@tootsie85:  To all of you with gorgeous pave or halo CZ rings, are the tiny CZs secure? Do any of them fall off after some time? I love the look of pave since it looks fancier than a simple solitaire, but the one thing that made me hesitate to buy one is that I’m afraid a CZ will fall off and then I couldn’t wear the ring anymore.

These are some amazing CZ!

Has anyone seen a CZ in a legacy inspired setting? I would love a stunt ring for my holiday in hawaii.

@allyfally:  Lol! I have a size 4 finger, so anything over a carat looks humongous on my hand. The stone on this ring is 7.5mm.

@MrsLuvAshaRing:  Your ring finger is smaller than my pinky! Haha. I’m so jealous. Its super pretty though! How do you like it? Does the quality seem good?

@allyfally:  The quality is excellent, but it CANNOT pass for a diamond (unless I bake it to warm it up) because it’s too perfectly colorless and clear. Like I wrote on another forum, it sparkles like crazy and it throws so much light that it looks more Moissanite than diamond (diamonds sparkle less than Moissys).

If you want to pass a TradeCraft ring, I recommend to get something around 1 carat and people won’t be able to tell it’s not a diamond. In bigger size like mine (a 7.5mm cushion) it’s obvious that the stone is too clear, flawless, mirror-y, and way more brilliant than a diamond (but to me that’s not a problem because I tell everyone it’s a CZ, I wanted it for its beauty not for status). My stone looks like a gorgeous Moissy that throws back a lot of white light, and in the right condition it looks like white kryptonite or something.

I baked the pendant for 2hrs at 400 degree and the difference it’s huge. The color is warmer, more silvery gray and diamondlike, but it tarnished the holder, which is normal: I read that baking sterling silver may tarnish it and then you have to clean it to turn it white again.
