    Thank you nala! I knew it would be a long post so I am glad I waited until I had some time to really sit and do it right. :)

    Thank you kindly tyty! I'm both alternately pleased and relieved to finally have made a good resolution!


    You are too kind natasha-cupcake! (And your avatar is so delicious looking!!!)

    OK, this is officially one of my favorite sets on PS!!! The stone is a massive fireball, the details of each ring are so romantic, and it's non-matchy yet *perfectly* complementary....I love that aesthetic! Congratulations on your beautiful outcome! Your patience has paid off in a big way!! :clap:

    You are so kind KristyDarling! As soon as I put this all together, it felt like it had settled in and been there a long time, so I know it all worked out right in the end now. :)

    Well done @bunnycat !! Out of all the jewels on PS, this Van Craeynest band is one of my all time favorites! I first discovered it on the stack of the day thread and after much investigating I found out it was Van Craeynest. I love it because it is unique, dainty, floral and perfect. I did read, however, that you had some trouble finding a ring setting that looked good with it. Well, your new ring is just absolutely perfect with it! The history, the halo, the floral design - it checks every box. :love: I think this is one of the most perfect and unique sets on PS. The diamond is absolutely gorgeous! I'm so very happy that you are wearing your Van C band again, and that it has a perfect partner. Enjoy!!

    Thank you so much OdetteOdile! These two do indeed look really good together in a unique way! I'm not really a matchy kind of person, and they are different enough to each stand out to make me happy. :)

    Thank you kindly foxinsox!
    Many thanks tkyasx!

    Yaas- it's like Cinderella found her slipper, or Goldilocks found the "just right" match. :lol:

    Simply gorgeous! I had been eyeing that ring myself for a while because I absolutely loved the setting as well; I think we must have similar taste! So glad this went to a PS'er!
