Hello all -- long time lurker here and I'm so excited to finally have something to post about! I just started the process of reaching out to David Klass to design my engagement ring. My bf has already purchased the diamond (a 2.7 carat elongated cushion) and after lots of hemming and hawing (and hours spent on Pricescope on my part) we decided to go with David Klass to create the ring. The community has been so helpful and educational, I was hoping you all wouldn't mind helping me along my journey as well. I have no experience whatsoever with this process, but I've read @sledge's thread cover to cover (and a number of other DK threads), so I'm hoping I have some idea of what to expect. I reached out to DK on Friday and he responded on Monday. We went back and forth a bit about inspiration pics, metals and certain details and he said he would put together the "drawings." I assume that means CADs, or does he mean something else? I work in an industry where 5 minute email responses are (unfortunately) the norm so I am trying to recalibrate, temper my expectations, be thoughtful and considerate, and exercise patience, but I know that some PS-ers have mentioned that DK gets super busy so sometimes follow up is necessary and encouraged. Does anyone who has gone through this before know when I should be hearing back or receive the drawings, or when it might be appropriate / reasonable to follow up?
