So i've admired all the lovelies here from JKT and was debating getting something made...and i've been hunting for a RED spinel...and I found both at the same time! I love this ring, and I didn't realize that JKT's bezel rings are so delicate - the photos make them look more chunky!

Almost impossible take an accurate shot of the red with my iPhone but it's definitely red without brown or pink to me but the photos make it seem darkish and the PS post is also making the color weird....it's definitely a brighter red than how these look. Anyway, the bigger issue is that I had to pair it with my Paloma Picasso band because it's a size too big...I emailed JKT to see if she could size it down, otherwise I have to look for some sort of insert to get it down from a 6 to a 5+. Apparently the stone is from Dana @ MasterCutGems, it certainly does sparkle! SO psyched! :bigsmile:

Aww, thanks everyone! This was such a serendipitous find since I was really scouting all the cutters' sites but couldn't find anything that I liked or could afford...not that red is all that common,either! So I'm so happy with this one!

Turns out Julia doesn't think she can resize it without risk to the stone so I have to take it to my jeweler and get one of those sizing bands put in...but really one day I think i may have it reset in gold since the stone is just so gorgeous and I don't know if the argentium is really bringing out its fullest potential.
