I just received my glamor shots from BGD and I am so excited and happy!!

My original ring was a rose gold trellis three stone too... but as you can see from the glamor shots- it was nowhere near what I wanted from my engagement ring... too wide for me and not delicate enough. No one else could see anything but obviously I was obsessing over it everyday. The difference looks incredible!

With my old setting (interesting to see BGD 18k rose gold is a lot pinker than my original ring which was also 18k rose gold)

hi junerose!

the color of new setting is fabulous!
is it just an impression, or are the stones closer to each other?
also, big improvement on the shank.. nicely round and comfortable, I believe!

What a difference the new setting makes! I love your new BGD one! I like the color better on their rose gold also!

Thanks dianabarbara! The whole setting is now a lot more delicate, so everything looks closer together. The metal took up so much more space in the old setting, now it will be all about the diamonds!

I love rose gold! what are you going to do with the old setting? perhaps get a stunt ring with another type of stone for harsh sports and travelling? aaand.. can we get a hand shot? :naughty:

I don't post often, but wanted to pop in and say it's fabulous!! Any handshots?

I'm interested to hear your opinion on having RG prongs vs. the old WG ones...

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the old setting... I don't really need 2 trellis settings! I will probably sell it on the bistro.

Handshots will have to wait until Friday when I get it I'm afraid! I am counting down the hours....
I wasn't sure what to do about the colour of the metal for the prongs -I posted in Rocky Talky and people voted for all rose gold. Lesley at BGD told me she didn't think it would work as well with white gold prongs because it would affect the "flow" of the setting. I really like the look of the rose gold prongs in the glamor shots so fingers crossed I like it as much in real life!

Wow, that is spectacular! I love the delicate look and the color is really beautiful. My trellis is boxy like your old one and I'm not sure I love it, BGD did a great job on the new setting!

I can't believe how white those diamonds look with the rose gold prongs! Can you tell us the differences between the settings? There's no question about the beauty of the new one compared to the old... this looks like money very well spent to me!

Thank you Laila619, AP1976, yennyfire & woofmama!!

Missymoo- The shank of the new one is 2mm thin and the whole thing is in rose gold with claw prongs. Otherwise they are the "same" ring but the BGD is much better made! I think the rose gold prongs make the diamonds really POP and look even whiter!

Oh my gosh, that is seriously beautiful!!!!! :love: :love: :love: I LOVE IT. I love the daintier setting and the all rose gold looks so much better than the 2-tone in my opinion. Leslie is right, it just flows better. And of course those prongs are just YUMMY :lickout: :bigsmile: Can't wait to see handshots!

ditto. I very much agree on that! funny, as white prongs are the routine advice to make stones look whiter.. food for thought..

Night and day, the difference is astonishing!

I think with such a colorless stone you won't notice much difference with the rose gold prongs.

I hope not -I'm interested to see if I do notice a difference.


Thank you Schafenm, I love rose gold -it seems to suit my skintone best.

WOW! The difference in golds is quite stark. I love BGD's 18k RG! I typically go for the rosier 14k, but BGD's 18k is so YUMMY! :lickout:

Gorgeous ring! Congrats! Your original was one of my fav's, but your reset is just ... *sigh* :love: :appl:

Yummy! I love the more fluid look of BGD trellis vs your original, it just seems so much more natural and organic looking! Amazing difference (that only us PSers ever notice!) and we'll worth the reset. I'm kind of fond of his trellis work myself, tee hee!

Beautiful! Enjoy!

I love the daintier rose gold setting but I also love the size proportions of your three stones. The two smaller diamonds on the sides really highlight the centre stone. This ring shows the lovely balance that can be created in a three stone ring.
