    Hi Everyone!

    I first reached out for some advice on Pricescope a little over a year ago, and after taking a hiatus on the project, I'm happy to announce that the brilliantly talented Steven Kirsch is currently making my dream engagement ring! It'll be a 4 ct square emerald center with tapered baguettes. While it's not finished yet, he very kindly gave me some progress pics to quell my curiosity and needless to say, I couldn't be more thrilled with it so far. I've been wanting a piece by Steven for what seems like forever and I can't believe it's finally happening haha!

    I just wanted to say that Steven has been a dream to work with - extremely patient, accommodating, and professional. Even with all communication being done solely through email, he is very responsive and just as detail-oriented as I would expect if I met him in person. He was also kind enough to honor his original quote despite my hiatus on the project, which was a nice gesture. I think one of the best and most reassuring things about the process with him so far is that he has really made me feel taken care of...he let me give him as much detail as I could, and then for the other parts I wasn't sure I knew enough to speak to, he said he could tell just what I wanted and would take care of the rest. Based on the pics, he is spot on with what I had in mind - his knowledge, aesthetics and quality of work speak for themselves :)

    Also, just wanted to thank all of you for helping me get educated about diamonds/engagement rings/vendors, especially Gypsy, mom2boys,caratlover2,animalia, CherryBlossom, diamondseeker2006, Christina and GoCubsGo25 for your input :)

    And of course, specs:
    4 ct - GIA certified
    Color: G
    Clarity: VS2
    Polish/Symmetry: Excellent
    No Florescence
    9.17x8.9x5.85 mm
    Finger size: 3.5

    Thanks guys!!

    My goodness, this ring is going to be a knockout! and really substantial on your small finger - very interesting to see the process of making the ring. I'm sure the wait is killing you - please come back with pics of the finished piece!

    Oh my :love: :love: :love:

    Your stone looks gorgeous! A 4 ct square emerald is a true dream stone! I can already see this is going to be a stunning ring. Steven makes such beautiful and high quality rings. He will make your already beautiful stone a true star in that setting.

    I will be on the lookout until your ring is ready, that's for sure. Thanks for sharing the 'making of' pics!

    Thanks everyone for the support! I promise I'll post some handshots as soon as I get them. The wait is DEFINITELY getting to me now!! 8)

    And thank you all for your kind comments as well! Pictures of jewels plus a warm community of advisors, supporters and well-wishers? Is there anything better?! I have learned so much from you all and your beautiful jewelry that I am glad Steven gave me some informative pics to contribute.

    And heididdl, I completely agree... one of the best parts of pricescope is being able to live through the process with fellow pricescopers when they share their stories and projects. No wonder I am completely addicted to this site. :D

    Will keep you all posted!

    Oh my word, it's amazing! Perfectly executed and the proportions are just right - and I don't think it's possible to get much more classic and elegant than this! Can't wait to see hand shots!
