Oh my goodness, this is such a stunning set, @mrs-b! :love: All of your effort and planning (not to mention patience!) certainly paid off and I am truly thrilled for you! It is so wonderful when a project comes together with such perfection. Please feel free to post as many photos as you wish!! :D

The ring is just perfect. It has the wonderful warmth of yellow gold but very modern too because it is not super yellow. What is the carat of the gold? 14? Feels clean and modern and Elegant and BLINGY. It makes an unapologetic statement that Says “I’m here and I’m gorgeous”. I just love it and it looks perfect on you. Very you. And I love how the band blends into your hand but it’s still there and so unique.

So @mrs-b do you still have this eternity and how do they look together? Quite a lot of bling I would imagine. Maybe too much?

@cflutist - Thank you! I love the combo of different colors and textures - adds to the general tactile nature of the set, I think.

@SimoneDi - Hi! :) Finally made it! Thank you for your help and support with this and for sticking it out with me till the end. The company of fellow jewelry enthusiasts made this far more bearable!

@DanDiAnDi - thank you! I love your enthusiasm for the jewelry projects of others - it's so generous! And thank you for your kind comments about my rings; I love them too. :mrgreen:

@GearGirly - thank you! The Christmas theme is subtle but clear. I love that about these rings!

@Bonfire - thank you so much! I feel as though I was veeeeerrrrry patient with these, trying to get them exactly how I wanted them. I think the wait has paid off!

@KristyDarling - thank you! I love everything about them, too! <3

@Alex T - your compliment about my hands is my all time favorite compliment here on PS! And I shall rock my rings accordingly. :))

@motownmama - thank you! The whole set is 18kt, except for the platinum tips on the prongs. And I hear you re old eyes - mine are aching as I sit here typing. Worth it tho. :)

@HappyNewLife _ I'm sure your kids are WAY more beautiful than my rings! But thank you for the compliment. :)

@carbonfan - Thank you! it did indeed take a lot of patience, but I always felt as though I was moving forward, so there was obvious progress right along the way, and that kept me sane. I was rocking the edges of sanity, tho, in the last week!!

@LLJsmom - both rings are 18kt, and the prong tips are platinum. I agree - it's a soft looking color, which I love, and not at all garish. I always try for a clean ,modern, classic aesthetic - I'm not an 'olde worlde' kind of person and my taste runs to the uncluttered, with strong lines and not a lot of gratuitous embellishment. I prefer a straight or curved line to a curly one, mostly because a lot of detail wears on my eye in the long term. So clean and easy to process works for me. Even for me, tho, this is a very big look. Going from an unembellished soli to this was a big step, and I'm still getting used to it. I do so love it, tho! :)

@Starfacet - there's actually no engraving on this ring. The holly leaves you can see were individually made, then applied to the band. I'll grant you, tho, the diamond is indeed a bling-fest!!

@redwood66 - holy tamole! I can't say I've tried my new ring with my eternity!! My fingers are short, and I don't think I have the real estate for that combo. I do still have the eternity, tho, so I'm gonna go give it a try - more or less immediately!

@diamondseeker2006 - I do see myself upgrading my stone at some point, but I'd like to put it back into this setting. I can't see how I could improve on this, so I'll be staying with it for a while, at the least. I think it would be possible to remove the basket and inset a larger one for a larger diamond, but we'll see when the time comes. And to be clear - the time won't be coming for a while! :) Thank you for all your help with this - I've appreciated it a lot.

@Dancing Fire - thanks, DF. I agree with you - totally gorgeous! :)

With rings like that, I'd never sing "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day" again, because it would be! I love them! Especially the "garlands" around the basket – such a nice subtle touch to add to the more obvious (yet so delicate!) holly leaves. David Klass has outdone himself.

Oh that’s lovely!! They look right at home together ::)

I love that you went with an all-gold band. The diamond ring must be such a dazzling attention-grabbing sparkler that you probably don’t notice the band tucked in behind it at first! You’d have to look closely to appreciate it, and the more closely you look the more you appreciate it...I like the contrast in ideology ::)

@Nitedula - Thank you so much! I really wanted it to be >shhhhChristmassshhhh< without it being CHRISTMAS!!! More for my own personal enjoyment, y'know? So I'm pleased if it comes across to others like that. :)

@junebug17 - you're so sweet - thank you! I love the side stones in this setting - like everything is pointing at the center stone going "Look at that!" I've talked to @Niel more than once about the current trend towards 'bobble-heads' - what I call the Kelly Ripa of rings - big head - tiny little body. I wanted more oomph to this one, just to switch it up for a bit, and this is a nice change for me.

Ahhh - I think you're referring to the Legacy band. Most people are familiar with their diamond Legacy, but they also did a plain platinum Legacy. I've always wanted one in yellow gold - wouldn't that have been awesome?!! They never did one, tho, which I always thought was a missed opportunity by them.

Yeah that one. Don’t let that go without me having first dibs

@Niel - were you aware that Gypsy (I think it was Gypsy) was selling a legacy band a short while ago? I'm not sure if you saw it, or if she sold it, but just a heads up in case that's of any use to you.
