Struggling with the profile view but getting closer!
And it turns out that the French cuts & M8F play very well together!
I know, right???
I have an over-the-top ring that could have been a perfect pinky ring for a cat-in-the-lap SPECTRE mastermind but I can only wear it on a bigger finger -- and only under partial cover of darkness!
It looked just a tad too chunky to me, so I tried adjusting the outline of the shank to more closely follow the line of those fantastic side stones. I think it does maybe help show them off a little more!
Please forgive my totally inadequate photo editing skills, but hopefully you get the drift.
In the top down view, i think the centre stone is a little too "proud"- i prefer the version in #34. to me that version flowed better to my eye. Peter (prs) #37 version is good, too
I love the side profile view- that puffy crown? YUM!
I always feel the face up view is more important than the side view, because that's what you are going to be looking at all the time.
This is true in spades if it's not going to be a pinky ring, the side view will be hidden between your fingers!
Bravo!to be fair to the ring and the ring wearer.... which finger is this ring going to be worn on?
For me: there are certain lines/ flow that i prefer on certain fingers. Admittedly, i only have ring finger rings, and one pinky ring.
Being a ring finger ring: My eye will definitely go for the flow of the heavier ring, which i think it is the lower/ bottom ring.
If it is a pinky ring, (if i read correctly, it isnt going to be anymore?) then i would choose the skinner ring.
It looks like you may be choosing this ring for the pointy finger/ second finger(?).
If so, I would consider what other rings you have and if this is going to be different or not.
I know you octavia is going to be robust/ architectural/ second finger ring on the same hand. So there may be enough of a reasoning to go for a slightly less structure/heavier ring.
Or, if you wanted to consider how would you wear your rings. You are getting 2 made at the same time. so it would be hard to judge what it is that you would do. change it daily, weekly, or as the mood suits.
Top down or side profile view will largely depend on which finger this ring is going to be sitting on. For me, a ring finger- you will have a combination of side and top view. Side view- when you are driving your hands are on the steering wheel. so you see the side view. second finger- similar both side and top view are important for me.
Pinky- given my tolerances for the pinky ring to be bling free, it doesnt matter the side or the top view. BUt suspect taht if there was bling, the top view would be more important.
Yes, many considerations. and many that depend on what you think would suit.
and yes, i am not going to make that decision for you.
