I contacted David Klass to see if he could set my teal tourmaline.
You may remember this pic.

I gave him some inspiration pics and he sent me the CADs fairly quickly. Unfortunately, they just didn't feel right (I just wasn't in love) so I switched up the project and sent him completely different pics. To his credit, DK just rolled with it and considering how busy he is, that is saying something. :clap:

When I received my new CADs, I knew I had made the right decision. I felt the excitement I had been anticipating.
Here's a pic of the CADs.

I made a few minor changes to them (where did I put those updated ones?) and we were off to production.



Just today, DK just emailed me to let me know my ring was completed. I am so excited because I wasn't expecting such a fast turnover.
Here are some of the pics he sent me.

Beautiful ring. Well done for not settling and trusting your gut. Love the ever-so-slight taper up of the shank as it nears the halo. Perfect proportions of the halo to the stone. And of course that color! Okay, I admit it - I like your ring a little ;))

Hand shots, hand shots, hand shots...

Wow! Elle what a beautiful ring. Like the others I can't wait to see hand shots. The tourmaline looks so vivid with all those diamonds. I like the size of the halo diamonds. Congrats!

:love: I've loved your stone ever since you first posted it, so I was super curious how it was going to be set. I'm glad you listened to your gut and went a different direction. I'd say it paid off!! It's a beautiful ring, elle. Well done! Lots of hand shots, please, when you receive it. :naughty:

That stone is a beauty! Love the color and cut on it! :love: :love: Do you know what size diamonds David used on the halo? Asking from curiosity as I start working on another ring ( :shhh: :shifty: )

LisaRN, Lovinggems, & Picante27 thank you guys. I appreciate the nice comments. You guys are the best! :D

Arcadian The halo stones are 1.7mm. They actually look bigger than I thought they would (no complaints here :naughty: ).
I can't wait to see some details on this new secret project. ;-)

Acinom I'm pretty excited about the profile too! Thank you!

Somehow, I managed to miss the delivery guy yesterday, even though I was home. You can imagine my disappointment. :(sad
It's finally in my hands and I love it so much.
I wanted to share a couple quick pics.

Thank you GlamMosher, Laila619, Mochicko,and SparkliesLuver!

I'm wearing it to work today (duh), with my pink sapphire band. It's an odd mix but I'm loving it anyway. :lol:
(sorry about the terrible quality. Cell phone & office lighting...not a great mix).
