And here is the 14kt white gold setting he has ordered. Sorry, the picture is from the jeweler''s catalog, so it''s a little blurry. The sidestones will be tsavorite garnets.

I''m no expert, but just want to say congratulations and I hope you have that ring on your finger soon. It must be excruciating waiting for it, but it''s going to be a beauty.

Hi FlameOut,

The trellis setting was just from a paper catalog of a Mom and Pop jeweler my boyfriend goes to church with in Grand Rapids, MI. I could probably find out exactly what it is if you''re interested. There is a very similar setting on Blue Nile available in 18kt white/yellow gold and platinum: http://www.bluenile.com/product_details.asp?oid=6488 for white gold and http://www.bluenile.com/product_details.asp?oid=5922 for platinum. Hope this helps!

I''m not Belle, but "tsav" is just short for tsavorite garnet, a green garnet often used as a harder substitute for fragile emeralds. I''ll be using those as my sidestones. You can check out the colored gemstone forum for pictures of them, particularly a gorgeous ring made for Pokey.

ooooh, lovely!! I love the idea of tsavorite sidestones as well. It's going to be a very elegant and unique ring.

EDIT: I just noticed the girdle thickness on the stone ranges from VT to T. You might want to make sure with an appraiser than the VT girdle doesn't create durability issues.

How exciting!!! I can''t wait to see it once it''s finished. I love that you are doing tsavorite for the sides.

Another image of my diamond taken from a scanner--my boyfriend needs a digital camera with a macro setting!

Thanks for all your compliments for my ring idea! I'm very excited, and I can't wait until we find a great pair of tsavorites!
