HI!!! I am SO excited to share my long-awaited wedding ring project with you guys! I have been beside myself with anticipation, and it finally finished this week in time for Christmas. I can hardly contain myself!!!!

First, a video and IG post:



As some background, I lost my wedding ring earlier this year, and it was a LONG journey to figure out what I wanted to replace it with. I was all over the place - did I want an antique stone or a modern super ideal? I love so many styles, and it was SO difficult to hone in on just one.

I had my eye on a magnificent 4.34ct D color antique asscher from the Art Deco era (some call it an Emerald, so I’ll go ahead and refer to it as an Asscherald). :D It has a lovely small table, cut corners, and crystal clear depths that are simply mesmerizing!!

I then stumbled onto the setting of my dreams which sealed the deal - it was actually somewhat reminicient of the ring I lost, but a MUCH higher end and far more beautiful version...my tastes have changed immensely (for the better) over the years. :lol: I customized the basket to better suit my style, and a star was born!

Here are a few more beauty shots - I won’t have the ring in my hands until tomorrow, so a million more photos to come!!

Omg that is the most amazing ring ever! I love the uniqueness of the halo and all the little designs. Your taste has refined over the years from what I gathered in your post. I can't wait to see the hand shots! Enjoy your beautiful new ring (and sorry you lost the old one).

Are those sizing beads I see? Could you share why you opted for them vs. a spring insert or other alternatives, and why you needed them? Are they comfortable and how uncomfortable is it to remove your ring as a result? TIA!

They’re called “eggs” - they are flatter than sizing beads, and they add a little weight to the bottom of the ring so it doesn’t spin (since it’s so top heavy). I get the ring tomorrow so I will let you know how it fits - but I sized up a tiny bit to accommodate for them. :)

I'm so happy you chose it @LoveMeDo !!! I kinda feel some FOMO!!! But I'm glad you snatched it up and gave me no option to look back! It's a gorgeous stone. Absolutely stunning, and Caysie's setting is perfect for it. Congratulations! I CANNOT wait for handshots!!
