Im sooo in love with my ring. My fiance and I decided to go for a Bridget Durnell vintage inspired paved 18k yallow gold setting and I am just sooo happy with it. It is perfect for me. "D" colour ~ excellent everything ~ small diamonds "E-F" colour ~ VS1

I have to say I cannot thank Bridget herself enough for being the MOST helpful and wonderful designer. She went above and beyond to make this whole experience as easy and stress-free as possible.

We had a rather bad experience at a local jellery store and were unable to get the ring through them in 18k yellow gold. After we told them we would be purchasing the actual centre diamond elsewhere they seemed very uninterested in helping us :/ .. so when I discovered she had a website my fiance called to see if we could somehow order the ring through her, guess who answered the phone? Bridget herself. In no time I had my perfect ring on my finger :D

Some pictures to follow ~

Thank you everyone!
I will try to take some pictures [and hand shots] today while the sun is out. I noticed in America it is fairly hard to find 18k yellow gold in stores...most sell white gold or platinum. Im such a true "golden" girl. It really is very pretty. Glad you agree.

For those of you who are not familiar with Bridget Durnell...her website has some stunning rings and jewellery on it for viewing. She also does amazing custom work. :love:

Congratulations, your ring is beautiful! I spoke with Bridget myself when I was trying to decide on my setting and found her
lovely and kind as well. I didn't end up going with her because the setting that I loved was several thousand more than what
I ended up with. However, she could not have been sweeter. I think she is under-rated as a designer and not enough people
know about her.

Maybe your ring will change that!!!!

Last lot of pictures. Ring overload. I've yet to head outdoors to see how much it shines in the sunlight :)

I agree about Bridget Durnell. She has some absolutely amazing designs and I LOVE her vintage inspired "look". I knew instantly when I saw my ring it was "the one".

She was very sweet to me as well and FAST on replying to my emails. I highly recommend those looking for similar rings to give her a good look. She sure makes some whopper rings ;-)

I'm a huge fan of a high color diamond in yellow gold, and I love the design of the setting! This has got to be one of my faves on PS. :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:



BTW, I wear a yellow gols ring with a 'D' also, but it's not an engagement ring. :bigsmile:

Haha, thanks. Hey here's something you might get a kick out of, since you like 'D' diamonds and yellow gold. It's the thread about how my ring came to be. Definitely not the usual story, either. :lol: :lol:
