Congratulations! This is a stunning ring - please will you start its own thread with heaps of pictures & details? Pretty please?!!
This is gorgeous! Your ring is a classic and elegant beauty. If you decide to do a reset, I would recommend that you keep the original setting, especially since it was your mom's.
I got my asscher a month ago and had it reset in this mounting, a mix of Art Deco with a little gallery airiness. I might be slightly obsessed!
Re: Emerald Cuts & Asschers - A Collection
My lil girl. She's only .60 ct (certainly small by PS standards).
I originally set out looking for a bigger rock. I pretty much had it in my mind that a step cut had to be bigger in order to show any "steps" or dimension. I was (happily) proven wrong.
I had tried on several at the same time, all bigger by quite a bit, but kept coming back to this one. I really know what it means now to have one "speak to me"... Her size on paper didn't matter. Her presence made her so much larger than the others.
The setting is 18k white gold, and she's a VS (there's a little metal from the setting showing thru...that's not an inclusion) and a nice white G in color (which I really love). Straight baguettes on the shank. The ring is likely from the 1940's, according to the estate jewelry shop where I bought it. Finger size is 6.
Anyway, I'm smitten in case it's not obvious. I don't think I could be happier. The photos aren't great and I was contorting my finger so looks a little funny, but hoping the photos (and blathering) will help others who are considering emerald cuts in the smaller sizes. (I plan to buy more bands and switch them out. Ones pictured are rose gold and platinum.)
