And here is my semi-mount:D Got to contact a jeweler to set it with my 7mm stone.

Also, nnnoooowwww I want an oval ring. So I contacted Emily to get her opinion on what type of cut they do for their oval.

mrsgreeneyes :  Thank you! Damn Tianyu and all their cuts. Now I don’t know which one I want! Lol. What does everyone think compared to the H&A?

What do you guys think is the main difference (besides the fat edge?). I see a H&A but the cut looks a little different then a modern one.  It is hard to tell from the videos.  I wish they would give it more face time to see it before it gets flipped over.  Since I haven’t been able to make my mind up on a stone to go with the knife edge, maybe I should consider this one…..?

Main differences that jump out to me are the higher crown, smaller table, and fatter arrows.

It doesn’t look like any of the modern North America H&A cut I’ve seen.

Not a cut I would try. 

Emily told me they have 2 H&A cuts. 1 version with thinner arrows and 1 with thicker arrows. She told me the first order I got from them that I didn’t like were the thinner arrows, so they sent me the thicker version the 2nd time around. Whatever they sent me, I love that version. But what I got doesn’t look like “that” though.

angelwaye :  You were asking if the band has sparkles to it. This is how it looks just me sitting here in my FI’s office by the computer.

OMG, same! Can you share details and also like a million more photos of it!? It looks very similar to the DK ring I sent to him as inspo for the five-stone I want (which, omg, did I send him your ring?) 

 

Anyway, would love to see more of it if you’re willing to share! <3

I’m not sure how useful this info is for anyone else, but I thought I’d share. Tianyu can cut weird off sizes (like a 5.75mm round H&A) just in case anyone needs to know. 

I still can’t get over their pricing. $42 for a G. And $38 if I bump it down to a 5.5mm. So insane. Now to just figure out what I want for this stupid 3 stone ring! Lol

If anyone is curious how the OECs are different between Tianyu and StarsGem, here’s a video of it:

I actually like SG’s cut better. It has more thinner pedals look I like. As for the sparkles in the day light, Tianyu has it beat slightly. Though I’m very torn because I love the perimeter cut of Tianyu’s. I love the Starburst look on the outside that Tianyu seems to have more prominent of.
