    In January, I sent my 2.16 ct tsavorite from Precision Gems to James Meyer to be set into one of his rings. I asked Jim what he thought of rose gold accents and small sidestones, either pink diamonds, pink sapphires, or white diamonds. After he saw the tsavorite, he recommended unplated WG with RG accents (bezel and side wraps) and two small white diamonds. He did a wonderful job on the ring - I''m very pleased with how it turned out.

    This tsavorite is a bit light in color and shows both yellow and blue tones, depending on the lighting. The RG really compliments the color of the stone. The cutting on the stone is terrific - thank you, Gene! I was worried about the bezel darkening the stone, but the stone is very sparkly and looks great even in dim lighting.

    The ring is a size 4.75 and the tsav is 8.17 mm x 6.20 mm.

    The flower selection in my yard is pretty limited this time of year, but I found a rose that had opened :)

    Here it is showing a bit more yellow (this is the most yellow that I ever see in it). I like that the color is not identical to my other tsavorite ring. This one looks a bit like a jolly rancher in some lighting conditions.

    ztajanice and maevie -- thank you. I was tentative about the two-tone and almost called Jim to switch it to all WG, but am glad I kept the rose gold accents.

    Here''s another photo from Jim that I posted in the CS forum a few days ago. Thanks to those of you who commented on it over there that I didn''t respond to (TL, Caramish, IndyLady) -- I didn''t want to hijack that thread w/ more responses :)

    Breathtaking!!!! There''s no such thing as a boring JM, but the color and cut of that stone are phenomenal and perfectly matched by the mounting!

    tyty333, lightningbug, kittybean, Hest88, blackberry16, yssie, KaeKae, bella_mezzo -- thank you for your lovely compliments. You have all put a huge smile on my face. I''m glad that the lighter colored tsav isn''t shunned for its lack of deep emerald tones [​IMG]

    Uppy I really like your JM rings - after seeing mine in person it is much easier to imagine what your star sapphire setting looks like. [​IMG] I saw you mention another JM project - have you provided any details yet? I''m now planning a JM pendant, but it will be awhile as there are a few other projects that need to be wrapped up first.

    Oooo so pretty. That setting really compliments that stone. And the color is great! I actually prefer that to the more emerald colored stones. I like that it''s even a bit minty looking in some of those pictures.

    all I can say is WOW!!

    that is a very stylish ring!!

    just how did I miss this beauty??

    as a two tone JM ring wearer myself - all I can say is that the mix will grow and grow more on you as you wear it

    I just love how flexible it is - I don''t worry about what goes with what now - as it goes with everything

    the proportions of your new ring are stunning!!
