I love these Ring/Pendant...it means you can wear it any time, any way or every day.

We thought we were pretty much done once we figured out the correct halo diamond size to make it all work and look good. However the stone in the inspiration is a flat bottomed cabochon whereas we had to deal with the pavilion on our faceted stone. In laying out the intertwined halos we took a lot of time to get the right spacing between them. However when we first put in the gallery we had all kinds of metal passing under those spaces in order to support the outer halos. It took some doing but we eventually figured out how to support the halos and keep the gaps between the halos clear.
Yes, the larger bale is stored separately when the piece is being worn as a ring.

Sorry for the delay in posting photos, DW has been super busy the last couple of days, but better late than never:

The light was failing, and the sun was low in the sky by the time we got to the neck shots. Here are the best two:

Its so lovely on you!! The color is incredibly vivacious! Such a clever and versatile piece! I think you will never tire of it. It's positively regal!! May you enjoy for many years to come!!

Beautiful I love the color of that tourmaline and it’s another substantial piece, hard to get a sense of that scale until it was modelled! It will be interesting to see if your wife develops a preference for wearing it one way over the other.

What an incredible piece!!! Very lucky DW! I love the versatility of being able to wear it as both a ring or pendant!! The color of the stone is so gorgeous and vibrant as well

I love it!!

Beautiful rubellite and gorgeous setting. It's a work of art. My words are not enough to express just how exquisite your ringdant is. Enjoy it in good health for many years to come!
by grateful4life » Aug 6, 2019
Absolutely fabulous in every way! Love the pink, love the setting and LOVE the versatility!
by Sunshinelab » Aug 6, 2019
This is just so beautiful!
by prs » Aug 6, 2019
Thank you @voce The stone was definitely a hot pink, but seems to have become more red and more vivid in the setting; it must be very happy in there!!!
A mahenge spinel had been on our bucket list, but I'm not sure we need one now, this stone is pretty darn close in color.
by Rubybrick » Aug 7, 2019
Wow, so clever and beautiful! The size is much more appreciable on your DW! Thanks for sharing!
by Tonks » Aug 7, 2019
Predicting that DK will get a LOT of requests for ringdants after this! This is incredibly cool. Congrats on a well executed, versatile piece!

The stone measured 16.0x11.2 so one of our concerns during the design was to make sure the setting didn't become too wide to be worn comfortably as a ring. We started with all the diamonds in the halos being of equal size, but in addition to being too wide, the face view just looked too chubby. We then tried tapering down the size of the diamonds on the outer halos, and not only did the width decrease, but the setting became much more beautiful!!! The final dimensions of the piece are 25.0x19.6 and DW finds it to be very comfortable on her size 7 finger.
Don't know what her preference will be, but I'm pulling for the ring!
by Ceilimom » Aug 7, 2019
That color is a show stopper along with the design. There's a way to deal with not having enough fingers to wear all one's special treasures, fantastic design. Congratulations and enjoy wearing this beauty.

That halo, the colour....absolutely exquisite!!!
by Octo2005 » Aug 7, 2019
It's stunning! When I saw it on his IG, I was so hoping that it belonged to a PS member so I could see more photos.
Congratulations on an amazing addition to your collection!

Did I say glorious? I meant GLORIOUS!! It's so elegant and beautiful. I know you spent hours and days and months looking at CADs, trying to find the perfect proportions. And you were successful! My favorites are the neck shots, even though you are voting for the ring. It looks so nice on her beautiful neck! Congratulations!
by Slick1 » Aug 12, 2019 at 7:21 AM
Wow fabulous. What a wonderfully clever way to have two pieces of jewelry. That stone is absolutely delicious and the finger coverage is incredible. As is the neck coverage. Congratulations for an incredibly wearable piece of art! Hope your DW enjoys wearing this one-of-a-kind beauty!

O M G that is totally amazeballs!
by prs » Aug 12, 2019 at 11:45 PM
Thank you so much suzanne. I only prefer the ring because I think I'll get to see it more often than as a pendant.
Actually the perfect proportions came early in the design process. The fun began when we realized the size and shape of our stone required a completely new ringdant design! I know we didn't break the record for the highest number of CADs, but we came pretty darned close. The end result sure justified all the effort.
