I've had this setting for quite a while, and as you can see from the last photo, the ring held czs, but the setting in a nice weight 14k wg. I got the mint tourmaline on one of Barry's drops a few months ago and just got the ring back from the jeweler last week. It's a very striking ring and I like the fact that it's not a common combo.

2.36ct - 8.7 x 7mm super nova oval. Per Barry "Mint Tourmaline...This medium/light minty green tourmaline comes from Mozambique. It is flawless at 10x and lively."

Tsavorites are matched set of 4mm ea - VVS stones.

Ah, so you're the one who got that mint garnet! I was seriously thinking about it for a while. Anyway, the ring looks stunning!

This was the one that was in the March 30th drop. I think he's had others, but I wanted one with no hint of blue and was pleased to see this one was even prettier than his picture.

I would never think to pair a lighter minty green stone with more chrome greens like tsavorites. Very nice combination, I like it very much, and I love that setting. Well done!! :appl:

Thanks TL! I was pleasantly surprised at how well they went together, and to have them fit an existing setting without having to redo any of the prongs made it even better.

Re: Barry Bridgestock mint tourmaline three stone w/ tsavori

Thanks again for the nice comments... yes, being the first to pull the trigger on a supernova isn't always easy. I think the reason I got lucky on this one is because his photo really didn't do the color any justice and I had to just trust his verbal description over the photo. This is the second stone that I have gotten from him that the color IRL was much nicer than in his photos.

Really, really lovely. I'm trying to design a three-stone ring with tsavorites and as a total newbie am completely confused as to what side stones would pair well but you have shown a gorgeous option. Thanks.
