I think what diamond seeker means is this:
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.
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.
I was half dozing half surfing and saw the image and I was like huh who smushed the crown down, someone sure is gonna be mad.
It woke me up enough to think.... whew it wasn't a nightmare just a cad LOL
The table is much smaller and the ch much higher on the real deal which is gonna make it look even more kewl than the cads which is already kewl.
Yiiiiip!! That is so exciting! Any other photos?
