So having finished my emerald ring earlier this month it’s time for my March project.

I’ve had these cabochon rubies sitting in my jewellery box for almost two years and think it’s time to get them set.

Going with a design inspired by Cartier.

Just dropped them into the jeweller this morning.

Very nice colour and great setting inspiration, and I too prefer raspberry/pink reds myself.

Can't wait to see the finished earrings!

The size of the earring setting is good to my eye in terms of coverage, but if you want the proportions to be more similar to the cartier, you’ll need to make it a tad bit smaller. I do agree that setting the melee in circular/oval patterns would look better than the lines. You could also graduate the size of the melee - going for something a bit larger near the ruby and smaller as you get further away. Excited to see these completed!

I prefer the halo look of the pave to the linear arrangement. Regarding size, maybe cut a row and start the tapering to the point sooner. (Does that make any sense?)

Yea I totally see what you mean.

I’ve asked them to scale down the size from 18mm to 16mm, set the diamonds in rounds not lines and increase the size of the diamonds somewhat. Because bigger diamonds can’t possibly ever be wrong

Still waiting! The emerald cab should be done very soon.

I still keep tinkering with the sapphire one. And buying more stones!
