I love it!!! The rounded bangle is so rich looking and it will be so comfy!! Perfect repurposing of the stone!!

Thank you @Slick1! I’m so excited! I’m wondering if I can stack it. Will it scratch if I wore it with my Dbty?

MamaBee, FWIW I love the sapphire that David found for your setting (and how amazing to locate a stone with just the right dimensions!)... BUT... it is a darker stone -- certainly not pastel in any way. If you really don't think you'd wear it, what a waste it would be to have that beauty go unloved and unworn. So as much as I want to encourage you in a big big way, I'm not sure that's the right thing...

You’re right @Dee*Jay..I think it’s beautiful...and I know a darker color would really look better in that setting with those diamonds..but you’re right. I’m worried I won’t be happy after I have it a while because I like light colors. The plus of lighter colors is that they are cheaper because people like the darker richer colors better..haha I asked David to take a photo outside in the sun so I can see the color better. Thank you for your honest opinion. I appreciate it.

I think the sapphire is a great match for the setting. It is a good combo!

I wish you lived closer -- I'd lend you my sapphire ring (the darker one, not the one lighter I'm currently having made) and you could try it out for a bit.

Wear them together if you wish. I do think there could be some scratching but you can polish it out easily. You should wear what makes you happy!!

ETA I have used lipstick and a soft cloth and it seems to polish gold nicely. :lol:

Your bangle turned out fantastic! Did you get it yet? We will need some wrist shots.

As for that sapphire in the ring, YUM! But if you won’t wear it, put a less expensive (lab) sapphire in it and sell it on LT. (Or put that one David found in there and send it to me :))

Haha! I love that setting! I kept the diamond cushion in there too long because I didn’t think he could get the diamond out without damaging it. The diamond is gorgeous...and the setting is gorgeous...just not together.
I actually did purchase a lab sapphire for one of my previous settings. I’ll be getting the sapphire soon.
I’m going to put a mined gem in this one.

@MamaBee what about a beautiful tourmaline-lagoon or seafoam?

I sent my Bee bangle back to David a few weeks ago. It was too large. I decided to have it closed with a clasp. I’m waiting with wet hair in front of the window for the truck! It’s
due any minute!!

I love your bangle! It looks lovely on you. DK made a bangle for me that I love and is in the process of making a second one. I love how these look and will definitely be stacking mine.
Can’t wait to see your sapphire ring when done.

If my second covid shot isn’t cancelled due to shortages of second Moderna shots in my area...I’m wearing everything I have like a Christmas tree! I’ll stack them on then! :lol:

Thank you @AuntKiki! I didn't either! It‘s subtle so people will probably think Bee is a CZ which fine with me..That’s if I ever see people again...haha
