Haha, I can''t sleep either. I wake up most at night, unfortunately. Larry has been very nice and understanding. I was going to order the ring early this week, but our credit union LOST some of the paperwork I gave them, so now I don''t have any access to anything... a lot of fun. And the only way to rectify the problem is a process that takes like three to four weeks. So I''m annoyed about that. Luckily Larry''s been so good about it, and he knows exactly what I want, but I don''t want to order anything until our credit union fixes the problem they created. Rings do take quite a long time to send, especially when you are waiting for them. This is the second wedding band I''ve gotten, and I remember waiting for the first set to come was just awful. I would hear the mailman outside and think that he was going to knock on the door with OUR RINGS. No. Of course they came when I wasn''t there, haha. All that anticipation for nothing!

Hey Poptart...I kind of had a payment delay with my rings too...Since I wanted to surprise my sweetie I decided to send two installments: one for my rings and one for his ring from a separate out-of-state account so that he would not find out about it. Of course the payments arrived at different times

. Larry was so patient even though I made it much more confusing for him (and myself) than it should have been ...but he has a heart of 18K die struck gold. I''m sorry to hear about your credit union troubles. I believe it will all work itself out. I think that after waiting will help ya love your ring that much more! BTW 917 is one of my favorite bangles; can''t wait to see! I''m really excited for you and I understand what you are going through...

Your rings are outstanding, seriously!! If you haven''t already done so, please start and new thread in the Show Me the Ring forum so more people will see your rings. Would you consider giving us a rough idea of the cost of your rings?

Dear diamondseeker,
Rough idea...I considered other wedding sets and I do not believe these rings were any more expensive than OGI or Sudio 311.

Check out

Michael C Fina for prices on OGI

and

Clay Pot for the price list of some VC and OGI rings

(Gotta love NYC!)

I think that band is absolutely gorgeous, poptart! I''m glad you decided to go for it and I can''t wait to see it once you get it!


I just checked out the Van Craeynest website and I am blown away by how intricate the designs are. I wish they were my style so I could get one...although I think I could change my style for rings like that!

Thanks! Aren''t their rings just so neat? Even if they aren''t your style, they are just so interesting to look at. Mayhaps I can persuade you to come over to my side

Also, Larry was nice enough to bring the price down from what he originally quoted before we talked about what size ring I would be getting. I''m getting a 4 1/4 tight, so I guess that allowed him to bring the price down a little bit, which I thought was very nice of him... especially since I was willing to pay the original quote.

Thanks, that was very helpful!

And poptart, that was very nice of him to adjust the price due to the small size (hear that MrsS?).

The Van Craeynest hallmark is an elongated ''C'' with a tiny ''v'' inside. Check out groom''s band L32 on their website:

Van Craeynest Groom''s Rings

I think you can see the hallmark on the inside of the band a little clearer than in my blurry picture.
Hope that helps ya Crown1
