I buy jewelry online; I have purchased quite a bit lately. I don’t think ebay is the place to buy an ER setting. JMHO.

You have to sell your current set in order to buy this one? What is your current set like? You do realize that you are unlikely to get anywhere near what you paid for it.

I’d be very concerned about the quality of the ebay/Traxnyc setting but at least it looks like a return is possible.

Remember, there are real diamonds and real diamonds, if you get my point. And In My Not So Humble Opinion, some of the diamonds selling as pave on ebay would make wonderful industrial tools….

I love eBay! Upon looking at the specific listings, the quality and color of the diamonds in the setting are actualy pretty good for the price (VS1/G color). My only real concern is the seller’s feedback rating – 98.3 percent is on the lower side, and there are over a dozen pieces of feedback warning that the items never came, or arrived damaged.

When you said you researched it, and it seemed legit, I assumed that you saw the ebay rating and read the reviews.  I did, and that’s a big reason why I think the vendor is sketchy and that their product is likely to be poor quality.

Lord of Gem is reputable, considering their stuff is made in China. Notice that there is a big difference in diamond carat weight between the two rings, as well as gold weight and the first is 18kt and the second is 14kt.  So really, there isn’t much of a price difference at all, because you are comparing apples and oranges….or at least oranges and grapefruits.

it holds .75 carat tw

@cherryblossomlove:  TW (really tcw) is the main stone plus the pave stones. In the case of the Lord of Gem ring, the TCW would be the size of the center stone + .21. In this case, that is a 5x7mm stone – not sure what that comes to in carat weight, but the Asha people could probably help you out there.

“Lord of Gem Rings, Offer You the Masterly Workmanship” 

“Please return to one of our customer service offices in Boston or Toronto (not factories in China)”

So, even though you call a US phone #, the setting is definitely made in China. Some people are ok with that, some aren’t.  I do know that many people are happy with their LOG ring settings.  And it certainly isn’t expensive.  If you don’t like it, you can always return it. 

The only thing I would worry about is that the shank looks very thin. There is a possibility that it might bend, depending on how rough you are on your rings – putting your hand in your pocket for example. I have a pear e-ring and let me tell you, that point can sometimes get in the way. 

I would get the setting and see what you think. Let us know how it turns out!

This is my ring; I like the fact that pears are not as common.  Every now and then I think about a halo, but I don’t do it.  I get halo RHRs instead lol.  Doesn’t hurt to keep looking – never be in a rush to make a big purchase.  The LOG setting isn’t going anywhere.

You could get something like this;

or this;

to wear as a right hand ring, so you can see if you really do love the pear halo on your hand before you buy “the real deal”.
