My ring arrived today!

Original thread about setting my stone:
Thread 'Help me with my setting for my old mine'

GIA diamond stats:
3.60 ct
VVS2
U/V color
9.25x8.77x 6.73

Setting:
Crafted by DK
950 RU platinum
18k yellow gold
22 G color VS single cut diamonds
2.5 mm shank (cast)
Size 5.25

Thank you to everyone who helped me through this process. When I first saw the stone I knew I wanted it right away. It was everything I love in an old cut: super warm, crisp pinwheel facet pattern, and major kozibe effect. Unfortunately planning the setting didn’t come as easily as finding the diamond. I’m a very indecisive person and I have so many ideas that I struggle to reel it in and make a decision. I really appreciate all of the guidance that I received when dreaming up this setting. I’m very pleased with how it turned out! The shank width is perfect! Thank you to those who suggested I go with 2.5mm. I appreciate @Cerulean for helping me make a decision by sharing the details of your stunning ring. I haven’t measured what it officially came out to but I’m happy with the finished shank width. The single cut melee is absolutely perfect! Thank you to @Karl_K for that recommendation. I decided to go with two tone for this piece because I LOVE the heft of platinum and the way it wears but I prefer the color of yellow gold. I wanted to embrace the warmth of my center stone with the yellow gold and create contrast against the white melee and platinum. I had originally planned on not adding milgrain so I was very surprised when I received a video of the finished piece with milgrain! Looking back, I completely understand how the miscommunication happened (one of my inspiration pictures had milgrain). Anyways, the miscommunication was meant to be because I absolutely love the milgrain. It’s delicate and well executed and just the absolute icing on this perfect cake!

I’ll be adding a ridiculous amount of pictures.

Absolutely gorgeous stone and ring - the proportions are perfect! And I’m a sucker for 2 tone. I hope you’ll definitely keep your other ring now, as these are such different looks!

It's magnificent and the mounting is perfect. The color play of that stone is absolutely amazing.:love: I love the bezel milgraining against the stone. It's a knockout.

Congratulations!! What a beautiful stone and ring. Old cuts in a bezel melt my heart. They are magical. The facets on your stone are so sharp and crisp. It looks stupendous on you. Wear it well and in good health.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments! I’m absolutely loving wearing my ring. She is my first bezel ring and is such an easy wear. She feels so durable but glamorous at the same time. I will probably spam you all with more pictures later today because I just can’t help myself. And to those who were concerned about Cleone’s fate; she is currently on my left hand! She’s definitely staying for now and I’m feeling extra fancy today with an old mine on each hand! 651DFFD6-DCFE-4C00-B54D-E3F7EBFF7778.jpeg
