OK, you guys have been with me every step of the way, and I truly thank you ALL! But special thanks MUST go to Mara and Alex (Demelza), who REALLY put up with my insanity and helped me create the rings of my dreams. xoxoxox!

These rings are just so beautiful and I love them. WF was so patient with me, and worked so hard to make my vision a reality. John was wonderful, as was Leon and the whole rest of the WF team. (But I''ll bet they are ALL gladgladglad that this project is *DONE*! Remember the monks in Ace Ventura/When Nature Calls???!!
)

The rings: Fishtail pave, .02 ACA melee, custom made by WF. (And just wait till you see the HEAD! *swoon!*) Finished width: 2.1 mm. Ring size: 4.75.

Center stone: (Nothing new here!
) My beautiful AGS-0, H&A, 2.36 J/SI2)

Well, without further adieu, let''s get to the photos...

Shall we start with the wax models?

o, oh, oh! The head is soooo pretty!
And, thanks, btw, for that thread about heads in RT. Very informative.
Can you post a before & after pic?
I remember the before and, at the time I thought it was so pretty- why would you want to change it?
But now I see !!!
very very nice!!

I really like the setting you choose for your diamond!! I like how your ring sits fairly low, yet instead of having a basket with the bar horizontal, I like the delicate detail of the design. Beautiful! And more pics definately!

Haha! My husband says he would really like to meet you in person, Mara. He wants to shake your hand, and then wrap both of his tightly around your neck...
JUST KIDDING!!! *kiss!*

I love how low the diamond sits, too. That''s one of the things I was always stressing to WF. I wanted the head to be short and spready ("squatty"!), with the diamond set as low as possible. It''s such a unique look, I think... and I LOVE it! They did SUCH an awesome job!

I think this photo shows it off nicely!
