    Here are some pics of my 20th anniversary replacement e-ring, made by Brian Gavin Diamonds. Brian and Lesley were completely great to work with and the ring was exactly what I was hoping for. Very good experience!

    Sapphire: 3.29ct, unheated Pailin, color-change, cushion cut
    Diamonds: approx. 1ctw, 2 tapered baguettes and 3 square step cuts on each side
    18k white gold

    Tried to get a little artistic with this first one using coral and hibiscus. Taken in bright shade.

    Thanks so much, everyone, for the kind words.

    I was a picture-taking fool this morning, so I thought I''d post a few others that turned out (95% were totally fuzzy or dark).

    In some lighting, the sapphire turns purplish. Early morning sun:

    OMG Pierreone! I love love love that ring!!!!! BGD did an amazing job, wow! That is soooo gorgeous. Do you plan on wearing a band with it?

    Thanks for posting this, I''ve been thinking of resetting my asscher into a bezel w/ sidestones that are also bezel/channel set and your ring is a great inspiration.

    Truly beautiful! What a gorgeous design.

    The entire ring is simply...harmonious. It just all looks like its meant to be; the sapphire, the diamond sidestones, the way the whole ring flows. It is really beautiful. Congratulations on your 20th anniversary and your beautiful new ring!
