Have you ever searched for FOREVER for a design or a setting, finally made a purchase and then had the perfect ring pop up out of nowhere?
No joke, I just commissioned DK to make a customized version of the ring in my avatar. I debated on whether to settle for an OEC or a regular cushion (I really want an Amora ACC or AVC) and agonized over tiny design details and worried whether going custom was the right choice.
And then, just a few days after finally finalizing my order, I see the exact setting I'd based my design on over on the Bistro, set with a 1ct OEC in my size and cheaper than retail: http://diamondbistro.com/category/218/Mo...ite-Center.html
I feel like the jewelry gods are laughing at me. To be honest, if I'd seen that ring a few months I probably would have snapped it up and never thought twice about going custom. But in the end, I'm glad I did, as DK has been great to work with and I've been able to perfect the couple of little things that I didn't like about the inspiration ring. Still! What are the odds?
