    I was robbed one day and lost everything. I'm married 36 years this year. It took many years to.even want a new ring and then many mistakes to get the one I loved. I purchased a vintage Art Deco.ring with an old mine stone in the center. While it was a beautiful.setting, it wasn't for me. I had had a solitaire as my original ring. I gave the redesign job to Caysie at CVB designs. I think I can finally close this horrible chapter. I am beyond thrilled.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is one of my favorite settings! It is reminiscent of a Tacori that was popular a few years ago, but this takes it to a much higher level with those wonderful French cuts. Every single thing about your new ring is perfect and I hope you love wearing it every day, and the memory of losing your first one fades completely! I hope the next 36 year are perfectly wonderful for you and your hubby.

    I’m so sorry. I was robbed of a few treasured pieces last year by someone I trusted in my home. Justice was served but I never got my pieces back. It’s still something I don’t like to talk about. I’m glad you’re at peace now, and the ring is beautiful.

    This ring is absolutely divine! I love the stone with its beautiful facets and that gorgeously large culet, and of course the frenchies are exquisite. Caysie does stunning work. Curious to know: What is the color and carat weight of your stone?

    I'm so glad there was a happy ending to your sad story. Enjoy this lovely ring for many years to come!!

    That is a stunning setting transformation! I'm so sorry you had to go through this horrible experience, I also lost some things to a home robbery many years ago & it's devastating.

    But wowzers! From your first picture I thought this was an AVC, but then scrolling down realised it's a true antique - and it is stunning. Please post many more pictures & profile shots!

    Thanks so much I love the character too, which I hated in the other setting I just felt it was swallowed up in it. I'm slightly obsessed with the cutlet now that is in it's new home. It has been reborn. 20190825_101407.jpg

    I am sorry. It is horrible really so I understand. I hope you too can make peace with it. I am now purchasing heirlooms to leave my legacy since all others are gone. It has been therapeutic.

    Hi. I love working with Caysie. Her detail oriented nature makes me happy. The stone is 1.55ct J/S1.
