    See my other threads regarding the Alexandrite I purchased to make a ring.
    The final ring is done from the designer and I couldn't love how it turned out more.
    Wanted a simple design that's all about the stone!! My wife loves it!

    No wonder she's over the moon about her ring -- and it truly reflects the thoughtful, caring attention you gave to this gift!!

    Beautiful gemstone. Where did you buy that Alexandrite? Is it genuine Earth-mined Alexandrite? How many carats is the stone?

    I love the look of a halo with a plain shank. It’s just perfect!

    It was from someone who was selling the loose stone. It came out of an old engagement ring which never happened and was in a safe for many years.
    I was looking quite a while for the perfect stone and when I saw this one, I knew I needed it. All other alexandrite we're oval or round and I wanted sonesomet even more unique.
    The stone was purchased back in 1997.
    I consider myself lucky I found the stone when I did.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. I couldn't be more happy with the results!!!
    The color change in the setting is still quite strong and the mixed light color is amazing!
    I had a great time finding the right design.

    It is a nice combination of simplicity with pizzazz. Very pretty! I’m sure your wife will have a hard time not admiring it all the time when she wears it.
