Hello!

I''m a bit shy...


I wanted to share my ring I just had made with inspiration from MrsV''s ring.

The center is a 10mm Morganite (my favorite gemstone) - its a very faint pink/peachy color. With 7x5mm pears on each side (both G/SI1).

So a 10mm stone is pretty big... just wondering if it''s too big for everyday wear (I wear 8.75 rings, so it doesn''t cover up too much finger)? Sorry for the terrible photos, its late and pretty dark over here - so these are the best photos for now.

I think your ring is just beautiful and I don''t think the size is too big and you DON''T have chubby fingers they are perfect for your hand and your body

Seriously, your ring is delicious I hope you enjoy it to bits!

Gosh, I love this ring! The proportions are perfect. Hmm...for me it might be a teensy bit big for everyday wear, but I am a professor. So, I think it depends on your lifestyle. Looks lovely on you, though!

ETA: Welcome!

Oh, that ring is just stunning! I LOVE the colours! I think it''s perfect for everyday wear- big enough to get noticed and not so big as to be ostentatious. Absolutley beautiful. I''m in love!

Your ring is lovely! I don''t think it''s too big, and it''s beautiful on your fingers. I personally feel you can go bigger w/ gemstones.

It''s a beautiful ring, congratulations! I wouldn''t worry about the size for everyday wear but morganite does only have a hardness of 7.5 so unlike a diamond or sapphire, it probably needs to be babied a bit more. Because of the hardness it may not be good for everyday wear.

Ditto! It may not be a good everyday ring because of the stone type not the size.

Either way it is just beautiful!!!! The stones have such great proportion and the setting is so elegant!

It looks flawless in the three-stone setting with pear sides.

Congratulations on such a beauty!
