    Wow! It's perfect! I actually prefer the more saturated color (compared to traditional pads). :love: It is going to make a stunning ring!

    Yeah. I’ve found that the more saturated colors look better on me. I’ve had lighter colored stoned of peachy/pad varieties but it just blends into my skin :/

    If you love rose gold, I think that would work well too. I don’t consider myself an expert, but I do love rose gold and I think it brings out the pink. My avatar ring shows the color of rose gold David Klass uses and how it pairs with the ruby pink and green. I can imagine it with yellow gold and that would work too but it would be a brighter look for the metal.

    I love your inspirational Burt’s Bees package. It’s fun how those colors that resonate for us are like our soul colors and they just click.

    Thanks. I finally got around to visiting my jeweler to drop them off (and pick up my new bangle). She’s a bit busy at the moment but I’ll come back with CADs when I have them.
