Wow, Ellen, what a masterpiece! I love, love, LOVE the color of your stone. And in a Leon, to boot! Wear and enjoy in good health.
Aw, what a sweet post! Thank you.Date: 6/5/2008 4:56:36 PM
I saw this post several days ago, and have been coming back to it everyday - I cannot seem to tear my eyes off it. It was a very beautiful stone to begin with, but since you took the plunge and handed it over for recutting it has become a STUNNING stone! The fluidity of the stone and the setting together really does take my breath away. That is why I didn''t post right away. I had to let it sink in. I don''t have any stones like that that I could have recut but just the look of that ring makes me want to start my search for such a stone to have set in a ring like that.
Wow is all I can say!
Thanks for sharing your story. I am sure a lot of us sit back with jewellery that we have been given over the years, afraid to make the changes - perhaps we think that changing the setting or the stone will cause the giver to fade from our memory - far from it! I am sure your Grandmother is smiling - everytime you wear this ring and catch a glance of how beautiful it is you will think of her! Far better than having it gather dust in the jewellery box!

Ellen - I saw this ring before I came out of lurkdom, and I must say that is absolutely gorgeous!!! The recut is amazing and the setting could not be more perfect. I love the simplicity of the solitaire.
