:wavey: @Rfisher I stumbled upon a round stone in round faux bezel that I thought I’d shared if you are still hunting for visuals.

Thank you for this and for thinking of me @the_mother_thing
I’m not seeing any round faux bezel with prongs that looks quite like Imagined, possibly there is no such thing.

Have also been thinking about all the white metal dwarfing the blue. The CAD from last ring will not be used, as CVB made to be purposely exaggerated and almost cartoonish for the hand fab guy to riff from as inspo. And unfortunately as it was not foreseen, he did that aspect pretty spot on. So hopefully that will also address the sapphire not getting lost?

That is pretty!
Thanks for linking it @CSpan
There’s truly not much new under the sun!

Tweaked CADs - yay!
Went with the octagon with tiny prongs and nixed the YG against the sapphire option. Petal metal should finish out a bit thinner than shown.

I’ll also be listing two of these stones on LT at a later date. I don’t need any more projects!

They have already been unmounted, each are about 20pts and are somewhere in between 3.5-3.7mm, bruted girdles, and the vendor listed them as G/H VS but I’ll get more specific from CVB when I list.

Cool, I really like the look of the black rhodium against that sapphire!

I love the bezel (channel?) Around the sapphire. That really looks lovely.
I don't have much experience with CAD but will the tips of the petals be as sharp as they look? I like the more pronounced petal/leaf look that the point brings but I'd worry about snapping or poking something (probably myself)

The bezel /prongs is quite nice isn’t it?
Yeah on the points - I don’t believe they polish out that sharp.
I’m not worried about it poking or snagging.

Sorry I keep going back to that bezel, being an octagon fanatic I just freaking love it so much.

That would make sense, I am rubbish at translating CAD/image to done.

So 8 really tiny prongs? I really like the underside of that CAD. Do you have a profile shot? I am wondering how high above the diamonds the sapphire sits...

yes! Either 8 tiny claws or tiny ball prongs.
there is definitely some tilt here. I’m much looking forward to this aspect, as it’s much different than anything I’ve had before.

I like it too, the way the sapphire sits. This will be lovely!
