Congratulations on 25 years!! I love the baguettes on your setting. I also love how the old cuts don't show as much warmth. Definitely warmer than your F - but not as much as you'd think going from F-M.

Happy Anniversary! Twenty-five years is worthy of a Josephine (aka Josie)! It turned out BEAUTIFUL (oh, and ginormous!!).

As for the emerald cut... since I’m super not creative, I have named her Emmy (as in Emerald). You’re welcome :lol-2:

My 25th anniversary ring by Daniel M is finally done and I am just over the moon!

Many thanks to the PSers who gave me design advice along the way-I appreciate you all (especially the OEC Insta Posse). A special thank you to @missy for holding my hand throughout this process.

Stats: 4.11 ct M VS1 OEC set in Platinum with .76 cts I/J Full Cut Melee

Introducing Josephine aka Josie:

Apologies for my less than perfect manicure. And try to envision Josie on longer more elegant fingers than mine ;-)

The gallery-I decided to go with a wave pattern like @maryjane04's ring because I love the ocean.

p.s. @yssie you were right! Finding well matched lower color single cut melee was a challenge!

So beautiful!!!!!! Congrats! I have loved that setting too!

Congratulations on your gorgeous 25th Anniversary ring! What a way to commemorate this huge milestone and welcome to the OEC club. I will probably do the opposite and join the Emerald club for my 25 :)

Ahh, when I saw the ring on IG, I wondered if it was yours or if someone else had seen your inspiration ring! So happy for you that you were able to make the setting that you loved for your OEC! Happy anniversary!

Thanks so much @diamondseeker2006 ! This ring really exceeds my expectations-it just makes my anniversary even more special :D

First, happy anniversary and congratulations on 25 years of married life. And HOLY CANNOLI Batman, the stone and the ring are stunning. I'm happy I was wearing my drool bib when I looked at the pics.

@Matata thanks so much! I'm on cloud nine :)

How gorgeous! I LOVE the way the baguettes are set! Happy Anniversary!

Thanks @MjK1 ! This is my first halo and Deco style ring. I was a little nervous, but I love the way it turned out.

Happy 13th Anniversary and what a way to commemorate it. :kiss2: Congratulations on finding your holy grail stone and setting. The journey has been worth the effort and the wait. Wear in health for many years to come.

Thanks so much @LLJsmom ! I couldn't have done it with the help of many PSers. I'm so happy to finally have my own OEC ring :)

Aww that is beautiful! Like another daughter :)

I think the emerald is modern so deserves a modern name. I am channeling Angelina or Jennifer hahahaha!!!!!!

Now I have an heirloom ring for each daughter! It took me forever to decide upon a name for this ring. But I think you may be on to something, I don't think Angelina will work but maybe Jolie bc the emerald cut has brought me so much joy...=)2

Holy gigantic old cut diamond perfection! That is AMAZING finger coverage, massive presence; a completely perfect “modern retro” heirloom. (I would love to see a video and more hand shots, but I haven’t read your whole thread yet.) Your design choices have been spot on. Your ring is gorgeous.

Congrats on your 25th anniversary and your gorgeous new ring! It looks fabulous on you and I love the setting!!

Thanks so much @MissGotRocks ! The process took longer than I expected so I started to second guess the deco setting but I'm so happy that I stuck with it.
