Okay so. IT IS STUPENDOUS!

I can't even articulate how amazed I was at the difference in my ring when I opened the package. Steven has some serious talent!! And a great eye.

The pave is as perfect as any Leon or Durnell I've seen (and I've seen a lot of Leon pave). The halo is just... perfect. I adore the 1/2 pointers so much more than I did the one pointers. The effect is just a delicate gorgeous frame that totally makes my asscher the star. The profile is different but I like it even MORE now-- especially the way Steven set my center stone!

And the rest of the ring (Steven slimmed down the shank .2 mm to 2mm and lowered the head by 2mm and slimmed down the prongs) just... it works. I am so glad I kept my original shank. And I am so glad that Steven was able to work with some of my existing parts.

All the small individual changes add up to a huge difference in the whole ring. I would not hesitate to use Steven again. Especially for pave. The pave is incredible. TRULY incredible. His website, fyi, is www.timelessluxury.net

These pictures were taken by Neil and already posted in Rocky Talky. I will get my own up tomorrow. But I had to tell you guys what I thought of it, since I just got it this morning.

It loosk amazing Gypsy!!! Subtle changes, but overall they make a big difference. I like that your eye is automatically drawn to the asscher now because before the halo was more busy and you didnt notice the center stone as much. Just a nicer, cleaner look.

CONGRATULATIONS, LADY! Cant wait to see more pics!!! :love:

It is gorgeous! I'm amazed at how such subtle changes transform a ring! It is much more "seamless" now and the delicate halo really accents your stone perfectly! More pics please!

It's beautiful Gypsy. I agree with the others. The subtle changes and smaller melee really showcase your asscher and make it the true star of the show. Congratulations. I can't wait to see the hand shots.

Subtle changes = tweaking! Some folks poo-poo that idea but it works for me!

The ring truly does look better IMO - the asscher is the star just as it should be. I think all halos should be an embellishment for the center stone - not an upstage to it!

Really beautiful - enjoy!

It is gorgeous .. congrats!! It is amazing at how small changes can have such a big impact ... then it makes you wonder why you ever waited so long. Hehehe. Steven is amazing!

Out of curiousity, did Neil talk about the quality of the melee at all? I had appraisals done and my Leon melee was rated better than my Steven melee.

Gypsy, it's gorgeous! I lurked in your RT thread and have been waiting to hear what you thought once you got the ring back. That delicate halo is really beautiful, I can't believe what a difference such a small change makes! I loved your ring before, and I love it even more now! I really love a halo with a plain shank, there's something so elegant about it.

Can't wait for those handshots!

You know, I would have so thought that the previous setting was just right and virtually impossible to improve on. But seeing Version 2.0? Wow! The melee is way more delicate and teeny, and the lines of the basket are just :love: Absolute top of the line workmanship.

Awesome. I'm so thrilled to see some PSers going with new, awesome designers.

Hi everyone thank you for the kind comments. I'm really pleased with it. But I still can't find the cord that connects our digital camera to the computer. So I can't get the pics I took off of there.

So to keep my promise I did the best I could with the cell... but the results are terrible. Still, maybe they are better than nothing until I can buy a new cord?

Sorry again for the poor quality.
