So was that a reworking of a ring you had already? We're the stones just added?PattyCo|1470957626|4064955 said:Here is a CAD I got from Wink during the creation process. I hope it shows up so you can see it. Your idea to do the same with your grandmother's ring is going to be beautiful!
I love it as is. I just know my Grandmother would have expanded on it if she had the money while she was alive.Chrono|1470958939|4064964 said:Vesper,
What you plan to do is admirible and sweet, but I think her ring is so gorgeous as it is. I love it!
This is a good point.qubitasaurus|1470977576|4065040 said:I could be wrong, but I thought there was a very recent post that discussed adding side stones to an existing solitare setting. The conclusion was that frankensteining the ring was a bad idea -- it was substantiated by some discussion about whether the paritcular aloy used to build the baskets would meld well with the existing alloy in the shank.
You are right. I love it! I love all the sparkleNsmike|1471041057|4065278 said:Vesper, I suspect that the sparkle of the Jackie-O ring will still entice you. Keep the photo and concentrate on the marquise cut diamonds over the top of the green stone. I would think that you could get load of sparkle by doing that around a single stone on both top and bottom with some additional melee on the shanks. The real trick will be in selecting a sparkling colored center stone that isn't overpowered by the diamonds.
Thanks for posting this. I would love to see a sketch of a single stone adaptation, with a colored center stone of about one caret, perhaps a dematoid or merelani mint. I think that, scaled down, it would still be very sparkly, without needing the income of a Kennedy to afford it.Pyramid|1471054144|4065346 said:Found from a Google image search, this version has fancy cut stones though.
Gives an idea of how big the centre stones may be in proportion to the marquises, so maybe need smaller marquises..
