I wanted a new ring to celebrate my job promotion and surviving 2020 (LOL). I had been sitting on a stone my friend Sam cut for me over a decade ago waiting for the right moment. I worked with the folks over at Midas Manufacturing https://midasmanufacturing.com/ to help me create the perfect ring. They did a fantastic job with the CAD renderings from my wonky sketches. I couldn't be happier! What should I name my ring????


Specs:
Size 4 platinum ring
8 x11mm, 3.56 ct Brazilian colored emerald
.61 ctw heart shaped E color, SI clarity diamonds (from James Allen), 4.2x4.6 and 4.2x4.56mm respectively
.15 ctw round surprise diamonds (from an old pair of baby studs)

Obligatory pics:

That is one phenomenal shade of green! I love the proportion of the side pears to the emerald. This ring is truly spectacular. Thank you for sharing! Congrats!

Love that color!!!! How did you sit on that for a decade?! I would never be able to wait that long LOL.

I know, right? I couldn't decide between a pendant or a ring....can you believe I thought it was too big for a ring at first. Now, I'm like "Nah, it's just the right size. I could go bigger, even..." LOL

What an awesome way to celebrate such important milestones in your life. I love this color. Do you feel you were able to capture the color of what you see in person pretty closely in your photos?

Aoife! I have never heard this name before. What is the origin?
It does make me feel joyful when I see her. :) My partner calls this ring the "Ms. Frankenstein" because she's composed of so many different parts. :razz:

The color is not 100% right, but it's pretty close. There is some blue undertone in some lighting for sure, but not quite as much as a the pictures. But, it does convey this isn't overly saturated and hilights the "jardin"

Thanks Ladies for all of your sweet and supportive responses. I keep staring at my new ring. I was thinking of going with bezels for the side hearts to emphasize the shape but I'm glad I didn't because the basket setting lets in more lighting.

One more picture cause I can't help myself. LOL.
