    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![​IMG]

    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?[​IMG]

    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![​IMG]

    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.

    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[​IMG]
