Hello from Denver!
What a fantastic site! I've been reading and drooling on my keyboard for several weeks now, and decided that I needed to join in order to get some advice. I've checked out quite a few of the websites and am quite impressed with what I have seen so far. That being said, any help, or effort to point me in the right direction is truly appreciated!

My BF and I are looking for a setting---art-deco-y style for a 1 carat radiant stone..the stone has not been purchased yet (at least, not that I am aware of...ha).

Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for the links---I've seen a few of them and absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them. My BF would prefer something a bit less "busy" as he puts it, and I have read prior threads from everyone of you that responded to me today recommending certain styles for large/small hands...

And to answer your question about Scuba diving in Denver---its not easy!
We travel a few times a year to "scuba-friendly" locations, although I did become open water certified at a resevoir in April (50 degree temp water---eeeesh)

Hey Webgal!

Maybe you should give your avatar to Scubagirl! It would be perfect!

(JUST KIDDING...I'd never be able to give up that lil guy.)

Scubagirl: A lot of beautiful antique style rings can be "unbusied" a bit by ordering them without engraving on the shank...I think!

Just a thought...

Scuba:
welcome to DT! FWIW--you are going to be the one wearing the ring, so i say get what you prefer. also, it's important to actually try on rings that have the look you want. more than once i've gotten something that "looked good on paper" (or internet, or catalogue) only to have it be hideous on---and vice versa. One of my nicest antique rings was FUGLY in the case, but once i tried in on, i was sold.

Even though my BF would prefer me to wear something a bit more plain, and I am the one who will be wearing it, I figured that we would be able to come to a happy compromise.
I fell in love with the Ritani pave ring...but with a radiant center stone, but he felt that the pave/stones took away from the center.
I suggested a similar setting---no pave or stones on the band or surrounding the centerstone.

Webgal--I read in the thread about "genuine antique or repro" what you said about the size of the band/ring...and I wear a size 8 ring. I too am one of those amazon girls--5'11, and definitely more of an athletic build (thats being overly "PC" by the way, ha ha)..in your opinion, would a ring with a more delicate band look silly on me?

Welcome! You are in good scuba company around here...there are a handful of us. I am going to the Hawaiian Islands in a month on a business trip, but hope to have an opportunity to get in the water while I'm there.

I just spent a few hours in Denver yesterday. Airport. Great little faux French restaurant near the B gate food court. Very pleasant airport dining experience, I must say.

Welcome Vanessa! I love radiant cuts. I'm sure the stone will be lovely in an art deco style.
