Those prongs don’t look rounded to me.  Tell them to fix it on the CAD.
I had an ok experience with Tianyu, but not amazing.  I told them VERY specifically that I wanted VERY round prongs.  On my cad, they came out flat.  She said, don’t worry!  they will look round when it’s made.  Well of course the ring came out looking *exactly* like the CAD, so the prongs were not round at all.  There were also a few things that needed to be changed, which they eventualy did.

tzuzoo :  i want to know any tips anyone has as well. I sent them EXACT pictures of a ring I want from another compay. LOL I have been talking to someone named sophia. She has been very nice. we have not had any CAD drawn up yet bc it now it is in the hands of my boyfriend. I just directed him to a place to look and forwarded him the conversation. 🙂 But I also really want dainty-ish prongs. Does anyone know something very specific to ask for in regards to that?

Definitely get them to fix the prongs. I had a shared prong ring made by Star Gems, the prongs were bulky on the CAD and they said they would be smaller when polished. They weren’t, so they had to remake the ring. If you don’t like anything on the CAD, you won’t like it on the finished ring.

Find some examples of prongs you like and send them pictures.

tzuzoo :  I also worked with Sue

I also wanted an EXACT replica of a ring (on Tianyu’s own website!!!) and they were not able to replicate it the same.

tzuzoo :  No, mine required a CAD.  I said, “I want the same ring that’s listed on your website, can you please pull the CAD used to make that other one?” and she said no, she there’s no CAD for the original on their website.  So we made a new one from scratch for my ring.

Above is the original ring I saw on Tianya.

Below is the CAD and my ring.  Yes, they are similar.  But my ring just isn’t the same as the original.
