you said you need a crown setting. How 'bout make it yourself? I’m a
virtual beginner, and after a bit of advice from people here, I’m
making some lovely crown settings myself. Is your stone round?
My stones have all been either oval or much harder square cushion
cut. So if a determined beginner like me can make nice crown settings
for oval and cushion-shaped stones, you could easily make one for a
round stone. The people here gave me very helpful advice. Including
Leonid. His advice wasvery helpful.Coming from the horse industry, I
just think of Leonid as one of those slightly-grouchy old-school
master trainers who might make you cry during a lesson " and maybe
curse him a bit after the lesson " but you will always be able to
take away something very useful from his teachings, even if you don’t
agree with it all. Actually, there are too many here to mention who
you can ask who will gladly help you make it yourself if you just
ask. Orchidians, remember how awesome you areto help all of us.
