Hmmm! Good idea! My index finger will be rocking the Octavia ring. Code name: “Cold Fusion”
just got back from casting today! Won’t be long now!!!
Must it be black?? Would be pretty in Pt or white gold. I assume you'd need a pair of bevels that align with the tapering traps.
Of course a single stone flush-mounted that way would be even cooler, imo. You could have any size stone on any finger you want.
and thanx for the tag, @Dr_Diesel !!
I like pinkie rings, however, I would have them as plain bands and no bling. I have tried a few on, and the bands only work for me.
have you tired any bling on the pinkie? Perhaps try a few on to see how it feels on. It will help you understand your tolerances.
as for this ring- whilst it is stunning, for me, I would change the setting or the side stones. That centre with that amazing puffy crown - wowsers.
do you have any other pictures of the ring- perhaps a top down view?
I need to see the centre stone to knwo what works for my eye. The facet patterning all has to work for me in the setting. It either blends in, accentuates it or it competes with the centre stone. Based on what I see, I believe the side stones will compete with the centre stone and will be a distraction- ie too much going on in the stones for eye to really appreciate the entire rong
I am not a big fan of those prongs/
Claws and sadly, that is all I see; and therefore can’t unsee, if that makes sense.
my instincts tell me those tapered French cuts (?) would be better set in a channel/ bezel style to work as a ring.
But keen to get a top down view of the centre stone to know how it would look, and therefore side stones.
bare in mind, I only have solitaires and eternity bands in my collection. So my design eye is limited.
Out of all the renditions of the 7 stone ring, the last 2 are my favourite. The contour differences that you say, I could not tell. So for me, either of the 2 options.
And woohoo- no prongs.
However, I have to be honest and say that my favourite is the solitaire. The centre stone is what looks like a modern cushion and the sides are tapered French cuts?? To me, the centre snd side stone compete for attention.
but, your eye may like what you see, and that trumps what I say.
I love the simplicity of the solitaire for this centre stone. It works well, and the lines on the ring work- the top and bottom lines I mean. I think it flows well. Very similar to what I want to do with my asscher. I have seen the cads, and I want the lines to accentuate the same way you have it as I believe it will make it pop. Awaiting for his new cads.
I have to also advise you that I am step cut person. However, I do appreciate all stones.
those French cuts- yummy. They work best I think for older cuts, for my eyes- old mine or maybe OEC. Or the newly cut AVC.
if you like these French cute: Perhaps have the Octavia with the French cuts? But I have to see it laid out. It might work in my mind, but visually it may not.
Or perhaps have a French cut eternity band!!! That is on my wish list…. Lololol.
