I think what diamond seeker means is this: C1C60E4E-2025-4AE3-B868-62D2E6967D71.jpeg

Let’s call the top and bottom red lines I have drawn “rails” for the discussion. If we can make the rails th same width or slightly wider than the stone, it would make the stone look bigger than what you have.

Currently, with your rendition, the rails seem to “engulf” the stone. A minor tweak and, I think the geometry will work as well.

What can also be considered is that the width of the rails be the same as the width of the windmills at each corner. The green lines are my poor attempt with fingers on iPhone. 740CD81F-3CB6-4946-A83F-B5CAEDE9F1CB.jpeg

the width of the stone is 6.3mm. So you could make it 6.4mm wide??

Are you thinking of changing the entire band width or doing a "reverse taper" of sorts where the shank narrows down at the stone then gradually returns the original width?

Also, what is the purpose of the flaps/ears (red circle) on each side of the stone? The grain of the material looks like they are sloped at a different angle than the rest of the ring. Is the slope intentional or a by-product of hood photochop skills? Lol

Lastly, what are your thoughts on starting the breaks at the stone edge instead of having those flaps? It reminds me a tile job where they put the full pieces of tile in the most visible area and then put the short odd pieces in a corner where it is less visible. Except this is reversed on the ring. The "fillers" are near the star of the show. I drew a very rough sketch on the left side to illustrate better.

They aren’t flaps. It's groove.

It can be hard to perceive a three-dimensional object in a two dimensional drawing.

The stone mounts like Boonerings "Sidegrooves" (like Kenny's ring) to allow for light to enter all sides of the stone. A more traditional tension-mount may obstruct light from entering at the sides.

And I’m actually sticking with the design below. It's my favorite so far.

Just did the other mock-up to entertain the suggestions posted ;)2

Caysie & her team nailed it.

The CAD renderings took the design to a new level through the collaborative efforts of Caysie, her CAD designer and her Bench Jeweler over the course of this past week.

They really captured the strong architectural/industrial vibe I was hoping for. .. and brought in something that feels almost a little futuristic. Both she and I are super stoked about the design.

This team is a joy to work with, dedicated, passionate and frankly just brilliant! It’s only fitting to complement the genius behind the Octavia.

CAD drawings are complete and we’re head into production

Haha! Yeah, CAD doesn’t have an Octavia file. Maybe you should write one ;)2

I had to photoshop the face-up view in but it was too much of a fuss to do the other angles.

The tall crown is just gonna take it over the top.
