When I got the stone, I was shocked. I knew it had some grey, but in our lights in the evening, it looked monochromatic. My husband actually loved the stone, so I agreed to keep it. And when day came I fell so in love with the stone that I decided to put it in my upgrade. I love love love the end result!

This is what she looks like often, this is my favorite color. She''s very moody. I''m now posting her good side, later I''ll post some very nordic (suitable as I live in Finland) moody and grey pics.

Showing off the cut, and a bit of the grey. This cut is so amazing, that even though I''m no fan of ovals, I love it. The stone seems to float on beams of light and be so deep you can just gaze at it forever. Sigh.

Yes, I remember reading about this in your long thread. It felt nice to be "gem-buddies"
I love the stone you got, though. That blue is amazing!

Thanks mr. ma re! The craftmanship is excellent, a real old timer made it for me. I''m so happy with the work. The proportions are excellent, so the design becomes something unique, despite the simplicity of it.

Wow! This has to be one of my fave coloured gem rings - tiger, you have fantastic taste in jewellery, I love
all your pieces. But this is really beautiful and elegant - and I love it even more as I have this stones exact little sister from John,
now I am convinced to set in E-W.

fab! I love it!! It looks gorgeous on you, and that setting seems very well made - yay for decent local
jewellers right?!

Beautiful ring! I have a soft spot for those bezeled/semi-bezeled designs. So beautiful and wearable. Wonderful ring. Wear it in good health!

Thanks so much sweetie
Don''t you love the cut of your oval? I love this local jeweler, his prices seem really good. The shank is white gold, but all of the parts of the actual setting are platinum, and it was still very affordable.

It''s gorgeous!!!

I was actually thinking of doing something similar 4 years down the road. Mind if I ask what ring size you wear? I''m having a tough time figuring out proportions, lol.

It''s so pretty!!

Hi MakingTheGrade,

Thankyou, I was actually just thinking that I have found "my" ideal proportions for an everyday wear ring. I''m really happy with the finger coverage and height on this one. My finger size is a 6, and the diamonds are 0.30 (I think that''s what the jeweler said, someone correct me if it''s totally unrealistic
, I know nothing about diamonds!).
