Hey ... it looks like I’m in the two week club again ... hopefully, more like one week, but I think that’s too optimistic. Waiting for new diamond custom cut from WF ... should be around 1.70 - 1.75 carat ...

I’m posting a picture of my current ring (on the right) with a 1.42 stone, next to my new setting where I dropped in a 1 carat CZ. I was going to ask people to tell me which setting they like better, but honestly I only want to hear that people like the new setting better, lol.

I always wanted a plain solitaire ... but even after a few weeks, I felt like the one I chose was a bit boring and seemed kind of bleh on my hand ... then I saw this Stuller floral design (that I think was not so loved by icy-jade as she was thinking of a new setting after only a week) ... I’m a floral kind of person and it owned me right away.

New diamond was sent to the lab last week ... I’m anxiously waiting for the results (was hoping to have them by today cuz it’s my b-day) ... and then it will be placed in Stuller setting. But things are moving along and it won’t be much longer now!

So excited!!!! Yay!!! :appl:

Waiting for my DK pear reset although I think it will take longer than two weeks since we haven’t even finalized the CADS.

So I finalized the details for my pear on March 2nd and I got these pictures today! So excited to be getting her back in a new BEAUTIFUL home!

Also David reshanked my OEC three diamond ring and added milgrain to my sapphire and emerald green bands, fixed a diamond that fell out of another ring and fixed an earring post. He is so amazing!!!

Before and afters-

More like the three week club. I finally got my rose de France ring back from Daniel M. It’s very pretty. Hard to capture the true color but I like it’s paleness. The color looks more like the light lilac petals on the orchids in the photo but somehow the pictures are showing like

it’s a lighter blue color and it’s not. Need to get used to rose gold as I’m used to white metals.

Daniel M was such a pleasure to deal with, BTW.

New studs are scheduled to leave Whiteflash in two weeks, so I think I can join this club! I usually wear 1.01 CTW, and this will be a bump up to 1.324, so about a half mm diameter increase. I’m very excited about them! I went with the six-prong setting with la Pousette backs.

@Dmndsr4evr11 the exact same thing happened with the OMC white zircon Daniel M set for me! We should probably all get DSS t shirts or something :lol:

But seriously love the lines of the setting!

My pear arrived! It’s beautiful but bigger looking than I thought. It’s bigger looking than my ACA IMO! She is also so white looking. She looks great in her new dress! I can’t decide on what band I should with her yet. 41873E17-A145-4DDC-AD84-C3CBD1929DB5.jpeg F37F674B-F106-48BD-B145-0D2C8815C266.jpeg 9E4E89F6-7DBB-4739-A8A7-95F8E59F65B3.jpeg

Wow. I like the bands you have with it now but understand wanting to have a designated band for it. Love that bit of yellow gold and ruby in the mix.

Not 2 weeks but I've been debating it for that long and just pulled the trigger. I wasn't looking to make any major purchase, but I've been stressed at work about job change, my dear stone is at Single Stone to be set into my dream setting and is 6-8 weeks out, my birthday is next week, and I'm just generally feeling out of sort and antsy. Call it stress shopping! :eek-2:

It's .5ct center and 1tcw, I just hope it doesn't look too small in person!

It's going to be beautiful! I think it will be a really nice size in person.

I saw this on Instagram and I absolutely love it! I have a pear as well and this may be the most beautiful halo I have even seen around a pear. I love the different sized melee
