HI:

My MIL passed away several years ago and left an emerald ring to my DH. He doesn't wear rings other than his wedding band, so the ring sat and sat and sat. He wanted me to enjoy it, so I had it reset. My MIL wore the old ring all the time; it was very well loved.

I have some pictures--forgive me for my usual mess. LOL.

HI:

The emerald was purchased over 30 years ago in Colombia. It is 4.71 ctw. The reset is in 14K yellow gold with a black rhodium bezel. I wear on my right hand, pointer finger.

I am very happy with the reset!

cheers--Sharon

Sharon, this stone is STUNNING. It is everything I would want in an emerald: the shape (obviously) the size, the neon & the Jardin.

I think you have done this beauty proud with the reset. She's a sizeable stone of greeny goodness & looks beautiful on you x

Thank you. This ring looks very well on his hand. He may reach for it anytime, but unlikely. Rings aren't his thing!

It’s turned out beautifully @canuk-gal, I’m so glad you’re happy with it. I love the simplicity of the elegant setting, it really let’s the emerald take front and centre stage.

@canuk-gal your new emerald ring turned out fabulous. It is such a luscious color of green and what a wonderful way to remember your mother-in-law. I'm glad you have such a special treasure.

You chose the perfect setting! That emerald looks like it glows! It’s so sleek and modern. Enjoy @canuk-gal :wavey:

Thank you! I had minimal requests for my bench: set east-west, yellow gold + bezel, and split shank. It was easy for me!
