Finally received my new blue! And a little orangey yellow to add to my bracelet project, but will update that on the bracelet thread.
I was going to make this a pendant but as soon as I got it on my hand I thought there is no way I can’t make it a ring.
Trillions or half moon sides?
LOL! It’s 5.13ct, 9.1mm by 8.7mm. Unheated Ceylon. The certificate (local lab) says cornflower blue but to me this is a darker hue than my idea of cornflower.
it’s eye clean with just one tiny feather in the bottom. Native cut with rather a fat belly as so many of these stones have. But I’m not going to mess with the cutting as I don’t want to lose weight and also I think often these local guys know their stuff and the stone loses personality and colour when it’s tidied into a more precision cut.
Just ordered these stunning Cadillacs from Ivy and Rose. It’s pretty dumb to pay up for D colour and VVS quality for a pair of side stones but I couldn’t resist.
Oooh yes!! Loving those pics.
The claws are going to have to be really carefully done.
Would you go for all white metal or yellow gold claws?
Does the ring not have more “kudos” if it’s set in platinum?! LOL!
