A new setting and band for Gilda, the OEC

As I posted before, last month I bought my dream OEC. Actually, I never dared to even dream of one as spectacular as she, so I am ecstatic. Since I'm one to name my cars I decided to name her too. Coming from the gilded age and being a creamy yellow, Gilda seemed to perfect.

While she had a pretty 14k white gold setting she came in, my eye said something was off. I felt because of how warm she is, she needed some yellow gold. Problem is I am typically a white metal girl. I have however been branching out and have inherited many yellow gold pieces from my hubby's grandmother. I also love how some of the PSers have many bands they rotate with their solitaire, and think I want to do that too, to satisfy my need for variety.

Now, what to do when you have blown your budget and then some on your diamond? You commission jewelryhoo to make you one! I took inspiration from some beautiful rings I've seen and saved on PS, LT, and Instagram, so you might recognize some if the designs, although I did change up some things.

The rings are platinum and 18k gold with TINY diamonds. The band has .28 cts and the solitaire setting a whopping. 03cts. Thanks for reading!

Wow!! I absolutely love this entire set! Just gorgeous! I love both white and yellow gold, so I strongly agree with having both. You did a great job designing these rings. Did jewelryhoo do the band, too? It's so pretty. Congratulations on your new rings. Enjoy!

Thanks everyone, I'm thrilled!

@natasha-cupcake and @Manomi yes, they did my flower band as well at the same time. I did not send my diamond I just gave them the dimensions from the GIA report and had my local jeweler set it.

@maita13 I can't upload a video for some reason.‍

Oooooooh, that's beautiful! Your OEC is gorgeous. And I love the flowers on the band, so romantic & feminine! Every time I see mixed metals it reminds me that I need to try that. You did so good. Enjoy!

It’s so beautiful. :kiss2: The setting is lovely and I adore that band but your diamond is definitely the star of the show.
