I have a client who would like me to make a copy of the diamond ring
her mother always wore. The mom is now in a nursing home and the
kids are afraid to have her wearing such a big and valuable diamond
but the woman always wore this ring and is unhappy without it. I
think the center emerald-cut is over 13 cts. I need to find either a
very wide selection of cz's or someone who is willing to cut them to
order. I have never seen a cz this big. I hadn't ever seen a diamond
this big either, until they brought it in for appraisal--
I have looked around the web and am not exactly finding what I want.
They mostly want to sell me jewelry and I don't see that what I'm
finding is wholesale either. I could buy stones that are pretty
close to what I'm copying and have them re-cut to match but this job
is taking me outside of my usual contacts as I am not normally using
cz's in my work.
Any leads would be appreciated. Thank you.
