Good idea on the 24k cup! I’ll show you a picture of my inspiration setting (not my ring, but I love this and would like to do something in this vein):
Only change I might make is to perhaps make it a split shank, I’m not usually a fan of split shanks but I think it might make the ring more delicate with so much pave going on.
I think a split shank could be so beautiful! As soon as I read yellow gold cup in your original post I thought of this video I saw of Pablo cimadevila making a 24k yellow gold cup for a yellow diamond and nearly fainted at the final product:
They sent an email on Friday that my cluster ring is being set now! He also upsized my original platinum wedding band so hopefully those will be arriving in the next few weeks! He also sized up my mom's original solitaire ring and jacket and set it with a nice CZ for her to wear comfortably and she's received those already and is happy with them.
WW !!! You better do a thread in SMTB!
Oh my word, what a GORGEOUS ring! Words fail me!!!
What! I’ve been waiting for an update from you and I guess I missed that you received your cluster! It’s amazing! Gorgeous! Sublime! That finger coverage! Sorry if you’ve already mentioned, but what did you end up deciding with the butt gallery?
Thank you @lulu_ma @Yimmers! I probably won’t do a SMTB thread because I used lab stones for the cluster sides and I think they are considered unmentionables in that thread?
Thank you!! I’m still getting used to the size and definitely think in hindsight I might have done things differently but I do love it so much!
Ah thank you!! I can’t wait to see your 3-stone!!!
So.. I was all ready to go with the milgrain and then I saw the butt pic ( ) and decided to keep it polished and sleek:
Gah! It’s huge! You think DSS will ever set in?
