    @Niel I am so thrill that you like her new dress, I think you had envisioned her in a halo, and I was very tempted, but I just don’t think I will be as comfortable wearing a . I am forever grateful to you for spotting her and sharing your find! a marquis shape had never crossed my radar until I laid eyes on this

    Q: I am enamored with EW’s work... now that you have worked with her (and at the risk of sounding uncouth), could you share what premium of price this beauty cost (compared to DK, for example...), this info could save some of us from wasting her time if curios for ourselves... thank you, and lucky you!

    It just goes to show you that you need to look past the setting sometimes. This is absolutely gorgeous!

    Your Something Old Something New ring is a beautiful, unique heirloom @Rubybrick :kiss2:

    I remember your RT thread well! I wondered what direction you would choose - seeing your photos, well, I honestly believe there couldn’t be a more perfect setting for your sunset stone :cool2::kiss2: I know yellow is normally “sunny” but your yellow reminds me of the sky right before sunset - a rich golden spectacle :geek2::mrgreen2:

    Please post some gallery photos!! ::)

    I had to come back for another look. I absolutely love your ring - stone and setting are perfect together. It looks understated but with beautiful presence and oh so very classy. And I agree - it’s looks perfect with your band.

    Hi @lydial this thread addressed costs with lots of input from PS members, I hesitated over the cost, but I think I personally I value the quality of setting and definitely don’t care as much about size of the gem per se. I am very glad that I went with Erika’s design.

    Yssie, thank you so much for all sharing your experience and perspective, I poured thru all your related posts regarding commissioning pieces while I agonized who to reset with. The more I read and think about it, I just knew I will not be happy unless every detail is perfect, which will lead to either more $ spent or an unworn piece. Sometimes what initially perceived as simple turns out to be the hardest to be done right. I think this design is one of those.

    And yes, I love the color of this yellow stone, it is GIA graded as FY, I really feel like the color is a bit more intense than the FY that I have seen, my appraiser thinks it really borders a vivid yellow.

    And here’s more gallery view. Please excuse the iPhone photos

    Beautiful stone, you don't see that many of those. And your setting is perfect. How fun!

    thank you, I really feel very much connected to it.

    thank you! I think of it as small but mighty :lol:
    It is 1.27 carat, but I think it face relatively small at
    8.43 x 5.76 x 4.08

    Today I am going for mixed metal look

    OMG!!! I love the combi!! Especially I recently got those Cartier Trinity in both XS and Slim version too!!!
    I completely understand what you mean about the small face up, it happens for most Fancy color cut (as they need to be cut deeper to intensify the color). As much as I hate this part, but I really LOVE COLORS..... Thus I accept those "flaw".. hahahahhahaha ;)2;)2

    Here's the before setting, which I actually liked, or was happy to live with for a while but my DH could not stand it... he couldn't wrap his head around me wearing so much gold

    Thanks! I love the trinity, and I think the xs and slim are perfect for stacking. I wear mine by itself for low key occasions and thought the xs not quite working for my chubby fingers.

    Exquisite!

    Tickles me that that such an unusual and rare diamond set in the more unusual way (E-W) comes out to be such a classic and timeless beauty!

    Gosh- well done! Enjoy!

    I LOVE the new setting! The old setting is too chunky for me and dwarfs the beautiful stone. Love E/W! Looks so awesome on your hand!

    Thank you for the extra photos @Rubybrick :kiss2:

    So pretty from all angles :kiss2: I really like how you split the two-tone, too - shoulders in white, basket and shields in yellow. Every design element is a single colour :cool2:

    @apacherose nailed the takehome!! :mrgreen2:

    The original setting wasn't bad at all. I think the new one is a huge upgrade though. :love:
