Help! Calling on PS expertise and advice

Hi all! I have learned so much from this forum and I'm so grateful. I need your advice. I'm not sure how many have followed my prong debacle. But here is where I am now. I returned the two remade rings to my jeweler. It was a center round brilliant 2.52 F VS1 And 14 princess cuts totaling 4.7 TCW. a...

Re: Realistic bling wishlist for 2017

I will play :) 1. Finish my reset. ( good news - for anyone that saw my prong disaster - my LA jeweler agreed they were a mess and is resetting my RB in a simple platinum solitaire. And traded my 4.7 tcw 14 princess cuts for rounds and is making a 4-5 tcw eternity band. All for what I already spent ...

Re: VCA Vintage Alhambra White Gold, White MOP

Beautiful necklace. I like the white gold with the mother of pearl. Did I miss the story behind this lovely being purchased? It sounds like it fell into your lap ( or Neck). :)

Re: Show me your princess cut eternity band

I never thought of it but it must be my OCD that doesn't like the prongs on the princess stones!!!!!

My jeweler is out on vacay until Jan 11 so I will just have to agonize/obsess about it until then :wall:

Thanks for the replies. Please let me know if anyone has any other ideas!

Re: Show me your princess cut eternity band

Violet thank you for finding that photo. My aversion to channel setting them would be because I don't like the way you see so much metal and they don't sparkle as much. But set with milgrain you don't seem to notice the metal as much. I wonder if it would work with bigger diamonds. My course of acti...

Show me your princess cut eternity band

I am in the process of resetting my engagement ring. I am setting the big stone as a solitaire. I will have 14 princess cut 33 pointers ( 4.3 carets) left over and I am trying to decide what to do with them. I think if I purchase maybe just one more stone I can make an eternity band. I would wear it...

Re: VC Jocelyn. Vs Gabriella pics pls

Lljsmom and m-2-b

Wow. Great info. Now I'm thinking plain shank on the ering (Jocelyn or Gabriella) and a victor eternity band. I liked the look of yours LLJsmom but I think I would like the 2 shanks reversed.

M-2-b do you have any pics of your Gabriella with plain shank??

Thanks!!!!

Re: Hate my prongs

After spending most my day on this, and going to a B & M in trying some things on I think I'm going to have my jeweler set my 2.5 K round in a simple platinum solitaire and wear it with the seven stone or one or two pave bands that I have. He is going to lower the prongs on the seven stone so th...

Re: Hate my prongs

I sent my rings back to Los Angeles to see if the prongs can be flattened /diminished. Does anyone know if a princess cut can be set like a pave with side rails to hide the prongs? Kind of like this

Re: Hate my prongs

I just hate the look of the prongs and had no idea they would be so prominent. My old ring had 6 prongs on the center stone but it didn't jump out at me. Looking back on my emails to my jeweler, I realize now that every picture I sent him had round stones set in shared prongs. He did not tell me tha...

Do any Jewlers have an opinion if the prongs can be filed down to look flush like this. I don't want to see the balls or notice the prongs. :(
