    If I were to take on a new project -
    I would buy this:
    C06D4481-6613-4106-84FB-425B64F7E769.png
    Mash it with style element of this:
    851034AF-D680-4DD7-B771-90DF158D3A9B.jpeg
    And come out with this
    2EFC088E-3594-4A93-8A60-32946BD083EE.png

    Anything floating around what’s currently available for sale, and in your mind what you think you’d do with it, but most likely won’t?

    Oh, pretty! I saw that stone today too. I like it. But I have a sapphire sitting that I need to send to Caysie as is.

    Oooh interesting thread! Right now I don't have too many inspirations like that I wouldn't act on :Up_to_something:

    Got a lot planned for the future!

    Now that’s gorgeous!

    If I were to start a new project, I’d buy that super expensive paraiba in Yvonne’s shop and surround it with a basic, yet chunky, halo of diamonds.

    O
    I’m excited to see what you have planned for yours! These are all fantasy projects tho - no real life intentions!

    Aww! I can’t wait to see! But it’s still fun to play “what if”!

    Ooh! Great picks!

    Continuing in the hypothetical colored stone project dreamup train:

    Edit
    It bears saying i am doing best estimates at real size perspectives- not able to do super accurately

    It is so fun to see these mocked up designs! How are you able to do that?

    Very neat idea. Love the mermaid colours, but alas, I don't think Yvonne has so many paraiba melee to make this project feasible.

    Thanks- it is fun!
    Just a free, simple cut and paste app called youdoodle.

    Fair enough. They can be sourced elsewhere if one was so inclined to want more than the 20 something she has of various sizes.
    I made them way too small, for correct size perspective anyways.

    If in a pendant than I would like a halo like gratefulforlife's ring (sorry this probably is not spelt correctly but you'll know the ring anyway :love:)

    2CF5C703-1387-47D0-B700-B9EAE9635C80.jpeg.jpg

    If in a ring, then I would have set it more simply, something like this would be ideal

    I love your choices!
    Sigh
    I love enamel. My sinks, however, do all they can to spite me. So no enamel rings in my future.

    Nah- I just effectively neglect other duties I should be doing! Although the frenchie seller is unknown to me to make any recommendations -
    I do think the real life version of your sapphire and those frenchies would look much more congruent.
    Someone needs to just do it.

    A 3-stone ring? Imagine a big diamond in the center.

    If I were setting this one (sadly no funds to do so),
    [​IMG]
    I would set this beauty in high karat gold with a halo of yellow diamonds with green emerald accents at 45, 135, 225, and 315 degrees.

    Sorry for off topic, but if you don’t mind sharing - which program did you use to draw that beautiful setting around the sapphire?

    I don’t mind at all!
    The program I use (free but ad stricken) is called ‘You Doodle’.
    I copy/ paste elements from existing setting images I find -like a platinum milgrain bezel. (Supersize the pics and you can really see the cut/paste job!) from there it’s resizing, rotating, inverting - so on.

    Great job! This is the one I would’ve chosen! I’ve been thinking about that sapphire for about a month! So beautiful! But alas, it’s not good timing for me!:(2

    Fan of the center emerald but not that setting/proportions.

    This is what I would do: get 2 pairs of trapezoid diamonds and 1 pair smaller baguette emeralds to create a bonbon/candy ring!

    Sigh.
    The gravity pull of this one may be too hard to resist.
    This stone
    86626DEB-AFDC-43F1-8553-D7F96AD764CE.jpeg

    With this setting inspo @elle_71125
    posted in another thread
    6F3B6FF2-6892-4896-83BB-CF9A2B7F14FB.jpeg

    and all bets are off, if the stone looks halfway as good as it does in pictures.
