    :kiss2:This is absolutely gorgeous! I love it! It is so wonderful to hear you had such an amazing experience, and it all worked out beautifully! I recently had an experience similar to this where I didn’t catch things in the CAD phase too, the designer was fantastic as well. This ring is stunningly beautiful, and I’m so glad you found the pink you were looking for and a breathtaking setting.

    Rectangular or square stones set in flowery clusters of diamonds have ever had some power over me - they are a shape real flowers do not do (often,) yet... - & the slight surprise of the shape keeps the jewels intriguing.

    The colour is outstanding!

    Thank you everyone for such sweet compliments. I’m slowly working my way through to writing back to everyone. Gosh, I love the PS community. :kiss2:



    I should have thought of that myself. Here’s a couple pics of the original. It’s still beautiful in its own right...it just wasn’t for me. ;)2

    6C714D04-B5A6-4B85-BB0C-EE31BA172DA2.jpeg 6CB4C1EB-D112-48A8-BFC3-E3EB5AC5D136.jpeg

    Thank you so much. I put a lot of time into this project so I’m glad it paid off. To answer your question, it’s actually very comfortable to wear...and finger coverage galore! It does tilt a little on me (which you can see in the hand shots). To be fair, all my rings tilt on me because I size them up so they can get over my knuckles (damn you knuckles! :angryfire:). Sadly, the sizing beads can only do so much so they still tilt a bit.

    Thank you so much! :mrgreen2:

    Thank you! I’ll definitely work on getting that group shot with the pinks. ;)2

    Thank you. Group shot coming soon. :D

    You’re too sweet. Thank you. :love:

    Just watch out because pink is addictive...like potato chips. :lol:

    The color combo turned out even better than I’d hoped. Thank you! :D

    Wow! Thank you so much!! :love: I was hoping you’d like it since it was greatly inspired by your original version. And feel free to borrow the idea any time you like...it’s only fair. ;)2

    Btw, your new diamond ring is killer!! I’m totally in love with that double row of milgrain. Classic and gorgeous! :love: :love: :love:

    Oh, Elle, that is freaking gorgeous!:love:
    I remember when you first got that pinkilicious stone and were contemplating how to set it. Great choice! I love the the rose gold / platinum too. DK did a great job!

    WOW!!! This is so fantastic!!! That color is amazing and the setting is soooooo beautiful. I always loved D&T's (former) yellow emerald ring and that pink looks stunning in a similar setting. I like the additions and changes you made as well. Gorgeous....and I loved the comment about the PS turnover rate lol. Isn't that the truth lol?!

    @elle_71125 gosh I see what you mean about the stems! That's really unusual... :think: ... Honestly can't say that I like it, no offense to anyone who does. It would have bothered me immensely and I think you made the right decision to have it remade! I'm glad DKJ were very supportive of that process! :geek2:

    Thank you so much. That’s quite a compliment coming from someone who loves emerald cuts. :kiss2:

    Thank you for the compliments. :mrgreen2: Here’s the oringinal version. I’m pretty sure this was the approved CAD but they get a bit jumbled together after a while. Also, I used 14k rose gold. I wanted the gold to be as close to pink as possible and I find DK’s 18k gold to be a little more champagne than I was looking for.

    Thank you so much! :kiss2:

    Thank you. You’re so sweet. :love:

    Thank you! It took forever to nail down a design and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you. I’ve been working on pics. It’s so hard to capture what my eyes see vs what the camera is seeing. Guess it’s one of those gems. :roll: :lol:

    Oh, you’re asking for it now. I’ll have to work on a new family shot ASAP. :P2

    Thank you. :mrgreen2:

    @D&T had a gorgeous original. You can’t go wrong with that in your inspiration folder. ;)2

    Thank you so much! :love: I’ll work on a family shot ASAP but I do have a pink rings group shot coming up...:twisted2:

    Thank you @elle_71125
    It’s all helps in the big learning curve!
    Now I’m curious to see an example of DK’s 18k rose for comparison- you wouldn’t happen to have it as well?

    Quite a few people asked for a group shot with the pinks / pinky reds so here you go...

    PS
    If I see it correctly that you tweaked the shoulder melee size from first to second casting- spot on choices!:love:

    Actually, I do! I took a video of the original ring (with stems) along with my mint garnet ring. The mint is 18k rose gold. Hope this helps. :mrgreen2:

    Love this ring! Amazing stone and setting choice. Plus emerald/octagon cut is my favourite :)

    Thank you! I never knew I’d have such a thing for pinks but here I am. :shifty:

    Thank you so much. :D

    Thank you. :mrgreen2:

    It was definitely a process. I’m not a fan of emerald shapes but this gives it the perfect outline for me. Thank you. :love:

    Thank you. :mrgreen2:

    Thank you. It’s definitely not for a wallflower (which I kinda am, actually...but not when it comes to rings. :cool2:).:lol-2:

    Thank you. :D

    I shared the pink family together but I still have to work on that family shot. :whistle:

    Love the pink family shots, before I was thinking are they are all fairly similar shades? I had seen the other two before but only together in bigger group shots where you cannot pick up on the differences so easily. Now I can see they are all totally different and furthermore there could be room to add to the pink collection :twisted2:
    Thread highjack too where did you get your mint garnet from? Was it the gemstone project? Love that ring so much it’s just perfection.

    Not sure how I missed this thread. I hate t me late to the mahenge party

    I too admired this stone. I’m so glad you bought it

    I’m amazed by your design. :love: The various shapes (petals, rounds, emerald shape) blend so beautifully. Love the mixed metals and the bezel!!
