Re: Im soooooo excited! My Jeff White spinel is being shippe

I dont really know what we want to set it in. This will be my engagment ring and I would like something simple. I would like for the focus to stay on the stone. One thing I do know is it will be set in white gold. We would love suggestions from the pricescope family. Maybe something with side baguettes??? Double claws?

Here's an older thread where Kismet requested suggestions for a setting for her asscher stone. My favourite is the Taffin but there are also many other beautiful choices that include double prongs, bezels and more.

That stone is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I can't wait to see your IRL pics :naughty: Are you thinking of doing a solitaire setting or something with sidestones?

What about going with a solitaire setting with an elaborate basket/gallery, like Kelpie's asscher tourmaline setting?

(kelpie, I hope you don't mind me suggesting this, but your ring is so beautiful!)

Here are a few other simple, but very elegant, settings for an asscher:

Not sure if these are even along the lines of what you are looking for, but just thought I'd make some suggestions! :bigsmile:

Re: Im soooooo excited! My Jeff White spinel is being shippe

pink is not my thing.....but your stone is very much lovely AND e-ring worthy! i'm so glad you're going to let it be the star of your ring. it deserves to be and can hold its own against any diamond solitaire.

ps thank god you're not talking about putting a halo on this beauty!!!!!!!

Re: Im soooooo excited! My Jeff White spinel is being shippe

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I am trying to remain calm until it comes to my front door...lol.

Chrono-I opened the link to the Taffin with my husband standing next to me and I think my heart pitter pattered...lol. That setting allows the stone to be present and at the same time is soo simple and elegant.

I will share a little of what Jeff told me about the finished stone:

It is 7.9 mm. 3.07 ct and a hard to find delicate pink. He did take a artsy snap shot of the stone with another stone( a mint garnet) he had cut for another client. I dont want to post the picture due to the fact that he mentioned he is considering using it as the cover of his brochures and Im not sure if the mint garnet has gotten to its "home" yet :)

He does mention that in the picture I have posted there is a hint of lavender in the stone. He said it is just a reflection as the pic was taken outside and the sky was very blue that day. He said its very bright and sparkly.

I will be taking all kinds of pics when I get it to share with PS. If anyone has anymore ideas for settings dont hesitate to post. So far that Taffin Chrono posted is amazing!

Oh no, don't say that as this is the sort of pink colour I'm looking for!

It's absolutely gorgeous and looking forward to seeing more pics :D

Very pretty. Can you post photos at daytime and in incandescent light when you receive it?
Good that Jeff makes unphotoshopped pictures.

What delightful stone! I also vote for small diamond traps as side stones. Can't wait to see the final product! :love:
