As as many of you know I redid my engagement ring. Today I got the final result. I'll go into how awesome and amazing JA was to work with on another thread but believe me when I say they were phenomenal!

Size is loose to avoid fat fingers. Stones are all ks. Center is a. 84 vs1, first set of side stones are .64ctw and VVS2 and SI1. Last set are .3tcw

Set in unplated 14k WG

I am in love. Setting was amazing for the price. I still plan to go a master bench route in a few years but this is absolutely no slouch!

Enjoy :mrgreen:

Oh my gosh yes it feels a little TOO sparkly. I felt a tad self conscious wearing it to the stone today.

You'll get over that! Just wait until you have strangers comment on it, it's so fun! :naughty:

thanks yeah the sparkle is ridiculous. I think maybe because there are no prongs on the sides, really allows a LARGE flow of light in. I opened the box and it it took my breath away. I dont know what i was expecting but for some reason i wasnt expecting it to be this nice.

yeah the trinity will be the wedding band.

Gosh, it turned out gorgeous - and looks great with your Trinity! And the prongs look to be nicely finished claw-style!

(But for safety's sake I have to ask - from the pics the positioning of the 4 prongs holding your center stone are off to the sides only - does it feel securely set?)

yes very, but still feels safest to have insurance on it.

Oh wow, Niel, I absolutely LOVE it!!! It suits your finger so much more than the pear or the solitaire. You were made for this ring! Fabulous :appl:

Niel-That ring is fabulous :love: It really must sparkle like mad! I have to admit when you sold your pear I was a bit unsure, I thought it looked so old hollywood with the trinity and thought you might end up regretting it. But this looks even better :appl:
JA did a wonderful job on the setting and the graduation sizes look perfect. Sparkle on!

I had the same feeling about my pear. It'll be back someday. Probably with a yellow diamond or a sapphire though. It needs something other than a white diamond.

Your new ring is perfect as your engagement ring. I agree a yellow pear diamond would be a lovely RHR. Maybe an anniversary present :naughty:

It turned out so beautifully!! :love: I love the setting, and how the diamonds seem to float when looking at the top view, I really love that look! Looks so good with your trinity, but I also really like it on it's own. Enjoy all that blingy goodness! :appl:

I like the way you think.

im really happy I went for horizontal coverage over a 1 ct stone, which was the other option in my budget. Its an astonishing amount of sparkle, but at the same time i dont feel uncomfortable wearing it around my friends or the town (where most people have < .5 ct or just a super plain 1 ct princess)

Wow, looks great! I've wondered how my ering (3 stone with similar sizes) would look as a 5 stone. Now I can wonder no more! And with the Trinity too! Congrats!

Your set was really inspirational to me. But of course I had a lot more finger to cover so I had to add a set of stones.
