Hi all, a project I've had in mind for a while is a garden-themed ring, where the red stone is the "rose" or central flower.

I'm super keen for all opinions!

I decided on a lab ruby as I personally prefer them to earth-mined stones.

Some inspiration pics:

I quite like the idea of this one.. a vine-y bypass ring.
Do you think it looks better when the two sides only go half way around, or is it better when they reach the other side?

e.g. halfway:

e.g. the arms reach the opposite side and effectively form a border/halo

And the next super important question - 18k yellow or rose gold??
I lean rose, but my husband leans yellow. I think both would be lovely. Argh!

All opinions welcome! :)

The colored gem group recommends not putting red in rose gold for the most part as it decreases the contrast and makes it look more washed out.

That would be lovely!

Kind of like this??

Yes but perhaps with the 'petals' nestled closer to the centre stone and curved upwards instead of downwards... and the vine leaves along the shank instead of a plain shank. I think that would look stunning!!

If you decide not to go with RG if the contrast isn't as good with the red stone I would definitely do WG - the diamonds will blend into the WG petals!

Thank you those look great! I really like the gentle twist in the first one. It gives it a real viney feel :)

And the second one is gorgeously feminine! :kiss2:

Well, I ended up spending a LOT of time browsing the Greenlake Jewelry website!
I kept gravitating to these viney, leafy designs.

I just love the details on this.

I spoke to David Klass since he has been so highly recommended here, and he said he could do a vine ring :)

I decided on a modified version of this:

I prefer the RG to the YG, personally. I think it looks more delicate and feminine.

I had been leaning pretty heavily towards RG! I think it looks more muted and feminine too, which is why, because the design I'm now going for is a little bit thicker and less dainty, I'm now leaning towards YG.

YG + red stones also tend to have a bit of a royal look I think. Who doesn't want to feel like a queen wearing a custom ring :D
