Thank you VapidLapid!VapidLapid|1309493831|2959640 said:cokitty, that is just perfect; elegant while understated. Excellent balance of colors, metal, bling and form. The stone is gorgeous; looks like a roger dery to me.
Laurie, the mounting actually is a recycle. I was given a ring several years ago, but a few years ago my hand got smashed between two CO2 tanks...my hand made it the stone in the setting did not. I kept the ring out of sentiment and when I saw that tourmaline on David's website, I wrote and asked him if his jeweler could make it work.JewelFreak|1309520162|2959751 said:That's beautiful!! The stone is wonderful & perfect in the setting. Where did you ever find that mounting?
I am not but the men in my family have all served and the vast majority of my friends are in now...I guess somethings you just pick up by osmosis.bluebirrrd|1309569149|2960309 said:I love it cokitty! Are you in the service by any chance? The camouflage idea was a great one I also love the split effect on the prongs. Those extra vertical lines give it an architectural/deco look that really suits the gem. Bravo!
Babynurse, the previous stone was a blue topaz, also an asscher cut. Sadly they are just not meant to stand up that kind of pressure.baby nurse|1309570077|2960319 said:It's really beautiful! I love the setting and particularly how the prongs complement the stone! May I ask what the previous stone was? Wonderful that you were able to recycle that ring.
