Oh my gosh, it is beautiful!!!! You did a GREAT job. That first picture made the diamond look like it was a cushion cut. I actually like how the prongs make the stone look square sometimes.

Sure it isimpressive! Use it in good health.

I had to go over the past threads and tace the comming of age of your ring for myself.Some others asked for 'the specs'. So here are some. I wish Mark would be posting here sometimes

Specs... specs...

'Countingdown citing Mark':
1. First he said he has over 100 hours of time into the ring. (rare in 35 years of records!)
2. Its the most stones he has ever set in one ring with the total being 184.
3. He likes the most about is that it looks so delicate (while being) a monster with the center stone be almost 4 carats..
4. He said he cannot see from looking at the microscope til 530am this morning. LOL He was joking


The CAD looked a bit surreal... thinnish and high:

Bust the cast no longer so already!

And the ring, well, we know

RocDoc helped with the choice of the stone - just expert consideration and no hi tech cut grading machinery involved.. It won againt a 3 carat J-SI1 ACA contender (which also sold in the menatime, here it is). Side by side for the judges, the winning stone is on the right in the picture:

six.jpg


By stats and numbers numbers it is:
I-SI1, 3.70 cts
Depth 61.9
Table 56.00
Polish Ex
Symmetry Ex
Cutlet Small
Strong Fluorescence

The other technicals came from the appraisal: "AGS 2 because of the pavilion angle which is 41.7, in addition AGS would grade it very good straight across the board. There is defiantly hearts and arrows although not as much as some of these super ideal cuts." The looks made it the winner... saying allot about how important it is to see these stones !

This ring already has a journal of its own !

I'd bet you could propose over cold Starbucks cofee after working late into the night (if long hours ever happen to you guys) and it would be perfect.

Congratulations

I noticed the common reaction has rendered most of us close to speechless. It is an absolute masterpiece. Mark Morrell is indeed a master.

And the stone ain''t bad either.

Congratulations! Is there a full story posted anywhere?

One can tell that a lot of care has gone into the design and construction of this ring. Amazing work by a master in the trade!

Like others - one day I hope to have a Mark Morrell or Leon Mege piece!

This ring is truly a work of art! I can''t wait to see what it looks like on her hand. Congrats on a job well done - you obviously put alot of time and thought into selecting the stone and designing the setting. Your hard work really paid off!

Thanks again for all the nice compliments. I cannot wait to see it in person. Is it common that some woman do not want to wear a band? Also special thanks for Valeria for giving a great summary of the process.

I think we have run out of adjectives to describe this amazing ring. It is truly breathtaking and I am sure your fiance-to-be will be simply blown away by this beauty! There are some women who would prefer to wear their engagement ring alone especially when it is such an intricate design, but you would want to find out her preference. Some women wear their engagement ring on one hand and the wedding ring on the other. I''m sure you could get a band made to be worn with the ring if that is what she wants.

Except maybe you should advise some celebs on their rings. Definitely prefer yours to many celeb rings I''ve seen.

It''s nice to know that it''s ready.....

I''ll get to be the first person besides Mark to see it.

Mark''s work is spectacular.... CD need a little convincing but given the raves on this thread, I feel he''ll be just overjoyed with the ring, and the pet rock, all made in an incredible item that the word masterpiece ends up being an understatement.

For those of you who have seen one of Mark''s items in person, everything about his creations is so different from even the most highly reputed designers.

There is a polish of the metal that is finished to utter perfection. The feel of the item, the weight and stuctiure is just amazing. Just everything about his work is beyond flattering enough words to describe it.

For me, authoriing the description to the level deserving of such a creation will be a challenge. When it arrives, I will do some microscope cam views of just how intricately incredible the detail is done.

Hopefully, Belle will vounteer post them for me - as I usually have problems posting photos here. Just photographing this ring attempting to get the level and quality of image it deserves in itself will no doubt will be difficult to say the least.

When I spoke to CD last week, I told him that once he presents it, he should go to Tiffany and Cartier here, and he''ll instantly see, that this ring will at least equal if not surpass the items they sell.

CD''s lady wil be more than just enthralled.

I have the best job in the world, getting to play with all these magnificent creations and assist the new Pet Rock''s Parents
in turning a spectacular pet rock into an even more spectacular finished work of incomparable art.
