Still NO SUNLIGHT and really only a slightly better camera :rolleyes:

But I thought i should post one of the side view. I realized I still need to find a blacklight because it is SB flour.

Omg! It is sooooo pretty! And here you were worried about the sparkliness of your pear when really it was just the old setting dragging the whole thing down - this new setting really makes it shine! It's so sleek. I love it. :appl:

I know!! I think that setting was just a terrible bump in the road. My photography is terrible because it really does sparkle. i was getting dressed in my bathroom today and I couldnt take my eyes off it.
Im so glad I came here. I really wanted something unique, beautiful, and sturdy and I think this setting and stone delivers.


Im thinking now about bands, hopefully a BGD bezel band will fit under the head.

What an amazing difference! I'm so in love. I love a bezeled pear-it's my favorite way to set the stone. It's gorgeous on you-wear it in good health!

I can see that it sparkles - there's fire coming from the reflection in your first shot of the new setting! It took me ages to learn to take good pictures of my ring. So I expect you to post more in a few months when you're better at it. Like whenever you get your wedding band. You'll have had plenty of practice by then.

It looks from pics that the BGD bezel band is really petite so it will probably fit but wouldn't hurt to ask about the height. It looks like you have a good 2mm under there? That would definitely look really pretty. Or if not a bezel band, a brightcut pave band the same width as your halo.

For what it's worth since you were asking about pears irl, I've only ever seen two - one on a lady at the mall (a huge, icy-white one, which I might not have believed was real except she dropped several grand at the store I was working at), and one on my cousin's husband's aunt (I have no idea the technical term for this relation).

your second aunt in-law?? :lol:

yeah i think the bezel band would work. It would be sort of a stack; plain thing wedding band, diamond band, e ring. Ive considered the other type of diamond band but I want it to be less matchy match, if I can pull that off :naughty:

and yes taking pictures is hard! People say that but you dont believe it till you try. I see youve mastered it though. Love to see that close up as your avatar

Oh My word, it is just flipping STUNNING!!! :love:

I am SO glad you love, love, love it, and quite rightly so! It just gives it a whole new look, doesn't it?!

Beautiful ring for a beautiful lady. Never doubt your perfectly peachy pear again :))
P.S. sorry I'm the last person to post - I have had a girlie weekend away with no babies or men around & I'm not long home :sun:

Thanks!! Youre right its weird how two "plain shank pear halos" could look so completely different!!
its funny my SO saw it and he said "looks the same as i remember it" :o
and THATS why I picked my own e-ring :lol:

And no worries about you not posting till today. Im jealous of your ladies weekend. I should follow your lead but I'm deep in mommy mode currently (I currently have rice cereal in my hair :rolleyes: )

Your Ritani halo reset is just gorgeous! It frames your beautiful pear so nicely, making it really stand out. (I'm a huge pear fan, too!) It really sparkles and looks so lovey on you! Enjoy!

Seriously, men have NO idea when it comes to sparkles. My husband doesn't actually see the point in jewellery at all :-o

How old is your little one? My girls are almost 2 and almost 4, and this was only my second trip away alone since I became a mummy :rolleyes: It was a LONG time coming, only for one day shopping & then a night on the tiles & fancy hotel, but it was enough for me. I'm such a saddo - my place is at home with my snuggle monsters :)) I do manage a girlie night out once a month though for dinner & drinks, which is what keeps me going through the food throwing & vomit!

My little peanut is a little over 4 months, so she is just starting to eat with a spoon; hence the rice cereal all over everything! I think my SO and i have gone on about 2 dates sense shes been around. But we dont mind so much. She just such a sweetie. Plus she has just started taking an interest in our dog. Who needs to go out with that kind of entertainment! :lol:

Yes, you're absolutely right - my girls are hysterically funny :bigsmile: It's nice to spend my days with them :))

Oooh, a real teeny tiny one in your house! I forget what it's like to have one so small! Yes, the feeding is chaotic. It still can be for my almost 2 year old as well, so I've been covered in food crumbs for what feels like many years now! :D

Thank you! I had never even considered a pear until I found this site and as soon as I did I fell in LOVE. They are unique yet still classic. I can't get over it.
It's strange. You know when you buy a new car, and then you never really noticed before but after you see people driving the same type of car you have all over. I thought it would be the same with pears but its not. I still never notice any.

It is gorgeous!! And it is SO similar to mine - except for the pink halo. I wish I had have thought about the way you have set it, it seems to really let the light into the pear!
