    Well, ok, it's afternoon by now... but... come meet my lovely new bit of sunshine!

    Oval purchased from Alex Park (same place as Uni came from) and set by David Klass (who also set Uni -- as you can see, I'm a one trick pony!). The oval is just amazing -- gorgeous saturated color throughout and no bow tie whatsoever!

    The color changes a lot in different light, and it's generally lighter than what I can capture in photos. The kites... oh la la! David brought in six different matched pair choices and the ones I went with are very white and I love the shape.

    The milgraining; the engraving on the band... what can I say? Perfection, as only DK can do it!

    The weather outside may be frightful, but inside it's just delightful!

    it’s amazing! Love the double milgrain and the richness of the gold and engraving! Just wow!:love: I’m loving the center stone and the variation of colors it brings in. I can only imagine how mesmerizing it must be on your finger. The size and the unique sidestone paring is fantastic!

    Sorry for going MIA there -- I was on gift wrapping duty while TR took the kids to a movie!

    InsecureSweetGirl, thanks for the reminder about the DK thread. I don't think I've added Uni either.

    HS4S_2 - the color is so hard to capture! I'll have to take some more pics tomorrow in good light.

    MGR - I vowed never another oval after my last one, but when I saw this... :love:

    D&T - I've looked at your ring a zillion times while I was waiting for this one to be done! Love your yellow!

    OboeGal - I'm mad for bezels lately! Especially since I'm so hard on my jewelry. I've chipped my sapphire twice and also a stone on my eternity band (before I got it reset) so I feel more comfortable going this route.

    Dandi - I've always loved kites and I figured this was my chance! Don't get me wrong; I did ruminate on every other possible side stone, but something just kept whispering "Kitttttttes..." in my ear!

    Rubysweettart - I do confess I've done a fair amount of staring at it today!

    MakingTheGrade - the center is a 3.02 fancy brownish yellow. I don't have the GIA cert with me and I can't remember much more off the top of my head... Senility at 48 is a terrible thing!

    Kristydarling - I do feel like it's a piece of art! David's work is so amazing.

    Thank you ecf!

    foxinsox - I fell in love with the center stone about 3 seconds in the first time I watched the video of it sparkling between those tweezer tongs!

    Fiona - the center is indeed a chameleon! My photos truly don't do it justice.

    Marcy, it really is perfect! Every detail is just astonishing!

    Lovedogs - thank you, it is pretty marvelous!

    Catmom - I think of you and your gorgeous yellow ever time I look at Sunny! How do you get such good pics though? I can't seem to capture the color accurately no matter what I try... ?

    Alex T - Buttery! Yes!

    Missy - Can't wait to show this to you next time I'm out east!

    Kayla - David did an absolutely perfect execution of my idea. He is just amazing!

    Thank you Lisa!

    Nala - no occasion and I'm sorry to report no interesting backstory either... I am boring when I comes to jewelry! I've just been thinking about a yellow off and on for... oh... about 20 years now, but the "perfect" stone never came around to me. I don't like the really light yellows with my skin so when this one popped up withe deeper darker color and a shape that appealed to me, well it really caught my attention. I also hesitated about the 18 kt yellow gold against my skin, but I can't imagine having set this stone in anything else, and I like the contrast with the really white kites.

    Just tried taking a few more pics. Let me see if any of them are good enough to post.

    Ahhhh, finally brought you over to the dark yellow side, lol! It's not easy getting pics. Maybe one out of every 10 or more is halfway decent and true to color. I find dappled sunlight is usually good for shots.
