Just reading this post - beautiful stones and it sounds like the purchasing experience was also great. When do we get to see the final product??

By the way I love the rest of your rings too - especially the one big rock in the middle!! We have similar taste.

Thank you!! I’m still deciding on some things, but I am concerned about one detail: damage to the diamonds when they are set. I am assuming the Asschers should be insured prior to being set, since they are being set by a jeweler who did not sell me the diamonds...??? If so, I need to find out how that all works.
Believe me, when I tell you, I am constantly fine-tuning the details of this ring in my head, and will be presenting my ideas to my jeweler in the coming months. I’ll pose the questions I have about insuring the diamonds prior to setting them, at that time.
Perhaps others have experiences they can share?

Just coming back to admire and drool and add to the chorus of c’mon already. :devil: We need our bling fix. :love: Wiaoting (im)patiently :cheeky:
Very very excited for you!!!!!:appl:
I just love the excitement, enthusiasm & support from all of you!! This only adds to my excitement, and motivates me further!!
This ring has so much sentiment attached to it, which pushes me to pay really close attention to detail & be very specific. I’m already Type A....this just makes me OCD...lol!!!

To play devil’s advocate, you really don’t need a project in mind to purchase a Yoram Diamond; his diamonds speak to their owner. ;)2
Any of his creations deserve loving homes, even when temporarily set, like @Jimmianne’s.
If you fall in love with any of his masterpieces, take the leap, and let your imagination run wild!! :mrgreen2:

Update, as promised:

Today, I met with Mary, my go-to sales associate. We examined all 7 of these gorgeous, Vintage Cut Beauties under 10x magnification, and under 30x magnification! I don’t know who was salivating more, me or her...lol!
They are BREATHTAKINGLY GORGEOUS!!
I don’t know how @diagem does it, but I am honored to own these beyond beautiful Asschers! The symmetry, clarity, brightness (consistently around and across the stones, as well as within the center) and colorful sparkle of these diamonds are above & beyond expectation!! They are flawless (even with their minimal flaws, which fit each of them, appropriately).
I applaud you, and your skill!! Only in my wildest dreams could I have ever created something this perfect, let alone SEVEN nearly-identical, perfect diamonds, like these!
Mary was able to magnify one of them & put it up on a screen so I could share it with all of you, before we went back to the microscope to play with all the others...lol!!
I am scheduled to meet with Mary & Darren (the jeweler who will create their forever home), next Friday evening.
I gave Mary the inspiration photos we intend to use to collaborate, and integrate into this project. Darren will get the details, next Wed.
Without further ado, here is the magnified image I was able to shoot, today, of one of these gorgeous diamonds by Yoram @ GemConcepts ( @diagem )
I am trembling with excitement!! :appl:

So exciting. They are each works of art and yet the whole is even greater than the sum of the parts. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Glad you’re enjoying he process!

Love these!!! They look huge!!! 009F14F7-48F3-46EF-B6A0-2C2CA6CBD0B0.jpeg 641FC903-5A45-4BD0-A6B3-A63658CAEA44.jpeg 61D0EADB-0982-4B6D-B34E-C723DB02888D.jpeg
So... having seen Yoram's latest boutique offering of more awesome asschers very similar to this ;-) I have been doing some thinking...

Two 3.5mm asschers set 'north-south' in a tension setting could look good, couldn't it? :razz:

And be 7mm wide so 'masculine'? (whatever that is supposed to mean!)

I am sure you posted somewhere but I can't find it now, but would you be willing to share rough pricing per stone? IIRC it was about $1k??

I really don't think I can afford it but it's good to have plans ;)) lol


That said, my wedding band is 7mm wide but I just can't picture two 3.5mm stones widthwise across it - in my head they look really teeny tiny, but in your pictures they look massively larger!! :o

Bank wire price for all 7 Asschers was $7800.00 USD. A little over 1k, each.
I love the idea of N-S tension set stones. Perhaps, if you like thicker bands, you can safely squeeze 3 in there...lol! They look teeny tiny, but proportionately, against my hand, they look HUGE. How they will appear strongly depends on the size of your finger & hands. I have long, slender fingers, but my hands are tiny. As much as I LOVE big, honking diamonds, I’m limited on size because after a certain size, they just start to look ridiculous on me...lol!

Thank you for the confirmation and feedback! :))

Small hands that make things look bigger would seem to have benefits ;-) LoL :lol:
