@KKJohnson @Dancing Fire @junebug17 @bling_dream19 @fuzzypill @HNGN @arhzay - Thank you!! My ring feels loved and appreciated! :D

^^ Thought I'd share a shot that I just took this morning ^^. I have more photos of this ring on my phone than my kids or dog :oops2:

Kristy...

:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:

THREE STONE PERFECTION
...I must say that this ring looks pretty spectacular IRL on both you and @luckyhonu ! ;)) When are you guys going to cross over to the 3-stone side?? You know you want to! :twisted:

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?
Haha, it only took me a gazillion years to finally update my avatar from that ancient, long-gone, and very blurry-looking solitaire! The teeny round eternity was from Mark Turnowski (Brilliantly Engaged). He does great work!!

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.
Your wish is my command! Here's one from this morning:


....and another from a few weeks ago. :)

It's entirely possible that this is the most beautiful 3 stone on the face of the planet. I absolutely love it! Congratulations on an iconic beauty!

That ring is absolutely beautiful- it works all together so well. It's a jaw dropping ring! It is gorgeous, elegant and fabulous.

Squeeeeeeeeeel!!! So beautiful. I have my own solitaire to 3-stone conversion with CVB in the works right now. Shipping my stones out to her on Monday (2.3ct center with 80 pointers on each side. Alternating rectangle and square french cuts on the shoulders with some dainty milgrain thrown in). The cads look amazing and I can't wait to see the real thing in person. So happy to hear your experience was so great with her. Mine has been so fun so far. Congrats on that stunner.

Yippee Ka-yay!! I was thinking about how to incorporate french cuts with my 3 stone iteration but sadly had budget constraints (really tapped out because of the Enchanted Diamonds scam). So it's just a plain old 3 stone with an engraved shank (also made by Caysie).

I can't wait to see your ring!! Please post an SMTB thread when you're ready, @itskcc.

And yes, I'm here checking out KristyDarling's beauty again...she's really something, isn't she??
Sigh...

You are seriously the queen of three-stones! Always the right proportions and set at perfect angles! I've loved your cushion in its halo but LOVE the new setting. Without the halo it almost feels like it's a different stone. The facets are now more apparent. I can't believe Mark was able to find such a perfect pair of side stones. Congrats!!!

Holy moly, what a beauty!! Congratulations!! :love: :love:
Thanks, Sarah! I'm so happy with this ring!

WOW!!!!!!!! This is amazing.
Thank you for the kind words!

Oh. My. God. :kiss2:
LOL. That's what I said when I opened the box!!

Coming from you, the queen of sublimely perfect 3-stones, this means a lot!!! Thank you, @mrs-b !!

What a a ring! Congrats on getting it just right.
Aw, thank you so much! Caysie and Mark nailed it!!

How exciting!!! Your ring sounds AH-MAZING! It's going to be a total sparkle bomb with the french cuts on the shoulders!! Are the 3 stones OECs or MRBs or some other shape?? Will it be set in gold or platinum? I can't wait to see!

This sounds incredible. PLEASE share more details about your ring! Is it currently in production?? Though I have a feeling you may have already told me about your ring...I've been so forgetful lately!! :oops2:

Hi, Carebear!! Great to "see" you! Thanks for the kind words, and I totally agree with your observations! The facets are the first thing I notice now when I look at my ring. When it was a halo, all I could think whenever I looked at it was This Is A HALO Ring, and there was less of a sense of focus on the diamond (for me anyway). KWIM?? Don't know if I'm expressing myself very effectively!

I saw your ring in your avatar and I HAD to find its thread because WOW. I can't describe how badly I wish I could reach through my screen and touch it! I'm mesmerized and getting lost in those stones and those pastel sparkles. How do you get anything done??

All of your choices for this piece of art were perfect. The Maria is my favorite three-stone setting and I strongly considered it as well. This ring is HG status and one of the most beautiful rings I've ever seen! The yellow gold is so yummy and I love the two-tone.

Awww, thanks so much for the sweet compliments! I admit that I'm constantly distracted by my ring. My kids and husband roll their eyes and say "Oookaaay Mom" whenever they catch me staring at my hand. :lol-2:

I'm waiting with bated breath for YOUR Caysie/OWD creation!! The ring will have all the exquisite, delicate little details that CvB is famous for and will be the most beautiful home for your gorgeous honkin' rock!!! Tell your BF that he better freaking hurry up and propose because it's not cool to string all of us PSers along for too long! ;)2 (it's all about us, LOL!)

Hahaha thank you! He does need to hurry because it totally IS all about PSers! I even told him it would make sense to the vendors if he just asked for “Pricescope Quality” LOL

...which is the aesthetic I was going for. 8) I wanted the visual drama of big fire and colors and sparkle, set within a minimal and clean yet romantic/historic setting.Thanks for your kind words!

Whelp, this is pretty much nirvana.

This ring is beyond amazing in every way, and, while I know I don't "know" you, this ring seems so totally "you" to me.

I have always thought your cushion was tdf, and love the gorgeous cushions sides- how perfect!!!

Love every detail. Looks amazing.

Congratulations!!!

Thank you so much, @apacherose ! You're right that this ring is very "me." It's similar in spirit to the ring that started it all for me (Leon Mege 3-stone with MRB and pear sides). I now have experience with a halo, various solitaires, and 3-stones....and I can conclude that 3-stones are my sweet spot. :)

Oh my goodness this is absolutely amazing! I about fell over when I first saw this on Caysie's IG! This has to be one of the most glorious rings of all time. The diamonds are AMAZING! and the setting doesn't get any better. I love every detail. Including the out of this world finger coverage. It's literally the perfect ring

Wow! The most beautiful 3 stone I've ever seen. Simply beautiful.
I second that!...and quick question, when you said the center stone was a modern stone cut into an antique cut...who cut it? I'd be very interested on how to get one. Gorgeous cushions cut like this are soooo rare. I have been hunting for an antique cushion with these proportions or possibly an antique EC or oec.

I'm blushing! Thank you! :kiss2:

Sorry, I wasn't very clear - it was not originally a modern stone that was re-cut to look antique. I just meant that the diamond was cut in modern times to look like an antique cushion. Mark Turnowski was the one who sourced it for me. Hope that helps? 8)
