My original post is here: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/new-project-2ct-oval-semi-bezel-ring.252770/#post-4640668

Sorry to start a new one but I couldn't edit the title in case people were curious to see the end result.

So my jeweller rang to say that my ring was ready! I was about to contact him to see how he was progressing but he beat me to it. He did say over the phone that he wasn't able to get the two smaller diamonds set on the sides which disappointed me a little, but he said I was welcome to take a look at the ring first and see what we could do, perhaps with smaller stones.

Anyway, as soon as I saw her though, I knew she was perfect as she was. Simple was definitely best so I told my jeweller not to worry about the hidden stones. I was able to take her home later that day after a polish. I was so worried that his initial hand-drawn design was too simple but it's just right. The stone stands out enough as it is. It never seems as big loose, but set in a ring... wow!

I will try and take better photos later but these should give you an idea :D

My jeweller nailed the gold perfectly. It's 20K which he said is still durable enough but the colour is just that more rich. My inspiration was the lid of a Tiger Balm jar as it worked with the M colour stone so nicely. It's a beautifully weighty ring using all the gold I had lying around doing nothing.

Very happy. Still haven't told hubby who will find it difficult to believe this project cost under $4500

Oh, how beautiful! I love nice wide bands with a presence you can feel, and that gold is so rich. What a perfect ring.

Love it! Bezels are my jam and this is perfection! I also love a more substantial piece! The color of the stone and metal are so complimentary. Beautiful. Enjoy it!!

Absolutely stunning! The tone of the 20K gold is just perfect. And now I'm going to go find my little jar of Tiger Balm and hold it next to my M-color diamond.... :kiss2:

Thank you very much. I wondered about the wider band but it does feel good wearing it. Solid :D

Just beautiful & pretty, whilst looking durable & elegant! The 20k yellow gold was inspired - it looks perfect!
Thank you! I think that was my concern about using so much gold - that it would look too chunky and masculine but my jeweller and his partner nailed it. Yes, they also got the 20K right :)

Thank you! Ha ha - yes. I took it off as it doesn't quite work well as a set and I take better photos with my right hand. This ring will mainly be a RHR :)

Thank you! I did nearly consider a compass prong setting but there's something about bezels!

Thank you everyone! This is pretty much my 'forever ring' unless I win the lottery but I'm quite attached to the stone so it'll be worn with joy regardless of any future upgrades :D
