I just realized I haven’t updated this thread with my final choice! After thinking it over and taking all of the comments into consideration, I went with 2A. I liked how this option added contrast to the pink garnets color without using much pink in the enamel colors.
Thank you to everyone for your votes and for helping with my decision! :))

My rings are done and will be on their way to me very soon! I wanted to share the pictures Holly sent me of the finished pieces with you all :)) .
The pink garnet is a shifty stone and it looks like it darkened up a bit once set, which I think is a very good thing, since I was worried the garnet might blend in too much with my skin tone. I‘m very happy with the soothing color palette of the finished piece.

I looooove these! I follow Holly's instagram and have been in love with your mint tourmaline! Those are my favorite colors as well!

I have a light blues/greys sapphire version of the same style from Holly and adore it. One of my BFFs and I have been talking about having "grown up friendship rings" made, with coordinating but not identical enamel colors. Adult ladies can still have friendship rings, right? :D

Thank you! I saw your ring when it was listed on Holly’s Etsy and I love it! Grown up friendship rings sounds like a great idea to me! I hope you share pictures if you do have the coordinating rings made :)).

They look gorgeous! I love the way enamel lets you play with color and these beauties are exquisite examples of that. I especially love the color play on the pink garnet. :kiss2:

Thank you! It is a fun way to add color to a piece. It reminds me of tiny paintings with gemstones in the center :)) . I’m looking forward to seeing the different moods of the garnet while wearing her.

Do you mind sharing the jewelers instagram handle so I can follow their designs?

The finished rings arrived today! The pink garnet ring turned out better than I had imagined! Thank you all for your help and your votes :)).

Even though this thread was originally about the garnet, I wanted to share a picture of my new mint tourmaline ring. The enamel colors are a bit more subtle on this ring in person than on the garnet ring since the design panels are smaller.

@2Neezers , those are all so pretty. It's also cool you shared photos of contemporary enameling. I see a lot on vintage pieces, but less so on modern. They're lovely designs.

Thank you! Holly’s designs are very pretty and it’s also nice not to have prongs to catch on things. I’m really enjoy wearing these rings!

Thanks! I have to admit that I hadn’t seen many enameled pieces before I came across Holly’s.
I had been looking for interesting ways to set my CS without a halo and her designs really caught my eye!

Wow! All three of these are beautiful, but the pink is the most eye catching because of the contrast. I love the family pic. Enjoy and of course, if you're setting anything else, please do share?

Thanks @voce ! I think the pink stone/setting combo might be my favorite too :)). I’m not sure what I will be setting next, but will definitely share in your projects in progress thread once I figure it out!
