Pinky58 :  Yes, I asked her for the “engraved leaf design” instead of the “beaded version” and also sent her a copy of your rose gold cad, as you suggested. I’m anxiously awaiting your finished ring pics!

Will be interesting to compare all three versions. I actually LOVE hm2012’s beaded version and her pictures and videos are what prompted me to say I must have a Lacie too lol, so I figured I can’t go wrong either way, but why not see what SG comes up with with a slightly different design.

abcxyzbee :  that is exciting!  Anxious to see the third version of Lacie!  I also love Lacie OG, and I believe that we will all have lovely rings even with subtle differences.

I was just thinking the exact same thing lol, that I cannot wait to see more progress with the Lacie projects, and I checked my email and there was the cad for “Lacie No. 3”!!!

Okay ladies, what do we think? I really appreciate your help on this!

I’m really torn between this “squared off” version (like Lacie Rose) and the more rounded edge of the Original Lacie.

 I found some close up real life photos of the Michael B version, and I think it does appear to have “squared” edges (see below), yet hm2012’s Original Lacie with the rounded edges looks really beautiful to me. I’m torn with which to order. Any thoughts on how “rounded” vs “squared” is going to make a difference in overall look, comfort, paired with an e-ring, worn alone?

abcxyzbee :  yay how exciting!!! I personally like the rounded edge verison but I think it’s just personal preferences on which you would prefer. Either way they are both very lovely and I’m super excited to see how yours turn out!

if you do end up with the rounded edge I may use your updated CAD if you do end up with that. Are sticking with the same size stones as hm2012  did?

cicix3 :  Thanks so much for the advice! Yes, sticking with the lab diamond side stones and platinum like hm2012’s. Yes, same size stones, the 2mm on the top and the 1.5mm on the sides. The band is a little thinner than hers, so I debated with going with smaller stones, but then I was afraid to lose the sparkle. Not sure that decision was right or not, or if the stones will overwhelm the band, but I guess  if they do, oh well, it’ll just be part of this trail and error process that we are all having fun with! I love this thread, how we’re all sharing cad’s and being able to see different versions and options for the Lacie! I’m so appreciative of everyone’s advice!

hm2012 :  Yes, fingers crossed! The ring I am planning on pairing with my Lacie has rounded edges. It is actually similar to cicix3’s three stone!!! We both used the same BE ring as inspiration and so I was sooooo excited to see what SG was able to do with it and wow did hers turn out beautifully!!!

I do have some bands that are squared and some that are rounded. I don’t seem to be sensitive to how either feels on my finger, so I guess it just comes down to preferred look, but that’s what I’m torn about lol maybe Pinky58’s Lacie Rose video will show up in time for me to decide! I don’t want to keep Grace waiting too long for a reply. I just want to thank you all again for all your help, I just love how this board is such a collaborative effort! You ladies are wonderful!

abcxyzbee :  Wow!  That looks great!!   I was torn between the rounded version and the more squared off version.  I decided I wanted to see the squared version… because if they get that right I may order a white gold in a different version!  So many choices, so few fingers!  LOL

Pinky58 :  LOL exactly! I also wish I could get a different version of Lacie for every finger.

So after debating all day yesterday, back and forth, I decided to ask Grace if she could please do the rounded version (I seriously love both looks, but what hm2012 :  said about the ring I’m pairing it with, is it rounded or squared.. it’s rounded.. made up my mind), and I woke up this morning to the new cad from Grace.

Does this look correct? Does it just look exactly like the Original Lacie design, or does it look like we’re seeing the different “engraved leaf” design you all lovely ladies have worked so hard to convey to SG? I’m so inexperienced with cads, I’m not really sure what I’m looking at. Help!!!

cicix3 :  What do you think? Is this cad helpful to you to save for when you do your Lacie?

abcxyzbee :  OMG that looks as close as I have seen!  gasp!!!!   I downloaded so I could enlarge the details, which also makes it blurry…but I’d like hm2012 to weigh on on this one.  IT LOOKS ALMOST PERFECT TO ME!
