Here's a start, and below is the link to my LIW "exit" thread with more pics!! This was a custom platinum piece done by my local jeweler. FI (got to get used to that!) and I both loved the Vatche Royal Crown, and another ring we saw online (from a site that we weren't comfortable buying from after researching on PS!) that looked sortof like a tree holding the stone in its branches (hard to explain). I really wanted a twist in the side and a split shank, we collaborated with the jeweler and his mold-maker to come up with this. I'm thrilled with the ring, and of course thrilled that FI and I now are officially engaged!!

It's neither huge nor "perfect" by PS standards, but I love it. I think the slightly higher crown gives it a bit more fire than some of the shallower ones I saw. The ring is a size 6 (again, giant-size by PS standards). I think it is partly the split shank and the delicate wires that are making it read so large in the pics.

you know, when I saw the wax I loved the unusual prongs and thought it almost looked like a volcano, I had no idea it would be so organic with the trees and I have to say - again - I really love this ring! I love that the design is unique and organic and yet still has a nice big diamond in it!!! I could go on and on... this is going down as one of my favorite PS rings :)

Cehra, I'm all ferklempt (that's poorly-spelled yiddish for tearing up!) again. It really means a lot to hear that -- I agonized over the stone and the design so much! I can't wait to see your ring -- I know it will be gorgeous! Thanks for helping me move the pics. I have more, but it was taking awfully long to "optimize" them and I had to get to work (b/c I'm getting so much accomplished here -- not!). I'll post more, never fear -- I've got to get the kitty delivery picture. Maybe that should go on our save the dates!

FI and I are of different religious backgrounds, so we felt that having a 'tree of life' with intertwining branches really symbolized the interconnectedness and strenth of our relationship and backgrounds. I guess the biblical reference makes the timing of the proposal that much more appropriate (Good Friday in the middle of Passover!). It was also three years ago this weekend (Easter weekend in the middle of Passover) that we found our beautiful, loving kitty as a stray. She is a very important part of our little family (and knows it)!

I LOVE it! So unique and strong, yet delicate at the same time. I also love its symbolism. Congratulations on your engagement!

WOWWW!! That is one of the coolest settings I've ever seen! Cehrabehra described it as organic and I agree!! Very worthy of your gorgeous stone. I can see it in yellow and rose gold with colored gems too....... gorgeous.

I keep coming back to look at it... it''s totally different from my ring, but it reminds me kinda of it too. and obviously I love THAT hahaha ;-) I love that it is totally unique. I have a real special spot for the truly one of a kind things that show up here. Sure, most rings are custom and different in some way, but they still fit a broad genre. Yours escapes that and I think mine will too :)
