Almost 10 years ago I used the wisdom of PS research to upgrade my engagement ring center stone using Mark at ERD/BE. He found me a 1 carat elongated cushion that did not disappoint.

Coming up on 15 years of marriage, I had been hinting to my husband I’d like to have a halo. He gave me the green light on my birthday in February and I immediately messaged CvB. I knew I wanted french cuts and an unusual halo but the only example I found was VC’s decagon Tamara which I discovered on PS. It is an amazing piece but I just was drawn to CvB. She posted an Art Deco halo with a round on IG that had french cuts and I asked if she thought it would work for an elongated cushion. She was so excited to translate her design. Obviously Covid-19 has prolonged production times, but I got the first look photos tonight and am thrilled!! I knew only PS would understand.
I will try to include, my original setting with diamond before I shipped to Caysie, the CADs (which are a poor representation of her magic), the inspiration “Jolie” design and then my almost in my hands finished product!

That has to be one of the most dramatic remounts I’ve ever seen! It looks absolutely amazing! CvB does wonderful work, and that setting truly brings out the best in your diamond.
Thank you. When I bought it 10 years ago I knew I wanted an elongated cushion, so I was super surprised that Caysie suggested setting it EW and actually agreed. I’m so glad that she did. It’s my first custom design and I’m so happy with how it turned out! :kiss2:

Congratulations!
The diamond looks perfect snuggled in that setting! The transformation is night and day!
She does such beautiful work!
Enjoy that piece of art in health & happiness.
I’m with the others: when does it arrive? I want to see HANDSHOTS!
Will you wear a band with it? If so, one you already own, or will you have Caysie pair one for you?
This is so fun!!
I’m so happy for you!! :kiss2:
Cheers to 15 years!!! :cool2:

This is hands down the makeover of the century! The whole thing just glows!

Can't wait to see hand shots & to hear what you think of it when you get it :kiss2:

When does it arrive?
I don’t think she is shipping until next week since I’ve asked her to take a few photos with some of her bands before she sends it my way. I can’t wait for it to arrive!
