I wanted to share my reset with you. Daniel M has the 3 stone in the CAD stage. I'd like to thank you Athenaworth, because your/her design is what inspired my 3 stone.

Here's my story. This is a special gem as mention in my previous SMTB forum post. Its my birthstone and promotes the Love I continue to share with DH of 20yrs.[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/double-halo-4-ct-cushion-pink-tourmaline-ering-im-in-luv.162378/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/double-halo-4-ct-cushion-pink-tourmaline-ering-im-in-luv.162378/[/URL] It was originally in a double cushion because I love cushions, but I did not send the stone overseas to have it handmade to fit, so the cushion halo was made 1mm in diameter too big. The setting was not very secure for the gem which totally Freaked me out! I wouldnt be to fond of losing a 4 carat gem. :errrr: So I was on the prowl for a new setting. Im not very good at ring design or originality so I looked for a 3 stone I thought would be a great home for my pinkT. This time the pinkT will have 6 prongs and custom made so it will fit securely in the setting. (peace of mind for me) I wanted the 2 side stones to create some color contrast and to be very sparkly. Since mali garnets have higher refractive index than tourmalines, I chose a pair of round 4.6mm. I thought yellow gold would be better since the gem is a medium pink and the mali's greenish yellow. The mali's are extremely sparkly IRL. 8) i know its a weird combination. I sure hope I made the right choice. I hope the finished product looks Beautiful! :confused:

Here are the CAD's

Thank you Athena! You are so supportive and encouraging! I'm probably the only one who struggles with brain freeze when it comes to ring design. Thank you for sharing your design with us!

Nats, thank you very much! Your words are reassuring and very thoughtful. Thank you for being so kind. The 18k, pinkT and mali's together do look very rich. I can't wait to see it either!

I think the yellow gold with the mali garnets will really complement the tourmaline. All the yellow will look seamless.

A pink and green stone in yellow gold is a smashing combination - a little youngish, daring, yet seemless.

you are certainly not the only one who has brain freeze with setting ideas. I've had my fair share of episodes, lol

I can't wait to see how it turns out! I love Athena's setting, I have it saved to my favorites on etsy :halo:

It looked great in the double halo, and no doubt, it will look smashing in the new setting. Beautiful stone, I just read your post in SMTB and want to congratulate you on 20 years of love!

Wow, it looks very pretty, and I love how fresh a trellis setting looks in YG. The sidestones and YG blend together and really compliment the color of the center stone. Congrats!
