Hi all - have to get used to the fact that I am not using Twitter and will stop using the @ before names
MeLikey - I don't think my Mira was quite right. When I compare it to all of the other pictures on this board (even those with a warm tone), it doesn't look as good as the other rings - even some of the non Mira rings. Before ruling out Mira, I would suggest ordering a loose stone and seeing if you like it ( I should have done that first!!)
My mom is....special
. She is very good at giving critical feedback.
DaynaM - I liked my setting ok. I did not like the prongs at all. I requested double claw prongs and expected them to be a little more talon-ish. On my ring they seemed like they were double prong, but just beaded at the top? That was my mistake for not being specific though.
I did think the 2.25mm band was pretty, although it did accentuate the stone more which in my case was not good because of the issue I had with color. If I had a better colored stone it would have been perfect - if I had kept the Mira, I would have changed the setting and added some side bling.
All in all I am happy to have sent it back because the more I look at other Mira rings on this board; I think my Mira was weird. I wish I wouldn’t have been so impulsive and would have ordered a loose stone first. Unfortunately the experience with my mom and the stone left a bad taste in my mouth so I am waiting for the Amora Gem!! Until then it is Asha for me!
