What ArtDecoLover71 said. :)

Could you post pictures of it in its silver setting? I wanna see it in all of its beautiful incarnations!

ETA: d'oh, you did! Apologies, tapatalk eliminates some pictures for reasons known only to itself. That'll teach me to check the web view before I post!

Thank you emeraldluvr & _lovesvintage_!
I tell you what - I am SO happy I had it set in its current silver mounting at the beginning of this process so I can at least still wear it. Its taking a loooong time to work out the details. I'd rather do it right the first time and not be disappointed once its finished.

So its been awhile since my last update.... I contacted several vendors really just to take a shot...... And Adam had a pair of old cut pears!! So I'm doing three stone! Here a pic of the sketch (this was done before I found the pears so the sketch shows bullets for sides) an pics of the stones together.....

Oh wow!!! Thanks for the update! I totally understand wanting to get it right the first time...that is how I work too. :) I can't believe you were able to source two more antique pears as sides!!! Amazing! Now I really can't wait to see the finished ring. I am so living vicariously through you on this project. So excited for you!!! Please update as you can.

Thank you all! Sorry for the late update, things have changed a bit. My three pears are off with SK being set as we type! I'm hopeful to have the ring late this week/early next week. Here's a couple of pics SK sent me of the progress..... Its REALLY hard to be patient!!!!
