I’ve been a long time lurker, but just jumped into my first project with Cherry @ SG. I just got my CAD back for a 18k marquise eternity band with GH 2x4mm moissanite with “V” styled prongs to match my engagement ring.
Hoping to get some feedback on if the CAD looks good, or if anyone sees any changes I should make?
beasmartcookie : Welcome, fellow lurker! The ring looks nice. Do you have any pics of your inspo for comparison? Check out SparklingKate14’s CADs and posts for her ring that looks super similar to this one, just a little larger stones and different prongs. She did decide on the 3/4 eternity for comfort and I think I would’ve done the same. Just something to consider.
ginger74 : FYI: I did ask if SG has done any carved scroll work and they said they have. Grace couldn’t find the example of the one they did so I’m not sure how intricate it is but at least it sounds like they’re building up their skill set!
beasmartcookie : pretty ring. I always focus on the thick of eternity bands to make sure it will be comfortable to wear. 2.6mm doesn’t sound too thick but it also depends on the ring height of the ring you’re pairing it with. I like my rings to be similar in thickness for looks and comfort.
hm2012 : Good to know! I might try for a band from them. My ring was finished and Grace sent two videos. But the face of the OEC is huge. She said she’s asking them to remake the ring for me, unless I would accept it (nope, please remake). So still waiting… Not sure how to share a video here. I tried but it didn’t work. Do I need to upload to YouTube?
alicewndrlnd : yes I saw her rings, they are gorgeous! I sent them these inpo pics and requested the prongs to be more V to match the marquise on my engagement ring.
Thank you for the input about the 3/4 band, I had been struggling with that decision. I thought long and hard and wore a similar eternity band for a couple weeks to make sure I wanted a full eternity hahhaha hoping I don’t regret it. I just love the look of a full eternity 😅
Thank you for the input! I actually had the CAD modeled after a cheap ring I wore to make sure I liked this design and I’m content with the thickness so I’m thinking it should be okay. I see what you mean about the comfort, it would be more comfortable thinner but the current 2.6mm does go well with my ering
ginger74 : I saw your finger size on the CAD so that’s what I was referring to. I used to be a 4.75 😂 when I got engaged. But everyone likes their blings all different sizes. A 7mm is about a 1.25 diamond equivalent. A 6.5mm is a 1 carat DE but any size would look lovely on your finger. I appreciate stone sizes of all kinds. Lately I’ve been really wanting a dainty but super sparkly 1l2 carat solitaire to go with a thicker band. I’m super moody when it comes to ring wear LOL
Bug her about the height of the ring if it’s one of the things that will affect how you feel about wearing it. From the video it doesn’t look unusually tall so that’s a good sign
cicix3 : That is a great deal!! If you want to see the arrows you need to request extra extra thick arrows. See Luckyrabbits recent post of their 1 carat lab diamond. Grace said they’ve cut this before into a moissy. See how you like it. I think it’s gorgeous!!!
I haven’t worked with Demi before but they’re all pretty nice. There was one time she may not have been super responsive but I think on average she is. Are you emailing or using whatsApp?
I go through Grace. She’s super chatty in her down time so we get along really well and just shoot the breeze between projects. Depends on what type of rep you like.
Ack! So it seems as though SG got a hold of some lab diamond rough and have started to cut fancy shapes. I’m not sure what cuts they have just yet but as of right now they have ovals 🤔 Asked on pricing for a 2 carat oval so I can start saving up LOL!
The biggest round they’ve cut is 3.5 carats. Any takers? I want to see these beauties! *Sigh*
Oh! And melee 3mm are $32/each and 2mm are $7/each if anyone is interested to know
hm2012 : oh wow! I love ovals too , pls share when u find out the cost!!
hmm now I’m thinking if I should just have my 4mm sides on my 3 stone ring. lab diamonds ? What do you think .. Demi said she will request to cut 7.5mm with thicker arrows. Would it be off if I use my side stones as lab diamonds and moissanite for the center? Ugh decisions
cicix3 : ooooh that’s a beauty!! If you liked the video of the 1carat lab make sure to say you want “extra extra thick” arrows. The thicker arrows will look more like this 7.5mm.
And it’s a hard call on the 4mm labs. Melee is one thing but I’m not sure if the sizable 4mm will compliment or make it seem more obvious the center is moissy? And I’m not sure the exact cost of 4mm labs. My guess is $200-300 because the 5mm was quoted at $400. I rechecked my chat with Grace again but maybe Demi has a better price. Let us know what you decide!
And I’m not sure I “want” to know what the price is on a 2 carat oval LOL! Even at a discount of 30%….a DEF VS1 oval will be A LOT!! I believe that is the color and clarity of the lab rough they have 😓
hm2012 : haha thanks! I decided I’ll stick with all 3 moissanite stones. I’m super excited now!!! Going to make my purchase right now and then Demi says 7-10 days she’ll show me a video of the new extra thick Hearts & Arrows!
I love your ring! I found that same ring pic on this thread and showed it to Demi about the arrows! So hopefully she gets it right. Do you have a video of that ring? If so would love to see! 😉
I was going to have MoCo custom make a ring for me but they quoted me $1,025 for a Solitarie, and now that I got a quote for $250 for a 3 stone I’m even more happier! Haha. This is my replacement ring since I have previous lost my wedding set 3 years ago >< I love a good deal 🙂
