Woah, they have some fire to show - they’re beautiful! And having to wait will make finally getting your ring all the sweeter!
I definitely agree; I appreciate these tiny dancers, now. Being patient, and waiting to be able to set them in their custom made, forever home will certainly be rewarding!!! :mrgreen2:

These 7 beautiful “Vintage” Asscher Cut Diamonds just arrived, today from Yoram, himself!
These gorgeous diamonds are the spotlight, show-stoppers for my next project: bespoke anniversary band!!
I am beyond words happy with them!! I can’t stop looking at them!!
Yoram is a true gem to work with, and I feel like I have found a new friend in the industry! If you are looking for something unique, out of the ordinary, or customized, Yoram is the man to seek!!
I can not recommend him enough!!!
I’m simply in LOVE with these little sparklers!!!
(please excuse the reflection of my iPhone in the glass case).
Attached are photos of the diamonds, and a snapshot of Yoram’s letter, listing his grading for the diamonds!!
I can’t wait to get this project started!!! :love:

Fingers crossed, this project will be full speed ahead, next year!
We are planning to have a vow renewal, in a few years. I’d love this ring to be the one he uses to marry me all over again!! :love: There’s just so much sentiment & meaning that is going into this ring, for both of us; it just seems perfect for him to use it during that ceremony. :bigsmile:

Omg..How romantic! It’s going to be gorgeous..How could it not be with those sparkles! Are you going to wear it on your left hand after the ceremony?
Ooooh..I just noticed you added them to your avatar!

I’d like to wear it on my left hand, initially. I intend to switch it between my left & my right hands, but, initially, I want to see her on my left hand!! I can’t imagine replacing my WR, so I’ll either stack it with my WR, or wear it on my RH. The max width across the top will be between 4-4.5mm, and taper down to around 2mm on the palm side. It will be substantial on my hand, so it will look great stacked, or alone. ;)2

lol!! I couldn’t agree more!!
I’m waiting for the reward letter from my son’s institution of higher learning (ie: college) to determine if I can move forward with this project.
That is expected to be delivered in July/Aug.
From what I have surmised, we should be in better shape, this year, than this past year due to having more than 1 child enrolled in full time college courses, my husband’s child support responsibilities (which I failed to include on our FAFSA, last year, instead, using myself as parent 1-hello, IDIOT!!!), and the fact that my son earned more financial aid from his awesome GPA (proud mom bragging moment).
I’m praying there isn’t something I missed, this time around, and we don’t get hit with more responsibility than we expect......
FINGERS CROSSED!!!

Finally posting an update:
We received my son’s financial aid award letter.
Better than expected, but not better enough for me to pull the trigger on this project.
I won’t lie...it’s painful for me to have to put this project on the back burner. BUT, my children come first, and education is the priority.
However, DH has encouraged me to stay positive; he’s working on a plan B to help make this happen.
The moment things change, and I pull the trigger, I’ll be back with the big announcement!
I know so many of you have been waiting with baited breath (as have I) for word that this idea will finally come to fruition. I wanted to thank everyone for such great support & for sharing in my excitement!
I’m still excited about what is to come!!
Positive vibes!!
Love to all!! :kiss2:

I just saw your post and was hoping your project had started. You are such a good mom to put your children’s education first and wait a little longer. Your ring project will only be sweeter when it is completed!!

I'm sorry to hear you can't proceed right now!

All good things come to those who wait, though, and you never know what the universe might bring you :))

Think positive and hopefully good things will happen!

In the meantime, at least you have some pretties in the jewellery box / safe to distract you in idle moments ;-) lol

EXACTLY!!
We have some savings, but we have some plans for improvements around the house. I’m practical to a fault, so I need to work on my priorities!! LOL!! :lol-2:
This project is first on my list, when other “higher priority” items are met.
Come Hell or High Water, those 7 beauties will be on my finger...lol!!! :mrgreen2:

These litle things YF makes emmit a strong call for seriously fine everything - platinum work, life & luck; else, there must be settings out there worth the dust off their little culets.

It’ll be sooo worth the wait @Matthews1127 you’ll see, the time will fly by. We’re over 3 1/2 years in on a 5 year wait for something, and I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone.

You so deserve this, and I know it’ll be just beautiful on you when it’s done.
