Hey guys!

Why should my SO have all the blingy goodness of a delicious colored diamond? He shouldn't!

And now... He doesn't! :naughty:

David and Jennifer from Diamonds by Lauren were such amazing and wonderful people to work with! Plus living close to NYC had a lot of benefits. Like dropping off my .84ct radiant fancy deep brownish yellowish diamond in person to David in his office. And then he brought out a smorgasbord of BLING. OMG if you're ever in NYC go and hang out in there. Your mind will be blown! It's great to see the other side of the biz too! He has the coolest job ever.

Anyways, back to the ring.

The SO's ring is gold and silver, done by Jessedanger of Etsy. So when I thought about my ring I wanted one in the same metals. It was daunting to ask some of PS's amazing vendors if they worked in silver. In the end, the customer service price and quality of DBL won out.

The semi-bezel is 18kt and the band is sterling with a satin finish. Oh I could continue to describe but hey pictures are like a 1000 words sooooo........

Thanks Kismet. They really did. Even though most of the ring is in silver, they treated me like gold.

Where did you get the stone from??
Thanks Amy- I love it too, it's a very copper color. I got it off ebay from bid4desire.

Great profile and it looks very nice on you :appl:
Thank you! I'm not usually one for ring profiles, but I love this one. It's on the verge of deco but subdued.

They most certainly did! Even though it wasn't a substantial purchase, they treated me like I was one of their most important customers.

I LOVE the way that ring came out! It's a beautiful stone, and the ring and stone are in perfect proportion for the size of your hand. It's really pretty much perfect!

davi_el_mejor, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you!
This was our first piece in Sterling silver, so quite a learning curve. I'm so glad you're pleased with it. Love your pictures, too.
