    There are lots of individual threads about Ivy and Rose, also known as MyDiamondZone on eBay, so let’s have a collective thread to show off the lovely jewelry we have gotten from them! Semi-mounts are also welcome.

    Housing this thread here in SMTB so that diamond lovers and CS lovers can both share. I’ve also included the new Filigree Room as it seems to be Ilya Kunin’s new store specialising in old world style jewelry.

    Here’s my three rings from I&R: my Colombian emerald ring in a clover halo, my triangle pink tourmaline ring with baguettes, and a blue sapphire ring in a art deco style setting. All three rings were purchased ready-made.

    I’m glad you love this design too! The tourmaline (rubellite?) is gorgeous. It photographs more red but to me it’s dark pink with a Barbie pink flash.

    All three of your rings are TDF! The colors are so amazing and the settings are perfect!

    I'm obsessed with MDZ/Ivy & Rose. They have great prices and Ilya has a great eye and is always honest.

    Here's my Ivy & rose 3 stone ring. They had a ring that I really liked with MRBs so I had them duplicate it with slightly bigger OECs. It is one of the sparkliest and fiery-est ring I own and it's really comfortable. I usually wear it as a RHR but I like it paired with my simple wedding band too. I wear that as as my travel set.

    The workmanship is nice and the prongs are very dainty in person.

    Here's the inspo ring.

    I also had a .75 ct transitional set in one of their stock settings and wore it all the time. (then my daughter chose it as her push present from me when she had my grandson) The setting was one of their cheapest (less than $350) and is very lightweight and I wasn't sure it would last, but DD has been wearing it daily for four years and it still looks great. She gets compliments on it all the time.

    Thank you for starting this thread, @peacechick ! I've been so curious about Ivy&Rose, etc for some time now. I especially love that sapphire setting. I'm going to have to see if they still have something like it.

    And, @iluvshinythings , your second setting is calling to me, too. That's a great price, it's great to know that it's been holding up well. I wonder if they could make it for me in yellow. Hmmm. (Either of these pieces, actually.)

    How do you feel about the baguette's in their setting? Are they clean and straight?

    AAF12939-2C42-41E7-B3E8-FD0AD1EE5CA2.jpeg I was very impressed with MDZ/Ivy and Rose. Ilya was wonderful to work with. I love my DBTY OEC bracelet that I had custom made by them and the prices were great!

    Mine is white gold so I'm sure they could create it in yellow.

    This is a 1 ctw 5 stone band in platinum that I bought from them several years ago. The stones are not ideal cut, but they are nice quality. This ring is great when I don't want to wear a larger solitaire. Ilya is very nice!

    Very sharp! No, the baguettes are not perfect, they do have visible dark inclusions throughout that give them a salt and pepper look. I think the choice to use them adds to the edgy look, and of course, made the price more affordable.

    Peace, I’ve got the same ring, but with an OEC!

    It’s so gorgeous with the OEC! These art deco styles were made to showcase diamonds, that’s for sure. Thank you for sharing this as I’m toying with the idea of swapping out the sapphire in mine with a demantoid garnet. Now I have an idea how this setting looks with a light stone.

    Ilya made these two rings for me a few years ago with stones that I already had.

    Peace, I think the setting would like great with a DG, although I really love it with that gorgeous blue sapphire too! The pics really don't do this ring justice -- it's a total firecracker! The OMC is small (under a carat; I can't remember the weight off the top of my head) but it packs a colorful little punch! And the low setting makes it totally wearable. As a matter of fact, I'm going to get it out of the box and wear it today!

    We had a PS GTG there several years ago and a couple of people bought really lovely things. Enerchi got a three stone that I regret to this day not buying... :cry2:

    I had this setting custom made last summer. I supplied the diamond from my original e-ring. I am happy with my purchase and the experience. I worked with Sara on the setting.

    The setting is perfect to showcase that stunning zircon!

    Both my antique cut pear diamond and the custom setting are from Ivy & Rose.

    Could someone provide the link to the Ivy and Rose on Etsy? I tried all one word, no spaces, no caps, and nothing! Thanks! I watch their items on Ebay all the time, but never have found the Etsy shop.

    Were you looking for a canary diamond? As I don’t think this diamond is going to look like a fancy color, it’s going to look like a very warm diamond. As long as you know this, I think it’s a really pretty ring! Also be sure to check their return policy. They have a neat buy-back program.
