Thanks. I handed the stones off today so I’m in the 2 week wait now!
I miss having a sapphire ring so much. (And no, never did find the lost ones for people wondering)
Ok, I'm super late to this party, but I want to throw in my 2c regardless.
@whitewave, I LOVE your new sapphire. And I think your diamonds look fabulous.
But I would love to see a somewhat slimmer band. I think the balance is better if the diameter of the stones is markedly bigger than the width of the band, and I think that the current width of the band is too close to the width of the diamonds, meaning that the diamonds - and even the sapphire - get slightly lost in the band, and there's a tad too much metal in the overall look.
I know you like a big look (I mean - don't we all?? ) - but I feel as tho that much metal makes the stones look *smaller* rather than larger. Would you consider a taper? It would emphasize the trellis look and put a greater emphasis on the stones.
As I said - just my 2c.
Of course and absolutely! I think it would add a degree of elegance without compromising the 'kapow!' factor or its sturdiness. Definitely worth considering, at least. I think you might also find it a tad more comfortable to wear, especially if, like me, you're prone to finger muffin top!
Ok so I asked for a trellis which is the CAD he gave me. He is going to give me some new CADs tomorrow and we will go from there.
My knees are great! It was definitely worth it and I’m glad I did them at the same time. I don’t walk like a supermodel lol but it’s all good. I get around well, and I’m very grateful for the technology that allows me to travel without any pain.
Yeah, I still get bummed out about the rings. I still can’t get over it. I mean I know in the grand scheme of things, this is so very small, but it’s so weird that I didn’t even know they were missing until I went to wear them. I’m not beating myself up about it anymore. It’s just a mystery.
David did say he could taper it a bit so I’ll see what he can come up with tomorrow.
I hope you are feeling better.
i must have missed a whole chunk of PS
its very good you have this beautiful new ring to look forward to
