I think it is AWESOME!!! I usually like things that are unique and different, and I have NEVER seen that before which therefore makes it super cool in my book!

I like it. A lot, actually. It sure makes that center diamond pop, and I like the style of the ring. I wouldn''t want it for an engagement ring, but it would make a fantastic RHR because who doesn''t want to wear diamonds on both hands, but it won''t compete with the bridal jewelry. Anyway, I think it''s a pretty cool thing to do with a ''spare diamond'' (LOL!) you just happen to have lying around. It would be really gorgeous with a little black dress, so if she doesn''t have a new one you may have to spring for that as well -- something in an eveningwear satin....
oooh lumpkin you''re so right!! this ring is PERFECT for a black tie event!!!
Yesssss! I''m thinking New Year''s Eve party. It may not be black tie, but no matter where you''re going you can dress way up on New Year''s Eve.

SKR, I hope she likes it. I think it''s fab.

I''m a happy man - she loved it. Thinks it looks superb but unfortunately she noticed the cruddy prongs as well. Ho hum serves me right for going to a cheap jeweller Anyway the main point is she likes the style and the black pave - as it is. Just need to get the prongs and a couple of other bits sorted now.

And another one. This one hasnt come out so great. I also dug out the cert for the stone - given the basic info on the cert it's not a bad stone.

I am not sure... I like black diamonds in certain things, I saw a flower pendant where the center was black pave and the petals where white pave and it looked great. You don''t think she would like a halo around the diamond and then a row of the black stones coming down the sides of the band? I think it really has great possibilities...

The more I see it the more I like it! I honestly think it''s a very cool engagement ring!!
I would even pair it up with a non-black diamond pave wedding band to balance out the whiteness of the diamond.

Awesome job!!

Not in daylight but hopefully this one should show the contrast better. The stone keeps looking yellow in every picture I take and it's winding me up - it's pretty white face up in real life. It's supposedly a H color but the lab could be dodgy so I am probably looking more like a I or J (HRD).

SKR, I''m liking it more since seeing the hand shots. And really, only the last one you posted looks yellow. A lot of my lighting makes mine look yellow too (GIA G), so I wouldn''t get too upset. And as for HRD, I''ve heard from experts on here they''re comperable to GIA.

But yeah, when weather permits, try and get some more outside, I think it will help!

I think the ring is very unique and interesting. The contrast between the small black diamonds and the larger white stone is very eye catching. I like it.

I think it''s fabulous, especially after seeing those hand shots! I, too, think it would look beautiful with a pave white diamond wedding band...if possible...at any rate, I think it''s a very unique and beautiful ring.

Not a big fan of black diamonds on the whole. But I do think your center stone stands out this way!

HI:

Interesting! IMHO, had the white diamond been set (flush) into the mount along with the rest of the stones, it might have encouraged more fluidity/a cleaner line thereby promoting a more "elegant" feel.


cheers--Sharon

Congratulations. I think it would also look nice with some pave bands stacked on each side either in white diamond or alternating white and black dimaonds. It would really bring out the center stone.

This is a really cool ring. I love the contrast between the white and black diamonds, very cool!! I think a halo made out of black diamonds would be awesome, hopefully someone here will make one someday.

SKR,
Are you in England? You used the word Dodgy. My mother-in-law is British and I know black diamonds are a huge rage in England!!!! It is beautiful.

I was reading through this post - feeling pretty neutral about the ring. Then I saw the last picture and thought, "Wow, that is gorgeous!" I think it is stunning and unique - a very tough combination to pull off. And earrings to match - I''m envious of your wife!
