Just got a video of my stone this morning!!! 

The bowtie is quite obvious, not sure if I should say something? I’m not totally sure if that’s something that is inevitable with my cut, but it’s a small issue for me. I just don’t want to be getting rushed because of time and deal with little issues like this. Is the bow tie okay??

libra12 :  Hi, what size and color is your stone and what’s your ring size? Looks beautiful

Alright, so here is my CAD. I requested a leaf design as a basket, and while the design looks a little different than I pictured, and strongly resembles another bee’s lotus design for her ring, I do really like it (originally requested the leaves be longer and turn into prongs right at the very top) and think I will keep the leaves like this.   Does anyone notice anything wonky or concerning? I want the ring to be relatively low profile, but not too low-profile that the stone doesn’t catch any light or looks squished down unnaturally. 

Also, I decided to go with 14k instead of 9k gold because the price difference was very minimal, so that’s one change I’ll make for sure.

I should also mention that I made a note to Cherry requesting that the final width of the shank (after polishing) be 1.9mm, so I’m assuming the band of the ring should start out around 2.1(ish)mm?

hm2012 :  Yeah that’s exactly what is worrying me too. I got an odd size 10×7.5 to make sure it was custom cut, assumed that would insure a better cut pear. I asked for the Harro DB so I’m just confused why there’s such a prominent bow tie, but angelwaye pointed out a good thought that there isn’t a good face up view to see if it’s really prominent there. Texted grace asking for more pictures of the stone to see. I don’t mind a bow tie, but one as big as that worries me for sure. 

I’ve obsessed over pretty much every pear video they have on IG and have only seen slight bow ties in all of them, so don’t get why mine is so huge haha.

ohkay :  The stone is very pretty but the bowtie is pretty obvious. I always see it in this cut though, I guess how much does it bother you?

Windborn :  

 

UPDATE: sooooo I’m trying to be as understanding all while being patient and trying to get my vision across. Demi assured me on everything and the video she sent was nothing like the cad. My inspiration was also a LM ring I saw on Pinterest much like the cushion you posted only an Emerald cut. I went with a grey Moissanite. She stopped responding at one point then waited a couple of days to say she’s taked on the ring guys then nothing now tonight say they don’t want to redo their mistakes. It’s really frustrating, and I’d rather they just redo it and correct their mistakes instead of me getting a refund all to work with someone else in the company for the same results. I just asked her what would she suggest I do and she hasn’t responded.  I even found a LM YouTube video showing all of the sides of the ring and they still got it wrong! Gahhhh! I’ll try and attach a video. They also gave me an extra pink stone when I only asked for 3 garnet and an Aquamarine. 

 

I wonder if I could just transfer the job to someone else? Does anyone know? Y’all what should I do? I’m sitting up here late waiting on a reply from her, it shows she read it but nothing. I also have a teething one year old and I really need to be sleep right now! Yikes!

snidertierrar :  the only thing that looks different between the two photos to me is the colors of the hidden stones on the underside of the ring there. Is that what you’re saying? The drawing looks like 3 red stones and a blue? I might have missed the beginning of this, but is the ring on the right the inspiration ring or the final product?
