@shicara @nala @Diamond Girl 21 @Alex T @tyty333 @Morenita21 @Slick1 @anne_h @Tekate @MakingTheGrade @MrsBlue @ariel144 @luxe @DorotheaBrooke @LisaRN -- I so appreciate all the kind words! :kiss2: Caysie and Mark did a wonderful job and I definitely feel SUPER lucky to be the caretaker of this ring!

This is glorious! It was quite glorious before as well! But it’s simply divine so I’m not mad at you for changing her dress. Lol.
A girl's gotta have a new dress every so often, amirite?? ;))
Even though I really want to see the side shots - not waiting to reply.
Best In Show.

:swoon:
Dang, it’s perfection.:love:
I knew I'd better not forget the side shots for you, dear Rfisher! 8) I hope they were up to par!!
Wowzas! Gorgeous ring, I lovvvvvved your halo but this is stunningly beautiful. Those side stones are perfect and it is just huge! Mmmmmm

Ps love your stacking combos
I loved my halo, too, but then my wandering eye wandered back over to 3-stones (my first love). DOH! :bigsmile:
Oh hello there beautiful :kiss2:

Welcome back to threestones @KristyDarling :cool2::geek2:
Those stones are fabulous together and HUGE on you and I LOVE the setting!!!

Edit - Love this stack especially :love:

Thanks for the welcome back! I forgot how much I enjoy the coverage of 3-stones! And I really like this stack, too. I think the scalloped band helps the w-bands to stand out more!
Once I catch my breath and get over my envy :kiss2:;)2...ok there, I think I’ve pulled it together. Holly F***ing Grail! Spectacular chunks of fire in a perfect setting. Bravissimo!
LOL, I had to catch my breath when I first saw her in her new dress, too!
It's a work of art! And my goodness you have plenty of stacking options! Wow - just absolutely beautiful!
Thank you! I really enjoy switching up the bands every day and experimenting with different looks. It's a ton of fun!
Finally - I feel like I've been waiting a long time to see that ring but it was worth it!! It is just gorgeous and you've got many band variations to change it up. I am still a sucker for that plain gold band or that plain gold band and the other gold band beneath it. I know the band gets swallowed a bit but you can still see that there is a wedding band. I like that look better than the prong set bands but the French cut band is perfect with it too!

It is just glorious and I hope you enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks for so many pictures and videos - you know we love them!!
Aw, thank you MGR! It's interesting to see how most people are gravitating toward the gold band(s). I totally get it - simple is often best!
Gorgeous is such an understatement for this amazing piece! It looks amazing set in that warm gold and totally divine paired up with your bands!!
Thanks! It really is a thrill to observe the contrast between the crispiness of the diamonds/stark platinum against the rich yellow gold. I'm loving the two-tone!
Wow, Kristy!!!! That's fantastic! This is three stone perfection! :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2: Beautiful diamonds and Caysie just did her usual magic!

Your side stones are gorgeous and are perfect for your center stone! I am curious, though, if Mark meant they are branded "True Antique" cushions since he used those words. Leon Mege has them on his site, and I know from years ago Mark and Leon were sourcing those antique style cushion cut stones from the same place. So it just made me wonder. If they are antiques, he needs to call them something else! :lol: You know I love newly cut antique style stones and antique diamonds, so one is not "better" than the other. What matters in this case is that you have 3 beautiful well matched stones regardless of age!


The whole reason I have not reset my AVR after 6+ years is that I waver between an antique style solitaire with tri-wire shank and shoulder petals OR a three stone! Caysie does both so well and it is really hard to choose just one! Yours really might tip me back over to the 3-stone side!
Thanks, DS! Yes, I was happy to find stones that matched so well despite them having a possible 100+ year age difference! And I hear you on the setting indecision. You really can't lose with either an antique style soli or a 3-stone...why not acquire more diamonds and do both?? :twisted:

As for your question: No, Mark did not refer to the sides as "True Antiques"...that was my own terminology. I just wanted to make it clear that the sides are indeed ladies of a certain age. 8)
Wow!!! What a gorgeous ring! It is not often that a ring stuns me but boy yours is a stunner, Kristy! I am not even much of a three stone person but I can't get enough of your pictures. The sparkles coming off those stones are mesmerizing.
I never get tired of looking at these sparkles! Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

Awww, you are so kind! I agree we need a THUD emoji because every day I'm in awe of all the gorgeous jewels around here!
Swoon!

It's a masterpiece @KristyDarling :kiss2: Wear in health and blingy joy!

I must add while I am not a 3 stone girl this ring could make one of me!
Please come over to the 3-stone side!! Can you imagine Bubbalah with a sparkly friend on either side of her?? I CAN :twisted:
Wow, gorgeous, not to mention the finger coverage!!! :kiss2:
I've always been a size ho -- the coverage is a very decadent indulgence!!!
Oh. My. GAWD.

Dead. I’m dead.

Can we use adult words on PS? Because holy sh....that ring is PERFECT.
LOL :mrgreen:. Thank you!

Thank you! After reading everyone's comments, I'm feeling extra appreciative of the gold bands, too!

Aww, thanks Yennyfire! I do love the versatility of having lots of band options! I'm thinking about turning the 7-stone band into a half-hoop by adding 3-4 more diamonds, setting them in antiquey plat prongs, and then making the shank part in 18k YG with Victorian-esque engraving. Then I can turn the band depending on whether I want a blingier or simpler look!

I have learned to never say never because I never thought I would enjoy wearing an ER with a halo. LOL so you never know and your three stone would be the one to convert me. It truly is THUDalicious and Swoon worthy in every way!:kiss2:

When I first gazed upon your 3 stone @KristyDarling this was my reaction!

I see you've changed your avatar, @KristyDarling...gorge!!

Btw, love your stacking rings- most esp the french cut eternity, plain yellow gold band and the teeny round eternity. May I ask where you got the last one mentioned?

@KristyDarling oh my goodness your ring is stunning!!! I'm doing the thud but thank goodness I'm laying down. Your ring is just gorgeous. I love the 3 stones and your setting. I would not get anything done with that thing on! Congratulations on your stunning ring, have soo much fun with it!

ETA: Need to see more videos, please...the weekend is coming and it's way more gratifying to watch this beauty than, say, Game of Thrones reruns --esp not after that epic disaster known as Season 8.
