    the fairytale of the blue-green Afghan Tourmaline lady

    This afternoon I collected my new ring by Victor
    Canera with a blue-green Afghan tourmaline by
    Gene from Precision Gem. I am so absolutely
    happy with the outcome. Both stone and
    setting are more beautiful than I could imagine.

    I found the stone because of Sparklieslover's
    journey: she had an absolutely beautiful stone
    cut by the amazing Gene Flanigan from Precision
    Gem. I took the plunge and called Gene to ask
    whether he had more rough. Long story short:
    he cut me an amazing stone. The rough had a
    chubby cushion shape and I imagined it in the
    Trueste setting by Victor. The tourmaline
    came out more elongated and much heavier
    and I loved it immediately. The color is a lovely
    bluish green and it's very well cut.

    I was the totally lost on which setting to choose
    and discussed several options with the always
    very patient Victor via email. Victor totally came
    to the rescue and suggested the vintage inspired
    tri-wire shank with diamond cuffs. I loved the ring
    when I saw Victor's photo's and love it even more
    now that I have the ring on my finger. The ring
    has such elegant proportions and fluid lines!!
    The diamonds cuffs are so delicate in real life
    with the sparkly single cut diamonds. Victor made
    the ring in an astonishing timeframe by the way.

    Thank you Victor for again creating a stunning ring.
    I enjoyed the process and love the outcome. I love
    how you can read my mind.
    Thank you Gene for an amazing stone! Your customer
    service is outstanding. I appreciate that you were
    willing to cut the stone in a busy period (around
    Thanksgiving) just before you left for Germany for
    a few weeks.
    Thank you Sparklieslover, Ricezo, DK and other very
    helpful PSers for your guidance and advice during this
    process.

    On to the photo's... First the glamour shots from VC:

    I almost fell out of my chair, that ring is sooooo gorgeous!

    And look at it on your HAND, just beautiful! Love the hand shots!

    Thank you for sharing this. I've bought several stones from Gene, they are always stunning, and yours is one of the best I've seen.

    I really admire that setting. I'm sitting on a very large cushion Loliondo spessie and would you be offended if I used your ring as an inspiration for setting mine? I like your setting that much :appl:

    Thank you Michelez!!! Here is a video by Victor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyMZ1Xmq8pU&sns=em
    It's rather dark, but you will get the idea :lol:

    Thank you for your very kind words azstonie :wavey: And I would be absolutely honoured if you would take my ring as your inspiration ring. It would be great with a beautiful spess (please post it here :appl: ). You would have to ask Victor though as the setting is completely his design 8-)

    Big and Green it is Canul-Gal! The stone takes center stage in this setting.

    How kind of you Motownmama :wavey:
