SQUEEE! The CADs for my reset by Daniel M. are in! I wanted to get y'all's opinion before sending in my final go-ahead. It will be in 18k yellow gold, size 10.5 to fit my middle finger, all OEC. MM sizes are (about) as follows: 3.3 - 4.5 - 5.75 - 6.2 - 5.75 - 4.5 - 3.3. I've included photos of the stones in their original settings as well. They are all VS clarity and I/J color (my photos are not the best).

I think it’s very pretty design and I can’t wait to see the finished product. 18k yellow crowns and OEC’s - my fave!

since you are asking for opinions :

have you had a ring before that had this much of a perpendicular prong right inbetween your fingers?

Good point @Rfisher makes here. Perhaps have him add a slight cathedral from the shank up to that end prong to smooth out the area?
It’s gonna be gorgeous!!!

I have not - so that is a very good point. Thank you!

‘point’ :lol:
It may really come down to how that prong is finished?
Hard to tell and everyone has their own tolerances of whats ok feeling inbetween the fingers.
I don’t know if he does do plastics to try on? (The word for that is escaping me right now)
Also - eight prongs on a 3.3 mm stone may not be uncomfortable/pointy on your next finger at all?

Here’s what a slight cathedral at that spot might look like

But it definitely needs to be small, coming up between two prongs, you don’t want it coming up high, I think?

Are you not worried it’s going to be prickly / uncomfortable? I know CADs aren’t wholly representative though.

Ooh, we are going to need so many pictures!
As long as the prongs are uniform and not too thick they should feel okay. You'll just feel the puffy crowns. The cathedral will make a difference in comfort as well, much less likely to dig that way.

I just love graduated stone rings and I'm so excited to see a beautiful OEC one!

I had asked for softer claw-style prongs so I think it should be okay. I don't usually notice when my other rings slip between my fingers (which I'm hoping the euro shank will prevent spinning)
