    WOW :D :D I just got these and can't believe how awesome they look. Who knew the cad's for my ring would come out so well :twirl:

    This is a combo of ideas & pics that I had. The prongs will be claw and there will be a ruby on the heart. She loves ladybugs, so thought it would be nice to add something for her. Do you think that will be to much?

    I wanted something comtemporary/modern looking and I think this will do :bigsmile: I like the look of channel, but she likes pave. I just want it to be secure. Is this the best way to do pave and it be secure, or is there another way to go? The center stone .81 H&A (missed out on a blue :( ) maybe if she wants an upgrade 1 day ;-) Platinum setting. Should I engrave it?

    Sorry for the large pics. Gotta work on size for next time. I'm just glad I figured out how to attach them at all :wink2:

    Tell me what you guys (ladies & gents) think. Thanks everyone for your help. This is a great place to learn!!

    It is really lovely. I think the ruby is a good idea. You've been wanting that from the beginning so I wouldn't change that. Do you want to engrave a message on the inside? That would be really sweet.

    I like everything just the way it is. I wouldn't add any more details (ladybugs) other than an engraved message inside, although only after you are 100% sure this is the right size. Have you thought about a band and how it will meet up with the ruby? BGD did a nice job on the proportions and you did a nice job on the design. Pave definitely works nicely with the cross-over band.

    I can only imagine!!

    I am stressing out big time with this purchase and have gone back and forth on a ton of things....

    Can I be extremely rude and ask what BGD quoted you for that setting?

    Hey JB4, not a rude question for me :)) I was quoted 3k for the setting. Platinum setting, pave 1/2 around, ruby in heart (no shown on CAD, may be hard to do), & a sapphire and peridot stones inside the band as surprise stones. Hope this helps you.

    Got to admit....that is a hell of a price for custom setting....especially platinum.

    You did a heck of a job designing the ring. Very very original idea.

    This is what I am going to be altering to make it exactly how I think the GF will want it:

    :wavey: Hi, welcome to the e-ring process. It's really not easy to buy for someone else, but I think I got it right ;)) That is a very nice setting you are going for. Good Luck with the process. It's a great feeling to create something for the one you :love: . The people here are wonderful when it comes to helping out.
