    I just bought one from the above listing, as the woman was willing to sell just one of them. I've been looking for a long time for a sugarloaf that was shaped well (pointed square with 4 distinct but soft domed edges) (not flat-ish or too curved). Not Pala Gems quality but nor is the price. Just thought someone might be interested.

    Are these hard to set? I got a 6 x 6 mm one.

    Sweet! A pity she doesn't ship to Brazil, otherwise I would have gotten a few for myself (a nice earring and ring set, probably).

    The sides (at the very bottom) look steep, which is more awkward to set.

    So, did you grab one of them, Chrono? (I think you usually do higher end stones, though.)

    Thanks for the links. Some great eye candy in there ! :naughty:

    I didn't have time to find it yet, as I'm just popping in and have to run out again, but do you know who did the settings on Megeve's pink/red and the green s.l.'s? (I'm glad I asked for the more pointy one, similar to the shape on hers.)

    Tx !

    Say, what color gold would I set my orange s.l. in?

    I guess it most would use yellow gold, as white gold would look silly.

    Tx.

    Nice find. Megeve's make me want one baaaaad! Seems to me yg would look best with your spess. Oooh, looking forward to seeing the finished piece!

    Swala has a couple of spessartites and a tsavorite sugarloaf that I'd snap up if it weren't already reserved.

    Sorry for the typo in my above post.

    The Swala's are gorgeous ! Thanks for the link.

    I do wish the cutters would do more of these. Hint to any cutters reading this: We will buy them ;) .

    Below is the link to the one I got (scroll down a bit). The seller sent other pictures to me and it looks nicer in those. I wonder if the 6 mm. I picked will be a little small. I've never had a sugarloaf so I don't know how these "work". I'm liking smaller stones nowadays, though.

    No, I didn't get any although I'm always on the lookout. I think Megeve went to a local jeweller to get hers done?
