    Last year I bought a gorgeous, R colored 1.97 AVC. It's spready for a cushion - 7.55 x 7.35 - and that perfect AVC shape.

    I shipped it off to DKJ and at the same time contacted Yoram at Gem Concepts, asking if he'd be able to supply me with 2.7mm melee of a matching color. I had gone back and forth with the idea of bright white, contrasting, surrounding stones, but in the end couldn't get past the mental picture of a ring that reminded me of dawn across the ocean on a summer's morning - that beautiful golden wash of color. Neither Yoram nor I thought it would be easy to find melee of that tone, but suddenly a parcel of warm OECs crossed his path, and he snapped them up, re-cut them, and they were on their way out to me in a matter of a couple of weeks.

    And let me just take a moment to confirm what everybody else says; Yoram is a gentleman and a master of his craft. And his prices - most surprisingly to me - were excellent. I will definitely do business with him again. When my diamonds were held up in US customs, he went above and beyond, doing all that he could to successfully get them delivered to me while keeping stress at a minimum. As I said - he's a true gentleman.

    Once DKJ received the melee, it was a straightforward process to them to bring this beautiful ring to life, and this evening I received the attached video. The ring will reach me on Saturday morning, and she will be a glorious addition to my collection.

    @Rhino - thank you for this STUNNING diamond, and for all your help in getting it onto my finger! August Vintage is the shizzle, baby!
    @diagem - thank you for those perfect little masterpieces and for all your help at a stressful time.

    And to DKJ, as always - perfect!

    And now the video!

    Oh man, you've done it again! What a beauty! The rich yellow gold and the tiny fat prongs, the sleek shoulders, it's absolutely stunning. (I feel like I'm trying to describe a beautiful woman....)

    Thank you, @bludiva - I will!! :mrgreen:

    Thank you, @Queenie60 - I'm really happy with how this came out. it has a unique warmth to it that makes it feel very 'lush'. Love that about it!

    Thanks, @ceg! I remember yeeeears ago, seeing a Leon ring with thumb-print style shoulders, and I absolutely loved it! It was very soft and sleek, with no hard angles. We combined that look with inspiration from M2C's Bella Flora shank and some of CvB's inspiration as well, to make something softer and more organic with its own personality. I love how it came out!

    Thank you, @Wewechew! :wavey:

    @princessandthepear - it really is luscious, isn't it? it makes me want to dive right in!

    Thank you, @LinSF - I'm pretty gobsmacked myself! I knew how I HOPED it would turn out - but you're never 100% sure you're on the right path till these things are completed. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw this one!

    Thank you, @Rfisher! You've got something gorgeous going on yourself! Any news on the three stone?? Did you get the setting of the sides resolved?

    Laughing here, @Volvoqueen! I shall do my best not to disappoint you! :))

    Hi @Polished :wavey: I love clusters also, but I wanted to steer away from a daisy effect, so I asked DKJ to set the cluster so it followed the outline of the cushion, rather than turning into a circle around a cushion. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. :))

    @Matthews1127 - I'm glad you like it! It really was a triple collaboration - that's exactly the right description for it! I am SO pleased to have it and will feel like a very lucky girl when I have it on my finger!

    @missy - lol - you are such a silly! Thank you for your kind words. I'm really glad I went with OECs that are re-cuts from antique stones. It gives my new ring a little history and some real heart. I suspect you know all about that with your gorgeous pieces. :))

    Thanks, @kathley! Consider me stunned, also!

    Hi @Rpb. Your post made me want to ask you to describe your dream ring. Are you hoping for a cluster one day? For warm stones? For a yellow gold setting? I'd just love to hear your mental image of what equals sublime. :kiss2:

    Hallo, @MissGotRocks! Truth be told, I have guests arriving at the airport at 6.30am on Saturday, and staying till Tuesday evening. I'll try to get some photos up before then - hopefully Saturday. I have to say, I'm more keen than anyone to see this on my hand!!

    I was waiting with bated breath for this @mrs-b! It is so luscious and buttery! The cushion and it’s babies are just perfect together..and the yellow gold is so lovely with them. Gorgeous!

    I do have to update my thread-no desire to spam yours!
    Was this ring done with DK's top of the line bench as well?
    Dang - it's gorgeous. Those halo stones (and their story) really are the icing.
