well, I've known a few that have been infrequent posters but visit often. I still say a kind email is a good way to go! If we're lucky, maybe it will bring them back!

Well if they do lurk she could post a pic of the ring she is talking about and maybe they would see the thread and check their message box here and she could leave them a PM asking about the setting.... if nothing is posted about or PM'd back come the time for her to start her ring then I say go for it... wink

I'm with you, Roo! All you can do is try. If they don't see the message and you don't get a response you're still off the hook. And for me, you'd not really be asking "permission" so much as letting them know, I guess? I mean, that's how I'd look at it. I would put it in question form in case there's a real issue-but as we've said if it's posted it's up for consideration!

Loc: PA.
I remember when I feel in love w/mimiryan's Morning Blush. I contacted her first and asked her if it was ok to base my ring off of hers. The colors of the stones were the same, but that was about it. Wink renamed mine Sunrise, it was made in all Wink stones in a 3 stone YG/RG setting with Regen(cushion) center and side Radiant's. Mimiryan's ring was made w/Moissanite YG/RG/WG setting all round stones. She was so gracious and wonderful about, but I am glad I asked her first even though they were only alike in stone color only.

No, but here she is, lol.
It's the winston repro with a princess cut centre.
Her's is a 3 carat, which is just too big for me, so i would want a smaller centre

Credit to Paperheart314 for the photo, and owner of that gorgeous ring!!

I don't recall her name .... but the winston repro is a setting that really any jeweler can get or have made for you.... that's not really a custom setting so it's up for grabs by anyone....

.... gorgeous ring though.... smile You have terrific taste... wink

Thank you! I agree it's a pretty basic setting, but I had not ever seen it with a princess cut.
