    Treebean, Congratulations! What a wonderful surprise to see a brand new Leon today! Love it! That is one of the teenyest bands I have ever seen! So delicate and pretty. The upside down french cuts( i.e. with the point sticking up, for those of you who asked) is so unique, did Leon come up with that?

    I love it, it is gorgeous. Wear it in the best of health!

    Hi everyone thanks for all the comments!

    Dreamer- I was a little weary, about the daily use and taking gloves on and off etc. and when we commissioned the ring I made sure that Leon knew what my job was. The band even though thin is very sturdy. Impeccably made ring!

    Lynn B- Leon said that this was an antique parcel of stones and he calls them french cuts but he isn''t really sure what they are. He sets them in a channel upside down you can feel the points with you fingernail if you run them down the shank. On the micropave website he has an eternity band set that way. I believe the band is around 1.4mm wide. Now thats tiny!

    Luv- Leon suggested a couple of different type of side stones to us care (caree?) cuts and french cuts and then the mystery parcel. My fiance doesn''t like care (caree) so he showed us the band from the micro pave site and I really liked it. The sparkle is very cool and the stones are so tiny it''s had to distinguish them with the naked eye.

    Hi everyone

    Pixley- the stone dimensions are 6.65x6.29 x4.01
    polish very good
    symmetry good
    total depth 63.81%
    table percentage 54.05%
    M
    VVS2

    ImDanny- I really put my trust in Leon for the setting, I couldn''t picture it so when I opened the box I was shocked too! I really do like it. You have to be a Tudors fan with that Avatar, JRM is an excellent Henry.

    Your ring is so beautiful, Treenbean!!!! Congrats on your engagement! I was wondering if you knew how thin the band is. I''m thinking about thinking about getting a thin french cut eternity (right-side-up) with milgrain done by leon and the thickness (rather, thinness)of your band looks just SO perfect. [​IMG]

    Hi treebean [​IMG]

    Glad you love it! We did too. [​IMG] Thanks for the opportunity to serve. Your ring really came out so beautiful and the setting really balances the size of your diamond perfectly too. After yours shipped, it put my wife over the edge and she''s trading in her Hearts & Arrows round now. [​IMG]

    Thanks again everyone

    The thiness of the band is 1.4mm about.

    I really really wanted milgraining. Leon says he uses the finest milgrain cutter made.

    I am not a delicate person in general so wearing this ring is a little strange for me. But I look at it and I think it looks nice on my hand and I am glad we chose this one.

    Hi Rhino!
    I know you hear this a lot but I have to say it again. The diamond is beyond fabulous! I love love love the crown and pavilion facets, can''t stop looking at it. It outshines any ring I put it next to.

    Congrats to your lucky wife... You should post pics when the ring is done... [​IMG]

    Treebean it''s beautiful!

    GOG and Leon did an amazing job. I love the upsidedown french cuts - they pair well with the chunky facets and don''t outshine your centerstone.

    Delicious!

    It takes my breath away... he's a master. I love the upside down french cuts... if I wear a wedding band, it's gonna be that tiny Leon you mentioned. ( but 1st I'm gonna try wearing my ring alone like a good girl [​IMG] ) Man, does your stone face up nice!

    I'm dying... my ring is gonna be very similar to yours. same basic profile, millegrained sides, except that I had Leon source a center cushion, and in the channels I'm gonna have regular right side up french cuts - 5 to 6 each side. Seeing your little beauty is making me drool. Exquisite is sooooo right.

    You made a great choice and have a real showstopper [​IMG]
