When I was at Intergem in May I commissioned Hubert Gems to make this ring for me. It's in 14k yellow gold with some teeny diamonds on the shank. The spess was cut by Gene and is 2.49cts. This group of photos were all taken in indirect sun.

The sunshine shots make it look more yellow than it actually is.

I love it! I LOVE your design - the intricacy of the gold and diamonds on the shank, but the understated nature of it also means the spess is the star...I am always looking for rings that minimize the diamonds - not the standard bling you see repeatedly, and you did it perfectly!

I think its hard to do a lot at Intergem because there is so much going on. How did you choose them?

The stone glows! And the setting (as usual with your settings) is awesome. Can you tell us more about the stone? Its origin, etc...?

It looks so good on your hand! I bet it is very comfortable!

Kismet, you should post links to all your jewelry threads in one post, many of us would love to use your jewelry for inspiration! Or just to look at it before bedtime...

Very nice Kismet. Hubert did a fantastic job on the workmanship, setting, and details, and Gene cut a beautiful gem. I love spessartites in yellow gold too. :love:

Stunning, I love the unique and like Packy said, substantial settings that I've been seeing on CS lately.

Thanks! It is Hubert's design and not mine though. I think they had an oval stone in that setting at Intergem and I really liked it so I asked if they could make it to fit one of mine. The price was pretty reasonable too.

Thanks crasu! It is very comfortable; it's my first euroshank ring too. The stone is from Tanzania. I have the dimensions written down but not here at work.

It's pretty easy to find all my jewelry. On any post that I've made, just click on all topics by Kismet and it's all there.

Hehe, you started a trend! I was never one for overly dainty rings... my fingers just can't pull off that look.

Thanks! It was the first time I used them for anything. They did lovely work on the teeny bezels.

Absolutely stunning! The design is right up my alley. :love:
Thanks! It's one of their own designs and they had some other really neat stuff too.

It is a lovely stone. I was a menace on the road this morning while wearing it.

Thanks! The good thing is that it looks substantial but it doesn't feel bulky.
