I've tried posting this at least five times at this point, and I can't figure out for the life of me how to turn the pictures right side up, so forgive me if they're all sideways. Extremely frustrating.

This arrived today...I missed this stone! Hadn't seen it since the spring. Some of you might remember my holy grail violet sapphire, from Gene (I call it violet, he called it purple - it's a shifter, for sure!). It's just over 6 cts and about 9.7 mm. It is a deep stone (8.1 mm), so the ring sits up pretty high, which I will have to be careful with. The ring has both rose cut and brilliant cut pears. It was designed by Elle W and made by David Klass. My second ring of three by this team!

Oh my goodness, NKOTB that ring is incredible! I love the Elle & DK combination that I've been seeing on the boards lately.

It's such a wonderfully designed piece, you must be thrilled! I hope you love it!

I usually don't pay much attention to settings, but this one is amazing in every way (as is the stone). Love how the placement of the pears..the combination is amazing.

Thanks, lovedogs and lilmosun! I wanted something somewhat understated, so I could still wear such a big stone on a more frequent basis (though it also crossed my mind to do some crazy halo bling blang, lol). One of Elle's talents is putting something slightly off the beaten path into a setting, so it can be simple, yet unique.

NKOTB,
Another gorgeous ring from you. I bet that's a sparkler, and such a lovely setting.

What a stunning ring :love: :love: :love: Gorgeous sapphire and a very chique setting. I love the color, cut, size and shape of the sapphire. It feels right at home in that beautiful setting. Love the rose cut pears in the profile.

Can you post a group pic of your DK/ElleW rings and what do you have in the making?

Beautiful ring! :clap: :love: I wondered where that sapphire went and what it's been up to. ;-) Hopefully it feels as good as it looks on your finger. I'm sure the height will take some adjustment - my Gene tourmaline did - but you'll get used to it. Congrats on another very successful project, NKOTB!

Ok NKOTB. Just WOW WOW WOW

You have such a keen eye for color and cut (not just this sapphire but all your gems.) You collaborate so well with designers. You take chances. You have exquisite taste

Ok now for this particular ring- I love how it doesn't look like anything I've seen before. Each view (top and both profiles) are so different but part of a cohesive whole. Congratulations.

This one is a jaw dropper!!!

Incredible, honestly. IMO it's one of the nicest pieces I've seen here in awhile, which is saying a lot. I feel like you really went for it on this one and it shows!!

Gorgeous setting! What is your ring size? What is the size of pears?

Her ring size is a 5.

And since she doesn't actually know the size of the pears, I can answer that. The shoulder pears are 2x3, and the rose cut pears are .47ct G color, VS clarity 5mm x 4mm. The total diamond carat weight is .90, VS, GH.

The sapphire is 6.2 cts, 9.7 mm. So the total weight for everything is 7.10ctw.

Also, the rise off the finger is about 9-9.5mm. It wasn't measured before it was shipped off.

Wow that is one of the most stunning gemstone rings I've seen on PS! What a gorgeous saturated violet colour. The rose cut pear is divine.
