So I'm so excited to share with you guys! Many of you know my story (debacle) with the previous jeweler my wonderful fiance hired to custom design my celtic engagement ring. Long story short, we were shorted on the sidestones (finace got his own center stone), one was chipped, the ring was nothing like the drawing he OK'd and he wasn't happy with the end result, or the second time around of them trying to fix it. Basically it looked like a birds nest and we weren't happy with the customer service at Raru (Designet) either.

So fast forward - we find this awesome jeweler in Red Bank, NJ. Joel McFadden Designs. They custom do our wedding bands right down to the very minute details that my fiance drew for them! They came out SOOOOOOOO incredible that we decided they were going to re do the E-ring as well so its done right, my fiance would finally be happy with it, and it matches the set perfect. Plus we ordered new trillion side stones straight from Trillion in NY.

So the center is the same one as before. Just over a carat E VS1 and now the sidestones are 4mm ~.25 carat each D (yes D!!!) SI1, but completely eye clean!

WELL, we picked it up Sat and it BLEW MY MIND! Even better than my wildest dreams and I HAD to share with everyone here! You guys were so helpful and supportive with the ring that went wrong that I really really wanted to show you when it went right!

So w/o futher ado.... here is the CAD:

WOW! I wasn''t here for the beginning debacle, and I always thought your ring was so unique and beautiful. But this just blows the old one out of the water! It looks incredible dear! Elegant and just uniquely amazing! Congrats to your fiance for persevering until he was satisfied!

Wow. You can really see the difference in the workmanship. The old one was pretty, but with the new one side by side- well, there''s no comparison. The nice/attractive elements in the original are obviously because the design was a neat one regardless, but with a polished execution, it''s truly amazing. I love the way the wedding band slides in. (My mom''s e-ring is also a yellow gold celtic knotwork piece, she''d totally drool over yours!)

Oh WOW - I thought the first one was lovely, but there is just no comparison! The detail is so much more polished, the trillions look fantastic, and I LOVE how the shank looks on the sides - much more fluid. I''m so happy your ring is everything you wanted it to be!!!

Last one for now. This is the most dramatic. The old ring and the new one side by side. My fiance says this new one is FINALLY how he really wanted it! That makes me giddy to finally hear. What a relief!
What a dramatic difference. It looks much more polished and very elegant. Its such a beautiful ring.. !!!
Agreed! That is an amazing design and it''s so beautiful on your finger.

Now that''s taking custom to a whole new level! It came out great. I love the substantial v-tip prongs and the celtic knots on the ends are a beautiful touch. It''s really beautiful and the inserted wedding band just puts the cherry on the sundae.
