0.75ct Umba sapphire cut by saltgemsco and set in an Argentium bezel ring by Dan M! Thanks a million to @peppermintpatty for selling the sapphire to me!

This was my first time working with Dan and he was very professional and swift in my experience. The ring is a size 5.75 and is a floating bezel style which allows another band to sit flush. I only got a few photos before shipping her out - I got this set as an intended birthday present for my SIL. As much as I loved the sapphire personally, I knew she would really love it.

Dan made this recently and I love the way it turned out. It is based off an antique ring design I saved. The center is a 6x4mm (.40ct) paraiba from Desertrose and the melee are gems from Yvonne's shop, 1.3mm demantoid inner halo and 1.5mm mahenge pink spinel outer. Set in 18k. I can't say enough good things about Dan's workmanship! Definitely worth the wait.

Dan supplied the .20ctw side diamonds and they are very sparkly irl.

Wow!!! This is such a gorgeous ring. I love the bright burst of colors! :love:

I would love to see more pics of it! Will you be posting it in the antique jewelry forum?

I don’t usually post in there but I’ll get you some band photos in a little. I didn’t think anyone would care about her lol

A few pictures of some things Dan did for me this summer. First, a re-do of my diamond halo pendant, reusing all of the parts and adding just a few more small diamonds. I wanted a piece with a little more "oomph," and I love this design. The only problem is now I'm looking at it and thinking what a fab ring it could be! :roll:

I've had these grey spinels saved for a couple years, planning to do a cluster but couldn't decide on a design.
But finally it's done and I got it today! 14k rose gold and blackened silver.
Dan did a great job on this!

Stunning ring, both the design and colors! I've debated making an eternity ring with RG and grey spinels, so it was nice to see this combo in your ring :)

Has anyone been in contact with Dan of late? I shipped some stones to him to be made into earrings a couple of months ago. The CAD process seemed to go smoothly, but after that I didn't hear anything. I emailed him two weeks ago asking for an update, and he told me he'd just picked up the casts and would complete the earrings within the next few days. I didn't hear back, so emailed him again, but no response. I imagine he is extremely busy, but I am a bit anxious now.

I heard from him earlier this week. From what he said it sounds like he got backed up due to some casting issues, but everything is fine now and he’s working to catch up.

Finally got mine today! But I created a thread about it in Vintage:


DANG, is that gorgeous!! What a cool design, and I just love zircons.
Your hand-model hands don't hurt, either.
