    So it was our first anniversary last weekend, and I finally got one of my lovely blue spinels cut by Dan Stair (can't recommend him enough, fabuolous to deal with, and I love all the stones I have from him) set into a ring.

    The stone is 1.44ct/6.99mm blue in daylight, a purple colour under incandescent light. My husband had the setting custom made (to my specs of course - provided with inspiration pics in a word doc) and I think it turned out beautifully!

    Without furhter ado here are some pics!

    Sheesh!
    BA, its simply Stunning !

    The stone, the ring, its perfection sweety!

    May I ask who made the setting, it looks very well crafted..
    And the stone looks like the facets of an OEC - is that what you were aiming for?

    I totally love it, congrats! [​IMG][​IMG]

    WOW that looks beautiful in the setting and may I also congratulate you on that as well. The setting looks very well made with sparkly white diamonds and great goldwork.

    Your ring is absolutely gorgeous. You are going to love wearing this beauty. Dan is amazing too - he cuts great stones and is so nice to work with.

    Your ring is absolutely stunning!! I can''t believe I am saying this, but I think I might like it better than the Tiffany aquamarine Legacy that I''ve been considering! I am more of a blue girl than the color of the Tiffany aquamarine. Can you tell me who did your setting?
