I have to preface with I have never posted on a forum before and that my Fiance/I are normally private people. That being said, I feel compelled to share my experience as pricescope has helped me immensely along my engagement journey. My fiance wanted a pave set ring that literally had no metal showing at all so we quickly learned that we needed to get a jeweler that specialized in bench-forged hand-made pieces. We could only find 3 people that could provide examples even close to what we were looking for: Steven Kirsch, Leon Mege and Lauren B (never mentioned on this site interestingly) - we did not consider VC because he is based in Cali.

Leon Mege was quickly dropped from the list because, frankly, he is a dick. I called him, told him I wanted a setting and would like to schedule time to come and see examples of his work. He would not make an appointment unless I agreed to buy a diamond from him first - ridiculous - dick, dont go to Leon Mege, that dude needs to remember a what producer/consumer relationship is, especially in a high luxury business.

I thought was Lauren B was a great option however, Steven just gave me a better vibe and I got to speak directly to a craftsmen and not just a salesperson.

I met with Steven for a second time (first was just to feel him out), delivered my diamond and a presentation complete with pictures of exactly what we wanted. He was very patient, read through the presentation and asked any questions he had a long the way. He was very responsive to me throughout the process and would take time to speak with me whatever I would call. I had a great experience and would recommend him to anyone. The ring was delivered in about 6 weeks and cost significantly less than I thought it would.

Setting Details: double-edge halo, split shank (3 sides of diamonds on each shank) with the basket also having 3 sides of diamonds on each stem of the basket. Double claw. ~2.8 carats in the setting. If there are any other questions about the setting or Steven I will try to answer them.

Again, I am floored with the craftsmanship and final product - Steven absolutely blew all expectations out of the water. She was thrilled.

Wow! What an amazing piece! Thank you for sharing. My ring was also made by SK and I absolutely love it. His craftsmanship is perfection.

Would you mind sharing your fiance's finger/ring size and carat size of the beautiful center diamond?

WOW!!! That is an incredible ring! Glacier sure is the right name for it, lol! I think that was a thoughtful detail when you had diamonds put on all 3 sides of the split shank, especially the inner part. Usually the inside is just metal and it looks dark. And I love how the halo hugs the corners of the Assher. Will Mr. Kirsh also be making a wedding band to go with this gorgeous glacier? I can only imagine how beautiful it will be.

Absolutely stunning! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Steven Kirsch made my eternity band and I didn't even consider Leon Mege after reading some of the horror experiences on PS. I'm so happy you got what you wanted! Congratulations!

Thanks for the kind replies all!! I also forgot to thank Gypsy, her knowledge and posts on here were invaluable when picking an Asscher stone that was good for us! The setting consists of 2 point stones and is sized at 4.75. One of the important factors for us were dimensions as opposed to carat weight, that being said the dimensions are somewhere around 10.5X10.5 and the carat weight is around 7. There are no visible inclusions, no warmth and great light reflection.

The craftsmanship on that is stunning, and despite being definitely more on the 'bling' side, it is also very tasteful, so kudos to you for having excellent taste! :))

You picked a great centre stone as well - it can't have been easy finding an asscher that size that was also well cut, so your hard work has really paid off. Congratulations on your happy occasion! :)

What a stuning ring! It looks great on your fiancee's hand. It has a good dose of bling but is very very elegant. I love the multisided pave. Steven's craftmanship is top notch. You have made a great choice by choosing him to create this design and by choosing this incredible Asscher with Gypsy's help.
