@becleeham:  7mm is so exciting! no one saw it in smaller sizes yet and smaller sizes always look better in EVERYTHING in my view, be it Asha, Moissanite, and now AG. Please post lots of pictures when you get it.  Your finger size it tiny and the stone will look quite big on your finger, so I think you should go for a nice solitaire setting rather than an elaborate Halo or anything like that. Maybe Vatche Swan?

@becleeham:  Also, I probably would only order the Tiffany Reproduction ring form BetterthanDiamond and only in gold or platinum. I had a Timeless Regal Reproduction in palladium from BTD with Asha, and when I went to sell it, the jewelrer told me that the quality of palladium was quite poor, and the ring was quite light and unsubstantial for the price.

@becleeham:  

Becleeham, if you look at the reviews under the Timeless Regal Reproduction Ring, there is a review that is posted twice from London, UK. It is my review, I don’t know why it was posted twice by them. I am raving there about the ring because I was very overexcited to receive it and it looked good to me. However, the jewelrer said to me that the palladium was not polished properly and the prongs were not polished before the Asha in my ring was set. Indeed, my ring was delayed before being shipped out because in one of the emails from BTD to me they said that it was dealyed because they had problems with the prongs. I don’t know to this day what the truth is, but the prongs were quite thin on the ring, and I read some posts later from other people that they were not satisfied with the prongs in that ring. Overall, the ring is VERY light weight and a bit flimsy, but that is just my perception. I think their Tiffany Reproduction Ring looks sturdier and a lot of people are pleased with it. Solstice is another option, also a very sturdy setting. You also could consider just having a stone shipped to you and then set it with a jewelrer or get Shubah or Amcor or David Class to do a custom setting for you. I know it is only a solitaire that you want, but there is so much drool worthy variety of solitaire settings out there!

@becleeham:  

Oh, sorry I didn’t realise it is a RHR, then you could indeed go a bit flashier!

Just also wanted to add re paladium is that it can be tricky if you go for a design with micropave or something like that. I would really stick with platinum or white gold if you go for a more intricate design.

@becleeham:  Hi again, yes, that is it. Their settings are so pricey for what they are really…

I just actually replied to your post on the Facet Lounge suggesting a Cariter Repro Ring, but that is a pricey one too. Maybe you could get them to send it to MoCo and choose a setting from them as they have so much more choice and it is cheaper as well? But from them I would only go for a sturdier type of setting (like bezel halo), as heard not so good news about the quality of their pave recently. Still, they do have a great choice of sturdy and reasonably priced settings. They do sell Ashas from BTD so maybe something like that could be arranged? Just a thought…
