    It’s Spring and flowers are in bloom! I have a beautiful new flower too! My 2.81 OEC is sitting pretty in a modified version of Victor’s Adriana. I had him add a cathedral shouldered band to the lovely lotus petal basket. It’s feminine and curvy and petal-luscious! The entire ring including the delicate petal basket is 100% hand forged. Extremely challenging to do according to Victor, whom I want to thank for being so lovely to work with!

    The first photo is Victor’s the others are my less than great iPhone photos. Thanks for looking :wavey:

    Your new ring is stunning! Victor did such a great job. His work is top notch as always.
    I love the prongs (they look like tiny hearts from the top), the beautiful melee, the profile and it looks great stacked.
    You have such a stunning OEC. What are the specs?

    I have always loved the head of this setting but felt like something was missing. Couldn’t figure it what it was. Those cathedral shoulders really do it for me. Makes it wonderfully complete and gives the entire ring such a lovely flow. Congratulations on such a successful project. Victor works his magic every time. Enjoy this lovely very single second.

    Oh my word, your ring is absolutely gorgeous! I saw this beauty featured in Victor's Instagram and instantly fell in love with it. :love: I have always adored the Adriana setting with its incredible petal profile, but never considered it as I gravitate toward cathedral settings. Well, I must say that this is my very favorite version of it, and as always Victor's work is pure perfection!! :love: Please feel free to post as many photos as you'd like!

    Just beautiful!!! What a gorgeous setting to go with that beautiful diamond. I love the cathedral shoulders- and the basket and prongs- scrumptious and romantic!

    Thank you all so much for your lovely comments!

    @m-2-b Thank you!

    @canuk-gal Thank you, that means a lot!

    @dtnyc Thank you! I can’t stop looking at her gallery! :love:

    @PintoBean Thank you! I love the fluidity of the head too, and the
    integration of the shoulders.

    @Acinom Thank you for you sweet comments. Victor did an amazing job! My OEC is 2.81 M VS1

    @LLJsmom Thank you. That’s the way I felt too. Loved the basket. I have always been drawn to cathedral type shoulders. They are feminine to me and create a beautiful flow. Victor did such an outstanding job with the cathedral too, it curves in the most beautiful way!

    @hathalove Thank you! I can’t stop staring at this beautiful profile!

    @yennyfire Thank you so much!

    @carbonfan Thank you! The cathedral definitely adds a feminine touch I think. It was a little scary tweaking the prototype, but Victor never disappoints! I had total confidence in his creation of this ring.

    @MissGotRocks Thank you so much! I can’t wait to see your new upgrade!

    @apacherose Thank you! I wanted feminine, curvy and romantic. This definitely checks the boxes for me!

    @HappyNewLife and @lissyflo Thank you both so much! :wavey:

    @ceg Thanks ceg! I think my stone performs better in this setting. Maybe due to the additional light from the side that it was getting in the old setting.

    @Queenie60 Thank you! my OEC is 2.81 M VS1

    @Alex T Happy days indeed! Thank you! :wavey:

    @Aino Thank you! I really think my stone looks better in this setting, and I think this setting works nicely for either an OEC or a MRB

    @Catmom Thank you! That means a lot!

    Congrats Bonfire!! A reset is the perfect way to start Spring - you sound so happy with your new ring :mrgreen2::appl:

    And oh, I want to kiss that fuzzy nose :love:


    Just a quick heads up that one of your pics has Victor's stamp in the corner - you might want to edit that one and repost, as it'll likely be removed and this thread needs the pic :bigsmile:
