Hi friends, I just got married this past December and my dh and I popped into NYC for the day! We hoped to see some of PS vendors on here but realized we need to make an appointment. So we wandered around and found this gorgeous pink sapphire! This will be a rhr most likely not worn with bands. It's about a 1.5 ct pink sapphire cushion. I know its heated and it may not be the best quality but it was a fun time and we got the sapphire for a great price. So I would love a ring that's sparkly, romantic, flirty and feminine. I've contacted DK and he sent me some halos that I really like. I'm open to suggestions and ideas. Here's the sapphire. 20200104_095217.jpg 20200104_095249.jpg 20200104_095006.jpg

I'm leaning towards a halo of diamonds and or pink sapphires. So if anyone has any great ideas let me know! Otherwise I'll update this post as I get a drawing. Thanks for looking!

I'm thinking the style I linked, inner halo white diamond, outer halo pink sapphire. And well, my personal choice for the stones in the band would asymmetric, such as left upper diamond, left lower pink sapphire, right upper pink sapphire, lower right diamond. I hope this makes sense!

Ok I love the setting! But I'm not quite following the order. Sorry! Do you mind explaining. I understand the inner halo white diamonds and outer halo pink sapphires.

Hm, though after seeing it this way, maybe my idea of doing asymmetric colors in the bands may not be so good after all. You can do all diamonds or alternate the sapphires and diamonds used in the bands.

You are so sweet @voce thank you for taking out of your day to draw this beautiful ring! Now I get it! That's a great idea:D I kind of like alternating diamonds and sapphires on the band.

This is it!!!! I love this ring. I love the diamond band. I think the rose gold prongs are kind of nice, might blend in nicely with the pink sapphire. I like the way the sapphire is set. And the halo is stunning. I think we are getting there!!! Thank @dk168 you're so sweet to find this for me. It's perfect! Nice and blingy and a showstopper! That's what we need for a sapphire from NYC!

Oh yes that's gorgeous @bling_dream - IIRC I think DK has made a similar ring. Even if he hasn't I'm sure he could do it. Looking forward to seeing it!

Oh those are beautiful! Thank you @whitewave you're so sweet to help me. David is drawing up some designs now. He wants me to focus on one lol but I love them all and want a blend in a way.

If you tell us the price of the pink, we can give you a hint if its flaws pay for the discount. Should you like to know. We might ruin your project, then better no asking.

I really like the halos where the diamonds are slightly "under" the colored stone like the stone is lying on a bed of diamonds, and open to light play (versus being bezeled). Good luck!

Ok spill it. I'm learning about CS but do not know much. I'm sure its heated. Pd $100. Trying to decide how much money to put into the setting.

That seems a not-a-rip-off price to me. I would set it in silver with white zircons. In your place, if I go for the full bling treatment, I'd want to use an even better center stone. The reason I suggested the stock setting I did is because I don't think your pink sapphire measures up to the pink sapphires in many of the inspiration photos that others link, and when there is so much focus on the center stone in a classic halo, I'd want a more flawless stone. As it is, your pink sapphire is silky and has a window, so it wouldn't match the brilliance of the diamonds.

Can't be wrong for $100 unless synthetic.
