Hi everyone - I had this made a few months back for a friend of mine. She recently went through a tough divorce and was lamenting the fact that she couldn''t wear her wedding set any more. I offered to make her a replacement ring so she could look at something pretty on her hand. She wanted something delicate and sparkly.

I bought the sapphire off ebay so I''m not sure of the quality, but it looks great. I had Mark at Engagementringsdirect set it for me and he told me that the LOGR setting was "soft" and I should be careful with it. I was really pleased with the ring when it was set.

What a sweet friend you are!


The ring is very pretty, I love the icy light blue. Would you mind send me the link to the LOGR ring? Did you upgrade the diamonds?

Hi Yingh - so glad you liked it!

Here''s the link to the setting. I may have paid slightly less because I won it in an auction. I didn''t upgrade the stones and was pleased to find that they looked small but sparkly. I didn''t dare loupe them...

Thanks for the link! Your pictures looks much nicer than those of the vendor! I always skipped this one when browsing. What a pleasant surprise!


How you like the side view?

I agree with the ''soft'' assessment on LOGR rings. I have learned to always check the total weight of the ring and found it will be safer to go above 3 gram.

Thank you for all the sweet comments! Yes, this friend of mine is very dear to me. In fact, I helped her with her wedding set when they purchased it 2 years ago. I am also glad that she indulges my obsession with jewelry!

Yingh - here is a side shot. It''s not terribly pretty but the good thing is that you can wear a band flush.

I brought the stone and setting to a few local B&Ms and they were really harsh about the setting. They said they would charge $150 to set it because they were sure the pave would fall out. I was just trying to set it locally instead of shipping it to Mark T, but after I got such bad comments, I sent it to Mark who set it with no problems. I''m curious to see how the ring holds up with time.

What a lovely friend you are, and that ring is beautiful!

I have this setting in which I''ve set a pink tourmaline, and I love it! I can wear it flush with another ring if I want to, and so far, I''ve had no problems with it!

Thank you all! It was such a fun project, especially because it wasn''t for me.

Laurenthepartier - I''m glad yours is holding up well. That is reassuring.

I purchased another halo setting from LOGR and it''s damaged, so I guess it''s a real toss-up whether you get a good one or not. Luckily they are going to replace it with another.

Oh, how beautiful! It''s very elegant, indeed. It reminds me of an aqua as well.

Well done!

gongjoo--- It''s funny you say you had really bad reactions to the setting from local stores. I purchased the same setting from LOGR and it was a disaster! A few people refused to set it, and two other jewelers set it for me but they both did a TERRIBLE job, and blamed it on the workmanship of the original setting. They said to fix it would cost more than I paid for it in the first place. Good thinking having a pricescope jeweler set it! It looks FAR better than mine. I actually took the stone right out of mine and put it in a different setting. I''m glad you had better luck with yours though, it turned out really beautiful!

Btw you are a very sweet friend. Not only is the ring beautiful, but I''m sure having such a caring friend helps her get through the pain of the divorce. Kudos to you
