So overall, I like the ring a lot. The yellow gold makes the color pop and I LOVE the curves and low profile.

The slight criticism is that the semi bezel isn''t perfectly center and symmetrical and the semi bezel covers what in my opinion, is a lot of the stone. It makes it look kind of roval instead of round. And it was delayed a few different times. But I''m also super anal, so take all that with a grain of salt.

Anyways, on to photos!

That's all I have for now, will take some when the sun comes back up later this week.

Oh, and hubby and I just bought a house! Super exciting, and it's a beautiful home with a big blooming magnolia tree in the front yard. The downside is, no more new projects.

So I'll have to live vicariously through you guys!

Here are the vendor photos for comparison.

MTG,
Gorgeous, and I'm so glad you set it in yellow gold. It really does so much for that color of tourmaline.

Congratulations on your new house. How exciting!!!

It''s actually our first home, so we''re getting to know the joy of having a morgage, lol.

Here''s a quick photo, I just wanted to show how low low low the profile is. I love it! It''s like it just melts into my hand.

Now wait a minute...yellow gold, semi bezel, super-low profile...are you sure you didn''t pick up some telepathic instructions from me on this one

It is pure gorgeousness!! Nothing can beat the yellow gold with that greenish blue color! I love the design of the ring too. As for the bezel, I think it''s only something you will notice, or can be seen in these hugly magnified pictures. On the hand it look luminous!!!

Thanks for all the compliments!

To be honest though, after wearing it all day...I''ve been questioning if it''s "my" color...it''s kind of a surreal and unnatural color, lol.
