vary so much from one stone to the next.

@Austina I hope it’s white..I’ve had bad luck with moissanite from India. I just read one of the reviews where someone said the color looked like an R! She gave him five stars…probably by mistake because she was upset.
She said she thought it was supposed to be D/E. If I read that before I wouldn’t have purchased it. We’ll see!
