I got my Leon Megé!! Just to update everyone, I bought this 1.29 asscher from WF in the spring and couldn’t decide what to do with it although I knew I loved pavé. After seeing all the Bay Area Bling (at least one Leon Megé setting) I got inspired enough to give Leon a call. I found him very nice to talk to, we went over my ideas, he made suggestions, and then I waited for my surprise package. It did not have to come via Brinks truck like Widget’s!!

So here it is. It is probably the smallest Leon Megé I’ve ever seen since most of his work is with 2 ct and larger stones. I spent quite a bit of my budget on the setting but for me it’s as important at the stone. And I can’t say enough about the near-perfect pavé. It’s like a miniature work of art. I love it!!

I have to get some hand shots taken by a friend who has a good macro lens. But these are the photos they sent me.

Thank you for the compliments!

It took them about 6 1/2 weeks but in addition to that I wasted a few weeks because I sent them my stone and FORGET to fax them the contract! So I was imagining they were working on it but, of course, they didn''t start until I signed the contract. Oh well, once I sent them the paperwork it took 6 1/2 weeks. (maybe they felt sorry for me since they had my stone since September!) But I think they quote 5-7 weeks. Hope yours get to you soon!

Thanks, Widget. Yes, his work is even more amazing in real life than the pictures can ever show. The pavé beads are so tiny and perfect even with my lope I can barely see them. Yet there is a look of it being handmade. It was worth the wait and anticipation! And I found him very nice to work with. I''m in love!!!

I''m happy your wait is over and agree that it''s definately worth the wait. I was quoted five weeks and it''s only been two and half...so I''m patiently waiting.
I can''t wait to see more pictures. I love the double claw prongs!!!

Thank you, KristyDarling. I do feel pretty good wearing it but I realize I have "bad" hand habits, like I sit on my hands! So I am afraid to wear it all the time. I have to retrain myself to be a dainty doily and learn some feminine hand behavior!

GORGEOUS! I used to have my heart set on an ascher, then after finding this site, I''ve seen so many other beautiful rings/stones I was straying...but after looking at that beauty I think I''m going full circle back to an ascher! Please post hand pics!!!

Totally gorgeous and perfect!! Was that one on their website? It looks like ideas from different rings, but a total original. Not sure, but it looks partial pave on the prongs, diamond is set nice and low, and the prongs kind of change angle half way up. I LOVE it all!! I would totally buy that setting.

It''s so beautiful, it''s making me nervous about having my ring custom made by anyone but LM. Congratulations!!
