Hi all.

This begins with a late art deco ring I have had for years, that was one I always really loved. Easy to wear, pretty geometric details, and comfortable.

I picked it up years ago on Ruby Lane for a very good price and it was my usual go to travel ring as well! This is the ring.

I purchased an antique oval from Sako over a year ago. The oval is 1.37 ct and if you know anything about antique stones, you know old cut ovals are so hard to find.

This is my stone unset.

I asked him to take my old ring and recreate it. To make it better, more refined and just rescale as needed.

Here are Sako's photos of the finished ring.

I think he nailed the finishing and the reproduction! So, it is a duplicate of what I already had, with a larger stone and footprint.

Ring is two tone, 18kt white and yellow gold. There are .47 cts of old cuts in the frame.

More pictures to come.

Your idea to riff off of your original ring for the oval diamond was incredibly smart and a fantastic choice.
Sako’s interpretation and implementation of that idea is incredibly wonderfully done.

enjoy this beauty :love:

It's like when you're vacationing in a quaint little town, and you stumble upon the most charming little antique shop, and everything they have is amazing, and THAT'S the ring you expect to see in their showcase. Just full of delicate, beautiful detail, and everything exactly as it should be.

I think he did a beautiful job. Wear the old one for travel and wear the new one for everything else! They are both beautiful.

Thank you! I agree- plan to keep the old for travel, when that finally happens again!
Love it! I think he did an amazing job with your instructions!
Thank you- he does excellent work!

wow, love the design! Congrats!

❤️ It's a pretty design. I have always liked it.
It is beautiful!
Thanks lady! Hope you are doing well!

They did a great job!! That’s a beautiful ring!!
He did a wonderful job- very happy with it!

This ring is perfect. What a beautiful reproduction (I know how hard it is, this looks spot on antique). Enjoy your treasure!

A good reproduction IS hard! I agree- he executed this so well. Thanks for such a nice comment!
It looks so flattering on you! And he did a great job as always
❤️ I just wish I had your finger size. Then it would be massive!

It’s a perfect version of your ring for your oval! Sako did a fantastic job, scaled it perfectly and finished it beautifully.

Your new ring is awesome!!

Sako really did a fantastic job with recreating and scale for the bigger diamonds. I am so glad you post everything you have him do. You inspired me to reach out to him! And your collection is simply amazing!
