Hello again,

Thanks again to everyone for all your input and guidance while I searched for my stone and figured out how I wanted to set it for my "Engagement-ring" (I'm already married). :) I was very nervous the whole way through, as it's my very first custom piece and it's an important one!! :loopy:

...Well.... I was just sent pictures of my completed ring, it's done! Because of all the wonderful help I have gotten from this site (both from posting, and from lurking), I thought I ought to post a pic or two. :naughty:

Oh I reeeeally really like that! It's gorgeous! What an amazing colour of garnet! Can you give me some details? Where is the stone from? The inspiration for the ring design?

Thank you so very much everybody!

So what felt like an endless wait, it arrived today!

Pictures do not do this ring justice!!! I have to admit, I was *a little* worried about the color with the stone set from the vendor pics. But, when I opened it up a few minutes ago... Oh my goodness!! :clap: :dance:

Here are some of my own pics that I just hastily took from my iphone. Again, so difficult to capture in a photo but the pics look a bit closer to reality (at least to my untrained eye).

Very beautiful. I like the stone's different looks in various lighting conditions.

Pure perfection!!! I think I asked in your other thread as well and didn't get a response, but are garnets safe for everyday wear as an engagement ring? I already have a sapphire engagement ring but the Mahenge garnets just sing to me :love:

I had actually wondered the same thing. I went to buy a really gorgeous purple garnet from one of the vendors on the list, and he told me I'd be better off not doing that. Which realllyyyyy disappointed me, as I loved the color of that stone. Mine is also for an engagement ring. OP taking the leap is making me wonder if that purple Garnet is still available... :doh:

Gorgeous ring!!
