Thanks, Missy! I'm really happy with how it turned out.
This wil be my platinum e-ring, to go with all my platinum bands. The proportions have been chosen accordingly and - after a pretty good play with everything yesterday - i think it will do exactly what I want it to do.
On the other hand, it's yellow gold, rather than platinum, which is the main color metal I wear, ergo my 3.4 H VS1 ACA is my larger and main diamond ring (the VC ring I just bought has a 2.2ct center) - currently waiting for a re-set. That stone will be upgraded over time - with a view to hitting between 4.5 and 5ct. To get to that size in an H VS1 will cost me some big bucks, so this will take time; my 60th birthday is in 3 years, so DH has said that will be the time to 'go large or go home'!
Yes - the slope is perfecto! I like *very* sloped sides, and this was perfect for me. I always want my rings to curve around my finger, as opposed to laying across it like a stick. Victor's aesthetic is very, very good.
Beautiful from all angles! Can I say though that I'm a big fan of the side profile with the slope? As you mentioned, it seems like every proportion/angle/direction/cut/etc.... was all custom for your lovely finger. Enjoy!
That is so sleek and lovely! I personally really adore little pears or hearts as side stones... they are a touch of unusual with the traditional 3 stone ring in adding that particular, sleek sort of "shape" to it.
Thanks, @stonewell - I'm *very* happy with the proportions of it. I've had the pears for a long time, and I waited some years, trolling Victor's site regularly, waiting for a G colored diamond around 2.2ct to come up. When one exactly 2.2ct came up, I couldn't believe my good fortune!
@PierreBear - I agree! I really can't fault this ring! Thank you for your kind comments, and I'm with you - I LOVE the side stone slope!
Hi @LLJsmom The stones in the band are asscher cut - true, full, asschers. It's one of my favorite rings and it's a joy to wear. It used to be in a horrible, prong setting - HEAPS of metal, and it cut me more than once from pressing into the flesh of the side fingers!! DKJ re-set this for me a couple of years ago, and I've never looked back!
Thanks @xcacaox - I love this shape, too! I think it's very flattering on the finger, and has a very fluid look. It also doesn't hurt that Victor's metal work is SO fine and SO delicate - no excess metal in this baby!!
@mrs-b I just tuned back in and am very sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery and wanted to send lots of hugs and good thoughts your way for a seamless procedure and speedy recovery!!! We are all here for you!! <3
Thank you all for your kind comments! This ring does EVERYthing I wanted it to, so I'm very, very happy with it. Years ago, I would have never thought I'd own such a glorious ring! The idea of having a ring like this as my 'second string' platinum piece would have blown my mind. I'm always going to be grateful for the wonderful things I have, and the awesome husband who is always on board with my particular projects!
And thanks for your warm wishes re my upcoming procedure. It's not for a while year (8 weeks), but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't already getting tense about it! However, I'm currently anesthetizing the nervousness with bling projects! Seems to work pretty well.
So happy for you @mrs-b. Another question. How do your eyes like the sparkle of the pear next to the round. Can you distinguish the center shape from the sides or does it all blend into a chunk of bling? Up close? From a distance? Thanks for indulging me with all these observations.
Sending out loving vibes to both you & your DH pertaining to your upcoming surgery; I'm certain his heart will stop with yours, until he knows you're alive, well & in recovery. Open heart surgery is no joke. Many prayers for a successful surgery, and a swift & mild recovery.
The ring is TDF!! VC does it, AGAIN!! I've said it before & I'll say it, again...I can't wait to add a VC creation to my collection!!
I can't wait to see parts II & III!!! Much love to you!!!
