I bought this diamond from Fortekitty last summer. I couldn't figure out what exactly I wanted to do with it. I wanted it in yellow gold, but I don't tend to wear yg. I thought about a pendant, but wanted to see its lovely faceting. I just couldn't commit. Then I saw this setting on JuliaB's Etsy site, and thought it would be perfect. The yellow gold/yellow diamond halo would bring out the yellow in the tranny, but I'd still have the majority of the ring in white gold, which I tend to like more against my skin tone. The double halo beefs up the smaller stone, and in the sunlight…POW! Probably the blingiest ring I now own.

When I got home, I looked at it under different lighting. In my kitchen, it did something that I thought was totally cool. I believe someone else on PS posted a similar stone a while ago, that had a shift to grey-green. This looks like a cross between a grey diamond and a Montana sapphire or mint garnet. Since I'm more of a CS junkie than diamond one, I dig it! :D

Funky grey-green. This stone apparently has phosphorescence, remaining a yellow-green briefly after the black light has been turned off. Haven't tried it yet. I need a black light!

This one is great. Terrific use of double halo to bring out diamond color. Good job.

Beautiful!!!! A yellow diamond is at the top of my wish list and yours is fueling the fire!
Both of your JuliaB settings look very well made. Glad to see these examples of her work.
