dont sweat it eleanore, for those that dont know shes in canada with me
hence the hesitation to send the ring back to the US to be set, customs and all that fun stuff..
the jewelers and economy are just fine here so they can be snobs, and i honestly dont even bother with the local jewelers girl...ive been there and when i know more than them well theres a problem, and they are ignorant and have attitudes...plus their work is not so great and totally overpriced...always go with wink, dk etc if the options there...
just to comment on the emerald thing, ino a lot of jewelers that hate to work with emerald period whether thats lab, natural u name it!
dont let it get to ya, its their issue not urs!!
