I had this lanbo setting and I wanted a stone for it. I found this very crystal, medium toned tsavorite. I have some photos of it with my spinel because I just love the combination of red and green together. It's a very slightly bluish green, but my camera isn't that great with green. Both settings are variations of each other.

Here are some cloudy rainy weather pictures.

Incandescent light. Sorry, my camera can't focus in my crappy incandescent house lighting.

That pear is lovely; not the traditional colour of a tsavorite but a hue that I personally prefer. You've got to be kidding me that it's a sub-carat stone as it looks quite substantial in your pictures.

Very, very pretty! It's such a lovely, grassy green, the perfect color for May.

Beautiful, TL! The color is marvelous. How does it look so big? You'd never guess it's 80 pts. Love the sparkle.

Even more impressive than the stone/ring is the fact that from the twinkle in your eye to the finished product seems to be just nanoseconds for you! As my son would say: "You're a beast!" (that's a compliment)

Thank you all for the lovely comments.

The stone looks large because I photographed it so up close, and pears tend to face up large.

The color is actually much finer IRL, but the camera isn't perfect with green, and PS kills some of the saturation upon uploading. For a tiny stone (and to me 80 is tiny :oops: ), the color really stands out a lot. I wish it were 20 times bigger. :naughty:

ETA: I also wanted to note that the lanbo was originally two tone, but my jeweler found out it was plated when I asked him to remove two extra prongs that weren't needed. Just something to keep in mind about lanbo settings. He polished off the plating so the ring would be more uniform in it's metal color. I did not choose to re-rhodium plate, so you can see how the prongs have that "unplated white gold" look which is slightly yellowish. I prefer that actually.

You have very good taste in stones. I love tsavorite and that green is exceptionally beautiful. Both of the rings are to die for.

very nice rings. I particularly like the green. Excellent setting choice:) If you do not mind, I really wanted to say this everytime I see your ring.I think you can do even better with another bench, as I noticed the prongs (esp the pink) are made too big and it does subtract the beauty of the finish product.

Thanks to all of you for the lovely comments. I actually had the setting for a while, and was thinking of a stone to get for it, so if it seems lightening fast, that's why. Although I will say that the lanbo dealer that makes many of my settings is pretty fast. I also get expedited shipping. I was thinking of getting an FCD for the ring, but when this stone showed up, it was the most perfect fit (measurement wise), color and price. It has so much going for it, it was a no brainer.

Agnes,
If you're referring to the prongs on the trillion spinel, I was debating getting them redone, and I may still do so. In a positive note, I think they are very secure prongs, and the last thing I want is to lose the stone, as trillions are precarious stones to set. I've actually lost a trillion before and it had chevron prongs. Thanks for the honest feedback. :bigsmile:

One more cloudy day photo. I wish my sunny photos would show up with the proper color. It literally glows in the sun, but the camera gets confused with green, like my old one. At least it's not an emerald, which is the biggest nightmare to photograph.

Thanks LD, it's mine as well, and it took a very long time to find this color/tone. It has a lot of blue in it, more than the photos give it credit for. While it's not the trade preference, I prefer it.

Dont know how I missed this thread before, but just wanted to say how nice your ring is.

And also thank you for posting it with the spinel. I have a tsavorite and bixbite ring being made at the moment so it nice to see how well your red and green go together :appl: :love:

Thanks Erinl!

Here's some photos I took today in the sun. I think I got a better handle on the white balance. I love the sparkle from this stone.

Hi TL,
Your new pictures are fabulous, and make me want my ring finished asap. I'm still finalising the design and waxes but hope to have it finished in the next month or so. The tsavorite is a 0.98ct pear and the bixbite is a 0.25ct pear but very insense colour and more than holds its own against the Tsavorite. TBH if the bixbite was any bigger I dont think it would work so well. Will definately post pictures once its finished.

I hope my ring turns out as well as yours has, but I know my pictures wont be as good as yours.
