Wow! They both turned out amazing! Bravo to Neil and DK for finding and doing such a great job!

BTW...I'm going through the same process you were going through with your 10 stone oec. Just cant figure out what I want. I'm all over the map.
I kind of just want to give it a rest...these things are suppose to be fun arent they???

Wow! That is quite the transformation. I absolutely loooove the band. Substantial yet oh so wearable.

And the EW setting will be just divine! Can’t wait to see photos.

@Niel , what an amazing job! We should all be so lucky to have a friend like you!

I love the Zelda ring- as soon as I saw it, I thought “Rupees!!!”

Thanks everyone!! All credit to @Neil, who is a gem of a BFF (pun intended, ha). I just buy what she sends me and it always works out!

I'm terrible at PS 2.0 commenting/replying so I will fail in advance at thanking everyone individually, lol. DH and I have been together a lot longer than our 10 years married, so we technically celebrated our "10 year anniversary" awhile ago - but I still think 10 years married is something to buy diamonds about! I'm very lucky that he supports my hobby and is always pushing me to buy the things I want.

I'm hoping Zelda will be delivered tomorrow, at the latest on Tuesday. I'm telling myself it's Tuesday so I'm not disappointed! DK also had his engraver touch up Zelda's engraving and I cannot wait to see it. The engraving on Kate is by far the most amazing engraving I've ever seen. It's more like a carving than engraving. I think my next stacking purchase is going to be the Tiffany two-tone band, but that will be in 2020 because I'm back on ban island saving for studs.

@tyty333 - YES. I drove myself and everyone else crazy for years trying to figure out what I wanted. Once I gave it up, it was like the decision was made for me. Give yourself a break!

@lovedogs I will volunteer Neil's services to you :lol: -- she seriously has a gift for finding needles in haystacks.

@Tonks - that is exactly what I was going for. Substantial yet wearable. I've had her for a few months now, and I really wear her almost everyday, which is really unusual for me!

@anangel DH and I are Zelda freaks, so I also immediately thought Rupeeeeeeeeeeeeees when I saw it. I wouldn't have chosen that name myself but it fits perfectly.

@missy @SimoneDi @Mamabean @lovedogs Thanks for the anniversary wishes!

A beautiful pair of rings - congratulations on your new purchases and on your anniversary. :))

Are you planning to wear them together or separately?

@mrs-b Thanks! Honestly, I'm not sure if I'll wear them together yet. I want to in theory, but I'll have to see how much room that takes up as I don't have a ton of space for stacking. I also am not sure if that will "too much" so I'll just have to see when she gets here.

Zelda has made it to Chicago and I'm hoping hoping hoping she gets delivered today!! :appl:

HAHAHA Thanks @Neil I'm so lazy and it's tax season at work so I have less time to upload pics. Zelda arrived late last night and I did a fashion show with different bands.

The lighting is so crappy and I feel like all my pics look the same but you get the idea. I managed to snap a couple outside pics this morning when I was waiting for the bus.

Overall, she completes me as a person. I feel like most of the time I'll wear her stacked with Noel and yg band (thin diamond band, also found Neil, my personal shopper) as I think she's a little too much for work everyday paired with Kate. But OMG I love her EW so much. She's so wearable and perfect for me. I hope the sun comes out this weekend and I can do a ~fancy~ photo shoot.

Thank you!! Months later, Zelda and Kate are still my mainstays. I'm very fickle with jewelry and sell most things I've owned, but I would never sell either of these rings and wouldn't change a single thing about either of them. The dream is to complete my collection only with pieces I feel the same way about!

Your going to laugh maybe...but can I see the backside of Zelda? I notice it has engravings.
