I wanted to do something special with this stone since it is my first Jeff White gem. It was set by Leigh Jay Nacht for a vintage feel. This was my first time using them and I was pleased with the customer service and end product. They were quite helpful suggesting mounts that would work for the tourmaline and the ring was ready early. The pictures don't do it justice, the tourmaline is super bright and sparkly! iPhone pics on a rainy day.

I love it, most elegant. It looks gorgeous on you as well. May I ask as I wasn't quite sure from your post, is this a stock setting, or did they make this setting for your stone? I really love it and have been looking for similar styled settings.

Really beautiful.

What a drool-worthy combination. I was loving the stone alone until your side shot: what a beautiful setting, and what a classic piece!

Your stone looks gorgeous in the setting you chose! The yellow gold is so complimentary to the beautiful color of the stone! Congratulations! :appl:

Beautiful stone and setting. Is that unplated white gold? I love it!

Please come back and tell us more! It looks like yellow gold and the tourmaline looks amazing with the color of the setting. I'm dying to know what you think about the quality of the setting since in the past, other PSers had issues with the quality of Leigh Jay Nacht settings. It is such a truly perfect combination.

That is seriously stunning, probably the most beautiful CS ring I've seen on PS. Did they custom make the setting or was it based on an existing design? I've contacted them for quotes of their antique rings and was impressed with the pricing and customer service. I was curious about the quality - seeing your ring makes me comfortable. It's to die for.

Thanks for the kind words Acinom, mb, picante27, lovedogs, Aeolianarpa, aac2013, dk168, ricezo, Rockinruby, TL, lknvrb4, lovesvintage, lisaRN, ElleW, redroze1 and tyty333.

mb - it is setting L3286. Their settings are priced in platinum, but they will quote in YG or WG. They were helpful about suggesting settings that would fit my stone as the first one I inquired about was too small for the tourm.

TL - It is 14K YG, but it is interesting that you asked that because it looks to be a softer yellow color than my other YG pieces.

mb and redroze1 - I am very happy with the quality. Even though it is a replica it is hand engraved. I took pics with a 15X loupe in front of iphone so you can see the detail. If you want better pics let me know and I can try again later this week when the sun is out. It feels smooth and is very comfortable to wear. I love engraving and milgrain, but sometimes have had new pieces feel a bit scratchy after wearing a few hours.

You are so fast! I still remember the stone from the gem scoop last month.
Both the stone and setting are dreamy!
Is this a stock setting? Or custom made?

It's very well done replica imo, soft and fluid, instead of that "stiff" vibe.

Thank you. You know, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it and you defined it perfectly. Some repros feel “stiff” for whatever reason. Thanks for putting words to it.

I know this is an old thread but wanted to ask- did you send your stone to them to set or did you buy the setting and set elsewhere? I had looked at their site in the past and was thinking I'd seen that they would do either way but for some settings they prefer to set the stone themselves.

I sent them the stone and they set it.
