My BF and I are spending the day in the city on Monday and were planning on going to the DD so I can try on some more rings :o)
I have a very specific look in mind (three stone with a halo BUT I want the halo to go around all 3 stone…It kind of looks like a little cloud). This is proving to be a very hard ring to find. All of the 3 stone rings that we’ve looked at so far have had tiny side stones and this doesnt sit well with the symbolism of the 3 stone. To me it says that the past and the future are not as important as the present..and then the few that are true 3 stone rings and have halos, unfortunatly have individual halos around the 3 diamonds.(and again messes up the meaning of the 3 stone for me).
I know I’m being super picky but this is the ring that I’m going to wear for the rest of my life!
Sooo any fellow bees know of a good place to go to in the diamond district? Or any other place in NY? Or knows someone that knows someone that can make this ring??
Thanks for the help Bees!!

I would sketch out or photoshop what you want and take it to jewelers (lots of jewelers as they vary a LOT). Also consider having it made. Custom jewelry isn’t nearly as high as people usually think it is, and then if you have it done at a local place it’s usually cheaper in the end because they aren’t a big chain store. Pre-made or custom, you’re still paying for materials and labor, one is just prepackaged so to speak.
If you end up going custom make sure you talk to the actual jewelers and also see their work. I had one tell me he’d make it but I’d hate it (hah!), a couple were excited to make it, and the rest in the middle (just another business day/trasaction). We picked one who was excited and had good work.
