Paging @KristyDarling :D...

I did say I’d start a thread after you post yours. So here it is...plus I’d rather do this than study:lol::lol:...

I had my first setting done by CvB and had posted it here...here’s the link for anyone who’s interested -

I didn’t pay that much attention to setting details. That is, I just bought whatever side stones were made available to me (NOT by Caysie) and wanted the whole to be done already. But when I came around, I finally noticed that the trap size were somewhat disproportionate to my center stone. Not only that, DSS has set it in- big time! However, the issue of upgrading the center was completely out of the question for my SO as she found the process of the first setting wholly symbolic for the both us. So I thought of ways to resolve DSS without changing the center and entertained the idea of adding french cuts to shank or doing a micro pave shank but still with 3 stone setup in mind. So I went ahead and sought to find the perfect side stones only to be derailed by the whole Enchanted debacle. I never got my money back which consequently constrained reset budget. Anyway, I won’t bore you with details of my search for what eventually became my side stones but suffice to say, it all worked out in the end (the stone search but not the $$:x2).

Here she is, my loud and proud Mei Mei, named after the ribbon dancer in Kung Fu Panda 3 because I love this scene in the movie and like the character, I somehow can‘t look away from her as in...

How beautiful!!! I especially love the handshots!! :kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:
Thanks, @MeowMeow! That means a lot considering I am the worst photographer around!

Every time I’ve managed to take a decent photo of the ring I’‘d either be sporting the worst manicure job or something included in the photo like a broom or a chipped fence or something unsightly that somehow I managed to photograph as well :lol:

My goodness - you have improved upon perfection!!

I remember the first ring and your story. I hope things have gotten easier for you. I think you must be one of the strongest people we have ever known around here and I wish you all good things moving forward!!

Folks, you really have to go back to the first ring linked in this thread to fully appreciate this iteration of the ring. What was beautiful is now stunningly gorgeous! I love it and hope you will too for many years to come. It is absolutely sensational! Thanks so much for sharing this new sparkly with us!

You just made me cry, @MissGotRocks...but in a good way.

Thank you SO SO much for the very kind words. You and the whole PS community have been my companion in this journey, pre- and post-lurkdom.

Yes, things are better, thank you. I’m very lucky to have had the support given and continue to be given to me. And besides, he‘s still with me and will always be with me. In fact, I can hear him say, in his own inimitable way, ”Is that even real, Mom?” :lol:
