KatherineC, this forum is certainly special! I found great information for my ring project and it helped to narrow down my choices.
No worries, since I couldn't find a real life ring I had time to change my mind, lol. I also gave up on the vendors. My e-mail got caught in the spam filter a couple of times and I was getting confusing information from the on-line chat. I realized I prefer to work one-on-one with someone without the middle man.
I loved DN video & those flawless looking stones but I've always wanted moissanite. I've decided on a custom work that has flowing lines connecting the tulip head and the shank. I will still buy other things "off the rack" later on down the line but more for fun jewelery where I don't have to worry about any changes/adjustments. E-ring is way too important
