No glamour shots yet and have already received it, but I reset my stone into a 20k rose gold Clara setting with platinum bezel. 3.09 OMC, o-p color.

Many folks will probably prefer the solitaire with side stones, but that particular stone is quite old and has a wonky outline. It also had an indented natural right next to the girdle, which was very thin to extremely thin. The stone, plus prongs, felt unprotected to me. The new setting is more of my aesthetic preference and it also protects the stone. I'm not really a solitaire or a solitaire with side stones kind of person.

Prior setting (still retained it for future)

That is fantastically beautiful! I love it! Wow.

And...the most recent three stone ring posted is @maita13 's gorgeous emerald cuts in platinum with engraving! The center diamond was previously in a more simple CVB setting with side traps, but maita13 had a wonderful idea for her reset!

@elizat this is absolutely beautiful!!! The stone looks much crisper in the new mounting. Love CvB.
Thanks, I think it does too. It really likes the bezel as well!

That is fantastically beautiful! I love it! Wow.
As always, thank you. xoxo!

I have just discovered this thread.

I have a few CvBs and I'm here to share my favorite. It's smaller then the average stuff that I see on PS when I lurk

Here's my engagement ring: A precision cut hexagon Padparascha sapphire (cut by Jim Buday and designed by Michelle Mai) and set into the Dahlia solitaire in platinum by Caysie. My fiancé an amazing job! Here's a couple of glam photos. I'm sorry about the tilt window looking thing going on. IRL, there is no window no matter how I look at it. Weird. Anyway, I love the claws and milgrain so much. I absolutely love Caysie's work. IMG_20220130_162524_583.jpg received_2884858128430143.jpg IMG_20210613_171620.jpg

Oh my, I love this!!! What are the stats on the stone? Such a cool ring and amazing proportions


This is so beautiful!! :love: Would love to hear deets on the diamond.

Thank you!
GIA .70ct 6.5x5.3 VeryLightPinkishBrown Daussi cut
I got it from DBL years ago :)

The Clara setting with black rose cuts and antiquing suit it very well

The stone had some wear and tear, and Caysie's bench was a bit hesitant about mounting it. I said let's try and see what happens, and if it breaks apart - oh well! She ended up being able to set it without any issues :appl:

Better photos today. Why do I even bother trying to take pics at night? :silenced:

I've said it before, but I just love this ring. Would you hate it if I find my pink stone I'm on the hunt for and have Caysie replicate it?

Oh gosh not at all :love: This is her Delilah mount and my inspiration actually had a pink stone! Let me find it on IG!


So she made this ring in 2019, and the milgrain "surround" around the center is much thinner from the face-up view. And of course it's got prongs ::) this stone needed a bezel for protection and I personally prefer the look of a heftier bezel, with milgrain on the inside edge, which seems to be her normal these days. But you could request whatever you like best!!

Yssie! Both rings are gorgeous and amazing! Can you tell me more about your blue sapphire ring? Do you have a thread on it?
