Thanks SCW. Thanks Pinkmoon for the photo. I really like it. I've got a similar one in black agate from the Silver Day, item 685816, that's why it looks so familiar and many presenters wear it as well, only the TSV is east-west style. I absolutely love my ring, it is so sparkly and stylish.

I want to buy it in smokey quartz. Mind you Lola Rose ring would be 69.

Well done on finding this SCW, you're the ultimate QVC super sleuther :)

I'm debating whether to get this, I'm wondering if it's too big, hopefully it won't sell out before I've made up my mind.

I love modern designs usually but this over the top.
If you are going to go large then it has to very carefully thought through
with the design.
I love Lola Rose and although her rings are usually big they seem balanced.
This is just a big ugly gobstopper! It is also the fact that it comes in dark colours to that dont do it any favours either. It does not look right for summer wear.
Well, there is my HO for what its worth

I ordered one of each and they are great. They would be good in other gemstones too. Wondered if they were going to be too big reading posts on forum, but they are fab!

Mine arrived yesterday, I got the smoky quartz version. The stone's quite dark but very clear.

The top of the stone is chequerboard cut, it's been cut very nicely with even faceting.

The girdle sits proud of the bezel setting, as if the stone's resting in a little cup. There's no rubover or claws to keep the stone in so it must be glued in I suppose!

Below the girdle (between the girdle and the setting) there's no faceting, it's round and smoothed like a cabochon cut.

The back of the stone (which isn't visible because of the setting) is a very interesting shape, it's not pointed at the back like a normal brilliant cut stone would be. It's as if the culet has been cut off to enable the stone to sit in the silver cup. That's good because if the cut was conventional the stone would sit far too high above the finger.

Because of the closed in setting, there's no light coming in through the back of the stone. Instead, under bright light (eg sunlight) you get a lovely criss-cross effect where the reflections of the chequerboard lines bounce off the silver setting at the back. This could be why the stone looked a bit cloudy on the TV presentation - it isn't.

The setting itself is a bit unbalanced. The silver at the back of the shank is just too narrow for such a heavy ring. I ordered a size bigger than usual (which is what I always do for chunky rings) but I should have just ordered my usual size. I think that's why Tabs is having trouble with it spinning round. It's a shame as this is one of those 'cutting corner' details that could spoil an otherwise lovely ring.

I wore my ring yesterday for our end-of-term presentation assembly - I wouldn't recommend wearing it anywhere where you need to do lots of clapping as it bounces around on your finger & you could end up with bruises! Otherwise it's a ring for any occasion IMO, it's a keeper.

I ordered my usual size N Jantac, I only go up a size on Suarti rings. The one received fits my left hand index finger, which usually takes a size P or Q. I would have kept it as it is if it fitted my right hand index but it dosent. Its a shame cos i love the ring, but i dont want it continually spinning, we'll see what happens with the replacement.

I've just checked my ring to see whether it 'comes up' as big or small and it's actually half a size SMALLER than the size I ordered - so if yours is too large Tabs then it does sound like you've been sent the wrong size. What a shame, I hope you get it sorted.

Thanks Jantac:) They are sending me a returns slip and will check when it arrives back. Meanwhile i've ordered this to console myself ;)

I received my smoky quartz ring. Glad I ordered it. Love, love, love it! I'm like that overexcited and hyperactive guy from Chateau D'Argent. :D

The ring is very funky and fun, great value for money. I love looking into the stone in the sunlight. It is very clear indeed, sparkles like mad.

Great necklace, Tabs, to match the ring. Byt the way, my ring spins as well, I guess because the shank is too narrow at the back, so I could go down my normal size M. I want it in Rose Quartz as well, hopefully they will add more colours choices. :rolleyes:

Tabs
24-07-2008, 11:45 AM
Thanks Daisy, I guess with the stone being so heavy it makes the spinning more obvious, not sure i can live with it, but will wait untill the replacement in the right size appears before making a definite decision. The necklace will (or should be) a keeper wether or not as i wear a fair amount of browns in clothing too.
