Re: Full vs. half eternity ring

Unfortunately, I do have an eternity ring that is going to be too small in a very short time :(( I have a beautiful Victor Canera shallow cut band and my finger size has undergone 1/2 size increase in the past year. I did get the band in the new bigger size, but I'm worried that it's not going to fi...

Re: does anyone have a stack/wedding set like this?

I have a diamond shank (but with a halo so not sure if that's really the look you're going for).

The stone would darken too much with the gallery as-is?

I do want to get rid of the scrolls on the gallery- if I did that, would that open up things to better complement the stone?

Re: Help with gold color for prongs for 18kt RG amethyst rin

Amethyst can be a tricky stone (in a good way) as it can be complimented by each metal color. It really depends on the mood/tone of your piece and skin color. I think that rose gold suits your skin tone and the stone's colors very well. It would be a safe route and very gorgeous in a timeless way. ...

Re: Help with gold color for prongs for 18kt RG amethyst rin

You cannot go wrong with rose gold but I loooove the 22k yellow gold. However... whatever your heart tells you will be the right choice. I have chosen rose gold myself and have not regretted it. But I love your pics with high kt yellow gold. The Ammy seems to get extra oomph. I love 22kt gold too.....

Re: Help with gold color for prongs for 18kt RG amethyst rin

Gorgeous stone and ring design! I would indeed keep the prongs on the shank and make a different choice for the profile/head. I would actually suggest yellow gold in the same colour as your wedding ring. Thanks! The ring is a RHR so no competition with my wedding ring, which is actually a pave Vict...

Hi all, I'm having my amethyst set into an 18kt rose gold ring. I have the first drawings, but need help with deciding if I should keep the prongs/basket rose gold or do them in white gold instead.

Re: Reassure me re: paying much more for setting than for st

I should add, the project itself is not an expensive one. The stone was $100 and the setting is $900. This is my first foray into colored stones after an aborted attempt a few years earlier, and my first project with a semi-precious stone. It's all new to me!

Hi all- I recently purchased a 10mm amethyst and would like to make it into a ring (probably solitaire, but not 100% on that yet).

I have the 1.5mm and to be honest, I'm not the biggest fan. I do find that the bands are so slim that the distinct gold colors are lost and it all blends together.

No, I am not. I still have my original wedding ring, but it's not comfortable. I've upgraded and changed settings several times. DH still wears his original wedding ring.

My erring/wedding rings weren't the most sentimental items for me- that would be the first necklace he ever gave me.
