I received this sapphire as a gift from my husband to celebrate the birth of our 2nd child. The stone is a 1.5 carat unheated padparadscha, purchased from Richard Wise.

After seeing PS examples of Steven Kirsch's amazing work, I sent the stone to him to be set in this platinum/diamond halo (ring size 4.25). Customer service was wonderful and Steven's attention to detail impeccable. The ring is gorgeous :appl: !

Here are the pictures that Steven took.

Thanks very much, Yssie!

My little guy actually turned 3 last week! I received the stone when he was about one and only recently had it set. I have his initials and his older brother's engraved inside the shank "B & N" (not for "Baby Nurse", for "Benjamin and Noah" :D ).

Yes, I've had it for about 3 weeks and finally sat down last night to organize my pictures!

Thank you very much, I'm really enjoying it!

Anything new with your blue sapphire search, ds?

Wow! It is stunning!

You have an amazing collection of jewels amassing babynurse. We will need to see a thread with all of them together when your AVC and AVR are set.

I have a soft spot for Pads. Each one is it's own unique color and I love that. Your new ring is beautiful. It seems that Steven Kirsch has come through again with another impeccable piece, which is convincing me even more to use him for my wedding set reset. Enjoy your new ring. It's stunning!

Thank you! And your SIL is absolutely right, 3 is a whole lot of work. I love our children, but I'm so relieved that our family is complete :!:

Congratulations, on both your babies and beautiful ring.
But, I would have guessed that B&N stands for Barnes and Noble! :wink2:
Really, I like the idea of the babies' initialls. For us it would be S & K, which can also stand for DH and me. (Ideas...PS is always giving me new ideas...!)

Thank you, Dreamer D!

If I'm lucky enough to get both the AVC and AVR set by the end of the year, I'll take a "family" photo :lol: !

BTW, I sure do love the picture of your doggies in your avatar!

Thank you, marcy! It really does have an amazing orangey-pink (pinkish-orange?) color. I love Steven's pics for the detail-- mine are a little fuzzy, but the stone's color in his pics is a little bit brown. IRL it's a really pretty delicate color without any brown.

Congratulations on your baby's birth. What a wonderful gift to celebrate the occasion. Lovely ring, very well made, and I love halos to show off the delicate color of padparadschas. Enjoy!
