Hi everyone---

I am excited to share some glamour shots of my new paraiba ring by David Klass. :love: David and his team did an amazing job, as I expected they would. It was such a pleasure working with him, and this will surely not be my last colored stone project with him.
A big thank you to all who offered their input on the stone and this ring's design. :wavey: Your help made this process a whole lot smoother and more enjoyable.

I will share more photos once I have this ring in hand. I might have some milgrain added to the gallery, so it may be a few days before the ring is shipped out.

O.M.G.. I am DYING over how much I love this ring!!! I've been searching for a paraiba I can afford forever, so have been living vicariously through all of the threads here :) I think the rose gold really made the paraiba pop, and I'm so glad you chose to do paraiba melee (although I think I advised against it--silly me!). :appl: :appl: :appl:

I really appreciated your input on the ring, lovedogs! I was driving myself crazy with the melee choices in particular, and it was so helpful to hear some outside opinions to help me organize my thoughts. I hope you find your paraiba soon! Affordable ones (relatively speaking) are out there, so don't lose hope :)

Gorgeous ring! It came out even better than I imagned it would. :love:
The paraiba really pops against the Rose gold.

David actually sent me pictures of your ring last night, based on a question I had asked him about color. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was yours and hightailed it over here to see more details. Simply stunning! I want, I want, I want! :mrgreen:

This is fantastic!

Did you send him photos of an inspiration ring? Can I see those? Otherwise, think I can see the cads? I've been looking for something just like this.

Hi, elle! Thank you! I can't wait to see how your paraiba ring turns out! David Klass is so talented, so I'm sure it will be amazing :)

Lovinggems, I appreciate the kind words! I used a combination of 1.3mm and 1.5mm melee for the halo and 1.7mm on the sides.

Hi, Chrono! Thank you! I take this as a huge compliment, given how unbelievably gorgeous your ring is. Maybe I can consider mine a little sister to yours :)

Thanks missy! :) Paraiba looks great in any metal color to me, though I am particularly fond of rose gold against my skin tone.

Hi, Niel! Thank you :) This is the inspiration ring I based mine off of, but with a few modifications.

Your ring is absolutely stunning :love: :love: :love:
The rose gold complements the Caribbean blue so well!
The Paraiba melee is an excellent choice. And the engraving!!!
I am looking forward to admire your pics.

Acinom, thank you again for your help in my decision to keep the stone, as well as during the design process! Your input was invaluable :)
I have to say that David really did knock it out of the park with the engraving. para2_0.jpg

Gah, so stunning!! The RG with that color is just perfection. Is it 14k or 18?

Enjoy!

Oh my...now I want a paraiba ring in rose gold (and rose gold hates me)

Is this the paraiba that you took a chance on even though it looked horrible in pictures? It was AMAZING when you got it and an even bigger transformation in the amazing rose gold setting. It's like Cinderella after her fairy godmother dressed her up for the ball. You obviously have quite the eye!

Congratulations!

Thank you all for the kind words! It is so nice to share my excitement with everyone on this forum, as there is no one around me that really understands my obsession with jewelry and colored stones :)

I love that, Sphene :) I've never been to the caribbean, but it does remind me of the neon turquoise water of Bora Bora where I honeymooned. It will be so nice to be able to look down and be reminded of that wonderful time.

Hi Laila, thanks! the ring is in 18K rose gold :)

Thank you, lilmosun! Maybe you could try 18K instead of 14K rose gold, or vice versa?

:lol: :lol: Yes, this is the same, very unphotogenic, stone. It does look much better dolled up, you are right. :)

What a beautiful ring, I love all the detailing and the fact you've kept to the same stones set in that lovely rich gold.
Great choices, enjoy!
