I'm so happy for you to finally have a marquise again, Niel! It has a beautiful shape and it is such a nice size! The yellow gold looks very rich! I am glad you set it N-S. It complements the shape best IMO. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Congratulations, and enjoy! :wavey:

Wow what a stunner. Is it unplated wg for the basket? The faceting is stunning and the contrast against the brushed yellow gold is breathtaking.

That marquise is beautiful! And the setting is perfect, I particularly love the claws. David Klass is amazing, I'm having him set my holiday prize diamond too!

I'm amazed at how the softness of the satin finish compliments the sharp angles of a marquise cut stone, it turned out brilliantly! Thank you so much for sharing this.

This is just fantastic, I love it so much. This is a timeless, elegant, feminine, classic ring with a simply killer edge to it. Well done! I love it, and I really love it on you. SO glad you went yellow gold, your beautiful diamond sings! The details are exquisite. I am so thrilled for you, what a gorgeous ring!

Awesome creative venture on your part... amidst another creative adventure- best wishes on your upcoming arrival.

Niel, it is AMAZING!!!!! I absolutely love it. The setting is just perfect for the stone. The brushed finish and triple prong are perfection. The overall package has the classic elegance of an art deco ring with a sexy, subtle modern twist.

I got to see the ASET while it was listed on GOG's website and it was one of the best I've ever seen for a fancy. You found a real beauty there. And the color seems so beautiful with the gold. How are you feeling about it in various lights? How does it compare with your Ks?

I know that you made this happen on a budget - frankly you are a genius at making majorly elegant, big impact rings on a shoestring. You are my hero!!!

I'd LOVE a family pic with your perfect five stone. Pretty please? :love:

Neil -

Your ring sent me scattering, looking immediately for a marquise of my own! I LOVE your new ring. Just gorgeous! And - did I read that you gave your previous marquise away? Very generous! I hope you enjoy your lovely new ring.

Wow Niel!! It's a beauty! :appl: So simple yet makes such a statement. The cut is so lively and eyecatching.
Now you have to wear an 80s outfit to go with it.. get out your legwarmers, cut off sweatshirts and poufy hair! :lol:

Love it!! I'm a huge fan of a colored gold shank with a white gold basket. Pictures are beautiful.
