    Sally from Hearts if Water on Etsy sent me these pics of the completed ring!!!

    Awhile back I had asked for help in setting my holy grail black opal (well, my small holy grail, would love a bigger one some day!) with this antique emerald cut from AV. The opal is about 7x6 and the emerald is 6x5.

    After debating designs, I opted for this layout since it’s different from my other two toi et moi style rings. I know I know, I’m a magpie for rings.

    I asked if we could add some texture to the leaves either through etching or making it matte because the leaves read too “shiny” to me. But otherwise I love it!!!

    Yes. I finally caught the step bug.

    She is! I love her. Been ordering things from her for a decade now.

    Thanks! I picked a design that hopefully has a lot of hand presence! Fighting DSS

    You and me both. Waiting for the shipping from overseas is the only downside to working with sally and pomme

    Thanks! It took so long for me to figure out what I wanted so I’m hoping I love it! I definitely love both stones! I’ve missed them!

    Unique and interesting (I expect nothing less from you!) I agree some mattifying on the leaves would look cool. Love to see some hand shots when you
    get it!

    I am super excited! It’ll be another 2 weeks to get the leaves altered though. And then shipping. Etc. But I’d rather it be right than rushed!

    That is gorgeous and unique, thanks for showing it and I’m waiting for 1,000 hand shots. :mrgreen2:

    I think I’m going to do a moi et toi with my asscher cut emerald and a round diamond, so I am all about these tings right now. I love your design:love: and the stones are gorgeous.
