Ok, so I was hoping for RLY, but it was all gone so Wink sent out a CW Princess - oh my goodness the sparkle! smile It's not as white as I feared, certainly against my skin there's warmth, of course it's reflecting skin tones. But my Asha princess doesn't have that same warmth when I hold it against my skin. So it's warm-ish. smile

It's beautiful, and certainly believable! I'm not sure that it quite has the depth of an Asha, but then I think that's only close up. From viewing distance, 99.9% of people wouldn't know the difference. Shoot, the majority of people can't tell the difference from a crummy CZ and a diamond, and these are just so much more amazing! laugh

Want photos??? Hhhhmmm...??? Lol, here they are! (Btw, excuse the blurry photos, they really showed the sparkle off so I left them)



It's going into a setting like this:
23464L
It's an Adwar setting (23464L), but they only deal in 14K gold and up and I'm having this made by a jeweler I know in Colorado (friend's dad) in sterling silver & rhodium plated.

Hey Wink - are you going to ever make French cuts? I really really really really want some! wink Thanks for a gorgeous stone!

Thanks ladies! Sorry it took so long to get back to you all, it was a super crazy weekend. Everybody is in bed now so I'm finally getting the chance to catch up!

So... I handed my stone over to my jeweler friend that's going to make the ring for me. I finally got to meet him in person rather than just Facebooking all the time! He said it's got the I-J warmth to it so I'm a happy happy camper. He thought it was super sparkly too. He could tell the difference right off between Wink, Chris UK & Asha princess. I didn't even have to tell him which was which.

He'll be here a month though visiting with his kids (our friends) so it'll be a while before I get my ring. Sigh... but it'll be worth the wait! I'll have my sentimental ring back and DH will love it because of that too. smile

How could he tell, especially with the Wink CZ and Asha? Did he say what he thought of each of them?

I wonder if he's seen enough of them, worked with all three, that he's familiar with the cuts.

ETA: Theresa, the CW is such a beautiful color, too bad no more left in the larger size stone. And I am not a fan of PC but your stone is just beautiful love

I'm resurecting an old thread - apologies - but is there consensus on the difference between Wink/Interlap and ChrisUK. I've seen quite a few Winks and Asha's and have preferences both ways for different cuts...I'm now considering buying some of the ChrisUK CZ and was wondering if people had thoughts.

I've bought ChrisUK CZs before and they look pretty good. They are really inexpensive too so you could probably order a few different cuts and check them out cheaply.
