Question. What did the metal look like when you started? Was it scrap?

Yay! I love this show. If any of you are interested in going we could all meet up for a quick coffee ( at the coffee stand) and talk rocks?

Re: FCD CAD assistance request

The blobby ones on the bottom left corner are revisiting the acanthus leaf idea from Starzin from closer to the top of this page. I'd bezel the pear on that one instead of adding the extra leafy stuff leftover from the CADs. Obviously these are very rough and not to scale. I really like the one at ...

Re: Montana sapphire finally set

Thanks everyone :)

Yes, for the time being I'm just living with it. Looking closely at it I think there are several ways it could be altered slightly to make it look less obvious. When I have it done I think I'll look into milgrain too.

Re: Montana sapphire finally set

It's actually very even yes. Good soldering and everything. The diamonds were mine. They put the setting together with stock pieces. They couldn't get a regular stock setting to fit because the diamonds were a little larger than 1 point and so they had to create something with pieces. But yeah the p...

Or a "denim blue maybe?" Very nice stone, enjoy it.

Re: Montana sapphire finally set

I know I just said I wouldn't re work it but now I'm wondering if miligrain on the edge would soften the look up a little. I like the soft blue color, and I'm a sucker for round sapphires. It's hard to see the details on the setting, but millgrain is always an added nice detail. I need to take more...

Montana sapphire finally set

So I got my ring back today. I'm sure I mentioned a couple of months ago that it was taking a little longer than I had hoped. Also I have to admit I'm not 100% happy with the way the design turned out. However in the end he gave me a very very good deal of just $450. I will wear it and I won't be ta...
