    I didn’t think this day would come but it has. I would like to share my brand spanking new Harry Winston inspired setting made by Maytal Hannah. This is an extremely delicate ring with a very thin 1.5 mm shank. Maytal provided amazing after sales care in which I think is second to none. She is very accommodating, easy to talk to and very easy to work with. When I say that Maytal is not happy unless you are happy, I truly mean it as I have not met another jeweler who cared so much for our happiness. The stone is an 8 thin main modern cushion that was sourced by Mark at Engagement Rings Direct.

    Diamond Specs
    Cushion Brilliant
    Measurements: 6.87 x 6.83 x 4.66 mm
    Carat Weight: 1.52
    Color Grade: G
    Clarity Grade: VS1
    Depth: 68.2 %
    Table: 58 %

    Ring Size: 2 7/8

    Up first is the glamour show of the ring taken by Maytal Hannah. If you compare this ring to the Harry Winston stock photo, they bear a strong resemblance.

    My photo shoot

    This is a photo I took with a wooden rose. The lighting was not great in my house but I love this photo.

    love it! :love: I got a quote awhile back from Maytal and she was affordable as well as super friendly and responsive! Glad to see more of her work here! We need hand shots! It must look huge on your lil finger!

    Hi Charmypoo,

    Your ring is simply gorgeous :love:

    Wow!!!! you waited a whole year, how did you manage to do that without going bonkers :twirl:

    Although I have not had the chance to work with Maytal on a project, I hope to do so in the near future. She has been more than helpful in answering my email inquiries :)

    I would love to see hand pics when you get a chance to post :appl:

    Enjoy!!!

    LM

    Charmy, it is quite simply gorgeous! I like Maytal's version better that the Harry Winston. I love the roundness of the band. It is
    wonderful, and I am so glad you finally received it!!!!

    My goodness girl, you have the tiniest fingers ever!!! That ring has got to be quite a stunner on you!!

    Best of health and happiness!

    Thank you AprilBaby, SparkleNut, SparklyOEC, ForteKitty, Autumnovember, Blackpaw, gemgirl, Yssie, tigian, success and luv2sparkle for all your compliments. It is greatly appreciated.

    lizzyann01 - Maytal is very friendly and really easy to work with. Some designers don't like taking direction from us but Maytal is really open to suggestions and will also give you feedback. No hand shots for now as I just can't seem to hold up the digital SLR, focus and take a photo of my own hand. The camera is too darn heavy! I will have to see if the future hubby will help. The ring does look really huge on my finger - maybe too huge as I am not used to it.

    TruLuv858 - Believe it or not .. I actually miss my first setting. It has grown on me and now it is gone forever. The first setting was also made by Maytal Hannah.

    blackberry16 - I will absolutely post in the thread.

    libramom - I wasn't actually without my ring for a full year (just several months). It took me a whole year to decide what to do!

    Charmy, your ring is completely gorgeous!!! Maytal's version is a vision! Although I like the picture of the first setting too.

    I am, however, really perplexed by those "pictures" that look like they are drawings or artist renditions. Your pictures are much prettier than the Glamour Shot.

    I find the professional shots a little fake looking too. You can't see the details. I am attaching the original raw shot from the professional and then their cleansed shot.

    Beautiful ring. I actually like that version better than the HW version. The halo is just so delicate and pretty.
