yes, thanks!Date: 3/19/2007 7:57:08 PM
What i may try to photoshop for you is a side view right?
Correct.So let's clarify, you do not want any scroll work under the center stone, but some under 4 sides (to the pink ones).
I was thinking separate, kind of like the varna ring above, or the ornate Simon G one. Because the shared-prong would interrupt them. Let's try that first.Now do you want this scroll be the one for all the length of the 2 side baskets or separately? That's the only question you did not illustrate yourself with your pictures.
Not necessarily, the scroll can cover that prong from the side making it less busy if it''s what i understood you want. Think about it and let me know.Date: 3/19/2007 8:55:03 PM

Less busy is good, so if the scroll can cover the prong and look good and less busy, that sounds good to me! (I guess this has been part of my hesitation in going with this design, is that I can kinda picture it, but then again in the details, I''ve can''t quite.)Date: 3/19/2007 9:21:40 PM

That helps. I did think 10 and 6 seemed small, which is one of the reasons I hesitated. There is a Scott Kay with 0.15 next to the center which does look nice. Also that Jeff Cooper from Pearlman's that Blenheim and dee*jay tried on last year looked good in the photos they took (from the top view; unfortunately I wasn't crazy about the profile), and it has 15 pts and 8 pts respectively.Date: 3/19/2007 9:55:57 PM
I think 6 or 10 point sides would be too small and would probably go to .15 or .20 next to a 1 carat round. I tried on a Ritani with a 1 carat center and .25 sides and the proportions were wonderful so I think you could even go to that size if you wanted..

here you go, see the shared prongs between 2 side diamonds are almost hidden by scroll work of the length of both baskets.
Thanks! THat is a good idea. I will try to contact him tomorrow.Date: 3/21/2007 3:12:15 PM
i have an idea: Why don''t you ask Wink if he still has 2 pinks i reserved for my ring and then released them? And then if they would do it for you - estimate white sides going from there. You will have your center size and the ''pink end'' size and then i will draw the lines estimating which white sides will fit.
That is true. That was also why it was hard for me to even draft up this thread in the first place. Although I was tempted to start a new thread with just the photoshop one, so people wouldnt'' have to wade through the intro. part. But for now I will do what you suggested.Do not be upset about not many advises here please, it''s a very complicated design you are going for.
Thanks Jeff. That latter part is what I was kind of thinking, which is part of why I have been hesitant about this design. The part of me that thinks it could be very pretty and unique is so tempted to try it, but the part about getting it just right is what makes me hesitate, and wonder if I shouldn''t just go for something more basic.Date: 3/21/2007 3:17:46 PM
If you love the two-toned look with the rose gold, it looks like a very pretty and unique design. It will have to be executed well by a skilled jeweler, so choose your custom-maker wisely.
The only info. I have on it is I saw it at Charleston Alexander jewelery stores in the D.C. area, and I do have better pictures of it now than that xeroxed one in that thread. Except the ring I saw had a little sizing area at the bottom of the shank where there was no pave, while this one has an all-pave shank. Maybe I will start a new thread for you so I don''t confuse this thread.Date: 3/22/2007 1:22:03 AM
Hey Old Fashioned Girl,
I dont want to steal your thread but I had a quick question about a post you had made last year (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/which-profile-do-you-like-best-and-why.49968/) There was a picture of a 5 stone pave Simon G ring which I was really interested in. Do you have any info on it? I have a Simon G engagement ring and was thinking of getting something very similair (obviously with no center stone) for my wedding ring. If you have any info at all I would really appreciate it. Thanks
Irina, I got the info. from Wink. The diamonds might work - they are larger than I think the ones are in the Simon G baguette ring; I was guesstimating them to be around 3 pts. and these are more like 5, but that could be a good thing. Here are the specs:Date: 3/21/2007 3:12:15 PM
old-fashioned girl, i was thinking about the sizes of the side stones and though as i said i can''t estimate white sides having empty prongs as a reference, i have an idea: Why don''t you ask Wink if he still has 2 pinks i reserved for my ring and then released them? And then if they would do it for you - estimate white sides going from there. You will have your center size and the ''pink end'' size and then i will draw the lines estimating which white sides will fit.
They could taper to somewhere on the side of my center stone; I''ve tried on rings that had 15 pts next to a diamond of about my size, and it looks nice. Definitely no bigger than 20pts next to the center. I did a very poor attempt to illustrate it by hand:Date: 3/21/2007 3:25:14 PM
here is what i meant - we will be able to align all diamonds nicely having something for reference (blue center and pinks at the ends).
