Hello, PS'ers!
Been looking for a durable stone for an everyday ring or maybe just an excuse to buy another yummy gemstone :) and the marriage anniversary seemed the best time to do this, I mostly buy stones on special occasions/anniversaries. Seen some nice Chrysos around here and decided I want one so I went for it. Got a great deal on it, wasn't hard to decide, stats are: 1.5 ct (7 X 6 mm).
Will first show you the vendor photos until I take photos of the stone in hand.

The stone is yellow-green and to me looks more saturated in real life than in the photos and sparkles like crazy, these pictures really don't do it justice.

Thanks!
I'm thinking two trillions 3-4 mm(or round ones) as sidestones, probably moissy if I don't find white sapphires. They must be of similar hardness, wouldn't wanna go lower than 8.

Thanks guys!

No, not rose gold, since I have lots or Morganite that will be set in rose gold, I want something different. I like really yellow or green gold as it is called. My wedding ring seems peachy in tone but it's not really rose gold and I always wanted a piece made of yellow gold, not peachy not rose but the yellowest yellow if that makes any sense :angel:

Thanks, Rockinruby!
Just hope to set it next year, I always say that...next year :wall: and keep buying more stones because I know the stones will sell quickly. I actually have a gallery of gems I wasn't quick enough to buy and sold out that could actually have their own topic :lol:

Ha! I seem to be joining the "next year" club too! :naughty: Do you have any setting inspirations for your "next year" chryso project yet? :wavey:

I've started collecting two years ago(about the time I discovered PS) .... a dozen stones later and none is set yet...

I've thought about it, initially I wanted to bezel it along with two round sidestones of white, yellow or green colour but then choosing side stones would be another hunt (even though I found a gem and bead shop that sells inexpensive 3mm mint-ish sapphires, (probably treated but that's ok).

Then I wanted to just bezel the stone as a solitaire with a milgrain so I can wear it without thinking I might chip the girdle or something and concentrate on a nice custom setting instead of side stones(haven't chased this idea out of my mind yet).

That is until I saw the stone itself and thought a bezel might make it look smaller and less sparkly than it actually is, and I've made a little experiment, put two 4 mm CZ's beside it to see how it would look with white side stones. If I were to choose the side stones options I would probably go for a claw setting and ask that the Chryso be held by 6 prongs instead of 4, just to protect the girdle better and would also prefer white trillions as side stones. At the moment my mind is not set on anything, any of the above would be ok.

And to answer your question, no, I don't have a particular setting in mind to draw inspiration from, I like several:
Trillion side stones:https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/red-trillions-for-leon-mege-3-stone-ring.21845/page-2
puppyguts' awesome solitaire: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/show-us-your-chrysoberyls.202304/page-9']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/show-us-your-chrysoberyls.202304/page-9[/URL]
OTL's ring: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/chrysoberyl-ring-and-some-loose-stones.201521/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/chrysoberyl-ring-and-some-loose-stones.201521/[/URL]

For the trillion setting, I'm sure I don't want a trellis or anything set too high. The example I gave is close to what I have in mind but I will not copy anything.
I like both milgrain and plain bezel.


Che sera sera
