Hi everyone, I'll be uploading tons of pictures to this thread, enjoy!

This is a Harry Winston inspired cushion halo ring by Leon Mege. The center stone was sourced by Perry:

1.65 ct
E/F color (GIA said F, two independent appraisers graded it E)
VS2 clarity
Old Mine Brilliant
7.41 x 6.90 x 4.39 mm
Polish Excellent
Symmetry Very Good
Table 50%
Depth 63.6%
Large culet
Girdle- thick to thin
No flourescence
Finger size 8 3/4

I will take measurements of the shank, halo, and height when I can. All I know is that when I met with Leon, we agreed the shank would be 1.6-1.7 mm, and the halo would be proportionate to that, he didn't give me an exact measurement. I asked him to set the diamond higher than he recommends, I asked him to shoot for 6.39-6.5mm from the table to finger. Since I haven't measured it, I can't tell if he actually stuck by those measurements.

He used 64 melee stones, total weight .86 ct.

And now the pictures!

Hi ringabling, thank you for the compliment. I signed the work order with Leon on 11/23 and just got it today 1/11, so about 7 weeks, although Leon's office was closed for a couple of days around Thanksgiving, and the week between Christmas and New Year. It's been a loooong wait, but it's here now so I'm happy!

It's soooooo amazingly beautiful and it looks huge on your hand!! So exciting to finally see your Leon creation - the height looks really good - I'd definitely be curious to know how high it is off your finger - it's perfect!
