Hi DTers,

Some years ago when I first entered into the diamond and jewelry business (I'm third generation) in New York's Diamond District I had about fifteen different people tell me "In this business you'll learn something new everyday". And they were right! I'm looking foward to learning even more from all of these friendly and knowledgeable folks on DT and giving my input on other's questions when I can.
Cheers,
Eduardo

Hi susi,

I would have to say the people I interact with. It's a close knit community (diamonds)and deals are done on a handshake. No beureaucracy, no BS. Just business getting done with a phone call.
But hey, who can complain at getting paid to look at diamonds all day?

And thanks to everyone for making me feel welcome here! I hope to be seeing all of you around.

A big WELCOME from me also!

Love your stuff. So being third generation is your family also with Fay Cullen? Don't feel you have to answer my questions and I hope I'm not being rude. I was just wondering how you like working with family, that is if you do

Hand on and enjoy the ride

Thanks Musthave,

No, I'm the only one with Fay Cullen. Everybody else in in business for themselves. Either in diamonds or manufacturing and designing jewelry. And no, I don't find your questions rude or invasive. ASK AWAY!!!!

I have to say I was on FC.com earlier today. And Gasp!, the ring that I have been trying to make my mind up about was gone. (2.05 old cut diamond with over 3 cts of sapphires down the side). I had just been thinking that I need to save a picture of it in case it sells. I know I have posted it here on DT somewhere, so now I need to find it.

Welcome welcome welcome.

I cannot find the reference number, but I found the picture since I had posted it here on DT getting opinions on it.

Yeah, I just sold that ring a couple of days ago to one of my regulars. She is actually just inspecting it now and might send it back to me on monday. She'll probably keep it though. When I took the measurments I estimated it's weight at 2.50ct. The 2.05 could have been a typo. Now for a behind the scenes look at faycullen.com. Here is a pic of an inclusion on that stone magnifyed 15 times. This inclusion was not visible to the naked eye. Well, It was once you knew it was there and even then only under very close inspection. I ended up changing the grading to an SI.

Hi Eduardo

Great to see you posting here at last! Many of us love Fay's site. I too bought one of her rings (see pic) and I was more than happy with the gradings at which it was appraised.

I hope to buy from her again. (She's also a fellow countrywoman so I feel an affinity)

We antique jewellery lovers often post her stuff as eyecandy for everyone to drool over - I hope she won't mind.

Hope you find DT to be a friendly community. I'm so happy that Dters turned me on to Faye Cullen's site. Woah--what awesome, elegant stuff.
I hope one day to own a Faye Cullen ring..

I find it fascinating how the diamond industry is multi-generational--almost like in the Middle Ages, when sons apprenticed to their father's professions. ( well, i guess it's exactly like it--duh)

I would be interested to know WHERE your buyer finds such lovely, wonderful rings. It boggles my mind how somone could part with some of those rings.

Welcome!

Thanks Beth, Mary Alaina, Bagpuss, Mars, Amethyste, Cnspots, and U2 Forever for the wonderful welcome .

We get our merchandise and diamonds form industry dealers. Very very rarely do we buy from the public. I hope that somewhat answers your questions. Cheers

I think the Fay Cullen site is great, too. Like many of the others here, I am a big fan of vintage jewelry.
