I discussed my stone in another thread a few weeks ago. The stone is currently at GIA and I’m planning on having it set right away. I typically work with DK and have been very happy with his work. The quote I received from him was a hair higher than I initially expected so it prompted me to reach out to a few other designers to compare. I’m now deciding between DK and CvB. I have always wanted to work with CvB but I’m feeling a bit nervous after seeing some negative reviews. The estimate from CvB was only $250 more than the DK quote so now I’m torn. I’ve always wanted to have one of Caysie’s settings but since this is custom and not one of her signature designs Im wondering if I should just go with DK again and work with Caysie on another project in the future. Any advice from those who have worked with Caysie before? I haven’t bothered asking her for a CAD or timeline yet. Her time is valuable and I don’t want to waste it unless I’m all in. I’ll attach my stone and inspiration photos.
