This is sort of a cheapie little ring, but I ADORE it. It''s an onyx center (4 carats, I believe) with white sapphires surrounding it. I like to show it off, so here it is! I can''t believe I haven''t posted it before, I''ve had it a year.

While I''m here, a question for you savvy ladies - do you think the undergallery (the decorative curls) could be "cut out" without hurting the integrity of the ring? I''d like to wear a band with this but the gallery prevents it. From what I can see, the curls don''t support anything, they are purely for show.

I''ve got a black diamond ring that looks exactly the same - it even has a pierced gallery. I''ve found that I can slide two thin bands underneath and have the pear sitting on top. I took some photos just recently (unfortunately not a profile shot though) but this should give you an idea. The bands do need to be delicate though.

Hi MP!
Mmmm, I wonder if the structure of the ring would be fine, but know your fit would be poor if you cut out much of the undergally. You need that surface area to touch your finger in order to complete the circle that is the ring. If it was a smaller rock, then not so much of an issue. But you would loose the good fit and possibly make the structure weaker. Probably you could just cut out one side without impacting much? Or if you just mean cutting the swirls, but not the structure bar that sits on your finger? Hmmm, well I would do a bad job of it and then ruin clothes, but I think the structure bar -which looks delicate- might bend and then your fit would be wonky. You don''t want to get your finger pinched! I''d just leave it as is; just lovely!

This is actually a good idea, and it could work since the ring is a little big on me. Thanks! :)

Awesome ring!! I love the combination of onyx and white saphires!! I would keep the gallery, it`s perfect the way it is. Have you considered a curved band?
