    Yeah it ended up being pretty large, no problem with that! The engagement was well over five years ago but still something to celebrate!

    Thanks!

    Thank you, and for your comments on my other thread! It's appreciated.

    What a gorgeous design!!!
    Did you design it together with David Klass? The center stone is amazing and is so well framed by the halo diamonds. The ring looks stunning on your hand. Definitely a ring to love for a lifetime.
    Enjoy wearing your beauty and please post more pics!

    Thank you so much.
    Thank you acinom, that is a great compliment coming from you as some of your rings are amongst my absolute favourites! My threads on the design and my ideas go back to last summer when I was initially looking for the stone. Basically it's a modern interpretation of a vintage design. The OO is obviously a modern style cut so I wanted to go for a modern look but it needed to be a bit quirky too and with plenty of finger coverage. On my last thread I had lots of help to say the least and changed direction on some elements!

    I love it! It does have a modern and vintage-y feel all at the same time--you did a great job designing it. Enjoy!

    I absolutely love this! It's a genuine piece of art. It has a striking presence on your hand yet is also very airy and delicate. Just breathtaking. Will you wear a wedding band with it, or go solo?

    Ha pleased to have fulfilled that hope

    Thank you

    Thanks though I don't know know if I can solely take credit for designing it!

    Thank you; those are lovely things to hear. In answer to your question, I tried it on with a very thin yellow gold band earlier and was pleasantly surprised, so I may do something like that.

    LOVE the profile and under carriage. SWOON! And I think a simple think yellow gold band would be indeed perfect with your magnificent ring.:love:
    Thank you for the extra photos!

    Yeah he did a good job! It wasn't too hard a job taking the extra photos ;-). Thanks the vote of confidence on the gold band.
