Thanks cellentani! I know what you mean about a lot of antique styles being "interesting". There are some I drool over and others I would never wear, but I''ve been attached to this style for a while. I looked at a couple of his ruby ones (the .60 and the half carat one) and both were STUNNING! In the end I was deciding between this one and the .60 ruby ring and actually the ruby ring looked much bigger on my hand and was just as gorgeous. The rubies in person were a gorgeous vivid magenta color. I ended up going with this one mostly because the stone spoke to me a little more and I''ve always wanted a chunky cushion.Date: 2/12/2009 7:10:21 PM
While I find a lot of antique rings ''interesting'', there are very few I''d actually wear - yours, however, I''d happily wear in a heartbeat. It''s really, really beautiful - the sapphires look very lively, not dead and dark. I checked out his other stuff, and that ruby one like yours is pretty sweet too. Great job picking this one out!!
Thanks gal! I definitely fell in love with this cushion! I was impressed by the quality of the settings that he showed me, all of them were well-made, even by obsessive pser standards.Date: 2/12/2009 7:22:13 PM
I adore your ring! The cushion is just mesmerizing and the setting could not be more perfect
Aw, thanks! I''ve always loved your bevk setting! It''s much of the same style and the airline is gorgeous on your ring. I don''t know what it is about this style, but I''m very drawn to it.Date: 2/12/2009 7:23:44 PM

Thanks posh! I have been drooling over this style for years as well and I am thrilled to have one!! Hopefully I''ll enjoy some of your pics one day when you find the right one!Date: 2/12/2009 7:40:59 PM
Oh my... :::::SWOOOOOOOOOON:::::
I LOVE IT
I have always been drawn to this style of ring and one day hope to own one too... for now I can be jealous of yours
Gorgeous!! It looks at home on your hand. Enjoy your new beauty!!!!
Thanks so much AraAnn! I love the shade of blue too! I would describe it as a medium ceylon color. In the pictures it looked almost navy, but I''m so glad I saw it in person because it''s a vivid stunning color!Date: 2/12/2009 8:04:50 PM

Very elegant ring...looks great on your hand! And I love that shade of blue...it''s a little brighter hue than some others I''ve seen, very pretty! Congrats on your new ring!
Thanks so much LaurenThePartier, cushions with chunky culets and facets are divine in my opinion, glad to hear it passed the pser tests! I am definitely enjoying my find!Date: 2/12/2009 9:15:57 PM
