@mrs-b your new ring will be spectacular, but I will miss the bezel. The bezel is so sublime...

Congratulations! This is a stunning ring - please will you start its own thread with heaps of pictures & details? Pretty please?!!

Thank you so much @Alex T :) I would love to start a thread and take some pics once my bandaid is off (on the index finger)! A few days before he surprised me I got a grease burn while cooking ;(

Thank you @Diamond Girl 21 !! I didn't think about what to do with the setting:) I guess I could put a colored stone in it at some point .

Yes, that's a great idea. Then, if you want, you can switch back to the original setting someday. If not, you have another great ring. Post pics if you decide to reset.

I got my asscher a month ago and had it reset in this mounting, a mix of Art Deco with a little gallery airiness. =)2 I might be slightly obsessed!

My first time on this thread and already reeling from so much beauty, I see your ring. You might have a lovely obsession but I just spent 20 min. staring at it. Past the sheer size and seeming complexity, it's a cohesive use of step cuts. (My obsession.) May I ask, where did the main stone come from and who designed and built this magnum opus?
Judging by your lovely hand, you're too young to remember Liz Taylor but if she'd seen this ring, she would have had one commissioned.

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. :D 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.)
