So Mom turned 60 this year and it is also her 39th wedding anniversary and she wanted to celebrate it with a new wedding band. She has always loved my 5 stone ring (just like kcoursolle''s) and she knew she wanted something similar but also wanted to make it her own.


I contacted Brian and Lesley to see if they would be having some stones in the size, color, and clarity that she was looking for and they were going to be getting a few in soon. I have missed working with them since their departure from WF and even though I love working with WF and do plan on continuing to do so, I felt like working with Brain and Lesley on this project was something I really wanted to do. They have always been good to me over the years and supporting the new business plus getting some of the first new Brian Gavin signature diamonds was very appealing!


Anyways..... At first she thought that she would want to have the 5 stone ring just like mine but make it to a full eternity band with smaller melee stones. We received the CAD''s of that and she decided that it was not the look she wanted. So I did some searing of different elements and came up with the CAD below. A knife edge band with a slight split shank and a bezel diamond there with the 5 stone u-prong.


Please let me know what you think!



Thanks

Oh I ADORE it. That bezel set diamond in there is beautiful!

ETA: Okay I want one of those. But with sapphires in that bezel. I'm in love!

Intrigued! The design is very cool!
May I ask, does she plan on wearing her engagement ring with this wedding band, or will it be stand alone?

I know you''re not getting tired of hearing this but...I love it too! The split with the bezel makes it really unique and all your (or should I say her) own!

That is beautiful.

Can you Mommy adopt me and leave me a ''little something'' (like that?) in her will?


It is going to be stunning. I really like the detail at the bezel/split/knife edge. Gorgeous.

Thanks to ALL! Porridge, Diamond*Dana, Tuckins1, Deelight, MissGotRocks, HeatherL, Kaleigh, Gecko, and tyty333!

Gypsy- Thank you! We love the bezel as well and mom thought about a nice blue sapphire, but in the end decided that since this was her first real nice diamond project that it should be all diamonds!

LindaW- Mom is sooooo excited..she can hardly wait!

Elle_Chris- Thanks! I think you are right about mom!

Coat- Thanks. I think the side is great too! Just enough to keep it simple and elegant with a twist!

Skippy- Thanks! I love to help people to get diamonds so being able to help my mom has been amazing! I think mom might be lurking but I will send her your well wishes!

AmberGretchen- That''s exactly what she was going for. A little twist to the classic design. She didn''t want Kcoursolle''s ring exactly because I already have it. I think she is going to LOVE this design.

LauraOnline- Sad to say she does not have her original e-ring. She parted with it many many years ago and it has taken her till now to convince my father that they are more than just "a shiny piece of rock". Boy if he only knew what he has gotten himself into!!!!


Kcoursolle- Thank you for inspiring this design. Thank you, thank you, thank you! She will wear it with much happiness!

DS- The stones are going to be between 30 and 35 points. Her finger size is 6.75 so that will be just enough to cover all of the top of her finger. I am waiting to her the details about the stones from Brian and Lesley but will post when I get them.

LostSapphire- Thanks! Mom can adopt you but you might have to fight it out with Sis and I as to who is going to get this amazing piece!

The ring is going to be beautiful. I especially love the little bezel-set side stones. It make a nice transition into the band. What a lovely gift for your mother!!

KT,

We''ve missed you too and feel honored to be a part of this very special project. Your support means a great deal to us.
Thanks Lesley! It''s has always been a pleasure to work with you! You have truly made this very special for mom.
She is sooooo thrilled with the look of this ring! She can hardly wait to see it IRL.... I think I get about 5 calls a day from her to talk about it!!!


Icekid- You really need to get a 5 stone...I think every woman should have at least 1!!


Swingirl- Thanks! I think the transition to the band looks amazing too. Brian did a great job taking what I was saying and making it come to life! He''s great at that.

Thanks Brown.Eyed.Girl!
