That certainly looks like 1 mm to me, too. Once again, I would voice these concerns to Yvonne, she's very nice and approachable. She may be able to reassure you or offer a workable solution to your concerns. :)

she said they are made to taper down to 1mm so idk.

Received my Clarisse ring from Cecile Raley Designs yesterday.

The center stone and inner halo are all Burmese spinels, and the outer halo diamond.

It's not been sunny in my part of California so far today, but I can still tell this ring is a sparklebomb. My Tanzanian ruby isn't lit up on this cloudy day, but the spinel glows softly.

My grandidierite ring just arrived! Surrounding stones are pink sapphires, Pariaba tourmalines and lilac spinels. Love the fine double milgrain..almost a fine pave look without the cost of diamonds :)

It is outstandingly beautiful and unique! What is in the center of the ring? Love the colors!

Utterly gorgeous!
That’s a fine looking example of grandiderite to boot!

It’s gorgeous! I love the color combo and the milgrain looks so perfect! The whole ring is just bright and beautiful. :kiss2:

Thanks for the kind words/likes!

Nicer faceted grandidierite (@Musia ) pieces are usually out of my budget so I jumped on this one because it was affordable due to its size (4x6mm, .49 ct).. I didn't want it to sit in a box while I tried to figure out/find the right melee and design. So I left the design and stone combination up to Yvonne. As she knows my likes/dislikes (sometimes better than I do), I pretty much just nodded my approval at each step.

I wish pictures showed how the ring sparkles.

Does anyone know if you can still return gemstones that you bought during one of her sales?
I looked through her policies and didn't find anything prohibitive.
Thanks!

Well, we were in the final stages of setting my royal blue sapphire into a stacking ring when disaster struck:( Somehow, the setter managed to break my sapphire!
Luckily, Yvonne had another 5 mm sapphire that I liked, that's a more cornflower shade of blue, so we are going to use it instead in the stacker.

UGH so sorry! This stone is lovely though.

Haven't posted here for a while. Here's three more I have from CRD this year. A sunflower in platinum and two camellias in gold.
