Thanks again, everybody. My hubby was so sweet to encourage me to get a new ring. And Brian and Lesley did a fantastic job. I sent them a few inspiration pics, we talked a few times on the phone, and tada, they totally got it. I''m so happy with the shape of the tapered shoulders, and the square step-cut diamonds on the sides are very interesting.

Gorgeous sapphire! Where did you find it? The setting is beautiful, too!

ds2006 - I found the sapphire on eBay. I had contacted a couple of gemstone vendors but then this stone got listed by an eBay seller I''d bought from before. I was pretty hesitant at first, after reading all the eBay warnings on the Colored Stones forum, but he gave me a great return policy so I could have time to get it tested and appraised. The results came back on the up-and-up, and my appraisal was really great, so it all worked out. With the money I saved on the stone, I was able to splurge a bit on the setting.

OMG Pierreone! I love love love that ring!!!!! BGD did an amazing job, wow! That is soooo gorgeous. Do you plan on wearing a band with it?


Thanks for posting this, I''ve been thinking of resetting my asscher into a bezel w/ sidestones that are also bezel/channel set and your ring is a great inspiration.

asscher_girl, yes, I do plan on wearing a wedding band with it, but right now I have no idea what kind. I guess that''s my next project Image I''d love any and all input on what style would look best.

Good luck on resetting your asscher.

Congrats on 20 years!!


Your ring is beautiful and I hope to see more pictures soon! BTW, your pictures are lovely, very sharp and crisp.

omieluv - thanks for the compliment. Hubby and I are scuba divers and take underwater pics, so we have a camera with a great macro feature. The pics are all because of the camera, not my skill. Even with it, I must have taken 500 pics, with only a handful of decent ones.

freefly - the seller is siamgold78. He mainly sells treated rubies, but also offers a variety of gems like spinel, sphene, spessartite, and some sapphires. When I bought mine, he had a few larger untreated or gently heated sapphires. Right now he has a smaller (.98ct) gently heated sapphire.

Heart. Palpatations. Can''t. Breathe. Love every wee thing about it ... including that amazing slightly purplish hue and the cushion cut and the sleek setting and and and and and and and ... tilt.

I can''t believe I haven''t posted on this thread, when I''ve been drooling over your ring for the last couple days. It is GORGEOUS! Love that shade of blue- and the design! Perfect!

Thanks so much, everybody, for the kind reviews and anniversary wishes. I feel a bit strange showing my friends and coworkers, so it''s fun to have a place to share with others who "get it."
